I am looking for measurements from the desk top that the MODX8 would be sitting on to the red lines...
I haven't posted enough to reply to your PM, but the (rough) measurements you want are:

Front
Top of white keys 113mm
Top of black bit 90mm
Bottom of black bit 33mm

End
Top of end panels (at front) 100mm
Bottom of end panels (front) 35mm

Back
Lip 130mm
Top of input/output jacks 80mm

I hope that helps.

So I asked on Monday. By "coincidence" Yamaha actually had the repair finished on Monday. Now I have it back. No undue key noises anymore and everything works as expected. It's really nice to be able to play with headphones and not hear the clacking of the keys when releasing them under the headphones :).

Apparently they had to exchange the DM board - whatever that is, probably the main board, because the memory is empty, now. The package after being shipped 9 times (if I am not mistaken) is now really in a bad shape, hope I don't have to send it back again at a later time...

Thanks anyway for your offer, Saul!

Thanks for the update and very glad to hear that you now have a fully functional MODX8. It should definitely not have taken so long to repair though....actually it should not have needed repair this early on!

If it happens again I think you could very reasonably ask for a replacement not a repair.
