Couldn't be less.
If the specs are real, then the prize of genos could be hardly justify now.
PSR SX has features that miss on Genos too. Sliders and Pot for 2000 USD ?

I just had a look at the official announcement on the yamaha europe website and they only seem to mention the PSR SX900.
This is what they say ...

quote
Take your performance to a whole new dimension with the PSR-SX. Replacing the hugely successful PSR-S series, the PSR-SX900 is the new generation in Digital Workstation sound, design and user experience
unquote

Taking their words literaly it would seem the PSR SX900 is ment to be replacing the entire PSR-S series line (9xx, 7xx and 6xx)?
Maybe a software license key will unlock features, based on the amount paid or maybe just inaccurate phrasing on the website ....

A new YEM seems to be out and the change list (below) mentions the PSR-SX700.

[V2.5.2 to V2.5.3]
Now supports the PSR-SX900 and PSR-SX700.
Solved some other minor problems.

So the PSR SX900 is not ment to replace the entire PSR-S line afterall.

I find that there were some errors in the rumors. So we have:

* SX900 has 1337 voices, SX700 has 986 voices, not 1337.
* Both SX900 and SX700 have parts R1, R2, R3, not only SX900.
* Both SX900 and SX700 have mp3 recording, not only SX900
* NO revo drums on SX900 and SX700.

Wow, your are right. In this context:

* The entry level digital piano P-125 has usb audio (and it's cool with iPad connected)
* The top of the line Genos does not have usb audio

So this is kind of controversial. But if even the Genos does not have it, why should PSR series.

I hope that the hard bass and clicked keys now are history on the PSR models. And of course, scat voice in multipads. If that's the case, then I'll buy myself a PSR SX 900.

It this true ? Because in data manuel there are 8 Drumkits that are revo drums on Genos. I mean the Rockkit, Popkit, Jazzkit, R&B, EDM, Trap, and so on. It is true in Data List there are not name "Revo Drums" but they sound the same as Genos Revo drums.
On the demo Style you can hear clearly the Rock and Popkits. So how can you explain this ?

You are right. They use drum kits having the same name. But the data list of the SX900 does not contain the word "revo" at all. So I doubt, it is available.

It seems that it s just the kit without Wave Cycling. There are 3 kits missing from the Genos. VintageOpen, Vintagemuted and Jazzkit.

It is not clear to me how the "chord looper" is used during live play from just watching the demo that was provided. I would like to hear someone explain and show how it would be used live.

I didn't even know Yamaha could provide a "style section reset", they should have given us that gem ... a long time ago.

The Third Voice (R3) is a really great upgrade for the way I use the Keyboard, it would save me having to flip to an OTS while playing live. I set up my custom styles with a specific MAIN to be used for the Instrumental section of each song. A lot of times I would like to do my leads with one instrument and then hand off the lead to a second instrument but in order to do that I have to hide that second voice in one of the other OTS positions. This new upgrade fixes that problem.  ;)

Hi Drake,

I think that it works exactly like the chord sequencer on Korg. There is a Record start/stop button, start records during live play, starting at next beat 1. And there is a play button. So I expect it to be identical to chord sequencer.

I was hoping, that the chord looper was memorised with the registration.  That is really cool.

From the documentation, it does not get clear, if a single chord sequence is save to registry, or the complete chord looper bank. I think that the reference to the bank is stored in registry. So we have up to 8 chord sequences saved with any registration.

Hello Guys, in addition to the functions mentioned above, Yamaha fulfilled one of my wishes and is the Mp3 Audio recorder, no longer need to go to the PC, to make the conversion, the other wish is not yet there and is: Tools Advanced Edition in "Song Creator" for example: piano roll, magnifying glass (to expand the scrolling of events) scroll key, Track View function to delete, move or copy, or correct data in the form of tracks or
whole bars.  but I am  very happy with the new flagship, I think it's a breakthrough since the S975. Greetings. Hans

On the specs page, the SX900 and 700 both have the Style Recommender. Could that be coming back to the Genos in an update?

Also noticed that they both have S.Art sounds, but not S.Art 2. Interesting... And no dedicated Super Articulation buttons. Apparently they can be assigned to a foot pedal or to the assignable buttons.

Plus one, when I look at the new user interface and playlist feature, just to name 2 things it’s a winner for sure.  I have an s970 that I may have to replace.  If you didn’t buy a Genos for one reason or another, this may be the board for you.

In terms of voices and DSP, SX900 is basically a Tyros5.

It has:
- no CFX
- no C7
- no Kino strings
- and, unfortunately, no SA2 voices

But it has:
- 3 Revo drums from Genos without round-robin (Live drums)
- some EDM drum kit from Genos

All the other sounds and DSP come from Tyros5.

They are starting to pop up on the websites of the larger stores now. Prices in Holland vary from € 2.199,- to € 2.356,-. That is about € 225 to € 400 more than the S975, am I right? If it goes anything like the pricing of the Genos at it's introduction, it pays off to wait a couple of months for the initial prices to go down about 10%. A "cooling-off period" of a few months also helps to be able to make a more rational decision about the purchase, instead of going along with the hype of a new product  ;). Meanwhile S975 is now priced at € 1.625,-

I wonder if a PSR SX900 will be an upgrade to my Tyros 4. It would give me some of the newer voices and DSP's, new styles and drumkits. But I would definitly have to try one first to see if the keybed is any good if you are used to the Tyros FSX keybed, which I like a lot.

Is anyone else also considering the PSR SX900 as a replacement for their Tyros 4 or 5?

I think prices will drop even more than 10%. The Genos started off at €4500 at introduction, but half a year later shops like Bax and Thomann listed it for less than €3700. An S975 can already be purchased for less than €1700. Bax puts the SX900 at €2356, whic is almost 40% more expansive than it's predecessor. That's a price not many people will be willing to pay.
Regarding the T4 versus ths SX900. The SX900 has some great new features, some of which also can be found on the Genos. But as you already stated yourself, it lacks the FSX keybed. It also has just 61 keys. And it can only connect two foot pedals (1 switch, 1 expression) whereas the T4/5 can connect three pedals (2 switch, 1 expression). Also: no SA2, no ensemble voices, no angle-adjustable display. So it depends on what features you would need the most. For me, 76 keys are a must, so the SX700/900 are not an option. Likewise with the three foot pedals.

I'm holding on to the T5 untill Yamaha launches the Genos 2 :)
