RG1570 trem question - does it stay in tune when....?

A quick question about the RG1570's trem. I've been eyeing an S series (likely S32-000 or S520). I like what I read about the trem and when I played it and tried to tune it at the head (with locking nuts unlocked), tuning one string didn't knock the others out of tune.

I realise the RG1570 is much more expensive, but the guitar is tempting. However, and I don't know anything about its trem, if I tune a string at the head (with the nuts unlocked) does it stay in tune like the S520 did, or would it go out of tune like other Floyd Rose trems?

When I say "tuning a string", I mean altering it sufficiently to get it in tune. I don't mean to change the basic tuning of one of more strings. Hope that makes sense.

the 1570 will go out of tune if you adjust one string.

only the S series have the zero point trems

That's a natural part of how a floyd rose trem works.

As they said, that is a natural part of a floating trem system. However, you'll get used to it, and in my opinion the Edge Pro is much better.
