I am looking to dump my Roland RD-800. I've never liked the piano sound. I don't know how to describe what about the sound I dislike. I miss the piano sound of my old Roland FP3 (here's a good example of the piano sound I remember (first :44): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdQTnhqZ1Ww).

Can anyone recommend an alternative that meets the following criteria:

1. Stock piano sound similar to the FP3 in the clip above
2. Good sample reproductions of...
Rhodes
Wurlitzer
B3
3. relatively portable for gigs
4. 88 key
5. <$2500

I'm not a big fan of Roland sounds, but maybe the RD 2000 will have something to tickle your ear. It has a vast array of voices.
