Thanks in advance! Member Posts: I'd be inclined to drop the C33 most likely, just that technology moves on and that is a model. I'd have to think there would be more offered in later models in some way, if not just feature sets and or finer layering. Yamaha may have the finer touch of the keys. So everything is a compromise with digital, pick your compromise set that fits your needs best and go buy it! It's almost like cameras these days. Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.
Can you name some? I tried the CP33 and the P today in a store. My subjective conclusions so far: - None of them, not even the most expensive ones, impresses me particularly when it comes to the grand piano sound, at least through the Sennheiser HD I brought with me. Of course, the more expensive ones sound better than the cheaper ones, and better than the Casio PX I used to own. But I concluded that the sound itself is immensely important for me, since it doesn't give anything close to a real piano anyway.
I could live with either Yamaha or Roland or maybe even the better Casio ones. Also, the CP33 sounded as good as any of them, even the more expensive ones.
At least to my ears. Quote from: iansinclair on September 16, , PM. Quote from: pianoplunker on September 21, , AM. With headphones, it sounds like a grand. Without headphones, sound is a bit "hard". Impossible to play with a good legato in digitals isnt true. I dont feel any diference from my Bluthner acoustic grand. Also I can achieve all the dynamics. Left pedal isnt so good. I dont feel diferences in key touch.
Actually, Yamaha digitals are incedibly good. For practice any mid-range or better digital instrument is fine. They probably don't do that because it's not one I own a Yamaha CLP myself, which has the same action mechanism, but regular plastic-coated keys instead of synthetic ivory which is more comfortable. You can't beat the sound of a well-maintained acoustic piano, but for reasons of practicality a digital instrument is unbeatable: practice all night at low volume or over headphones, hook it to your computer and use it as a MIDI keyboard, or even insert an USB stick with WAV recordings taken from a Music Minus One CD and play entire piano concerti without having to use a separate sound source for the orchestra, etc.
And, not unimportant, it will save you at least 70 quid every year for having it tuned, and a few every few years for having the action or the felt on the hammer tips sorted out.

I have tried out different types of pianos over the years and can say that there are some high end digital pianos that will sound even better than some lower end acoustic ones. You should try out digital pianos from Roland, Yamaha or Casio.
You could be pretty surprised. Quote from: gyzzzmo on October 12, , AM. I love the touch and the sound, especially when used headphone. There are big diffrences i feel, compared to my yamaha DgxThe Concert Artist has been Kawai’s flagship digital series for the last 12 years. With the amount of acoustic piano materials and mechanisms used in this digital line up, the CA series falls into more of a Hybrid digital piano category setting them apart from the majority of the digital market.
