Well, this is of course marketing strategy, but also a question
of our needs and whishes regarding this great inventions.
I've, as many of you, bought most of the new KN keyboard models
from Technics, started with the K350, then KN800, KN1000, KN2000
some years ago.
I even ordered the new goodies before they was in the store, but
after I got the KN3000, I did not buy the KN5000 before after the
KN6000's was in the shop.
People who know me thought I was seriously ill since I did not go
for the latest as I usually did, but I found that the "old" one
still could do the things I want it to do, at least compared to my
skills regarding the use of it, and guess what, it still do
The compability I think will never go back in models, and as we've
seen, it hardly goes the other way either without using converting
tools etc., but that's probably also a result of the new developed
technical solutions, you have to leave the old technology when you
find a new and better one to replace it.
The fact that we don't see any new aditions of styles and software
who fit the old models is too bad. Most all those instruments are
still in use by people who bought it, and a lot ovn second hand or
later bought models too.
I know many looking for more and new such stuff to play along with,
and I think Technote and others should not forget that market as
soon as a new model show up.
There will always be new technical solutions and ways to make this
playable wondermachines even more tempting for us to buy, and I'm
pretty sure that I am one of the Technicsusers who will "jump on the
train" again very soon, and when I do so, hopefully the backward
compability will make it possible to try out all the new stuff we can
see at the KN7000 site now
