Word's cannot explain the feeling I get every time I sit behind this beautiful monster. The Korg Kronos X 88 key synthesizer is everything you can ask for and more. You don't just purchase a synth.

Ease of Use
How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player?
I would say there is a bit of a learning curve if you are an inexperienced synth player, and/or have never owned a Korg synth before. Although there is the learning curve. A couple of hours with this beauty, and you will be well on your way.

The sound quality is one of the several amazing perks of owning this instrument. You will not be disappointed if you decided to purchase this. 10/10
How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well?
I've read many complaints about the key's versus other synths. I personally love the feel of the key's. It took me a little time to adjust from semi-weighted to weighted key. With that being said. You have to get used to most new things, and this is no different.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Most people will probably think. "Wow that price is absurd!" As much as I would have loved to get it at a lower price. This beauty is worth every penny.
