for those of you who upgraded to the Taiyo 1.5 system, they have just posted a 1.6 that corrects the bugs in 1.5 that were not there before

Hi
Downloaded 1.6, tested two disks, all OK, then installed and it hung up on Disk2 (chattered with a disk seek). Not a good feeling. Decided to switch off. Downloaded Disk 2 again, and started a second install, and God Bless Me, it worked. One very apprehensive keyboard player here!!
I must stop getting sucked in by the latest and greatest (see post elsewhere about vocalisers).
Good night from Australia
Keith

ALWAYS check the disks in the 7000 before performing the upgrade

Personally I only see a need to risk upgrade if a reliable source has described a concrete reason or bug fix that improves a function that you make use of. If you can't tell any difference afterwards, what's the point? If you've introduced new bugs even rather less point

Logic and desire are always fighting one another. Logic is very useful and rewards one well. Desire is very strong and domineering, suppressing logic and robbing one of genuine rewards many times. Anyway Alec, I do appreciate your logic in approaching the wisdom of system upgrades. My first introduction of the rarity of logic was when I married Ruthie. Taking note, I looked around and soon found out pretty girls run on a different system. In doing my best to upgrade her logic area it soon became evident there was no slot to introduce any into her. So using my logic I found it logical to accept her illogical approach and to live with her desires and make the best of it. That logic worked out very well so now I use logic to temper desire rather than try to overcome it. Plenty of room now for understanding and love to flourish with Ruthie and me. So also on these forums. However I still dig your logic.

Just upgraded my 7000 to 1.6 - no problem, as usual. It's nice to keep up-to-date, especially when it doesn't cost anything!
One little tip for "upgraders": Give your diskettes a FULL FORMAT before loading the upgrade - even if they are new and supposedly pre-formatted. You should then have no problems with corrupt diskettes.

maybe I should have explained that 1.6 fixes bugs in the unofficial 1.5 that were not there in the official 1.4

I seem to remember that Technics were going to publish an update(s) on the kn7000.com site. What happened to that?

Maybe they didn't publish it because they knew it had BUGS
I'm still happy with 1.3

I can tell you that my new KN7000 that I got recently came with v 1.4.
Just recently Eddie Williams sent me V1.5 which I installed without problem.
Eddie emailed me the two discs.
Thanks Again Eddie
Best to all
