Additional information/September 15.1997

* The KN5000's Operating System will reside in FLASH ROM
* so any bug fixes, upgrades, etc., can be incorporated
* using a floppy disk. That means no more trips to
* the Service Center for EPROM chip repacement.

** There is an optional HD-AE5000 (professional extension) for the KN5000.
** HD-AE5000 is the hard disk, audio and parallel port extension, offering
** 1920 songs, 120 file load scripts for 32 songs each incl. auto start and
** auto load options, separate outputs for bass and drums and the parallel
** port (EPP) for the very important data backup.

*** Note - the PC software HD-Tech Manager for HD-AE5000 works only
*** with old windows 95 , with later windows versions it is not working
*** even in emulated environment
