By George Alec, I sure like your style!!! Ruthie was looking over my shoulder and messen with my hair as she was reading this thread with me and out of her cute little mouth drifted the very words I was thinking when I was reading your response. You know hun, thats one of the reasons I married you. You know what you think and you say what you know. Maybe thats why me and her been kinda close these many years.

Well, I was waiting for the KN8000 to see what
news to come, but maybe it will be too long to wait?
We'll see......

Btw.
The big difference in the rumors now, are
that noone deny any of it, at least so far.
Also it looks like it's not only the "high
end" serie, but rather all instrument line
if it is not the little fly who's grown to
an elephant.
Time will tell what happens, and there is
probably nothing we can do about it anyway.
As always, life will go on, "one mans dead,
is another mans bread" they say.....

PS.
Had to edit a bit, because it looks like some
of the posts in this tread are gone, also the
post some of my reply was about.
What's happened, I don't know.......

Hang on to your KN 7000. It might just become a collectors item as well as a fine keyboard!!

What is different about the kn7000 is the expansion boards and SD cards. The amount of data and information that can be put in to the keyboard makes the possibilities endless.

What a sad state of affairs. Michie's just shown me your original message. Only three months ago we ditched our Panasonic keyboard and purchased (second-hand) a KN6000 from an old friend. We like it a lot and thought we would get, say, about 2 to 3 years use and then look for a second-hand KN7000. However, if what you've heard is true it must also mean that they'll be little if no technical support availible from Technics/Panasonic. Whoever reads this, take a piece of advice. If you do anything, at least subscribe to a user group such as this forum or to Techplus where, at least, you know you can get some form of assistance. I have only got one question. Why, when keyboard sales seem to be on the increase is such a marketing ploy being used? Are we being duped?

This is a rumor and has never been verified by anyone. Take it with a grain of salt

I think you are quite wrong because it's been posted here that many dealers are saying this and they should be in a far better position to know?? So I would not take it as a grain of salt & certainly treat it as more than just a rumour

But you will get yourself a great keyboard,
the KN7000 will still do as it does today,
even if there are no further models in the
KN serie

To GJ,

Hi,

We appreciate your comments. It's going to probably take us that long just to use every facility that the keyboard offers. We're still finding new things each day. However, and this is my thoughts, not Michie's, why when there is such an interest now in home(?)keyboards, thanks mostly to the interenet (i.e. MIDI files, sequences, etc. to download), would Technics decide to ditch the KN series. I think we all understand that they are not cheap to manufacture but there are plenty of people still willing to pay for what is possible the Mercedes-Benz / Jaguar of keyboards. By the way I still class Roland as Rolls-Royce. Surely Technics could carry on production just based on after-sales service. I wonder, has anybody got a figure for the number of KN users world-wide...

Thanks for your comments; well received...

Mark
