That makes sense! Thanks. Maybe Bachus thinks the Psr-S970 is the Genos little brother, because of it's new, advanced chip it shares with the Genos and the Montage.

Yes, but they always had many of the sounds and styles of their bigger brothers.

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,

Mike
