So after seeing this winter namm I just bought a rd700nx (used but "like-new") for 2100usd, Ive been patiently waiting for almost a year to buy a dp, I thought Id wait and see what this winter brought...aside from the VPC1 which genuinely does seem like a great piano only midi board, for only 300 more the 700nx seems like its the best thing going in the price range, they also seem to hold their value well, so even if something amazing comes out in the next year I think I can recoup the majority of the purchase. I bummed namm wasnt what I hoped but Im pretty stoked for a great deal on what I consider to be one of the best dp's out at this time. Thanks for all the valuable input in helping this decision PW!
