To understand why P-515 is better than CLP-635 check out Yamaha's website and compare CLP-635 with CLP-645. P-515 closely mirrors the CLP-645 (i.e., has a better action than CLP-635). Personally I think P-515 is better still because it also has the 'Studio Grand' voice, which the CLP-645 lacks.

Another product to consider would be the Kawai ES8 on its dedicated stand and pedal unit. It's the same in principle as the P-515. It has Kawai's second best sound engine in it and is a very rounded product; a bit of a sweet spot in my opinion.

In fact in your shoes that is the decision I would be making; Kawai ES8 vs Yamaha P-515.

Best of luck!


The OP mentions aesthetics as a priority. That would eliminate the P-515 in my opinion -- it may be many things (most of which are good), but pretty isn't one of them. It would eliminate any of the portables slapped onto a thin OEM stand, or a portable stand...so that would also take the ES8 off the table.


The P-515 with its transparent music stand fits well into my living room - the latter isn't baroque styled either. The properly finished OEM stand and the pedal board is a must though, third party studio racks and pedals dangling on cables aren't really suitable here.

Ty 👍😁

Once she saw the cost of p515 vs clp 635/645, it was an easy decision. I just have to hide the wires with OEM stand and pedals

Got it. OEM stand + pedals is my plan as well. Thanks

The pedal option wires are well hidden with bundled cable guides. However for the power supply you are on your own.
