Wk6 has identical sounds and styles as Wk8, Sk880 and Sk760. So look for comments about Wk8 and sk880.

In my estimation, if you are looking for new keyboard, you have two options:

1) you want the best keyboard with the best options. Then wait for Genesys.

2) Otherwise, look for the best price for all other keyboards including wk6.

First, I think you can get WK6 for very good price these days because they are going to be obsolete very soon after the official introduction of Genesys.

Second, why did you return PSR2000? What did you find lacking in PSR2000?

Third, in my opinion, wk6 is very well-built keyboard in my opinion. it is also the best composition arranger workstation keyboard. But you must first like the sounds and styles.

I suggest the following:

1) listen to this keyboard with your own ears. I guess I will give this advice to every single person trying any keyboard. The irony is that I bought sk880ps without listening to it. I just liked the specification so much. and it worked for me.

2) Contact George Kay for good pricing on this keyboard. Also contact Uncle Dave because he seems to get excellent excellent deals on keyboards. SK760 is similar to WK6 except it is 76 keys and without speakers. I think you can get it for about $1200.

I returned my PSR2000 beacuse it would not save any of my settings and the buttons and keys did not all feel the same way, some of the buttons had a good "tactile" feel and others were "ok" but not like they should be. Also some led`s remained on when I would turn off a setting >ie: song track 1 or 2 would just flicker , same with regestration memory. And there was also a "hiss" comming from the speakers , even at min. volume

you reminded me of something,

Another difference between Sk760 and Wk6 is that sk760 has semi-weighted keys... if my memory serves me correctly.

I can tell you that when it comes to:

1) sequencer
2) performance
3) programability

No keyboard can beat wk/sk series and I am talking from hard experience verified by other people experiences as well.

However, YOU MUST..... and I mean YOU MUST listen to it and LIKE the sounds and styles.

I personally, do not like the speakers on WK8/6... So I think Sk760 for $1200 is an excellent deal!!!!

GEM had the opposite reaction to their speakers, and look, they invested everything they got into Genesys speakers. According to George kay, they are the speakers.
