Nope...., I was just hoping that Roland would continue with the affordable price on their lower line like the E-09. Using speaker housings and base shells of their existing keyboards and then dropping the patch modify hardly justifies a price jump of $150. Just goes to show how arranger makers still go for the pockets of the home players.

well, i was expecting a higher price than GW8, even though it is hard to justify for it.
that being said, it's more obvious now that GW8 is a better deal, and those used to work with instruments with no speakers will surely prefer it anyway; those who are looking for an arranger, with speakers will just have to pay for that.

man, those speakers must be something really good!!

For the price difference, you can get a Logitech or the like sound system that will blow the crappy built-in speakers away.

Has the 'Favorites' feature got dropped?

Me, I'm kinda temped by the new AX strap on keyboard. Looks like a Sonic Cell engine, so easily good enough for gigging, and onboard sound makes making a wireless version a snap compared to transmitting MIDI...
