When it comes to arranger upgrading, who has the luxury to see, hear, or try out the product before purchase?  Do most rely on forums, witness testimony, written reviews, and youtube videos?  I’ve never demo’d any of my arrangers before receiving shipment.  Right, or wrong, I assume that any upgrade will be, in fact, an improvement and will sound better than the previous model. So far, no disappointments, especially with Yamaha.  Can’t say that for other brands.

Based on the experiences in the past you are absolutely right. I don't think it will be any different now. That also applies to other products: cars, smartphones, computers etc. etc. So the SX900 will without exception be 'better' than its last predecessor. It depends on what the customer wants to spend his money on at that time.With the former Technics range, I thought the KN3000 was the ultimate, would be my last (promised my wife, what I liar I was ;-)), the KN SX 5000, the KN SX6000 and the KN SX7000 always surpassed him and tempted me to upgrade each time again. Nice detail: yamaha SX ... technics SX. Some Technics technicians went to Yamaha. Then it should not be so difficult to make a tilting screen like Technics SX ;-))

When the S950 keyboard was introduced in the fall of 2012 with the New Vocal Harmonizer, along with the new sampled S.A. Guitars, I was going to upgrade to it the following year when I retired. But as LUCK would have it, my PSR2000 gave up the ghost 2 weeks before Christmas. :)

My S950 came the week after Christmas. 8)

I love the sounds I get out of my S950, no complaints there. What I need is some built in feature to allow better STYLE creating. BETTER as in easier to record and move exiting patterns around among the styles.

The only thing currently on the newer keyboards I wish I had would be the NEW "Pedal Steel Guitar".  I really haven't heard anyone on the forum able to show case it , so maybe it ain't really all that great after all.   ;)

Sure, send me a Genos or a new sx900 and I'll check it out.  :)
Actually I did play the Genos for a day and one of things I did like a lot was that sound. 
I already had touch screen (adjustable), joy stick (plus touch strip), great vocal harmonizer and great sounds, plus numerous live operating controls, including Songbook, and Chord Sequencer (Looper per Yamaha), so wasn't much interested in the Genos.  I thought about sampling the Pedal Steel and using it in my Korg though.

"Well, it's just my opinion, but it's backed by the best rumor and speculation the internet can provide." as I posted that cartoon in another post.

Unfortunately, the well-known source has deleted his message. Then it stops. It was nice to just daydream ... and move on to the order of the day ...

Happy keyboarding with your (and I with my) current great keyboard.

I am totally convinced that all this speculation was not fake. I also believe it will be avaible before the end of this year. Those detailed photos are not fake at all. It is the REAL new baby Yamaha.

Remember, the suppliers have to get rid of their existing stock. Who in their right mind will go and purchace a PSR S775/975 knowing a new model would be released soon?

We all know Yamaha likes to use teaser advertising as they’ve shown in the past. Maybe George was allowed a teaser post for a limited period of time. Makes sense to me...and would certainly get the attention of the competitors.

The impression I've gotten from similar leaks which were quelled by Yamaha is that they weren't at all happy about the leaks, and worked relatively quickly to make the leakers sign NDAs and stop giving out information ahead of time. I really think these leaks are coming from Yamaha employees, or workers at factories which are contracted by Yamaha (or however that works), and that Yamaha does not approve or endorse the leaks. Yamaha occasionally engages in teaser ads, but these are always posted on one of their official websites-- such as YamahaSynths.com-- and they mention the date when the full announcement or "unveiling" will occur. These unapproved leaks may stir up interest, but they can also lead to a lot of misinformation and erroneous speculation about features, so they can potentially do more harm than good.

I wonder what will be the difference between SX900, SX700 & SX300. Since Yamaha hasn't posted the official spect yet, all we have to do is wait for the official release.
I'm not a fan of speculation cause the actual product may differ from what is speculated, thus will be disappointing if it not implemented in the retail release.

The leak has certainly kept people busy on this forum! Thank you Yamaha.
There will always be improvements/additional features between the latest and previous model. But this technology is now so mature that they will be incremental rather than groundbreaking. Maybe so incremental that people argue about whether they are inprovements or not. This has been true for at least 15 years.
If you are already in the market for a new keyboard, then it makes sense to get the latest. If you just enjoy new things or having the latest model and can afford it, then of course go ahead get it. If you spot some new facility or feature you really want, then of course consider buying it.
But if you think any of this is going to make it easier to play, or make you a better player, then you are kidding yourself, just like I do every time I buy a new set of golf clubs, ;)

Hi,

IMHO this is a false leak and a true, clever advertising campaign. If you remember, it just started this way with the Genos: a “leaked” first trailer which just teased you enough to make you want to see (and hear) more.

Anyway, today at midnight, it’ll be August 1st, so...

By the way... midnight in which country???

It is again surprising how quickly news is cited by various sources around the world. If, for instance, you follow this post, than one sometimes get anxious about how easily "truths" on wrong facts and / or sources are considered true, v.v. Like with so many subjects, and specially the much more important ones !!. So .. stay alert ..

FYI, on SynthZone, GK has not explained why he deleted his spec info on the SX-900, He did not delete the actual post,  thus keeping the topic alive. Could he be an official Yamaha  " leaker/ teaser" ? Not a bad thing, because it means it must be true,

I quote a post on SynthZone:
"Here's some information on comparing the new PSRSX900 and the PSRS975:

Comparison of PSR-SX700 and PSRS775

PSR-SX700
1337 Voices, 56 Drum/SFX kits, 480 XG (vs. 986 Voices, 41 Drum/SFX kits, 480 XG)
8 insert effect slots (vs. 5)
Chord Looper function
Bluetooth audio
1GB expansion Voice memory (vs. 400MB)
4GB internal memory (vs. 1GB)
329 Multi Pad banks (vs. 226)
Main L&R line outputs, plus Sub L&R line outputs (vs. Main L&R only)
Expansive Sound Field speakers
(15W + 10W) x 2 amplifiers (vs. 15W x 2 only)
USB to device x 2 (vs. x 1)

Corrections according to Yamaha specs:

* 986 voices, not 1337
* 5 insert effects, not 8
* No chord looper
* No bluetooth
* 400 MB expansion memory, not 1 GB
* 226 Multi Pad banks, not 329
* no Sub L&R outputs, only Main
* 15W x2, not 15W+10W x2
* 1 USB to device, not 2

So the head line of the paragraph should have been Comparison SX900 and SX700, then it would have been right.

Thus, the SX700 is strongly reduced as compared to SX900.

Hi Drake,

Seems your dream is being fulfilled:

As a country specialist, what do you think about the PSR SX900 pedal steel guitar as it is being showcased in this video?

The joystick seems particularly handy in this situation.

So that means that sx900 was ready from 2008 and they just announced it right now?

It’s great that we now have new models and I sure hope they will serve their future owners well. However, as far as I’m concerned, the new keyboards do not feature a sample of (or even better, a variety of) yodelling voices. Lately, I’ve been much into the folklore music of Tirol (the so called volkstümmliche Musik) and been writing an album. There is a lack of variety of styles for this genre, especially 6/8, and the only yoddeling voice available from the expansion packs, while passable, sounds average at best. Paid €120 for it, however!

While I guess new expansion packs might be available in the future, I will hold my horses and see how the things will develop. In the mean time, my psr s770 still rocks.

I can only say kudos to Yamaha - new PSRs, new CVPs, new CLPs are expected in 2020. Will have to plan a visit to next year’s Frankfurter Musikmesse.
