    The 480 motor is part # PKZ4416. I think it is a lower power 480, probably closer to the 450 or 400.
    I should add that I am mainly concerned about the weight of the motor at 87 grams (3.1 oz).
    Do...

    RE: DX7S must stop the beeping

    it beeps when you turn it on to tell you it is on. Some engineer probably thought it was a cool thing to do. And it also beeps when you do various program changes, etc.
