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)!!

3 weeks ago [from 2019/11/01]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.
2 weeks ago [from 2019/11/01]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.
