I doubt if anyone on this forum is using a Casio CTK-710 Dave since the members here on KC tend to be of a more discriminating nature for their sound needs. :cool: In other words, who cares if that puppy burns up anyway? :D Just as long as nobody is hurt in the process of its demise. ;) At least Casio is on top of the matter and handled it in a timely and discretionary fashion. Which can't be said for some of the keyboard manufacturer's slow, lackadaisical approach to obvious, albeit, of lesser degree offense(s). One that comes to mind is fluctuating quality control issues seen over a broad spectrum of the production scale i.e. more than one keyboard line, etc., and the length of time it takes to weed them out. Kudos to the companies that do their utmost to keep things under control and nip them in the bud as quickly as possible. Case in point is Casio Ltd. apparently. :thu:
