Hi Islam,
I'm not the only one who's asking that? I've bought a Yamaha PSR-A 2000 in august 2015, which I use mostely for a musical band I'm in. It's a little bit damaged, I think. Then I've bought a PSR-A3000 as a christmas gift in 2016. With both I have 4 or 5? years using those keyboards so I really need an update to both and use the other 2 as  backupp keyboards. I don't know if the model shall be releaced since I explore the arranger workstation list on the Yamaha website, and it doesn't appear, nor I don't know how to follow the development of the model. I really don't know the answer, sorry. If I'm wrong please correct me, since I want to follow development.

Here are the facts:
PSR-A3 - 1995
PSR A1000  - 2002 (+7 years)
PSR A2000 2010 (+8 years)
PSR A3000 2015 (+5 years)

So a guess is that we can expect the new oriental model on 2021 (+6 years).
But as we all know every forecast is now change due COVID-19 pandemia.

Another interesting point to keep in mind is that the oriental model is always based to another existing model.
PSR A3 was a variation of PSR 520, A1000 was a variation  of PSR 1000, A2000 was based on PSRs700 and A3000 is a variation of PSR 770.

I believe that we already have the model in which A4000 will be based and this is SX700.
So if everything goes as expected I'm sure that we will see the A4000 sometime in 2021 !

Hi Danand, I agree that it is very likely (NOT sure) that we will see the A4000 or whatever it is called at any time in 2021, we have to wait and see.

On the other hand I think we will see very soon the replacement of the S670. since this has 6 years in the market. Cheers. Hans

Thanks for the chart bro! I believe also that the tentatively named PSR-A4000 or what ever the number is will be releaced no sooner or later than 2021 I think. Finally gonna have to purchase a new keyboard for that year and I'm just waiting for it.

It definitely seems that Yamaha has hit the brakes on the development of many of their keyboard lines.  Some of it could be Covid-19 related, but not all of it.  Normally, a replacement for the PSR-E463 would've been out earlier this year, and therefore in development before the pandemic, but so far, not a peep.  The newest higher-end portable keyboard on their US website is the PSR-I500 -- an Indian music based offshoot of the E463 (though it does include some interesting features that I want to check out).  As far as I can see in the photos, it uses the same shell/housing as the E463 but just has different functions for some of the buttons.

I would've expected replacements for the PSR-E263 and E363 last year, but all we got was the PSR-E273 this year, and nothing else.

And of course, as noted above, the PSR-S670 is now 5-6 years old.  It was preceded by the PSR-S650, and when the models ending in "50" were replaced with those ending in "70", we got the PSR-S670, S770, and S970.  But since then, the higher models have been replaced twice, with the S775 and S975, and then the SX700 and SX900, while the S670 continues unchanged.

Good summary. But not only at Yamaha, also at the other manufacturers (Korg, Casio etc.) nothing happens. It seems to me that one is waiting for the other.

I suppose there are only so many different keyboards manufactures can produce and it is always going to be the most popular ones that get upgraded. A lot of the small keyboards are usually purchased by schools but Music Lessons seemed to have been put on the back boiler in many. So not as many sales.

Man, you forgot to write a missing model. PSR OR700 released with PSR S700 and S900.

OR700 wasn't part of the pro-series, according my opinion.
Based on 99,99% on A-1000 with some additions from more recent, low-priced arrangers.
Nothing special...

Hello danand !!!!
No you are wrong ... having A1000 OR700 and A2000 i can say that OR700 is much much better than A1000. Also OR700 is like PSR-S700/900.. A1000 is like PSR-1000/2000.
also almost all PSRs oriental or not have the same engine and same controls but OR700 have nothing to do with A1000 ... Still have them both !!!

Spiros !!!
