I have zero piano experience, but I've always wanted to learn to play one.
After watching and reading countless reviews over the past couple of weeks, I've decided to purchase either the Kawai ES110 or the Yamaha P-125. A couple of local stores have the P-125 in stock, and I was able to play around with it and compare it to the Casio PX-S1000. Unfortunately the Kawai isn't in stock in my area, but the reviews have been so good that I'm almost willing to buy one without actually playing it.
The connectivity thing and the zillions of apps/BT/USB/MIDI/etc has kind of thrown me for a loop. I'm an old guy. I have a decent desktop rig but no tablets or other mobile devices. For initially learning I'd like to use a book and accompanying audio (Faber's or something similar). All I want to do is connect the piano to my pc and be able to hear both the instrument and mp3s through headphones. Will I be able to do that on the ES110 with a MIDI-USB cable?
Many apologies for such a basic question, but I can be a bit of a knuckle-dragger when it comes to tech stuff. I haven't found a thing online that answers my question. Thanks for any advice.
