I think the OP was asking for a low cost keyboard with features similar to the SX900. It's really up to Yamaha's engineers to figure out how to hit that price point.

Eileen's comment about buttons for players with vision problems is well-taken. I don't presume to know how to make a keyboard easier to use for people with limited or no vision. Shucks, the UIs that I designed were horrible for the sighted.  :)

I'm sure that the engineers take volume discounts, wiring, assembly, testing, etc. into account and cost is never as simple as just the component cost alone. Further, a very large portion of keybaord costs are development, including voice, multipad and style development.

All the best -- pj

I understand the SX900 pricing might be a serious problem for a certain number of home players ( like me ).

Sometimes people have other financial obligations and/or priorities.

I went for the SX700 and did not regret my decision at all.
I like the SX700 very much.

It is well known the SX900 has 10 features which are not present in the SX700 but the SX700 has a great sound and is a small pro keyboard at an acceptable street price, IMHO.

It is absolutely true the SX900 offers more than the SX700.
BUT ... all depends on the owner's needs and wishes, I guess.

like others have said a touch screen UI is actually cheaper than hardware UI, plus more flexible, manufacturer can introduce new features with firmware updates for existing hardware layout etc. It's debatable user experience is enhanced with touchscreen, personally I prefer the tactile feedback of physical buttons.
Cost of a 7" touch screen from China seems to be about $30.
