David’s Thoughts:

I do not like this keyboard.  Despite being newer, it seems Yamaha was more interested in cost reduction.  It has the same basic FM sound synthesizer technology as previous models, but they have removed sustain feature as well as any sort of RCA line outputs, reduced the polyphony to 8, andjust generally made it inferior.
