Larry W is really fast! From inquiry to evaluation to purchase in less than 20 hours and half of them dark. Wow! Guess I'm getting old. For real or an ad?

Grandpa Doug, A friend of mine brought his PSR 2000 to the house and showed all the features etc. He had a KN-2000 then 3000 and then a KN-5000. He sold it and went to the PSR 2000 At this time he likes it so much that he feels that he will not return to Technics. He helped sway me to the new PSR 2100 after hearing his 2000. I had no opportunity to see or hear a KN-2600.

Then again "YOU" said ( if I remember correctly)that although the voices are not as perfect as Technics, and since I play for the senior group of people and health care centers, the people probably would not know the difference anyway. Now that helped also.

I'm 83 years old now, but in my younger years played the Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, (I really liked that one)and piano. I had one other technics before my Technics KN-920 which I just sold.
Excellent sound and voices but thought now I would purchase my last keyboard. I hope to live to be about 110 hoping to have all my sences and still entertain. Therefore I did make a purchase that I hope that I will not be sorry for.
I tried to Thank you before for your comments by e-mail but it kept bouncing back.
Anyone who want to kid me about the switch please do so, I will not be offended.
Larry W.

John,
Sorry I stated it incorrectly

What I said:
Strangely the 2600 has no floppy drive like it's Papa, the 7000.

What I meant :
The 2600 has no floppy drive, even though it's Papa, the 7000 does.

Ya See Its the Pennsylvania language I grew up on...know whadda mean ?

Whole wheat or rye? All that time to decide? Maybe you need to decide from a spec sheet instead of tasting them. Be sure the one you pick has an exlax survival kit. Donít want that rye to get stopped right in the middle of things and before it comes to the end. Better yet, Larry, get a friend. That way you can sit in the old rocker and wonít have to make any decisions. If his taste donít work out for you, you can always blame him. Nice to always have a fall guy handy. Itís done in the best of circles today. Personal responsibility is old fashion as you may well know. Anyway, keep your posts coming. Very informative and they sure make this forum a pleasant place to visit for information and the good of the soul. Know whadda mean?

J. Larry,
As soon as you play with your new KN2600, let us know what you like/dislike. Give us a detailed review.
Isn't moving from a KN6500 to a KN2600 a downgrade?

Just venting about Technics.
Larry Warner said,"Not being able to get a price for the KN-2600 from two dealers ".
Why can't the dealer get prices from Technics?
The Technics (Canada) website does not have an email address. They also don't show the KN2400/2600 on their stupid form. Their Technics (non keyboard) email is not functioning. I sent an email to Technics U.S. and still did not get a reply as to a dealer in Toronto. If it is that difficult to demo/buy a Technics, what will the service level be like?

Regarding the Technics trouble in getting prices etc. Before my ordering the PSR
I went to Technics web site and clicked on Keyboards. They do not show the new KN-2400 or 2600. They do show the KN-7000. It was rather discouraging not able to find out anything about a new product they are trying
(?????) to promote. I would have ordered
the PSR so soon if I could have found out more information about the KN-2600. I have called several other dealers since and none still know anything

CORRECTION - I would not have ordered the PSR so soon if I could have gotten more information on the KN-2600, seen one and tried it out. At least I was able to do so with the PSR 2000 that my friend brought to my house, and knowing the 2100 was an inprovement.

Larry,
I would like to ask you what you think of the live Piano and sweet violin on the PSR2100, but I'm not sure if this is appropriate on this forum.
