I have noticed this. When played through a PA, some of the synth, bass and drum sounds on the Korg Pa500 are much fuller than the Yamaha PSR S910. The guitars and saxes(not all saxes sound good with the PA) are much better on the Yamaha. As a slight deviation from the topic, I still find the Roland products whether its a BOTL or TOTL, they sound great out of a PA. Drum and bass are great on nearly every Roland arranger out there.

To get back to the topic, price wise, it would be fair to compare pa600 and S750. Third party styles(thousands of them available for Yamaha), ease of use(what you are used to is a lot easier to migrate to), dealer support, style genres you play(Some of the styles are over done on Korg, Ballad styles are great and non interfering on Yamaha) etc. are all going to influence your choice. And to my amateur ears, the tonal quality in the demos for Pa600 is slightly better than the older Pa800. And the S750, I haven`t heard demos yet but the way Yamaha trickles the technologies every release, presume it will be the S910 sound engine which is also good to my ears smile

Good luck in your choice. Whatever you use its the right one for you till a new model comes up smile

I play everything through decent studio monitors. I honestly can't argue with how much fuller, and more live the Korg's sound.

That's not to say that the Yamaha's aren't fine, should you like that compressed, CD-like sound, but if your goal is to sound like a LIVE band, there simply is no comparison.

Well... Maybe the S950's live audio drums raises the bar somewhat, but unfortunately, with only 25 of the 400 styles being audio drums, the vast majority of what you use will still be that washed out Yamaha sound. I still strongly believe that Yamaha should forget about audio styles, and simply concentrate on more live sounding drum KITS.

That would do wonders to improving the Yamaha's, IMO.

Donny, I am not comparing the sound coming out of the keyboard speakers to the stereo PA sound. I meant the Korg Pa500 and Yamaha PSR s910 played out through the same stereo PA(BA-330)

Correction EDIT: Any further deliveries of the S950 appear to have been pushed back to December due to a firmware update. (e.g. http://www.gigasonic.com/yamaha-psrs950.html)

(By pushed back I had including the UK where they have had an initial shipment for a week or so.)

Called in to a local shop a few days ago and was told I couldn't get hold of a 950 until December. Tried the model on demo. It was nice but I HATE it when you can't get a chance to sit and try in peace and not have the shop employee linger around like a bad smell - very annoying. I digress........

Only had a quick go and no doubt it is a nice sounding keyboard. My initial reaction to the keybed wasn't great though.

Also, I've enquired in the cities 2 main music stores......neither will have the Korg PA600 in stock. I really wanted to try it out but now it seems, if I did go down that road, I would have to buy on others opinions and online demos. Not ideal.
