Welcome to the forum!

I think a logical thing, if going again to buy an slab, could be the Yamaha P-515.

But I went from a DGX660 (which could be said similar piano-wise to P125 and so cousin of P120) to a Kawai VPC1 controller plus several VSTs and an acoustic Yamaha U3H

So... You need to decide by yourself wink

First post here as well. Have enjoyed my Yamaha P120 since 2004. Awaiting delivery of a Casio GP-510. Will write more later once I have some time with it…

After the P-120 I searched a lot for better actions. I tried all the new Yamahas but was very dissapointed about the action and the durability. So many years I thought the 120 was the better one. One day I tried the VPC-1 in a store and was blown away. So for some years now I am a proud owner of the VPC. For P120 users I can only say that the action of the VPC is a little lighter than the P120. That may surprise some here, because many here find the VPC too hard. But it is still a lot more agile than the really heavy P 120.

I found the P-121 action (don't know how it compares to P-120 though) heavy and did not like the action or dynamics at all. I went to a Roland HP704 and a Kawai ES920. Happy with both.

I had a Yamaha P60 up until earlier this year when I switched it for my P515 - could not be happier unless I got a Yamaha CFX or CX3 acoustic

I'm very happy with my relatively cheap P-121. I have the touch set to soft and it responds nicely.
The sounds of the P-121 and P-125 are however quite limited. The main piano is quite OK but the samples are a bit short in length and there is not much difference in the variations. I mainly plug it into an iPhone to play other pianos and instruments and the ease of doing this (one USB cord for both midi and audio) is awesome.

Coming from the P-125, I was going for the P-515, but ultimately decided to spend more and go for the Clavinova 745.

The P515 was the obvious choice for me if I needed to move it around, but the idea of having a furniture with better overall structure than the L-515 stand, and way better speakers, closed the deal. I'd actually enjoy the action of something in between the 515 (which is close to an upright piano without damper pedal) and the 745 (more like a grand with damper pedal, a tiny bit light for my taste).

In the end, I'm quite happy with my decision, been playing a lot!

I had the P-120 for many years until 2016. I was having problems using it, and the keys started to stick and not play well. As such, I bought the Roland FP-30, and I really enjoy playing this keyboard. I also bought the Focusrite 2i2 audio interface and the Pianoteq Standard DAW software with many virtual pianos such as the Steinway Model D and the Petrof 284 Mistral add-on instrument packs. I really like how the keys feel more natural than the P-120. I can use modern software with it. I also use the iPad app called "Forscore," where I can put my sheet music on it without having to use books.

I hope in the future when my income will increase after I am planning to go onto college for the Radiology Technician program with a new career. Once I graduate from the program, pass the licensure testing, and find new employment that I can purchase a better piano that I will really be happy to own and enjoy.
