Well this is total nonsense. There's no way EQ can in any tangible sense affect the length of the sustain. Sounds like someone at Bonners, who doesn't know what they're talking about, has just consulted someone else at Bonners, who also doesn't know what they're talking about.

They're not "someone." They are called salespeople!

I got the impression that this guy was not a Casio fan. Also, the Bonners person who agreed with me about the lack of volume on the 500's also thought that it had by far the best action. So there you go. Only thing to do is to try them out. The small incremental numbering would suggest no massive changes, but they could still be significant.

I think they have old stock to get rid of.

EQ adjustments cannot affect the length of sustain that a sample has, however it's certainly possible to extend the length of sustain using software parameters - perhaps this is what the Bonners representative was referring to?

Kind regards,

Most likely, but that's pretty big mistake to make. Anyway as usual one has to test it in person and play something slow smile

Let us hear the feedback from a person who bought the Casio hybrid digital grand piano GP-510 and who has had before the Casio GP-500. From "L. v. Beethoven - Sonata No. 14, Op. 27 no. 2, movement 3 - Kateryna Titova on GP-510 - YouTube" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMt...wyuzpjmgkjuav51w03c010c.1572564644063059

I've had my new Casio GP510 for a few days now and I really love it. I had the GP500 before but swapped it for an expensive, brand new, Yamaha C1X grand fitted with a silent system because I wanted a 'real' piano. I actually preferred the Casio so after much anguish I sold the Yamaha and I've gone back to another Casio. In my opinion the GP510 has a better base than a small acoustic grand piano (even an expensive one) it's also easier to play at a sensible volume level without disturbing people several rooms away.

In your opinion, what are the differences between the GP-500 and the GP-510 on various aspects: piano sound, touch, etc.?

@Michael Not much difference really. Perhaps a slightly improved bass sound and slightly easier to play very quietly but as I no longer have the 500 to compare it to it's hard to be sure. For both versions the sound on the headphones is excellent and the sound on the piano's speakers is less good but not bad.
