OK, there you have it. What about Casio? Do you know what their first product line was? I’m thinking it was probably digital watches.

Thanks Rich,
I took a look. Casio has an impressive history of innovations. One shouldn’t discount what Casio may come out with in the future in regard to DP’s. I recently bought the PX 130 because of the overwhelming reviews and because I wasn’t aware of other DP’s, made by more namely companies in the music business. Now that I’ve learned more about what’s out there and what I could have had instead, I’m still satisfied with my Casio. Partly due to this forum, it’s obvious to me now that Casio has not earned a reputation equal to the others such as Yamaha.

Casio has also made some other very interesting keyboards in the past, like the CZ-1. And the AZ-1 "keytar" is cool.

Balian,

It's as simple as trying both out and taking home or ordering the one you like the best. Don't get too hung up on tech specs, etc. Both are fine instruments and should last you for years.


I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Balian,

I listened to the PX 130 along with others on Utube and chose it by that alone, I was sold. Also, don’t judge any of them by their internal speakers. Listen to them through headphones for comparison only. The internal speakers are too small to know the full sound capabilities of any model. Utube has many samples on various keyboards at various price ranges. Most Utube recordings were done through monitor speakers or they were able to pipe in the actual sound as you would hear them thought headphones. Use headphones with your computer though if shopping this way. This is how I shopped. The PX 130 was in my affordable price range and I chose it based on the sound given by these Utube samples. I was not disappointed. Now that it’s with me, I play it using a good pair of headphones only. Now, I’m looking on getting a pair of quality monitor speakers.

The other piece that really interests me is the Nord Stage 2.
