Have you played a CLP-795gp Texasbear? I really wanted a good digital in a grand cabinet and wanted desperately to love that piano but couldn't get along with its action. I experienced pain in both hands after playing 2 or 3 songs; my hands have never hurt like that before, even after 3-4 hours on an acoustic grand.

Djvu10, no I have not played any of the new digital pianos such as the CLP-795GP. I am not a professional concert musician like many of the other forum members. I only have 2 hours or less for practice each day, and my main focus of the week is Sunday morning church service. Hopefully a new digital piano will allow me some practice time during the day. It would be so nice to be able to walk over to my new CLP-795GP (or whatever I decide on) after a stressful conference call and sit down to play and relieve some stress!

The CLP-765GP is a closer competitor, albeit likely to be more expensive than the DG30.

I am considering Kawai models, but they aren’t at the top of my list due to the feature set. I am really looking foward to the feature set of the Clavinova due to the apps that are available for it.

Just out of curiosity, may I ask which features of the Clavinova you require, and which apps you intend to use?

Kind regards,

I've played piano at least weekly for 30+ years, but mostly on non-weighted keyboards or lower end grands. I'm not opposed to a hybrid, but just about any modern digital piano will be a step up from what I am accustomed to playing.

I believe the DG-30 is the same as a CN3_? Not a CA. It has a lot of options and voices. Regarding the Silent Grands, they will have all those features you mention. At least the Kawai's do if you buy the latest model and probably the Yamaha's also. That's an expensive option though.

Umm I stand corrected. I mis-remembered and should have done a quick look before posting. The __39 is indeed a CN39, not CA39. And I believe that this is the unit on which the DG30 is based.

I mean even GrandTouch-S is better than DG-30's action... GrandTouch is obviously better than DG-30 action and is heavy but most will probably get used to it. I actually prefer heavy actions.


Finally bought the P515

How are you quantifying "better"?

Please note that I've yet to play any instruments that utilise the new GrandTouch-S action (either the plastic version or the plastic-wood version).

Kind regards,
