Hope this helps

Yes, thanks for this Bill. The time had expired on editing my last post, but I was going to say something similar.

Often something is technologically better on paper, but the so called improvement may actually be imperceptible.

I am a novice moving up from a Yamaha PSR-E423 and for $249 it is a great little keyboard to learn on.

In moving up I had been waiting for the release of the Yamaha PSR-S750/S950. I like using technology but the S950 is probably overkill for me (e.g. I probably would never use the Vocal Harmonizer and probably some other features too). The S750 compared to the S950 seemed to have more value for the dollar.

Then along came the Pa600! Lots of features, a great large touch screen, a super good price, etc.

Advice to me and others has always been to listen to what sound you like then decide, but for someone used to playing a $249 keyboard any good board will no doubt sound better. I contacted KORG Canada and they indicate stores will have them by mid to late November and I don't think the S750/S950 are available until November either.

I had asked this earlier but got no response. When you consider a keyboards ability to adjust cutoff, resonance, reverb, chorus, attack, release, etc. one would think that a good keyboard should be able to be tweaked to emit the sound you want anyway.

All-in-all so far the KORG Pa600 is my choice and come November it may be time to order one.

Yes, you can plug an external MP3 player into the 750

Something to consider is that the PA600 has a chord sequencer. This is a really handy tool for beginners and people wanting to work on their RH playing technique...

Lay down ONLY the chords for the song the first time through, hit play on the CS, then practice your soloing and sounds over the backing as it repeats for you. Plus you can still change variations and do fills, etc. while it plays.

Killer feature. Yamaha do not have it.

The new PA600 display, a 800x480 TFT graphical color touch view (whith a lot more resolution than Pa3X display!), is a pleasure to use and enjoy its infinite possibilities. Beside this display, PSRs (and perhaps Tyros too) seem quite old to my eyes, and its management seems quite outdated in this era of touch phones.

I disagree. After testing the pa3x and psr s910
Last year I chose the s910 because to my ears it
Sound better than the pa3x in both styles and sounds.
The s950...korg who?

Well I don't know what were you checking but to compare S910 to pa3x is imature at best.How did you try it? Did you gobthrough the sam PA,or how??
Vocal processor on pa3 is worth more than half of 910.
I am not sayinh 910 is a bad instrument.I like it too,but you can't compare those too.

The soprano sax,most of the guitars,trumpets are far superior on the s910 than the pa3x. Those are my primary instruments when considering a new keyboard. Korg is no match to yamaha.

I played the korg using the speakers than attach to it. I played the yamaha with only the internal speakers of it.
