Just ran across this thread. Within the last month I purchased an SP6 (with the Medeli K6 action). I am quite impressed with the action, and the overall board.

I can very quickly switch from a fairly recent Privia (that notably had good 'piano' action and response), to the SP6, and to my KAWAI Grand quite easily and happily.
The SP6 has 10 velocity curves to choose from in order to get your preferred key to finger/touch response

Between the 3, I'm spending almost all of my time on the SP6. This being my first Kurzweil, (I've had some 12 or so other variety of boards; Roland, Korg, Yamaha, Rhodes, etc.) - I can say that I'm quite impressed with the Kurzweil sound quality - Pianos, Rhodes, Organs, etc.

I'm not sure about the 'mechanics' of what's under the keys, but the sound and feeling/touch response to me is '...a lot of stars....'

DaveBB, I'm glad you like it. I really like mine, it also makes a good controller. That handy little 'dest' button makes plugging in a module simple, its color coded for local, external & both.

Hi SP 6 owners. Been trying a Roland DS88 for playing out, like the feel of the action, and usually a Roland fan. Haven't downloaded any online sounds, but find the mono piano 1 best for rock band use, though not connecting to this or other sounds with as much control as previous Roland RD's. Would the SP6 be worth ordering (none in stores by me)? Never owned a Kurzweil, played a few over the years, always seemed on the light side (coming from acoustic piano background).
Thanks.

Off-hand, I'd say key advantages of the SP6 over the DS88 would be: better organ, better MIDI (i.e. to integrate external sounds from an iPhone/iPad, laptop, additional module/keyboard), it's smaller/lighter, better VA synth, more effects capabilities (32 "effects units"), more capacity for storing user patches (Roland gives you 256 user Patches, 128 Performances; Kurz is 1024 user Programs, 1024 Multis). DS88 advantages include being able to load custom samples, being able to split/layer up to 16 sounds (vs. 4 on the SP6)
