OOPS!!!! sorry ... here is my reply again.
well .. it depends on the price Vs. feautures
and the EM-50 has lots to offer..
you have great sounds , 10 W + base refles..
great styles .. and I heard that roland is
going to discontinue the EM line altogether..
so I am not sure if you will be able to still find it in stores... however ... the limited
side is : 24 note polyphony..
the 8 custom styles must be loaded or saved as a single set .. so you can't make your own set .. I am getting a EM-50 oriental .. still begin shipped to me in canada... but the EM-50 manual is online .. at rolandeuro.com ...
