I have an old DGX 205 that I've had for many years and it's been pretty good, but now worn out and I'm looking to purchase another keyboard. I called a local music store inquiring about his selections, and he said he no longer carries the Yamaha brand because of so many service issues over the past few years. He carries Casio only now. He mentioned something about them being made in China now, and the quality control is not what it used to be "back in the day". I'm trying to find out if this is true or not, or was he just saying these things to entice me to purchase one of his Casio's. I'd appreciate any input on this subject. I'm quite the novice by the way, and usually buy the "automatic music maker" types where all I have to do is press a few buttons here and there. I was looking very strongly at the PSR EW410. Thanks for any help.
