I didn't check but I think it sounds similar as the epiano in the FP90. I find the looping bothersome, its frequency is adjustable but I prefer a less baroque epiano in Others (33 I think).

I don't shop new with digital pianos. However, I would certainly recommend upgrading when the FP90X becomes available used at a reasonable price, as the standard FP90 will depreciate a lot when the FP100 finally comes out. Best to keep one step behind and keep your loses to £150 per upgrade rather than waiting and losing £500.

What about in terms of performance/quality of the two pianos- is the fp90x dramatically better?

You would need to assess that for yourself. As I understand it, the sound system comes out of the LX708, which is an upgrade. Whether you like that sound, that will depend on you and your tastes. I believe there are some nice uprades regarding USB midi, most of what's already been discussed.

No one has any idea. I don’t believe any are in stock in any country yet. All we have is the marketing spiel from Roland and ‘special access preview’ videos.

As in the software, or the whole physical wattage ?

Actually I think you're right - I've just listened to some FP90 demos, and the EPs sound similar to the FP90X. It's hard to be certain, because all the demos I heard played quickly and/or staccato, but on the odd occasion, yes, I think I could hear the looping.

The FP-90X spec’s claim 3-track recording, and if true a nice upgrade from the prior model’s 1-track.
