Out of interest, does anyone know why Yamaha called it the XF? I would have thought the name sequence would have run ES, XS, YS or ZS. Does the ‘F’ denote the Flash aspect or something?

how long did you think to come to that conclusion? gush…
ES, XS were completely different keyboards - this is just a different flavor of XS. F stands for freaking.

Perhaps ‘XS’ is for Xtra Super and ‘XF’ is for Xtra Fantastic? :)

I agree, but not totally sold on it.
Could reference Flash, or FINAL, or FANALE
I don’t give an “F” either way..LOL I like the look of it, and it does have some nice new sounds, that can be used on the XS as well.

What idiots.

XS = Xpanded System

XF = Xpanded W/ Flashrom

The F denotes that it has the expandable Flashrom added.
