I emailed these guys for a px price but heard nothing back,I guess this is why.

The prices seem strait forward enough

The prices are for what (£)  you need to find for Genos with speakers,minus stand and with stand
They quote px prices for tyros (inc tyros speakers)

Hi
It looks like the quote in the red box section of £2225 is for 76 key  Tyros only
It does not say speakers unless they assume It includes the speakers.
I do not understand that if you collect the genos ,you do not get their extra package thrown In .
if you have It delivered for £100 you get the package.
So people who pay for delivery are really paying for the package.  confusing ::)
I am not so worried about that,because nothing is free nowadays.
I will have to get things in writing ,so their is no confusion.

Hi John

I assumed all options are with package and speakers,it does seem to indicate this in the advert.

I agree,the £100 reduction for self collection seems a lot less than courier delivery,which they say is free,yes ,a bit confusing ?? 😯😯

Probably best to give them a call

Hi Alans

I think your right there as a person exchanged a Tyros 5 76 for Genos for £2050 .
So  £2225 Is what it seems to be.
I have something to barter with now as Bonners have offered me £2,400 for my Tyros and speakers and deducting that from the Tyros tiptsers verbal quote Is £100 less.
Bonners Is quite a way from me.
But I want that 5 year guarantee as some places only offer 2 years like Bonners
so i also think that the tipsters £100 delivery which includes package and 5 year guarantee may be worth it if by collecting your Genos ,you may only get the 2 year guarantee.
Is this to do with clever salesmanship???
The Tipsters have a good reputation by what I hear. I might get a free cup of coffee!! :P

all the best
John

I bought from them yesterday and was very satisfied with the deal they gave me part exchanging my Tyros 4. I chose option 2 for delivery after speaking to Chris and I am receiving a Genos, speakers and stand plus their own goody bag of bits n pieces.

Just looked this morning and I see they've changed the page and made it all much clearer...

Hi John

Let us know how you get on with your deal,I could be interested ,I like the sound of the 5 year guarantee also.
I will probably give Richtone Music in Sheffield a call as I bought my Tyros 5 from John Millington,who now works for them,when he had his own shop in Sheffield.Can recommend John,a good egg 😁😁

I ordered mine from Tyros Tipsters. Seems a good deal, with plenty of backup.
I hope I don't have to wear the baseball cap to play the Genos, I didn't check if it works without.
Also I get a new stool. The one I use now came with an HS6 organ in the late 80's.

What i was wondering, did anyone have an offer for exchanging a pa4x 76 keys?

I imagine any Yamaha/Korg dealership would offer a part ex on your pa4x. I'm not sure you'll find one quoted on line as they're clearly targeting Tyros owners, but it surely only needs a phone call or two :)

What I was trying to say earlier

Was that with or without speaker system price.

I am assuming that price is also with the speakers looking at other deals around
They should include that In their red box

It is including speakers and L7-B stand. In other words it's the full package. If you don't want the stand, phone them and I expect they'll put the price down a little.

Can anyone answer the question that concerns me.

Option 1: If I collect the Genos from the Tyros Tipsters shop, and return my Tyros 5 and speakers system to part exchange for the Genos, it  will cost me £2225. 
But, if I do this I do not receive the Tipsters extra free package.  I am not particularly bothered about this, but

Option 2:  If I have the Genos delivered to my home address (free) I get the Tipsters extra package. But this costs £100, ie total cost £2325.   But this means my Tyros 5 has to be collected by courier and this must add extra cost to the Tipsters' overheads.  But what happens if my Tyros 5/Speakers were damaged in transit on way back to Banbury?  Whereas if I deliver my Tyros 5 I will ensure it arrives in its immaculate state.

Option 3:  I do not require this as I am confident to set up/instal my Genos.

In other words, as I prefer Option 1, it will cost me £50 petrol and I am doing a courier's job, BUT I still won't receive free package, and possibly only be offered a 2-year warranty.  Whereas it states on home delivery a 5-year warranty. Are you really paying £100 for the free package.

Obviously, I am more concerned that I receive the 5-year warranty.

I have put a deposit down with Tyros Tipsters but not received a written quote, despite a discussion regarding the deal.

Am I missing something?   ::)

Hi John,

Where does it say this? I can't see where it says the extra free package is dependant on the option you specify?

If your keyboard is damaged in transit that's the couriers responsibility, not yours. If you want proof take timestamped photos (almost any digital/mobile camera now) before it's shipped.

Why don't you just phone Chris and ask him all your questions?

If I was to buy from them I would not be bothered about the pack,speakers or stand,I think they should just state plane simple prices without all the add ons then we know where we stand 😁😁

Thank you for informing me.  Something has changed In their wording from when I last looked at Tipsters' website.

