Tony, Mike, Thank you for those good words. This is a deep keyboard with a 215 page Manual that has it all so it is a slow but steep learning curve.
Gunner, I think I am a "Yammie Hopper" now as I keep hoping from the KN6 back to it to learn another new thing
It is fun but frustrating
Marilyn I wondered if the VA3 would cut it for you. The guys at the store told me the VA7was a good seller and I might want to look at it but I had already decided on the 9000. I brought my top end headphones and played it in the store for 4 hours and then did a concert for all their customers.
Larry, thanks but wait and check out the 7000 before you decide. I may still get the 7000 also if Technics ever decides to give us our moneys worth once again and quit riding on their laurels.
Ted, I kept the kn6000 so I will continue to be here, The Good Lord and Nigel willing, to continue to serve all the great folks on this forum.
Best to all
