This is the most comprehensive listing of styles I've seen as of Monday morning. It's apparently the sameas the yamahacorp link which Ian placed yesterday but updated from yesterday.

The Tyros5, 76 key...judging by the excellent demos...is easily the best Yamaha keyboard to date..

I can notice a improved sound over the acceptable Tyros4..

The piano, is better...the guitars, thanks to the amp simulator are excellent..the drums sound completely different...most of the sounds are great...

Although the organ mode is good, I think it is much more Wersi organ and Vox sounds...the B3 sound is lacking a bit to me...but still good..

The Electric pianos I heard did not inspire me (surprised)..

I should say I have never seen a bad Suds-Clavier demo..they do excellent demos....the real test will be hands on and comparison to my bench mark smile

The first Tyros and 2, and 3...I never cared for ..Tyros4 was getting there....and Tyros 5 seems to be better than any Yamaha keyboard including their WS too..

Definitely an improvement over my very "acceptable" Tyros4, to be sure, and in several areas as well.

If I was hankering for a 76'er in an arranger, I'd certainly find a way to buy a Tyros5-76, but I have never needed more than 61 of those awesome FSX keys for arranger-style play, and only needed more for solo piano, which, in my case, has to be 88 weighted action.

I certainly agree with Fran in that the Tyros4 was the best since the Tyros model came out (until the new T5, that is) and, despite having mine for nearly two years, I'm happy to say the honeymoon is still on, and shows no signs of turning into an everyday relationship.

I really feel the prime candidate for a Tyros5 is a Tyros2, Tyros3, S-series owner, although some with a T4 will always go for the latest, and if they have the wherewithal to do it, why not?

I've also noticed that quite a few T4 owners, have opted for the 61 key Tyros5, although the 76'er has likewise proven quite popular, and has garnered a few "new to the brand" users, unable to get a TOTL arranger from the company they usually buy from.

Again, I'm very glad they kept the screen and FSX action...I liked both very much indeed, and had zero complaints with either.

If these are "baby steps", as some refer to Yamaha's forward movement, at least the baby is upright, moving confidently and can dance as well.

This appears to be much better than other certain companies (who I won't name in the sake of decency) who, after tossing the first baby out with most of the bathwater, substituted a "Baby Alive" doll and hoped no one would notice.

They noticed.

Ian

Ian,

The manufacturer you try to slander is still lightyears ahead of your favourite, even five years later. Don't be so nasty.

After seeing the Demos and listing to the A/B Tyros 4 vrs Tyros 5

I can say they are truly different the EP section sound better in the T4 the Grand in T5 sound great i am happy for that the split left hand bass is going to prove to be nice, the ensamble section is going to be very cool how it going to assign the parts cant wait to see how that works , 76 keys and 4 outs over and above the left and right out is going to be great in studio if they did it right ? over all i am going to keep T4 and add T5 there is a good difference so both can be used Guitars sound very good in T5 and amp sims very good seem like this came from Kronos they where first to do it but yamaha see to have Knocked it out of the yard.

I am hoping the toddle between Midi file and mp3 will let me do 2 midi files like in PA3X this is going to be Fun . Ron
