When problems actually crop up, there should be no surprise. Buyer beware.


You make it sound like it's more acceptable for these ridiculous issues to occur, just because they 'warn' us! eek

Not at all. If I were planning on using the RD700NX in a way which it is advertised to be able to handle but the user manual warns that it probably won't be able to handle, I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. The problem is that their advertising seems to be in conflict with their caveats in the user manual. Not good.

I wish I could find an fp7f. The only thing I have to go off is comparing it to the hp307. I just don't get it, it's like piano places seem to think that keyboards are a bane.

And when you walk into a place that says keyboard world, well dang it they should have keyboards lol.

I bought the FP-7f blind on the basis that I was reliably informed that it would be an HP307 in a portable (albeit heavy) black plastic box. They were right. The keys are whiter on the FP but through headphones they are as close as dammit. Even the menu is almost identical. The speakers in the HP307 sound more advanced and therefore it sounds and it feels more like sitting at an acoustic piano but other than that, they are almost identical.

Regards. Rimmer

I agree, having owned both, HP307 and FP-7F are essentially the same piano but in different boxes.
