I was much the same as FransN when I had my first beer.
I'm afraid I can't agree with your assessment that Yamaha sounds "thin"...compressed
You haven't been listening to and playing the SA voices at all, have you?
You certainly have every right to your opinion, but I'm afraid in this case, and from my own experience...it's just plain wrong.
And regarding thin
...the DX-7 sounded "thin" but it didn't stop it from becoming one of the best selling synths ever.
The Korg M1 sounded "thin"(especially it's piano)...sales were very good...probably exceeding the aforementioned DX-7.
It's nice to discuss the relative merits of one arranger's sound to another...but they are just "relative" and will mean completely
different things to each type of player.
All this is certain
, and anyone who begs to differ, may as well be sitting on the beach in a robe telling the ocean to go away.
So, having cleared that up
....are you getting an Audya?
