Hey, I was wondering, since I don't have a local music store, what Dp is best? I am only interested in piano sounds. I need something that feels realistic, or semi realistic just so I can practice effeciently. That's my main concern, since I'm using a little keyboard with no dynamics. I want to be able to practice effeciently. I was looking into the Casio PX130, Korg SP120 and SP250, the Yamaha P105, but am open to other suggestions within that price range. I was also considering the Yamaha P155, but unless it's truly lightyear better than those, I'd rather save my money. Thanks guys.

Based on the reviews so far, I think you should scratch off the PX130 and replace it with the PX150. The latter is the newer version and apparently is a significant improvement in many dimensions. Based on the pianos you have suggested, I'd say look at the following:

Yamaha P105
Yamaha P155
Yamaha CP33
Kawai ES3
Casio PX150

The P105 is a step up in terms of sound from its predecessor (the P95), but has a cheaper action than the P155 and CP33.

@gvfarns,

You did mean Kawai EP3, right?

It's easy to make those typing errors, I know...

*[The "ES3" does exist, as an older model.]

There have been different Model Names/Numberings in Europe, but even then EP3 corresponds probably to ES6 (not to ES3) which itself now is beeing replaced by ES7 (at least in Europe)... but I am not 100% sure.

The EP3 is a reduced specification version of the ES6, with sound and features similar to that of the ES4.

Kind regards,

Sorry, I actually meant the EP3. Somehow I can never keep the ES and EP lines straight.
