The SX900 is back in our store! Not good for my peace of mind!
« on: November 16, 2021, 04:25:38 PM »
Hello friends. Yesterday I discovered that the SX900 is back in my store. Using the a Genos a lot has made me value the touch screen more and more. I have an S975 for gigs, and it is a very well balanced keyboard that I really like. I therefore skipped the SX99, waiting to see what comes next. But now it is back, and I have sinful thoughts of adding it to my collection…. Alas, being human is hard…😀🎹🌲

Hi Toril,

If you go for an SX900 you will never regret it. :)
I love the SX900. It is a great machine.

Good luck ! JH

Toril, like you, I’m “waiting to see what comes next”.  However, the SX 900 is great and does more than what I’ll ever need.  But, improved voices and more creative, professional-sounding styles are always tempting with new products.  So, we wait.

But ... it might take more than 3 years or even longer before an SX900 successor will come on the market ...

i have a Genos which is great . . . . to me the SX900 is a great keyboard and probably more portable than Genos. For that reason I have been tempted to buy it . . . . but . . . . don't really need another keyboard . . . so, maybe sell Genos and trade for SX900 . . . . . ?   i have been wondering but it is hard to let Genos go.

so, buy another keyboard ?

Toril, this is like a diet . . . .. have to resist the temptation to eat/buy . . . . . . with will power . . . .

Have a great day

I am sure you would be sorry if you got rid of your Genos for an SX900. Although this is a nice little keyboard it is not a Genos. I have both but I would not let my Genos go.

I agree fully with Eileen, the Genos is MUCH better. But for gigs the PSRs are handy. I will never sell my Genos!

I fully agree with the Speakers but the SX900 is the best gigging keyboard ever.

To have them both is a dream come true.
Who knows ...

.Eileen, you are the Lucky One  !🤪

It is only a piece of hardware, no more no less. I don't regret one day I swapped from a Genos to a SX900 . Be it that I am a homeplayer and the Sx900 offers me all the quality and functions I need  to not regret my  (personal) choice  ;)
My best regards,

Yes it may be only a piece of hardware but the quality of Genos is so much better  overall. Then we all make our own choices and if happy with them that is all that matters. I use my SX900 for rehearsals as it is light to take out each week but when we do the main show my Genos is used.

For sure @Eileen, that is indeed a practical and smart approach. Now you have 2 nice keyboards for every situation.  ;)

There is no reason to think the SX900 is not a pro arranger keyboard because it is.

Everybody here will agree with me, I hope.

IMHO it might be a mistake to compare the SX900 with the Genos.

They are both complete different high end arranger keyboards but they are made by the same manufacturer we all love.

High quality, the best arrangers in keyboard world.
Different applications.

Bye for now, JH

I agree, I've done gigs with the SX900 it does all it does and does it well.  I've got some Christmas house parties I'll be playing in the retirement community I live in and taking the SX900 is a lot easier than taking the Genos and my sound system. The audience will love what they hear.

Hi Friends :

If possible, I would like to hear from other members too what their opinion is about the Genos and the SX900 and why they have decided ( or have the intention ) to buy one ( which one ? ) or both pro arranger keyboards.

It might also be very interesting to know why ( many ) members have not upgraded yet and probably never will.

Thank you so much for your comments.
They are very much appreciated.

For your information, I personally have bought the SX900 for its 61 keys and built in speakers due to the lack of space in our one bedroom apartement ... 
I had loved to have the Genos instead : editing, recording and daws are my passion.

On the other hand I must admit I love my SX900 very much.
It is a great and pro arranger. No reason to change it.🤭

Best regards,
Jeff Hollande

Hello Jeff,
  I honestly can not see the purpose of you constantly asking these sort of questions.
What does it achieve. We all buy what suits us and what we can afford and in your case what will fit in. Genos its self is not much larger than the Tyros 5 64 note keyboard and is lighter to carry. It has 3Gb of expansion memory many more assignable slots. Revo Drum kits. A much larger screen. Assignable Drawbars which are very useful as Tempo is one of the things you can assign allowing you to raise and lower while playing.
 Around 58 Gb user storage.
Three USB ports. After touch. Richer sound. Three Pedal sockets. All in all the best Flag Ship Yamaha have produced so far.
 Very much a personal choice on if you purchase or not. The thing is don't ask us what we want. What do you want.

I started this topic on a light note. Since I already have a Genos I do not have to choose between them. I was just wondering if I should get the SX 900 for gigs because it is lighter to take along. But I will stick with my S975. Lets go back to playing music on our wonderful keyboards🎹🎹🎹

My opinion is from a musician who I don't think will ever own a Genos, for financial reasons. For me to have the top of the PSR's makes me very happy. The SX900 is a keyboard that is 90% complete to me. I say 90% because there will always be something missing, even Genos is missing something, everyone knows that. The SX900 is lightweight, smaller in size, with built-in speakers where I can rehearse and even perform, just with its built-in speakers. These days I did a presentation, for about 30-40 people, using only the SX900 and the Sub Yamaha KS SW100, the sound was wonderful and I was surprised by the sound quality myself. I use the microphone connected directly to the keyboard and I made an adaptation that I can connect 2 microphones to the "mic" input. The SX 900 features the new speaker system that plays the sound forward, not just up.
Of course it doesn't compare to the Genos, but I can say with certainty that the SX900 doesn't fall short. Remember that for a good show, you will need without a good musician (rehearsing a lot), have a pleasant voice, good speakers, dress in artist clothes, be able to cheer people up, and finally, have a good keyboard. Just having a PSR or a Genos won't make that much difference.

This is the opinion of a Brazilian musician with more than 20 years of experience. My greetings to everyone!

Much in agreement with Enildo’s assessment.  As an aging gigger, I passed on the Genos because of size and weight.  Furthermore, my few chops would barely scratch the surface of what the Genos can do.  All those great features would most likely see little use.  Thus, the SX 900 fits the bill, with a great rhythm section for a vocals-based act, primarily among retirement seniors.  However, I’ll hold out the possibility of being tempted, if a Genos II ever appears.  Minds can change.

I dumped the SX900 as the tiny weenie slot for the registrations along the top could only be accessed with a pointer. The 'sliders' have to be moved with the black wheel. The touch screen is is a disaster as far as I am concerned. The YEM is hated by many, you need a computer to get the files. Those who have paid out copious quantities of funds to buy into the kbds with the YEM are hardly likely to admit it is a gimmick. The Genos went a month before the  SX900.
So I stay with my Tyros4.
