Straight forward quality keyboard
I purchased this for my teenage son. I think its a great board to start with as the sounds are quite good, it has a solid midi implementaion, and (in my sons case) the addition of speakers are quite useful. I am no stranger to keyboards as i have several From varios manufacturers (Kurzweil, Yamaha, Korg, Novation, Roland).
This board does not have as many sounds and bells/whistles as other boards. However, the sounds are quality, not mediocre. The interface is clear and intuitive. The manual is straightforward. Its easy to get going quickly. And inlike that more sounds can be downloaded from the Kurzweil website for loading into user presets.
I was considering a Yamaha MoX board along with this. The Yammy manages to cram more features in than you can shake a stick at. However, this comes at the expense of a less clear and inuituve interface and a manual that is difficult to navigate (yes, i read it and thought my son would not navigate the complexity well).
Bottom line - this is a quality keyboard that is a pleasure to use. The sounds are very good.
