Very good price / performance ratio

05.07.2016
Processing:
Even during assembly, one is aware of the excellent quality of Yamaha:
The piano is very good! And when assembling, all the screws fit into the holes provided - you can not expect that with many pieces of furniture.

Keyboard:
Very good playing feeling, the keyboard is wonderful - more you do not have to say.

Sound:
The piano voices sound very realistic and give a lot!
Of the loudspeakers, I have expected a little more at the maximum volume - but these are nevertheless perfectly adequate for private use.

Features:
A piano should be for playing the piano. This brings with it many functions, which I myself do not use. Probably you can also think of a lot here, as is often seen in cheap devices, but I do not think this is necessary.

Service:
If one were to go back to all functions, I can imagine that the operation is actually a bit complicated, since one must remember all possible key combinations. For the simplest functions, however, the operation is intuitive and understandable - so full score.

Summary:
I think that this is the best price performance ratio within the Yamaha Digital Pianos, as this more affordable Arius model already has built-in technology, which is also available in the more expensive Clavinova models.
Examples include the better GH3 keyboard, as well as more powerful loudspeakers.
Various sound enhancements are also available in this model.

For all those who want to have a lot of piano for little money this model should be the right choice - clear purchase recommendation!

Good alternative to a real piano

30.11.2016
I have played an acoustic piano for several years and I consider that this digital piano is a good alternative to a real piano, both for price and the possibility of using it on a floor without disturbing the neighbors or the rest of the family if you sleep.
Aesthetically the model B (black) has a sober and elegant finish.
Sound quality is acceptably achieved, although it is obviously far from the sound of a real piano, as small speakers can not reproduce the sound of the soundboard of an acoustic piano with a much larger surface area.
The feeling of weight and inertia of the keys, which makes it easier for the interpreter to transmit expressiveness when playing, and which is not found on simple digital keyboards, is quite well achieved and I consider that it is a remarkable point.
As for the usability of other options, a counterpart to aesthetic sobriety is that it has no screen and includes few buttons for direct control of functions, so it is necessary to use combinations of buttons and keys, having to resort to the paper guide To know the right combination for each function. However, the basics: turn on / off, volume control, change voice (instrument) or record yes can be accessed with direct buttons.
I have not yet had a chance to test MIDI connectivity.

In relation to the shipment: it took a week to arrive in Vigo, the transporters only deliver at street level, so it is up to one to manage to put in a box of more than 60 kg and one meter and a half in length.
In my case I requested the transport tracking number to know where the shipment was going, but the package arrived before I was sent that number.

As for the assembly, the pieces come well packed in the box, the assembly takes about an hour and for some phases of the assembly two people are necessary.

In short, for piano lovers I consider it a good compromise between an acoustic piano and a basic electronic keyboard.
