Hi Flyer,

This week I went to listen to a system one of our keyboard members had recently purchased from BCK. It is called the EDIFIER R401 and retails at 69.99 The keyboard was being played in a Senior Citizens communal hall and I was pleasantly surprised at how much this small system enhanced his KN7000. My friend had it playing through his 'earphone' socket, but it also offers direct connection to the Keyboard.

The details are 6.5inch subwoofer - aluminium coil. MDF (wood) cabinets (not plastic). Internal power supply - no wall wart. Quality finish - consistant and safe.

2 x satellite cabinets with 1 x 3 inch - paper coil and 1 x 1 inch membrance dome.

Volume, treble and bass controls.

Cables included for connection to most keyboards/computers. Ideal for keyboard or computer use.

Of course, it is no competition for the systems used by the professionals, but for people like me who only entertain for parties
and occasional small dances, it would be perfectly adequate. Certainly it is well worth checking.

BCK's web address is www.bck.co.uk
or you can Telephone: 01992 524442 or
Fax: 01992 524004

Tony,

The z2200 will need two adapters, RCA to Phono, a penny or two. They are amplified.

Electronics advance so quickly today. I would look at and if possible listen two what is available unless you have unlimited dollars.

Hi Fran

Thanks for that - don't have unlimited dollars/pounds - I wish ! Think i've got those adaptors hanging around the house . Now where to get them cheapest - Ebay ...

( They are 108.01 at Amazon here in UK which is about $200)

Even better Pixmania 76 plus P+P

Hi Roger,

Can you tell me how high the amplification is in the self powered speakers? The reason I'm asking is that I understand that if you connect lower power amps than those built in the KN, it could cause damage particularly if there is a need to increase the volume i.e: noisy venue. Or have I got this wrong?

Look forward to hearing what you or anyone else has to say on this subject.

Don't worry Audrey, it doesn't make a bit of difference what power output the external amp/speaker system has -it will not damage your KN7000
Unless of course, you have 20 Kilowatts per channel at full blast and it shakes your keyboard to bits

Logitech Z2200 Spec.
Nominal Output Power (Total): 200 Watt
Max (RMS) Output Power (Total): 400 Watt

Hi Audrey
To put it in simple terms,when the signal leaves the main outs of the kn7000, the keyboard doesn't care where it goes. The Z2200 handles and improves it very well.

Bill was spot on with his message, I can only add that I am very happy with the Logitech Z2200 and love the remote volume,no more having to go around the keyboard to set the volume and sound. Have made a 5 foot strap to go under the kn7000 with two holes each side for the small speakers, the subwoofer on the floor in the frount.

I heard from a new member (Marjorie) who is purchasing directly from Logitech - $150 with a $50 mail in coupon. End cost $100.

Let us know how you like them Marjorie.
