Hi everyone,
I am interested in purchasing the MP3 board for PA1x (some people say it is the same as PA-800).
Thanks,

No it is not. The EXB-Dual MP3 card on the PA800 will not fit and would not work even if you did. I have been looking for one (an EXB-MP3) for a couple of years now with no success.

The card was banned in Europe/UK as it contains substances that are no longer allowed in the EU...it is why the production ceased so quickly (relatively speaking) after the PA1x was released.

I wonder what is it that a regular printed circuit board with electronic components can have. Some of these EU regulations are total nuts.

it is a different power connection system...the insert pin array along the bottom is about the same, but the power connector is different - totally! Plus there is no software in the OS 3.01 of the PA1 to actually run the dual card either...

Believe me I have gone through this with Korg Italy reps!!!!
