We can measure the placement of everything in the universe, but the action of of the Casio hybrids are just not satisfying.

I traveled by train to a music store that had those models and for home use for professional players they weren't satisfying.

If I were forced to play one in a restaurant, it would have been acceptable. For home use as a professional, it was not acceptable.

I really like wanted to like those models but I couldn't. I'm sure there are those with different standards and those models would be acceptable..

It really is too bad that posts cannot be edited within 15 minutes of posting. I'm writing this on a smart phone and it can be tedious.

It used to be that the edit time was quite lengthy. I don't know who (or why) it was changed. Frankly I don't know why there's any timeout on edits. Why should I be prevented from editing a post from ten years ago?

There have been contributors who have substantially altered the contents of their posts and then it makes following posts that responded to their original posts look odd or irrelevant in some way. It certainly upset the flow of threads when that happened. A reader who might later be researching a potential topic or product of interest could make no sense of it at all in those circumstances.

It is a nuisance when one discovers an error or typo in one's own posts and cannot edit them but on balance I think the current time window is about right.

Are hybrid trains more likely to get derailed?

There was a poster here a few years ago who removed all of their posts.

For the naysayers who put their heads in the sand and claim loudly but falsely that the Casio Hybrid digital grand pianos (GP-500, GP-400, GP-300; latest ones: GP-510, GP-310) are not hybrid digital grand pianos, I already said in length all I had to say about why the Casio Hybrid digital grand pianos (GP-500, GP-400, GP-300; latest ones: GP-510, GP-310) are indeed fully hybrid digital grand pianos like the Yamaha AvantGrand and the Kawai Novus NV10 hybrid digital grand pianos are. Moreover, this position is supported not only by Casio, but also by myself for the detailed reasons that I gave, and by many people who are rational, unbiased, and without any agenda of any kind.

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. Here is a very good pianist who even preferred buying a Casio hybrid digital grand piano GP-510 than using an acoustic Yamaha C1X grand fitted with a silent system!! This story puts into perspective all the various very condescending and dubious claims made by a few "experts" concerning the quality of the piano sounds and the quality of the hybrid grand piano keyboard action and touch that are used on the Casio Hybrid digital grand pianos (GP-500, GP-400, GP-300; latest ones: GP-510, GP-310)!!
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.

Mike..

What I said in the other thread. We are all glad you love your Casio. We are happy for you. Now go enjoy it and stop with the dissertations and arguing. If you like it who cares whether it is called a hybrid or not?

To quote Commander Scott.. "If my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon."

Now let's stop with all the cross posting.
