Vitalize
« on: July 31, 2017, 06:15:54 AM »
Hi --

It's a looooooong time until September, so here's a new topic for discussion: vitalization.

I was taking a stroll through Electone organs and came across the Yamaha "STAGEA Vitalize Unit ELSU-V02". The Vitalize Unit upgrades a STAGEA ELS-01 series organ to an ELS-02 series organ. "Replacement involves the main unit, LCD panel, STAGEA emblem and ELS-02 series sticker."

There's a bit of money to be made on installation, too. "Only certified technicians authorised by Yamaha may install the Vitalize Unit."

Prices are 313,000 JPY for X models and 294,000 JPY for standard and C models. That's $2,830 USD and $2,650 USD, respectively. (I'm sure you'll work out the maths for your local currency. :-))

So, how 'bout a "vitalize" for Tyros? Cost of full replacement (the current situation) vs. upgrade?

The weather is beautiful here today -- I'm going for a walk. :-)

All the best -- pj

As far as I know the Japanese people never bought any of the Tyros dynasty.
Apparently the Tyros was made for export only.

Maybe the Tyros Vitalize Unit could be a new product for their own Market.😉

Hi Jeff --

I was thinking about a "vitalizer" that upgrades a Tyros 5 to a GENOS. That would be a nice surprise for T5 owners as long as the price of the vitalizer is reasonable.

It would be great to get a full upgrade without canning everything in the rubbish bin (so to speak). I guess that an Electone organ platform is big and expense enough to get such an upgrade.

Hey, hey, take care -- pj
