For the ES-110 Bluetooth implementation, does it permit:

1. Input of uTube videos or other iPad apps?

2. Bluetooth MIDI (use 100 as a controller)? (I assume latency so probably not very useful).

Thanks...

Nope. There should be a mention of "audio" in the Bluetooth section of the specifications. There's not.

Yep. And the latency is small, so it might not be a huge problem. Depends on what you are trying to play and how sensitive you are to minor latencies, I guess.

------> Thanks for the info. That is also truly unfortunate, and a serious omission (along with no audio input) in my opinion. I apparently will need to purchase and schlep a small mixer and small amp to compensate (actually already have one, but both use electricity too. Since I'm currently playing in the yard, that's 3 things to plug in). The Casio PXS-3000 does all of this (and on batteries if needed), but the keybed isn't very good. It's really great to be able to play along with a video with a custom mix of internal and external sounds, and to hear them right from the piano whilst playing. But the Kawai has THAT keybed.... (and the piano sample is great, too, but the keybed is the main attraction for me here).

Do the speakers make any sound if the ES-110 is placed on a table? That's what I'm currently using.... Thanks...

Yes, I believe so.

The ES110's speakers do not have an aversion to tables, at least not that I am aware of.

I recall the ES110 even has a speaker EQ setting for table. Though some recommend turning it off.
Slabs with down-firing speakers often have aversion to thick carpets or other sound-reflection-damping materials underneath wink
