I love that the new SX is so grabby
« on: January 04, 2020, 01:11:38 AM »
I've had many PSR's almost slip out of my hands. Yamaha was really smart to make this keyboard so easy to grip. For a gigging musician, this is a major improvement.

I also like that the inputs are a little recessed making it less likely to have an accident.

A few years ago, I pulled my back, and my wife came with me to work to help me set up. She was in a hurry to get out, and packed my S970 before I removed my USB. At my next job, the USB drive had been pushed into the keyboard. I had no access to my USB drive, and I had saved no registrations to my USER drive, and the show sucked, and I lost a twice a year client. It cost $350 to fix the keyboard as the USB drive was integrated into a motherboard. This accident might be prevented with the design of the SX keyboards which has the inputs recessed from the bottom back of the keyboard.

Kudos to Yamaha.

I totally agree, the past PSRs were clumsy
For a home player, it probably isnít that important
But
If your moving the keyboard often, then itís very important

Yes, my PSR 975 is slippery and not easy to hold on to when moving it! So this is a good developement!

Hi beakybird,

The USB issue was something I had always brought up and thought was a terrible design by Yamaha. Just to have one USB slot in the previous S keyboards was shameful, careless (and dangerous) just as your situation had proved and would have been my worst nightmare.

But as much as the SX has been improved, I still think Yamaha missed a trick and should have included an Mirco SD slot, I just cannot fathom a reason why it didn't have one (again). I think this is at least one area that Korg will always have one up on Yamaha, the features.
