Sorry guys, my bad - looks like I was given some erroneous info regarding a "Successor" to the VA-7.
Googled around for info on the KN-8000 but all i could find was the 6000 and 7000.
Not fair to compare them then, as those keyboards seem firmly planted in the "home user" category - hope the 8000 is a quantum leap beyond those keyboards.
Th VA-7 STILL surprises me (and my audiences) to this day, and it STAGGERS me that this keyboard is not more popular than it is.
Quite frankly, I don't know what I'd do without it.
Btw, thanks for the *ahem* "quick" reply...
Let's get this forum jumpin' again, shall we?
