    "SO CLOSE, BUT..."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    The new piano samples are stunning. I can't imagine a situation where this instrument wouldn't be among (if not the only) the top choices. The rest of the sounds come, of course, from the Motif series and are pure ear candy.
    Feature:
    Yamaha is to be congratulated on a very effectively redesigned user interface - much more useful for live performance.
    Ease of Use:
    The bulk of the sounds on board this instruments are very useful as-is, and there seems to be plenty of adjustment available for the perfectionist.
    Quality:
    My long experience with Yamaha products (30-plus years) has shown them to be among the best in the industry and this one appears to be no exception.
    Manufacturer Support:
    This area is a bit of an unknown - I've never had to use it...
    Value:
    It seems that every time a new version appears, the price goes up. I suppose they have to recoup that R&D budget somehow but it just seems a bit excessive. (Their timing wasn't that great, either but they didn't have any control over the stock market debacle, did they?)
    The Wow Factor:
    It's just unnecessarily BIG. One of my primary considerations for choosing a 76-key instrument over an 88 is the gain of that precious extra 4~7 inches of stage (and transport) area.There's no defensible reason why a 76-key instrument needs to be 52 inches wide. Mount the controller wheels on the upper panel and lose that ridiculously wide left end-block and they've got a winner. As it is, it's not appreciably smaller (or lighter) than my MO8.
