The 9000 is not out yet in the US. The retail price for this model will be $3100.00 according to my price sheet from Yamaha. I am the dealer in California, most major companys refer customers to. I sell all the major lines except technics, and if you have been following this forum for a period of time you will see that many of my customers have come from this forum. I will not be able to give you a discount price until the product is actually available here because Yamaha could still change their mind about the pricing. There was also no mention in the price list about the price and size of the available drive.
I still have 2 PSR 8000's in stock and they are being sold with hard drive, and 16 meg of extra sample memory at very reduced prices. If you or anyone else might be interested, call me at my store.
