Kurzweil PC3 vs PC3K


I was wondering why the PC3K cost $500-700 more than the PC3 version (actually here in Hungary the K is a good $800 more than the regular one, both of them brand new)? If I see it right, it has a quasi-sampler that can load older K series samples and wav or aiff files from usb sticks, but has no audio input. And while it's flash memory, it's still only 128MB while the Motif XF can load 2 gigs? And why would anyone want to use the old samples from the K2500/2600 series when the newer ones are supposedly better?

Does it worth the extra money? It seems to me that the PC3K is just a filler between the PC3 and the future K3000 (or whatever it'll be called) for Kurz to stay in business. Also they still haven't integrated the long ribbon controller into the chassis, with that it could have been a curiosity among modern workstations.

It wasn't worth it to me, that is why I purchased a PC3 rather than a PC3K.

I think some of the money is in the hardware; similar to how PC2X and PC1X were different mostly in the action of the keyboard and the MIDI sliders for the organ emulator.
