I'm happy with the purchase (hence the "It's OK") star rating. But in retrospect, I should have held out for a used 88-key model. I think it would have a nicer feel.
Keyboard touch sensitivity is much better than the PSR-292. Just as plasticky, but the range of touch sensitivity is much wider. It's easier to learn to play piano with the MM6 than with the PSR-292.
The MM6's sounds are much better than the PSR-292. The main piano is only slightly better, but all the other sounds are significantly better.
The MM6's rhythms and accompaniments are very contemporary and fairly narrow. You won't find a good range of standard genres (e.g. 8beat rock, jazz waltz, and beguine are missing) like on the PSR-292. The MM6 rhythms are primarily rap, dance, and techno. If, like me, you don't use this feature, you won't notice.
Like with the PSR-292, the sequencer in the MM6 has no way to set the volume levels on the individual tracks. For me, this renders the sequencer useless.
The performance memory is very handy in that it lets you set up your favorite sounds and tweak the effects. Then with one button press, you've got your favorite setup. I use this to quickly get a full volume piano without all the reverb that is in the factory patch.
The metronome feature is perfect for practicing. You do have to turn off the annoying bell every time you turn it on. Fortunately, this is just a matter of holding down the metronome button for a second or two and dialing up 0/4 on the time signature.
The headphone jack is nice and loud. I use a set of super-cheap five buck Magnavox earbuds from Target and they sound great. Bear in mind that the headphone jack is a 1/4" (large) jack so you'll need an adapter for standard 1/8" portable device headphones.Read more ›
I made a discovery that I wanted to pass along. I have an old Sony sound bar that wasn't being used and, using a 3.5 mm to 1/4 in. Adapter, hooked it up to the board. It works really well!! The sound is spectacular. This wouldn't work for pro gigs unless you're playing to a very small room but for home use it's great. Since I hadn't noticed anyone mentioning something similar, I thought I'd pass it along. It saved me having to buy an Amp, and maybe others could improvise too.

This workstation is very simple to use. The only "downfall" is that you either have to use headphones, or you have to buy speakers (unless you already have some). Read morePublished on June 5, 2012 by Mommy48809
