You are welcome.

Just so you know, I use a mixer. But I run a CD player and soon to be second module through it. Actually, I also run the DVD player through it and use the powered speakers as our home theater system:) Anyway, the mixer is handy for routing all of those different inputs to the speakers.

I also wanted to note that the speakers I mentioned are very flat. They don't sweeten up the signal at all, so you may want to keep that in mind.

Ryan

I play several different Yamaha digital pianos and the best advise I can give is to play them through a well balanced stereo PA system. No other type of amplification system even comes close to the quality of a good stereo PA. I have two systems that I use for gigging. One is a huge DJ type system with an 8 channel amp with 400 watts per side. The other is a portable Peavey PA system. It packs up into a 60 lb. wheeled box that has everything you need for playing small gigs or at home. I tried keyboard amps, bass amps and guitar amps but nothing did it for me till I got a stereo PA. Try it, you'll like it!

I would appreciate if someone could help me choosing the best portable digital piano, according to my needs.
Iím an amateur player who studied classical piano for 5 years, a long time ago. Iím looking for an instrument that should have an 88 notes hammer action keyboard with a heavier feel in the lower range and a lighter feel in the high range, for a touch that is just like that of an acoustic piano, and fine piano sounds Ė Grand piano, piano, electric piano, vibraphone. It should also have pedal inputs, headphones outlets and incorporated speakers. All the rest is superfluous for me.
Thank you very much.

German,

For keyboards/digital piano give the Yamaha MSP5(A)'s a try.I own a P-250 piano and tried many of the available active monitors here in Belgium :Fostex PM1, Phonic P8A, Event TR8...
I ended up with the Yamaha's because they make my piano sound really good... and they are only 5 inch speakers.They don't have the deepest (subwoofer) bas but the basses they can handle are tight, dynamic and nice sounding.I know for shure that the Yamaha 5 inch woofer can handle bas response much better than many 8 inchers in the same pricerange. Good luck with your choice !

castroman,

I think a Yamaha P-120 is a great value if you like that typical Yamaha sound.Because you are classical trained i think you need the graded Yamaha keys.
The Roland RD170 has a nice grand piano sound but i think the keys are too light for a trained pianist and has no inbuild speakers.Good luck with your choice !

The RD170 does NOT have progressively weighted keys. As far as Roland (in that price range) goes, look at the FP2 (as was stated in castroman's "My Perfect Instrument!" thread).
