Peter H., Germany – Yamaha Clavinova CVP-55
Absolutely great product and excellent service and support! I purchased the USB floppy emulator N-Drive 1000 for our ca. 20 year old Clavinova CVP-55 which is in excellent shape, except for a broken floppy drive at the time. The N-Drive arrived shortly after ordering and without any problems (like customs issues, etc.). Installing it was pretty easy and took probably 30 minutes. Could have been faster but I hadn’t done that before and was extremely careful not to break anything.
After installation, the N-Drive worked in general, but with certain issues when switching between virtual floppies, sometimes even requiring to power the Clavinova off and on again. Now, Nalbantov’s great support kicked in! Their customer service – Thanks so much, Stoyn! – provided me with easy-to-download updates regarding firmware and configuration of the N-Drive as well as clear instruction on how to apply them using the flash drive (USB stick). After two or three attempts, we were successful. Turned out it was a configuration issue related to the proprietary Clavinova CVP-55 system. Since then, it works perfectly!
But not only that the N-Drive works fantastic: we have 3 very old floppy disks which we really wanted to keep using with the N-Drive. However, even with the right software and an own PC-USB floppy drive I wasn’t able to access and convert the floppies into virtual disks myself. So, I sent them to Nalbantov Electronics and they were able to provide me with the converted images the next business day after they received the physical floppy disks. Can you imagine? About 20 year old, pretty much ancient floppy disks, still readable, and now we can use them in the Clavinova via N-Drive like on day one! And – aside from logistics cost for the package – this service didn’t cost a single Cent!
So, I can only recommend Nalbantov Electronics. It’s a great company with excellent products, very fair business conduct as well as highly qualified and very engaged staff. And their promise not to stop until the customer is happy couldn’t be more true!
