Is the PA900 worth the money and is it better than the Yahana PSRS950? I had a tyros 4 and traded it when I bought my organ so I certainly don't expect it to be anything near that. Would appreciate some feedback. Thanks a lot. Don

Just think: If the PREVIOUS pa800 costed about $1000 more then this new korg pa900, I think its a terrific value for the money. In addition to being BETTER then the pa800.

However, if you are not familiar with korg's OS, and it would take you a long time to learn it, it might be better for you to get the psr s950.

Thanks a lot for your input. I am not familiar with Korg OS, I had the Tyros 4 and it was not that hard to learn. I think I will wait and see what the new Yahama flagship will be.

While coming from a very user friendly technics kn6000 OS, it took me a while to learn the KORG OS, but like anything else new, each process you learn makes the next one easier ... NOTHING is learned in a day, and it was worth the time learning the KORG OS ...

I agree with Tony but might add that the korg is really worth the effort.

Its interesting to note that Yamaha sets the tempo in the market... S950 comes first, followed by the roland BK9 and korg 900.. (Incidentally all start with 9... is that a coincidence?!!). And now we have 3 distinct options -

a) S 950 has a few "real" styles and close to Tyros 3.

b) BK 9 is a 76 key arranger with a dual LCD, which is a first in this price segment;

c) PA 900 is 1K $ less! than the 800, and very close competitor to the above.

So suddenly, its now difficult to choose...
