Wow so the P-105 has key off samples, sustain samples, damper resonance and 3 levels of dynamic sampling....that's pretty darn impressive for $100 more than the P-95 that did not have that! I do realize that you can't adjust those parameters,but for $600 bucks plus 128 note polyphony, this sounds like a great lightweight second keyboard, for those quickie gigs!.I can even deal with GHS action and wall wart power supply, lol.

Yup... though I'd hate the idea of buying a board to gig with that didn't have a MIDI port, where I couldn't expand the sounds with a module, or trigger additional sounds to layer/split from a second tier board. A very unfortunate limitation in my book.

It's like Yahama uses a dart board to decide what random inexpensive feature is removed from each dp model.

I feel it's intentional so they "force" the buyer to "buy up" to the P155. Do they honestly believe leaving off the MIDI din In/Out connectors is going to be a crowd pleaser? Still a pretty nice board for the $

Nice try, but the P155 weighs in at 41 pounds and lacks the 3-pedal option. Thanks for playing though! [Linked Image]

I wonder how hard it would be to 'hack' a 5 pin din midi output onto the boards that only have usb midi. It would only be really feasible if the usb midi was an 'add on' and they've just omitted the din output, rather than 'designed in' with a serial data stream from the cpu where there would be no easy way to tap the midi data.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums and I'm undecided between the Casio PX-150 (or perhaps 350) and Yamaha P105. The only shop in my town has the Yamaha P105 but they don't plan to stock any Casio unless I order it, so it's a bit risky. I have heard note decay was rather bad in previous Casio models, which is bad for classical music, so I would like to know: considering that I'm only interested in good sound (through the speakers, though maybe I can afford a couple of monitors in a couple of months) and that I mainly play slow classical pieces like Chopin's nocturne, Beethoven's moonlight sonata, Fur elise, you get my drift... what is the best piano for me between the two? I know it's a subjective matter, but if you think that one of those pianos is clearly better for my purposes, I'd love to know your opinion.

Thanks in advance smile

I tried them out this week, now granted I write songs play clasic rock and blues more than classical now, so decay while important is not as big a factor for me.

In my opinion, the speakers on the 105 are superior than those on the 150. (From my note in the other thread though, the 350's speakers are excellent, and I do not know if it is just the two tweeters)

While the P105 still has the same GHS action as the P95 it does feel different, a slight improvement. The Rhodes sound on the 105 is an improvement as well.

Between the 150 and 105 I would recommend the 105, but for $200 more I would go with the 350.

Hi Sam, Possum P95,

Just posted this request on another thread.

Could you elaborate more on the key action of the P-105 and PX150 in terms of feel, playability, closeness to acoustic action between the two, and key to piano sound coordination. Is one less bouncy / wobbly than the other.

Also, in your opinion how do the GP sounds compare between the two.
