God, that guy is tedious!

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing

I agree. All folded actions suffer from the same shortcomings. They are a compromise and some feel better than others. Actions I prefer others might not, and vice versa. Picking the Casio out like this, and comparing its fidelity and nuance of touch to that needed by a concert or advanced pianist is just dumb.

PS I don't own a Casio or have an links to the company crazy

It has nothing to do with the action being folded.

MORE of this. I support teardown videos 100%

Take everything apart. Look at the soundboards, read off some ICs they're using, see who's nickle and diming us on cheap amplifiers and trash capacitors.

This type of information is alot more useful than the subjective descriptions and opinions on the rather ubiquitously pointless feature sets of DPs.

I have to agree with these teardown videos. It’s value added. Something I wouldn’t or couldn’t do myself. I actually learned some stuff in this video. Much better than all the other review videos that do nothing but rehash a DP’ specs and prices. I can find answers like that by reading the specs myself. Reviewing requires an opinion. Without an opinion, it’s not a “review”. It’s an “overview”.