At that point I am sure I read that  for anyone who collects the Genos from their shop would not receive the inclusive package.
That has now been amended. 

David B forwarded the amendment above showing the Tipsters modified page.

Well over on Holland i got 2 offers... first €1700 euro off from the selling price of €4700
Second €1970 euro off the price of €4570

So one makes me pay €3000 the other “only” €2600
My pa4x is only 10 months old, and looks brand new.
If after playing and understanding the Genos I decide I need it then a private sale is the only way to go and cut out the Middleman, this just means I may potentially have a wait rather than instant gratification with a bigger loss ... so I am still looking fwd to playing Genos it could be when considering both Pa4x compared to Genos from a personal perspective and from a technical point of view that Genos being less in some ways on paper could actually mean more for me according to how I personally use and interact with Genos and it could be that some of the advantages of pa4x over Genos I may not miss.... So....only time with the manual and spending time with the Genos at a dealers will permit a conclusion....and not forgetting following this forum.

Hi Alans

It was the option 1 and It is £2225,That is If you part ex your Tyros 5 and speakers
I put £ 500 deposit,so i have £1775 left to pay.

I did find the options confusing with the discounts ,but you have to take the discount off the top price  of option 3 and work down to option 1.
When you look at the red box for the prices It looks confusing when option 2 say's free delivery and £100 more than option 1.
Work backwards from top price and It becomes clear.

I do believe that the package that goes with it is what everyone gets.
I thought I read that if you choose option 1 and collect yourself ,you lose on the freebies being offered ,which also confused me .That is not there anymore I print.
I am now waiting for my email reply to pay the balance left.
It seems now from today's amendment that everyone gets the whole package regardless of the options .
Well I hope that Is the case.

All the best

Hi alans
I went for Genos and Speakers as from reports they have been uprated.
I do have a pair of Tapco studio monitors for mixing.But they are getting old
I will try them on the Genos and maybe go for some HS8 monitors at a later stage.
I need to go and listen to some of these new monitors.
I decided to go with the Genos speakers for general listening, In my 10ft by 10 ft man cave.
You may have to give the tipsters another ring to see what is going on as I heard back pretty quickly and they confirmed my deposit.

All the best

I bought my Tyros 5 about 2 years ago, second hand for mere 2200 euros.
1024 RAM installed
Wi Fi dongle included
Mint condition
1,5 year of surplus warranty
Original packaging

I saw it on a listing in a local website for second hand sales, and I honestly thought it was some kind of scam. I call the provided phone, I paid him a visit on the next day to check of everything was legit and had the money in cash with me in case this guy was for real...and it was.
I've had my pal waiting outside this guy's house in a car with the engine running, with his index finger ready on the trunk release button. I've instructed him if he sees me carrying big carton box towards the car, to open the trunk immediately, and be ready to leave this place as soon as me and the keyboard are in the car before the seller had a second thought.

The guy had it wrapped in it's original packaging on my arrival, I had to take it out my self of the box to test it. The thing was spotless, still smelled, felt and looked like brand new. After a thorough check, I just reached in my pocket gave the money to the guy, packed it back in the box, put the keyboard in the car, and the the next thing that happen was a re-enhancement of 'Fast and Furious'.

To be fair, judging on the house/chalet he lived in, that guy clearly wasn't living poorly at all. But still it's a mystery to me how come and why he agreed to sell it on such a low price, considering he bought it only 5 month ago, while the Tyros 5 was still 4000+ euros in the shops, and running way above 3000 euros on the second hand market.
I'm working with it for nearly 2 years now almost every single day, and it's working absolutely perfectly.

I guess I got the best bargain in the history of whole bargains for the entire 2015. Lets see if I can beat that in 2018 with a Genos, haha.

Cheers!

I bought my Tyros 5 76 brand new in Dec '15 from a dealer in the UK. Came with a1024gb board and choice of 2 expansion packs. I also got the mini Hi-Fi that Yamaha were offering at the time. Oh and I paid £2025 for it, so maybe that qualifies as bargain of the century ::)

Hi Oxford 1035,

Are you selling your T5 ?

If so, plse email me your lowest selling price to my private e-mail address : jdavis591@hotmail.com.

Do not worry about transport to The Netherlands.
I will handle transport myself if your offer sounds attractive to me.
I have many good friends in the UK who will take care of the shipping. 

BTW also other T5 ( 76 or 61 keys ) sellers ( from the UK and/or Europe ) can send me their offers if they like .

I feel very sorry I cannot buy in the USA.
We have to pay high transport -, import costs and probably VAT to bring in overseas goods. :-[ 

Looking forward to receiving very attractive proposals.

Thanks and best regards, Jeff
