Hi folks,
Asking what kind of video monitor to use with the SX900?

Thank you,
Arthur

Hi Arthur,

With the SX900 you need an external USB display adapter (just like with the Genos) to connect an external display. Depending on the USB display adapter used, you can, for example, connect external displays via VGA, HDMI or DVI plugs. The aspect ratio of the external display should be around 16:9 or 16:10 so that the image of the internal display (800*480 pixels) is optimally displayed.

I use the "USB2HDTRIO" adapter by i-TEC (on the Genos). This adapter supports all three mentioned connection types:

Note: Only USB2 adapters are supported (not USB3), and only certain chipsets are supported. If you are using an adapter from the "Compatible USB Display Adapter List for PSR-SX900" list, you are on the safe side in any case.

You can download this list from the SX900 download page:
>>> https://uk.yamaha.com/en/products/musical_instruments/keyboards/arranger_workstations/psr-sx900/downloads.html#product-tabs

Please refer also to page 109 of the SX900 Owner's Manual ("Viewing the Instrumentís Display on an External Monitor").


Best regards,
Chris

No. The touch feature has to be native, not external.

Hi Live Musician Newbie,

Yes, Fred is right: While it is possible to connect an external touch screen display to the Yamaha Synths Montage and MODX, the Yamaha arranger keyboard models Genos and SX900 (not SX700/600!) unfortunately only support the connection of an external standard display, i.e. WITHOUT touch function.


Best regards,
Chris

Thank you, yes thats what I meant. (To be able to use the Touch feature)

SX should enable this feature, as Yamaha is anyways supporting external keyboard and mice.

I wish the external monitor could also be an ipad WITH the touch screen, I dont get on with the 900 screen, I think my fingers are too dry and it sohould be angled up more.

As an addon the compatibility of the type of display adapter, make sure it has either the DL165 or DL195 chipset as the adapter needs to be fully DataLink compatible. There are other brands out there that are not mentioned on the Yamaha list (I couldn't buy any on the list here in the UK), but as I say check the chipset.
