SX Speculation
« on: July 30, 2019, 05:47:39 AM »
So the SX900 and SX700 are on the way. What about SX600 or maybe SX300? Will there even be a third SX model? What about price range from 900 all the way to SX300? Features for entry level SX model? I dare you to speculate in this thread for pure fun. Let see what we get right and was completely off after official Yamaha presentation.  ;) :)

For me it would be nice if Yamaha introduced a complete replacement for current PSR-E and S models. SX300 as E-363. Probably a fishful thinking but as a beginner I would buy that one for sure!  :P

Everybody is waiting for the official Yamaha announcement of the XS-serie.

Apparently XS700 and XS900 have been shipped from Asia for delivery in October 2019.
BTW ... not officially confirmed by Yamaha yet.☝

Wait and see.😏

I'm thinking something like this may very well be in the works, as well.  I don't know if they'll use the "SX" prefix up and down the line, but I think there are some changes coming to the E-series.  For one thing, this year, we were all expecting the replacements for the PSR-E263 and E363, which would've naturally been the PSR-E273 and E373, but that did not happen -- at least, not yet -- and it's late July.  Then they came out with that weird PSR-E360 variant, which is essentially a current PSR-E263 with a touch sensitive keyboard added that is available in different colors.

Yamaha used to use a designation of simply "PSR-xxx" up and down the line, as there were entry level keyboards like the PSR-100 or PSR-200, to more advanced models like the PSR-500 and PSR-600, and then the dedicated pro models like the PSR-1000 and PSR-2000.  They may just do the same thing again, and have everything from a PSR-SX200 to a PSR-SX900, but because the "S" is still in there, I'm thinking that the "SX" designation will still just be for the 600-and-up series.

For the E-series, I predict one of two scenarios.  Either Yamaha will introduce a PSR-EX series, as in PSR-EX300 and PSR-EX400.  Or, maybe the PSR-E360 really is the new model of the PSR-E263, instead of it being called the PSR-E273, and maybe they'll do the same with the E363 and E463 and add 97 to the model number for the next version to come up with PSR-E460 and PSR-E560 for the next versions of those models.

EDIT:

While checking out my local Craigslist, I just saw something that might very well explain what is going on with Yamaha's numbering system -- at least with the E-series keyboards.  It turns out that there has already been a Yamaha PSR-273 -- not E273, but just 273.  Still, that is close enough that I bet Yamaha didn't want to cause confusion by introducing a model called a PSR-E273.  Thus, the E360?  We'll see how other E-series models play out!

I don't think they're worried about confusion. After all they've already had a PSR550 and a PSR-S550, and if we look, I'm sure that we can find others! And we had a PSR3000 that was later and more advanced than the PSR8000!

Logically, if they go to PSR-SX, then PSR-EX makes sense.
It's not what you play, it's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

There is still no successor for PSR-S670 in sight :'( Launch of this keyboard was in 2016, so it's about time.

In this price range there are currently no reasonable keyboards available.

I really wouldn't mind something refreshing from Yamaha in this price range but with my luck they will introduce the successor right after I purchase the current PSR-S670.  ::) :)

I wonder why they insist with current model? To much on inventory? Its good enough and no need for change? What do you guys think?
