I don't know nayone who regretted buying the 515. It seemed poor on trills when I first bought it, but now, nearly a year later, its so much better. There may be better actions out there, but we're talikng the racer`s edge here, and much more dosh.

Acoustic is acoustic, digital cannot match it.
The second best choice if you cannot have an acoustic piano for some reason, whether it is a grand piano or an upright, is to find a digital piano which translates your playing into sound most accurately.

This is incorrect. P-515 features Virtual Resonance Modeling. Kawai employs similar sound processing.

No, JoeT, it is correct.

This forum used to be full of digital piano expertise.

Now it's just newbies registering to lecture others.

As a classical pianist, once you reached a certain level, you go for an acoustic grand piano. Nothing else. And once you're past the beginner stage, you get at least an acoustic upright.

Digital pianos have a completely different application than acoustic pianos and that should define whether you buy one or the other, not playing level. Both types of pianos come in many different versions from small and portable to full size grand pianos.

I bought it and returned it. The key action was much too heavy for me. So not everyone is happy with the P515

Hey Joe! You must habitually vaccilate between the North and South poles of our revered planet . . .

My registration date appears to be 2 years earlier than yours, does it make me more senior on this forum?
OMG, newbies lecturing advanced adult hobbyists who learnt piano as kids on an acoustic piano and played since then, to buy a grand and move it around with you as they move for work smile
