Hello, I am in search of digital piano for me and my son (actually we don't want one, we have an acoustic upriught), but for silent practice our family members need a digital.

I found a 2nd hand Roland HP605 for about 1500-1600€. I have seen a HP507 leave for 2100€ in store last week, right before my nose. The point is I don't find that much reviews on youtube of a HP605 model, not from Bonners, not from Merrit piano's, not from...

Was this a model to avoid? or is 1500€ a good price for such a 2nd hand?

BR, Johan

At 1500€ you can just buy a brand new "beyond entry level" digital piano and as this is for "silent practice" you wouldn't benefit from the fancier speaker systems in models like HP605 and HP507.

There is of course some digital piano shortage currently, so there's that issue limiting your options.

The HP605 was about 2600€ when still in production, I guess and still has modern tech, so maybe is 1500€ is reasonable. And you won't get a brand new Roland with their PHA-50 action at that price.

Well. The last FP90 units sell for 1490 euros and the FP90x is promised ato cost 1660 euros (not in stock yet). Those isare brand new PHA-50 keyboards... So unless you are keen on the cabinet style, 1500 euros is too much for a used hp605.

The HP704 is cabinet with PHA-50 keyboard, and in Spain you can find it around 1800-1900 euros. I suppose that prices will be similar in Belgium.
If you can increase your budget 300-400 euros, I think is a no brainer. Digital pianos are instruments, but also and fundamentally electronics. Would you buy a second hand 3 years old smartphone?
