The Kurzweil K2000 sounding warmer than later K-workstations

Is it true that the K2000 actually sounds slightly warmer & darker than the 2500, 2600 and 2661 ? Two different people I know have suggested this, and as they're so cheap now and the VAST engine is massive, it looks a great investment.

I have to say yes. I used to have a K2661 and found it sounded too clean for my tastes. I found a K2vx for such a great price I couldn't pass it up. I found that it sounds warmer and darker than the K2661. I cannot speak on the other models that I've never owned.

thanks Max, just what I wanted to hear ;) I've found several of these for sale at ridiculous prices, so will have to go for one.

Man,

Go for a K2500R with KDFX (Super FX card)
It is what I wanted the K2000 to be.

Same sound as K2000, but double polyphony and RAM.
Better envelopes. MUCH better display.
Better transposing of samples.
Fantastic midicontroller, yes even as a rackunit!
And when you add the KDFX, it takes the K2000 sound to another level.

Forget the K2000.
