Looks like the Casio PX 150 now has a street price of $499 instead of $599?

Periodically, Quantum Leap East West products are sold for less. Sweetwater uses the "Price Drop" while others might say Special Price or offer no explanation, just the lower price. Judging by the consistent prices everywhere you might conclude it is permanent. Yet all of those products have returned to the higher figures everywhere. I wonder if $499 is truly permanent.

o0Ampy0o, I have read your post, here:

_____________________________________________________

If you see a piano as a piano and you see a digital piano as a digital piano - any piano is good to learn on and play so when I see digital pianos in music stores at 499 and 999 - and some 9999 - I shake my head because these days 499 and 999 is too much for 88 weighed keys.

300 seems like the right price. I guess it will take a little more time.

The difference is that Michael 99 is a poet.

From another Michael_99 post:
"that is why I like my Yamaha P95 because it is dirt cheap at 600 and does the job that I expect it to do"

So 600$ is cheap but 499$ is too much for DP grin

I wouldn't mind a poet, if not all (ALL !) the previous post and responses are quotes in each message.

Oh..., mind you:

"Toddy, I have read your post, here:

The difference is that Michael 99 is a poet."

And all the rest. Whatever , I am going to sign off anyway until NAMM or a little bit before. Not much news in DP land till then. Unfortunately. Bey...

"_________, I have read your post here."

This is a very cool tag line in my opinion - much, much better than 'Beam me up Scotty' or "The force is with you" or 'The name is Bond, James Bond' or 'Play it Sam' any of that commercial clap trap. As I said: a poet.

Although, I do wonder at the change of opinion from $600 being a great buy to now only $300 for a dp.

You are absolutely correct. Michael is a very different person. However he does say things that make you raise your eyebrows or are inconsistent with each other. He also seldom answers when people speak to him. I think those traits are what was being referred to.

He's very much in earnest, though, and not intending to give offense from all I can tell.

I think we are all on edge just a little around here because we had a tough summer from a trolling point of view. Things are calming down now and I think we will all adjust back.

To the OP: I find it amazing the Casio can yet again lower the price on this piano. When people on really tight budgets come around, this piano is practically going to leap out as a first recommendation. Between this, the P105, and Kawai's new offering I'm very pleased with what's happening at the budget end of the DP spectrum.

It is much more competitive with the Yamaha P35 now.

Never said Michael_99 is a troll (sorry Michael if I offended you in any way); only thing is that I don't understand the necessity to quote the whole thread as it unfolds; making each post longer and longer and longer and only on the bottom line a tag with new text. A little mystic poetry is fine with me.

Anyway - I'm out; see you somewhere later this year, when the new gears starts to pop up. Cheers, J

It's $500 at Amazon, B&H, and other retailers and those places only show MAP. It looks like it's for good.

anotherscott,

Yes, now it will be a direct feature to feature decision between the two. They are not really that similar though. Each has a different form of several features. People may notice that the Casio has more polyphony, whether it matters or not.


ONfrank,

I would not bet on it. Everyone who carried the QL-EW line showed reduced prices for a period of time without calling it a sale. It looked like the street price had been permanently adjusted/reduced while it was something in between a sale and a permanent price reduction, I guess. Until I see a statement from Casio or Mike Martin confirms it I would not take the price for granted.

This PRICEDROP would have been so nice had it been a month ago -_-

O well no worries.

I still like the ghs action in any case.

Random question guys. Is anyone going to release a vpc1 competitor?

Those approved touch curves I'm sure does wonders to the playability of the software pianos

JFP, I have read your post, here:

____________________________________________

This is my only access to the internet so I don't know anything about facebook except that it exits.

I am concerned when I post that someone might take something out of context. In the real world, you write a letter and then attach the letter that you wish to comment on which shows the date, the person that wrote the post/letter and the person it was sent to - so TO FROM (the body) and the date it was written - but to me - threads are all over the place. So that is how I have to do it. People that know me say I am not remotely like other people. Also for my whole life, I don't get headaches, but people who know me say I always cause them to get a headache after knowing me for 15 minutes. I would caution people maybe they should not read my posts, because it might cause them to get a headache and I understand that and I am okay with people wishing not to read my posts. I am not offended and completely understand why.

cheers,

TBH the other casios are going down too. The PX850 started at £899 when it first came out.

It then went to £850 (some still marked at this price) then £799, with a bundle of accessories.

Its now £780 and £760 in some places.
