OK, got it in and even my wife helped me unpack (a first), as she knows I was excited.

PROS:

Nice looking board
Great screen
Good enough navigation
Speakers are excellent

CONS:

In now way does it offer the power of my 3x (I am mixing both through my mixer with flat setting)
Less style categories
No fill buttons / auto fill is quirky (again)
Some great styles from the 3X are gone, or reworked, not to my liking
Sounds boxy to my ears

These are my first thoughts and I took a break after 3 hours. I;ll head back later and try to forget about the 3X in comparison.

At this moment, I would dump it for another 3X or a 4X 61 key, but afraid I might not like the 4X either.

A bit disappointed and a bit down...... more later

When I first got my Pa700 I thought it was a bit flat sounding when compared to my Pa50sd but when I changed the Eq settings on the Pa700 it came alive.

I set some different settings, but it's much more than that. I have too much time and effort invested in the beloved 3X. I have the 1000 boxed back up and will seek a 61 note 3X. That'll make me happy and lighten the load, + a mirror backup. What was I thinking???

Zuki ... It is always difficult to go from the TOTL to the MOTL in anything ... It's like if you were driving a fully equipped 10 years old Mercedes Benz and went to a brand new mid range auto ... it might be newer, but not necessarily better ...
That said, I think your decision was pretty quick ... It's hard for me to imagine that the 1000 could be that bad ...
But we all have our likes and dislikes, and expectations ...
I am sure you did what is best for you ...
Best of luck with your next 3x ...

PS ... I told you I would have traded my Kn6000 for it !!!

Hi zuki

Your pros / cons comparison is interesting but just a little unfair . You can’t fairly say the absence of styles and features on this keyboard is a con because you are comparing it to a better top of the line keyboard . We all like to get bargains but but come on 🤓.

I wish you joy and happiness in finding the instrument that suits you best .

I think I saw some clips of you playing on YouTube recently . Really enjoyed it . Too busy for me to comment on most postings on the zone but sorry I did not commment earlier .

Best wishes . Worth
