Princess,
I bet if your friend gets the 500, he(she) will wish they had the 800...LOTS more there to offer.

Why not save a while and get the better board. IMHO it will be a keeper, so why not get the one with all the goodies.

In addition:

- no mic input or vocal harmonizer
- no aftertouch
- non colored screen
- less wattage speaker output (I think)

But the 500 (to me) sounds extremely good too.

Thanks Zuki,.... I can't say it enough,I think the pa800 is the best, my friend Doc is going to our music store in Green Bay Wi. today, he already played my 800 yesterday and want's one bad. He is now playing the technics kn5000, and the floppy no longer saves, he needs a new key board,but It's that money thats hard to get, doc plays at a lot of small jobs, I hope it will work out for him,thanks ....Paula

Hi Doc,
welcome to the forum.
I think the PA500 & PA800 sure a lot in common ( including styles).
If we can help in anyway , let us know.
best wishes
