At last the announcement has been made in Japan and it's official - no more Technics.
A sad day.

Then it's true what they say, no smoke unless any fire.....
Well, the rumours have been going for some time now, but it's
really really sad.
Wonder what brand is the next to close down, I was looking
to add a SD1, so maybe some news at Frankfurth?
Are you going this year Alec?

HiEveryone,
Although I have not posted on this Forum since going over to Yamaha some while Ago, I have still been a regular visitor taking great interest in all the varied topics that have been posted regarding the Kn7000.Having just decided to purchase the 7000 it is in deed very sad news that after all these years we are going to lose one of the best keyboard producers ever.SAD.Best wishes to all
Gilbert.

Very Very sad - the entire Electronic Musical Instrument Department has closed.
I feel really sorry for the Technics staff, two of whom were personal friends.

Who was it?? that said
It was only a rumour and take it with a grain of salt
a sad end to an era and your last chance for a KN2600 but I doubt if you will be finding any KN7000

Tis indeed a sad day. Still I suppose it will save me from the regular "discussions" with my wife about making a change.....

I can only assume that Technics was having financial problems, and I wonder how many other manufacturers are in the same boat?

At least the Technicskn7000 site is still open but for how long?

Well, nothing as bad that it's not good for anything.....
Just keep up as usual, soon the KN's will be a rare
collector serie, and with a "Golden Club" here at SZ.
Nigel, start print the diplomas

A thought has just occurred to me that there are still the Panasonic keyboards.

so a rumour and a hunch!!
the Technics closure could mean that they are going to diversify and market under the Panasonic banner and so maybe re-appear with the next high end on the Panasonic logo ???????????

Not according to my 'sources' Johnnie - the entire musical instrument division of Panasonic / Technics / Matsushita has closed.
