Thoughts?

https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PaAS

Some of you have owned these. I'm looking for home use, something other than one of my PA systems.

I think you'd get more bang for buck (and better sound) out of a pair of studio nearfield monitors.

Internal keyboard sounds?

Doesn't the PAas amplify the entire keyboard? I don't care about the mic or aux inputs.

Good point...but..

I'm trying to avoid stands and cables...additional power supplies.

By the way a pair of good near field monitors, are definitely pricier.

An additional explanation.

Most of the time, at home, I'm using headphones with my 4X. But from time to time I ask my wife to 'listen in' on an arrangement. I need an auxiliary sound source that's close to sounding live without taking up a lot of space in our den. This isn't a recording studio.

Even the Tyros 4 sound system(or the similar current Genos system), that I had, had more speakers/cables than I want for my 4X. For home playing that is...

Yes, it will amplify everything you play on the kb, or play through the dual MP3/SEQ player ... plus the mic, if you choose. It'll even do aux in sounds, but ONLY if you choose to bypass the mic preamp. This is cool as an input for a sub-mixer for other modules, or synths etc

So, how well does it reproduce the sound of the 4X?

It just snaps onto the PA4X and has contacts that act as the feed. No wires, nothing - very handy I think for what you want. It does lack bass, but you can fool with the overall EQ through MAXX
