I'm Looking into upgrading from my pa900, I'm thinking about the pa3x or the pa1000. I can get the pa1000 for $2000 or the pa3x fully loaded (sounds, styles, performances, etc.) for $3000. (part of what I need is looks does the pa3x look better because its more professional or does the pa1000 look better because its newer)?

Without mentioning what are your needs for an upgrade, polling does not make sense in this question - both instruments are not comparable directly because of different category.

Good explanation about that you can you find in the thread Pa4x-"New Korg PA1000 vs PA4X".

Upgrade an unit within a category of Pa900 - especially if new design is a criterion - means to go to Pa1000.

Upgrading from one category to the next means going to P3x or Pa4x, ignoring design.

If I had the means to spend $3000, spend a little more and go to the PA4X. Which some very good features.
But that's just my opinion.

If you haven't mentioned the price i would have said go for the 3x.
I wouldn't spend more than 2000$ for a used 3x now that the 4x has ~3500$ new..I would also said spend a bit more and get a pa4x!It is way better than the 3x and more good looking than the 1000 ( i don't really like the pa1000 appearance a lot ).Pa3x and 4x are metal without speakers while pa1000 is plastic and with speakers built in...
If you can lower the price to ~2500$ with the set (if it fits your needs) and 256mb ram then go for it else go for 4x...

Hi friends:

About this topic, there is another point to check, where PA 1000 is made.-
PA 3x, PA4x, are made in Italy, with a high qualified final control.-
PA 700/100 as it's predecesors PA 600/900 are made in china, with a less final control.-
So before considering prices, must take in count the place where they manufactured.-
Just a simple note: on italian kyb, wires of joystick are attached to joystick case, meanwhile chinese one wires "fly" inside de cabinet, so when you use a lot joystick, wires cut down and or you solder them again or change the joystick.-
In my country, price difference are higher than other countries, see:

PA 600 (in stock) is at US 1.050
PA 700 (arriving november / december) is at US 1320

PA 900 (in stock) is at US 1750
PA 1000 (arriving november / december) is at US 2400

PA4x international 76 (in stock) US 5025
PA4x oriental 76 (in stock) US 5325

IMHO an taking in count what i mention above, if in your countries are what most member published go for PA3x or PA4x.-

With regards
Eduardo

If I'm just buying a keyboard: Used pa3x or new pa1000 (each $2000) Which one?

Hi Korg Fan:

If PA3x is in good condition, without any doubt i go for it.-
Although PA1000 have (just read in user manual) same sounds than PA4x, PA3x have more controls that you'll really love: sliders, 3 buttons, ribbon, EC5, and of course if it's made in Italy
Hope this helps you.-
Eduardo
