Give it time - some people own a BK-5 and will probably respond.
However, I myself cant see the point if you have almost any recent Yamaha arranger - say from 3k on. What are you gaining? Might be a little useful to someone who wants to play a weighted 78 or 88 key controller and not carry two keyboards. But other than that ......??

I have the BK7m (module).  The BK5 that was shown at NAMM is supposed to be the same thing with keys.  My preliminary investigation shows that it make lack some of the features of the BK7m though, such as fewer styles.  I expect Roland will have a couple more to show maybe at Musicmesse or Summer NAMM.  Just guessing.
I must say the BK7m sounds really great though!

Is it a BK7m with keys? Or is it something like a new Prelude? Could it replace an E80?

I got confused and my comments were related to the BK-7. I had not realised that Roland had intioduced a new keyboard

Hi folks ,

From Roland / Hamburg Iíve just received the confirmation that the BK-5 is
more or less a BK-7m integrated in an arranger / workstation .
nicely compact and just 7.5 kg .

Regards
Udo

PS
I received a detailed answer from Roland after 3 hours .  Cheesy
For an answer from Yamaha / Hamburg I was waiting more than 4 weeks .  Embarrassed
