Hi Alex,
you know me a little , with the smiley at the end I meant I just was kidding.
BTW. Bebop was right. Optional on the KN800 was a 720KB floppy drive. I thought 1989/1990?
Normally Technics produces each two year a new model, so next summer we will meet the new KNXXXX
Greetings,
Cees

Cees you are close to right. The kn800 came in Feb of 1990 and I bought the first one that got to San Jose. It also had an optioinal Memory Card Sy-p4 that was a whopping 16 KB of ram in a little plastic case with a write protect switch for about $100.00 USD, in case you didn't want to buy the optional floppy drive.
I will include the optional floppy and the memory card with the KN8000 when the lucky buyer emails me I played it all morning one day last week with the Americana software styles and it really was way ahead of the game. It is a good thing I had the KN7000 ordered before I was playing that KN800
Best to all,
Bebop

My first Technics product was a spinet organ (SX 43??) that was probably the start of the microprocessor based musical instruments for Technics and led to the development of their keyboards. It had eight processors and had some of the characteristics of the current keyboards except with very limited arranger styles.
When I decided to go the keyboard route, I had been so satisfied with the organ that I went immediately to the Technics dealer and ended up with the KN2000.
And now the terrific KN7000.

Hi
And I have new KN7500 .
It is new kb, has a great harmonizer, 76 keys, 3.500 sounds, and a 15" color screen.
It smiles me when I play well, don't smiles when my playing is bad.

My first Technics Keyboard was the KN1000, followed by the KN2000, KN6000,
and now the KN7000. If I get as much enjoyment from the KN7000 that I got from my KN2000
It will be worth the expense.

My first Technics instrument was a U90 organ. I traded that in on a KN6000, and then a KN7000. Migrating from the U90 to the KN6000 was a major decision, as I had previously owned a Yamaha V50 and found it very limiting (mainly because my playing skills are limited). But when I looked at the high cost of replacing the U90 with another organ, my wife suggested I try a keyboard. Buying the KN6000 was a good choice, and I am now enjoying music making much more.

My 1st Technics keyboard was a KN3000 which I traded in on second hand KN6000. More recently I purchased a new KN7000 (so my 6000 is also for sale).

I think it is interesting to see the number of people who have taken every 'step up' with technics along the way ... I am envious of your budget...
My first was the kn1000 ... while looking to purchase my first kb (I was playing a Rhodes and using a Roland drum machine at the time), a fellow was showing me a number of kbs, and said that he found the technics to be about the most used friendly ... and so did I ..... he 'happened' to have a used one, in the original box, that a customer had traded on an upgrade .... it was in great shape and with what I saved off the original price I purchased the FD drive ... I used the kn1 until I upgraded to my present kn6000 which I purchased sight unseen, and sound unheard, primarily from the comments of owners on the OLD technics forum ... been happy with it since...
