Regarding the keybed, it's not a piano. Personally, my arthritic fingers actually like the light touch. It's responsive, but in a different way from piano touch. It takes a totally different approach from piano keybed.
Wish the keys were a tad larger on PSRs though.
I find the keybed on PA3X really good and would probably suit most types of players. Of course it's about double in price.

Yamaha knows pianos........so marketing directs those who want piano keys toward their clavinova line for the serious piano arranger player.

Thanks,

Hi
with the audio technology, sounds like they're trying to do a bit of a catch up with korg, but, at a far cheaper price ( bear in mind, korg does have a sampler). Be interesting to see how involved the user is as far as the drum loops etc go. Whether you can create your own, or you have to buy theirs.
Might finally be time for an upgrade ( my psr1500 , of course) haahaa

Far cheaper? The Korg PA800 cost here in Holland 1700 Euro. The Yamaha PSR S910 cost 1950 Euro and the S950 will cost more. Not very cheap IMO. For that price I at least expect a touch screen and aftertouch.

But aren't you comparing street price versus retail price?

No take a look at http://www.bax-shop.nl/keyboard/bekijk-a...30&limit=30

At the moment most shops are dumping the PSR s910 for 1600 Euro to make place for the new model.
