Anybody still buying Tyros5?
« on: April 14, 2017, 02:48:13 PM »
I'm just curious.  With an announcement possibly later this year or early 2018, for a Tyros 5 replacement, are folks still buying the Tyros5?

Yes as there are some good offers on it at the moment and it is still a very good keyboard.

IMHO if a new model of "anything" is coming on the market the older model doesn't actually get any worse at that moment. It's still the same good product like Tyros 5 in this case. The new product can perhaps be "better" but still the older doesn't change in any aspect.

I've only had my Tyros 5 for a couple of months but also have an option to trade up to the new Genos (or whatever they call it) should I wish to go in that direction, if the new flagship is going to be a big change from the Tyros series I may hold off changing till things settle down, all the bugs are ironed out and I've made sure it's what I really want after I've read all the reviews and reports.

I came from Tyros 2 to PSR S 970 and I think, I have most of them, what I need.
One thing, I miss, are better drums and more Audio styles. Few factory styles and what Yamaha offers, to add more, are 5 styles, that I don't really need.

Yes I ordered my Tyros 5 on my birthday, 07/29/2017. A great birthday present to me. I currently have a PSR-S950  that I might sell when I get the Tyros 5.

Congratulations on buying a fantastic keyboard.
I'm sure you'll enjoy it no matter what emerges in the future.

I personally would not buy a product, when the successor is in sight. There are two possibilities:

* When the successor product gets new features and technologies, which are interesting for me, I will buy the successor.
* Otherwise, I can buy the older product for a lower price after the availability of the successor.

Often it is wise to buy not the newest, most expensive stuff, but an earlier model or the midrange model, because you get more for your money. That's why I am happy with the S970 instead of the Tyros 5. But I want to have full information about what is coming to avoid suprises. Buying shortly before the announcement of a new product is not a wise strategy.

Just my personal opinion.

A very wise opinion, Uli. I fully agree. :)

On the other hand, if I were a rich man, I would buy me the T5 successor, I guess. 8)

Hi voodoo,

I agree with your post and you have highlighted the sensible options.

However, ed mc has already gone ahead and ordered a T5 so I wish him many hours of enjoyment and music making on his new keyboard.

I bought my T5 almost 2 years ago at a good price and wonder if I should sell now to get a reasonable price or just hold on and see what the new keyboard brings. I think at this stage it has to be the latter option.

Hi Trevor,

Wished I could afford a Tyros5 ... would be very happy too. :P
The T5 is a very nice instrument. I love it.

But I am very pleased with my S770. No reason to complain. ;)

Checked on UK prices on Tyros 5 yesterday, the best offer was brand new 2,600 with speakers, 500.00 worth of extras free,
5 year warranty 18 months free credit. This shows that the new keyboard is coming out, dealers are trying to offload the Tyros 5 now.
I was tempted, I will wait for the new flagship to come out in September, if I do not think its value for money I will contact the dealer
and offer 2,000.

Hi Jeff,

I have played the prs s770 and it is a great keyboard and probably the best value for money in the psr range. I like the fact that it has built in speakers and is so easy to set up.

Totally conform. The S770 is really perfect for the money. The difference to the S970 is not so big (when you don't sing), and the S970 has nearly the double price. The S770 is a huge development from the S750 which still had black/white display.

Hi Uli,

The S770 has a mic input, no VHarmonizer but Reverb and Chorus can be selected. :)
I have connected the Boss Vocal Performer VE-5 et voila : a great Harmonizer has been added too.  ;)

I sold my Tyros 5-76 and bought a Pa4X. This to me was a big mistake.  I tried to get used to the Korg and had lots of help in learning the OS but in the end
I still preferred the T-5. I missed the T-5-76 more and more so finally bought another T-5-76 and I love it all over.  Everyone hears differently and the Korg
is very good as many owners will attest to.

Tyros 5 is now impossible to purchase new as Yamaha is NOT manufacturing them anymore.  The new Genos is just around the corner but who knows what
new features will lure Tyros owners to buy one.  For the home player the Genos may just be too far advanced so until we hear demos and see the Genos
it's a big question.  Lloyd

This is very interesting. I did not like the PA900 and decided for the S970 instead. But others seem to like the PA4X.

If one were to buy a Tyros 5, (which is still a great keyboard).. I would wait until Yamaha's new model comes out..  The T5 will drop more in price..

i honestly dont think the tyros 5 price will drop as much as people think
and if the tyros 5 is 3000 then the new tyros  6 well might be 4000 or even 5000
so there is that to consider when deciding to upgrade

I think you might be right about the T5 price.

It is hard to believe the new high end arranger will be so expensive though.
Your price indication is much too high, I guess.

The Tyros 5 has so much to offer.  The keybed is smooth and much better than lesser models. Sounds and Styles are to me more suited than Korg.  Organ World is a great addition to Tyros 5. Expansion voices are expensive but they are good. Cost is higher than it should be.  I think you made a good choice and don't worry about the newest Yamaha keyboard as it might have things
on it that you will not like compared to Tyros 5. Congratulations !   Lloyd

hi many thanks Lloyd E
i think all the keyboards yamaha produce from the tyros 1 through to 5 and all the psr range are just quality instruments
and worth every penny
I'm not worried about yamaha bringing out a new keyboard that's progress
but you can be assured it will be another quality keyboard from yamaha  ;D

i dont know about a new tyros 5
but david and chris over at tyros tipsters are doing a fantastic upgrade to a new tyros 5 deal on all tyros models
with plenty of extras thrown in for good measure
if you want to upgrade your tyros then epianos are the best shop  to buy from with an  oustanding customer service.
