Is the Yamaha YEP-842S just another "pretty face?" I've seen some evals from when the instrument first hit the market, but nothing recently. Can the extra $1000+ additional to the 642 be justified? Yamaha claims to have corrected some of the annoying problems with the 642, such as that flat C and that awkward grip. Yahama even claims it has better intonation and air flow than the 642. Can anybody verify this besides Yamaha? If any of you know any negatives about the horn (other than the inflated price), I'd like to hear about them. Thanks a lot, everybody.
