Hi,

Can someone compare Yamaha P-140 vs. Yamaha YDP-160? I am looking for a second instrument for my piano teaching room (the first one is a good acoustic Kawai.) Any advantages one over another, or just a different look? Is touch the same? If not, which one is closer to an acoustic piano?

Thank you.
Marina G.

I believe a console-type digital
has advantages over a stage-type.
It's more like an acoustic
upright: the stand is bolted
to the keyboard unit and
gives the standart ht. from
the floor to the top surface of
the white keys of 28 to 29
inches, and the pedals
are built-in and don't
slip around on the floor.

In this price range, I think
the Casio PX 800 and the M-Audio
DCP 200 give better value,
at $900 each.

i would go for a YDP160 rather than a P140 which has some disadvantages, including the weak speakers and no standard 3 pedals. the action on the both is the same GH action, good enough for most people. if you use it in studio, YDP160 is a much better choice.
