The KN6000 is fantastic and it goes nicely with my Yamaha Tyros2! I Dont like the small range of rhythms and the music rest. Mine will be 8 years old next year. I fear for the 3 1/2 Disk drive though, sometimes it makes sounds it shouldnt and often on screen says: "Disk Error". I dont even use the drive much anyways!

Plus - shame that Technics stopped making them. :(

The huge versitilty of the KN6000 makes it one of the leaders of the home keyboard market. Not only does it have so many features but - quite refreshingly - they have all been well thought out to provide features that are equally as good as their individual device counterparts. The choice of registrations is huge and it is both GM and GM2 compatible (playback and recording)as well as NX sound which is great for any budding composers out there. The choice of rythms isnt as large as registrations however it is still plentiful, having easily enough variation to provide an accompaniment for most songs and for those more obscure sounds you can create your own accompaniments which can be saved to floppy disk via the integrated 3 1/2 inch floppy disk drive. This ability to save, though almost standard on most good quality keyboards, is invaluable onboard the KN6000 with the ability to save the whole setup of the keyboard, including anything saved in the extensive memory banks of the keyboard which allow quick and easy transition from setup to setup, great for concerts and recitals. This is made easy with a gorgeous user interface which revolves around a large, central, LCD panel with fully customisable arrangement and background. Two powerful speakers and a great bass port make for great sound quality and can belt out quite a volume without amps. As for connectivity there are ports for MIDI cables, computer links, foot peddles and mics. Aesthetically the KN6000 is sleek and cool in a silver case with rounded edges, which makes a change from the usual big, black boxes. With the ability to purchase updates in the form of hardware that plugs into the back of the system the KN6000 can be kept up to date with the possiblity of 'upgrading' it to KN6500 and even KN7000. Though perhaps not for the proffessional concert, the KN6000 is still a fantastic keyboard thats versitility and solid all round performance will cater for almost any of your keyboard requirements.

Ok, well now I have the time to post a proper review on the 6000. Before the 7000 (which I believe contains many 6000 sounds with upgrades), the 6000 was a flagship product of technics with sound which wasen't heard before. They used a new powerful soundset which erased the days of PCM for more fuller sounding effects. The 6000 has a large advanced display for menu & programming. Technics also made the KN6000 look sexy by building the body in a silver attractive finish which made it look unique. The KN6000 has a wide potential and along with the 6500, 7000 may be the worlds most powerful home keyboard. It has an easy to use interface though, but many buttons are grouped for user ease also. Generally, the 6000 is something you should try out if you already haven't. Though the new 7000 includes networking options and many more advancement's, the 6000 is still a popular amazing keyboard which brings a world array of music to the musician.

Technics have rebuilt a totally new keyboard to meet the needs of the new "home keyboard" generation. The 6000 is a great new all in 1 workstation / keyboard for home use. Though it could be good at doing more than the home run, Technics have a bad habit of making "home keyboards". Having use to work for Technics, I met the whole range (including the new 7000). Its not bad!!!, but not for professional production. Its a good looking keyboard and the sounds and editing are great features in the lineup, but for me, i'll be sticking with my Rolands. Unfortunately for technics, they don't have any keyboards which currently come close to a Roland.
