Hello and HELP help ,
I have been on the acoustic forum because I saw a Henry Miller 4’ 7” baby grand at Costco Road Show with the QRS serenade system (for $9000) and thought… hey, I might want to take up piano and this one seems kinda cool... and even if I don’t “really” ever play I can listen to the likes of George Gershwin do his thing (making this a very expensive CD). Well, someone posted a link for a Casio PX-300 for $600 bucks… a far cry from the HM I was looking at and the subsequent search for a good starting level piano that will give me the most bang-for-the-buck (everything from Young Chang to August Forster to Estonia). Please do not think me a snob as an acoustic was my first choice… I never even considered a digital and do not even know how a digital varies from a keyboard (if at all). Could you guys/gals suggest a good starting digital/keyboard that has the closest feel, action and sound of an acoustic piano?? Since I do not even know if this is something I will want to pursue long-term, this just might be the best investment.

I would like to spend less than $1500

Thanks!!!!
smile

Good suggestion from Rodney. Plus on the P120 you have 50 or so songs you can just listen to that are built in. However, you cannot load in more of your choice. Only more expensive digitals will do that. Sorry, no Gershwin included in the P120's repertoire.
