The value version of the RX11, priced at 449£ compared to the 799£ Yamaha asked for his bigger brother. It adopts the same exact case, stripping down some of the features: less sounds, a slightly limited memory and no individual outputs for instruments.

Simplicity of use and quality of the digital sounds are retained, making it a good machine for professionals on a budget at that time.

The all plastic body, general bulkiness compared to the features offered and tech limitations (including a non backlit LCD) make this first series of RXs not a very good choice today compared to later, still easy to find, models.
