Other than technical differences like the escapement and wood in the keys in nwx,
Is the graded hammer keyboard (p255/ ydp163)much different FEELING than the nwx ( p515/ clp645)
When playing?

I think that they are balanced differently which makes them feel different. I prefer the NWX for this reason, and I am not biased since I was skeptic about the improvement of the NW before trying.

I found a local mom & pop shop that's an official Yamaha dealer. They expect to get some in late October. Personally, I'm going to wait until they've been in the field a few months.

We are just sold out until the next batch arrives.. extremely popular digital piano! I've played it extensively.. it is AWESOME. Anyone who wants to play one but can't, go play a CLP-645 instead. Same action, 99% same sounds.. bring your headphones, same experience.


Cheers!

My friend Pete Calandra in New Paltz, NY posted a short FB video, iPhone quality, of the P-515. Kind of in a Chick-ish (Corea) mood. cool thumb

If you read the comments, I asked how it compares to his CP4. He likes it better.

Aw sorry. I don't understand FB links and videos. Are you on FB Jeff ?

I'll try again, I had copied and pasted from my KC post. See if this one works:
