Looking for PR110 manual

Hi, I've recently inherited a Technics PCM Digital Ensemble PR110 keyboard, but unfortunately there is no manual.

Does anyone know where I might find a manual ?

Re: V1.3 to V1.6

Hi Rien
Hold down the first top four sound buttons (piano etc) and switch the keyboard on. Your version will show up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
No obvious benefit - lots of risk. See http://www.synthzone.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/…

I have successfully fitted a Gotek drive to my KN5000 and also to a Yamaha PSR9000. You don't need a 2Gb USB stick, but anything over is wasted, so don't worry. I use a 4Gb on mine and a 32Gb is used on my friend's PSR9000.
