The Casio GP-310 is definitely better than the CLP-645


What is "better"?

The key action (playability).

D'ya think so? Others may not. I tried that on the 510; the keys were very slippy. Best non-slip keys are from Roland. I'm very unanimous about that.

Even though for me action>sound, I think GP-310 lacks bluetooth, and nowadays it's a must-have (IMHO)

The Casio GP series are living room pianos. Bluetooth doesn't have a strong fit in that market.

Then you may need two pairs of headphones, one for the DP and another for any device you are listening to at the same time - v.gr. if you are following a tutorial on YT.

Would a $20 mixer with two inputs do the job?

I guess so, but too many wires to play

The Casio GP-310 is definitely better than the CLP-645, however note that the keys are quite slippery so if the player's fingers sweat much I would wait a couple of months and go with a Kawai CA79 instead.


For sweaty fingers Roland/Kawai > Casio.

I believe Bluetooth is very useful, especially when a piano is placed in the living room, where it's often preferable to interact with the instrument without connecting additional cables.

Kind regards,

+1.

Also, Bluetooth Midi is becoming really useful - Piano Marvel on iPad works with Bluetooth midi now.
