Which is better especially in the similarity of the key touch in the Yamaha accoustic grand piano?

N1X. It has a real Yamaha acoustic grand action.

These two statements don't fit together. If "similarity of key touch to acoustic grand" is most important, then the N1X is better, because its action (which mostly defines the touch) isn't "similar" to an acoustic, it *is* an acoustic action. So it doesn't make sense to ask this question of "which one is most similar in touch?", if you then say "but regardless of the real action" in one of them.

I'm tempted to agree with JoBert.

But Karim's second sentence is not a sentence:
but regardless of the real action and considering the light and easy touch of yamaha accoustic grand piano like this one that I use in most of my recitals

It's just a dangling phrase. So I don't know what to make of it.

I took it to mean "which piano feels most like an acoustic grand?"

It doesn't necessarily follow that the N1 feels more like actually playing an acoustic.

Karim, the N1 is a great choice. Using an acoustic action in a digital works very well.

BTW you can put a link to your youtube channel in your signature so it will show up in all of your posts.

Excuse me but I don't have the two models in my country to try them!!!!! Yamaha dealer in Cairo does not have them.
That's why I am wondering!! So if I decided to buy one of them then I will be obliged to buy it blindly!! Through my dealer from another country!!!!! . Maybe I expressed what I mean wrongly. What I mean is in yamaha accoustic grand piano the feel of the key when my finger hits it I find easy and light and it doesn't need force to play it so I can play the Yamaha accoustic grand piano for many hours without tiring my hands on the contrary of some yamaha digital pianos that have heavy key feel and needs some sort of struggling with them. This is what I mean the feel not the real action.

You will enjoy the N1X much more.

To the only advantages of the 695 are:
1. It looks like a grand piano, so people who don't know digital pianos (and who dont see the red power light) - i.e. 99% of the population - will assume it is an acoustic grand.
2. The speakers are louder, so you can play it in a large restaurant or small concert hall.

In short: the N1X is designed to please the player, whereas the 695 is designed to please the audience.

Karim, the 685/695 touch is rather controversial. It's not advisable to order it unseen, as some people say it feels very unnatural. Other people like it a lot.

The N1X has an action that I think almost everyone agrees is great. I can't see how you'll be disappointed.

If it were me, I'd buy the N1X.

Many thanks to you all. I really appreciate appreciate your great help. I was in two minds but really your opinions encouraged me a lot to go for the n1x and not to order the clp 695 gp because the feel of it's keys is far from the feel of any yamaha accoustic grand piano keys. I am really grateful. Thanks a lot

Hi mac. How are you. What I mean is it's not a must that the weight of the keys in the real action in yamaha digital pianos to be the same like the weight of the keys in yamaha accoustic grand pianos. So the feel and the force needed is different.

Well you've got your answer about which piano to get from a piano forum. Now you just need to find a bank robbers forum for advice on how to get the money.
