Yamaha CVP609GP or Newer CLP

I am having to replace my baby grand (analogue piano) with something smaller due to downsizing.

I have been looking at the Yamaha Digital Grands. I used to have an upright keyboard which was fun as well the being a piano.

I can see they have just created the 809 and a new series of the top of the range CVP, but also have the CLPs, which are more of a pure piano at a much more affordable cost.

Comparisons are hard to find, but I have seen some that say the 809 is not much better in functions that the 709, and likewise the 709, noy much more than the 609.

I found a CVP609GP online in really good condition at about the same price as a ne CLP. The 809CVP is out of my league.

So I mess around and play for fun, could do with learning again, as 30 years ago, I played to a moderate standard. Would love to learn to be able to improvise and mess around with some better left hand than I do.

So the question is go for a 2014 Yamaha CVP609GP with all the frills, or a newer CLP with less frills???? (but a Bosendorfer voice!!)

One other question I did have was can you do a lot of the CVP stuff on the CLPs just with an ipad plugged in, and if so, then maybe its better to have a model 5 years newer with the ipad.

All recommendations and discussion eagerly awaited.

Thanks in advance.

I've been researching this as well. From what I have learned, I don't think the CVP-609GP would be as good as the new CLP-795GP. The 795GP has wireless Bluetooth for audio and MIDI, as well as over 500 instrument voices. The CVP series has better controls on the instrument panel for arrangement features, but I think the wireless iPad apps available for the 795GP make up for that. Let me know what you think about it!

That is what I am thinking.

If it’s playing along with an iTunes track,
Extracting chords from it.
Then I think your right.

Not sure about left hand chord sequences and backing tracks based on keyboard input, say in the left hand. I would be interested to understand that.

I would be interested to hear from someone who know these backwards as to whether it’s clp plus iPad or older cvp!!!
