Ok so they cost more than the $1500 price point that you seem to have set for yourself. Remember You will not be buying a new DP every 6 months. The one that you will buy will stay with you for at least 5 years. So if you need to spend an extra $300-$500 to get something significantly better than the Korg C1/G1 then so be it. There's a reason why the Korgs are on sale at these prices. If that's more than you want or are able to spend, then get the Yamaha P-125 or the Roland FP-30.

The Korgs may not be on sale, it could be just marketing. They are about the same price in the UK (if you can directly compare using currency converter) and they aren't listed as being on sale here. Not saying the op should buy the Korg because I simply haven't a clue how they compare with any of the others.

I recently purchased the Yamaha P-515 but returned it.

I liked everything about it ….. except …. the sound.

I now am going back to the ES8.

If you can get the ES8 for close to the price of the P-515 I would suggest you do that.

With all due respect, but sound and action are the very cornerstone of subjectiveness when it comes to DPs. What may seem like mediocre/crap to one may seem godsend to another...

Granted, a beginner may not appreciate at first when they buy a piano whether it's good or not, but the more they play, the more they explore and the more they hear they eventually do start to appreciate a good thing or not as the case may be (I am a prime example of that as I started on a P115 & at first I was all like "cool" and by 6-9 months I was all like "this is a piece of...").

As said before, sound can always be changed with VSTs over MIDI - action cannot....

I might just buy the P515 use it’s integrated sounds, then later purchase a VST for a better sound. smile
