Yamaha knows they have a winner on their hands. Sales have been brisk in Europe from what I've observed anyway. There's only a few that's been delivered to the USA as of today. I expect we'll see some more in the stores at least by Christmas. I actually know of a place where I could buy one today and receive it by Monday or Tuesday if I really wanted one. But because of its shortcomings i.e. lack of USB 3.0, unacceptable Vocal Harmony, polyphony not allocated across the entire range of the keyboard, etc., etc., I have to pass unfortunately. I'm beginning to think Yamaha does it just to spite me. LOL
If the PSR s970 replacement has a better keybed I might consider one of those but I'll probably just wait until Genos 2 and hope for the best. I have to say though that the Genos is Yamaha's best arranger keyboard ever. In fact I wouldn't mind paying a little more for the Genos 2 if Yamaha rectifies the situation regarding the polyphony and other anomalies.
All the best,
