    Hi!

    Sorry for the mistakes, my English knowledge is still a bit weak.

    I would have to choose between 2 keyboards, in which I would ask for help from those who know each other.
    They are roughly the same price.
    Both have sound editing, mixer, effects, song editor, etc.

    Casio CT-X3000:
    Released in 2018
    Advantages:
    • new, guarantee
    • USB port, pendrive connection
    • Very lively voices (especially acoustic guitar, wind instruments)
    • With stronger pressing, the tone changes (more realism)
    • Save 100 user tones and 100 user rhythms

    Technics SX-KN6000
    Released in 1999
    Advantages:
    • More detailed setup options
    • More features
    • Large, color graphic display
    • Aftertouch function
    • Greater sound power, multi-way speaker

    Disadvantages:
    • Used, no warranty, repairs more difficult
    • For a computer connection, you need a MIDI-USB converter
    • Only floppy can be used
    • Some of the acoustic tones are less lifelike (but there are more tones)
    • Only 40 user tones and rhythms can be saved

    Which one would you buy?

    Thanks in advance for the answers!

    I think you've already answered your own question.

    With a 20 year old keyboard the question is not IF if will fail but rather WHEN it will fail.

    Plus the Casio has more realistic voicings.

    There are other alternatives.

    Perhaps if you explain your keyboard skill level and what functions you want within the keyboard

    I'm still a beginner, hobby user.
    But I like the sophisticated, beautiful sound, but I also like to experiment.

    Summary, in Casio likes life-like acoustic instruments and USB
    + pendrive connection.

    In Technics, there are a lot of editing options, the aftertouch feature and a color graphics display.

    That is why it is difficult to choose.

    +1. "Sound quality varies with dynamics" is a key feature of acoustic instruments. A synth without it, will sound dead.
