Anyway, interesting to note the varying warranty periods. Where I live, it's only 12 months warranty if I buy from the official Yamaha store.

I speak a little German:

In a nutshell, he talks about the sound being miles ahead of the previous generation; so good that you will have a hard time telling it apart from the real thing.

“Oh, and that action”, he says at some point. Even something as subtle as the escapement is there, and the repetition rate is on par with a concert grand’s action.

He plays the ‘Mozart’ piano and swears by god that Mozart himself is in the room smiling, for he is so happy (he said it less formally; I’m just paraphrasing).

I assembled the 645 and it was probably the easiest digital I ever put together. Just had my hubby help me when I attached the keyboard. It's super easy with very clear instructions.

Your level of german is "fantastic" :-) actually, he didn't praise the instruments at all in this way - he is mainly comparing the instruments with each other.
I did feel though that the 735 sounded very thin, much thinner than my 635 at home. The sound recording was the limiting factor here, I think, but it was clear the 745 and 775 have more bass (could not distinguish much between the 745 and 775).

You are, of course, right. Pete14 is just kidding. :-)

I've just watched the video above. It's only now that I learnt (or, let's say, realized) that, of this selection, only the CLP-775's GrandTouch keyboard uses weighted, graded keys. To be honest, I had thought that that's a very common feature in the world of digital pianos in this price range... Is it, in fact, not?

They all use weighted and graded keys. The gradation is different bettween 735/745 and 775. Whereas the grading is made by section (1-2 octaves ?) on the lower models and starting with the 775 the grading is fully linear.

recently i was playing the 745 clp piano, i'm a beginner. Compare it between a p515 and a yamaha b1. I felt it lighter than the p515 but little and very similar to the b1, I am a beginner, obviously the sensation is different on the acoustic piano, it will be for the scapement, excuse my English, and the sound is beautiful, they are had clp 775 but i can not play it

Hey, you are, of course, right. Thanks for enlightening me! I simply ignored the fact that the reviewer (and the specs) talked about linear grading.

To be quite honest, I'm not that sure if it is much of a selling point. Probably most beginners to intermediate can't really tell the difference. The other thing that I'm not entirely convinced about is the half pedalling. Or linear pedal modeling of the 775 vs its little brothers. Does it really make a difference ? Pedalling is a skill in all itself that I have yet to master. Let alone half-pedalling !

This demo movie was posted earlier, but I dismissed its significance as a realistic sound sample because of the gigantic speakers behind the piano. However, it has since been confirmed that the sound demo (which begins at 3:18) was directly recorded from the line-in. As far as I know, it is the only movie on YouTube right now that is recorded this way. Therefore, it is probably the best example of the what the new samples actually sound like.

While it doesn't strike me as yet being quite as good as Garritan CFX VST, it's really impressive. I'm pretty happy with the sound quality, especially on the CFX.

I think you'll find pretty much all the online demos were recorded from the line outs. Ambient recordings (i.e., mics picking up the piano's own speakers or separate monitors/amps) are rare.

It still amazes me that people can't instantaneously tell when they listen what kind of recording it is, it's just so obvious when it's line outs or speakers.

And yes, the 785 is a beautiful piece of furniture. On the same day I purchased my 745 my friend purchased the 785.

Both are a credit to Yamaha.

Thought I'd best introduce myself. First post here! eeek! :-)

I'm the 'friend' that Burkie is talking about. My wife and I have purchased ( but waiting for the arrival - mid to late October ) of the CPL-785.

My wife has been playing for more than 30+ years - and me. Well, have been playing for a long time, but have never read music, learnt by ear - BUT, now ( I turn 50 next year ), I've just started to learn to how to read music.

The future is bright and I'm hoping that this piano will be with us for many MANY years. 12 months ago (pre-COVID) we tried, a multitude of digital pianos. The sound of the Yamaha I thought was fantastic, I'd tried the Roland as well and found the key action pretty light.

However, both my wife and I loved the overall experience of the Yamaha.

Once we receive the unit, will definitely post on what we think.

The future is bright. Thanks for reading.

Apologies if posted before, but I came across this review and thought it was pretty detailed for the action on the CLP 735/745 along with other details about the tech and the pianos themselves.

A question non related specifically to the 700 series.

Do you guys know if it's possible to edit and save custom voices/layers/Splits?!
Or do i need to do manually every time i turn the piano on?!

Do the Clp 700s support bidirectional usb audio?

looking at a firmware update on the clp 645 it says:

https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/clp645_firm.html

V1.0x → V2.01
New features
Smart Pianist V2.0 App is now supported.
Transmitting and receiving Audio data via USB cable (USB Audio) is now supported.


does this mean that I can send USB audio from my computer as well as receive USB audio and record on it?
