    I’ve said enough about the internal vs. external speaker debate in other comments. If I could go external, I would!

    Obviously, I can’t argue with your 700 choice. 🙂 I did consider the 800 until I discovered the 700 “LS” option. The 800 has the same sound system, the obvious 76 note upper keyboard, 9 lower drawbars as opposed to seven on the 700 and adds nine percussion drawbars. Of course, all of those extra “Goodies” will set you back a few more dollars.

    Love the black finish – It’s simply a beautiful piece of “furniture”.

    Hi Curt
    Out of the range available, I find the OAX 700 to be the best balanced, both in looks and layout, (It would have to be in black though, as while the white looks good on stage, for me personally, the white finish looks very poor in a domestic environment) however I would go without speakers and use Adam A7x speakers instead.

      Hi Guys

      Just a point to beare in mind when choosing a model. The 600 suited me fine. As I am not a great pedal player 17 notes were enough for me. However, I found that the expression pedal is to far away on this model if you are of the short legged variety. It is a bit impossible to play the manuals and pedals comfortably. I came from the Abacus Duo Pro which is made up of moveable bits and never gave it a thought. I will make my own mod for this at some point, in the meantime I am using a volume pedal from my abacus.

      At the Oktoberfest this year I was playing the 700 they had there and I did not seem to have any problems with that one, but later realized the volume pdal is in a slightly different place owing to the 25 note PB

      Short legged varieties beware!!!
