Good alternative to a real piano

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.

Hobby instrument with a nice look

Floh, 15.12.2016
To me: I wanted to resume my hobby piano from the youth and it had to be a digital piano so I can play also when the children sleep. :-) Some time ago, I was a very talented amateur, and I already played with the idea of ??studying the piano. My ability has since then declined noticeably, but I still trust myself a textual report of the new piano.

First of all,

+ The Digitalpiano looks really neat. Beautiful wood veneer, noble cover, no ugly display, ... absolutely living-room-compatible and makes a robust impression.

+ The keyboard is really excellent. Stop and mechanics are, of course, tastes, I myself just found for practicing a minimal heavier attack more comfortable. The feeling here is closer to a Yamaha- than on a Steinway wing, which I however quite positive. I would have no problem teaching my son to a good level on this keyboard before it has to be a real piano. After some self-experiments, I find that there is (for my taste) in this price class no comparable keyboard. Great class.

+ The piano sounds (just the first) with a neat headphone are very good. For a noticeably better one you have to dig deeper into the bag. The e-piano sound is good, harpsichord and vibraphone sound on almost all digital pianos, the other sounds are in my ears rather gimmicks for the children than to take seriously.

What I noticed is negative:

- The built-in speakers (operation without headphones) are at best mediocre. At lower volumes still acceptable, the mid-range speakers are predominant and the sound quickly becomes muddy and unclean. For pop pieces or Christmas party accompaniment, this is all right, but a peppy Chopin I have broken off after a page ... After all, it will be quite neat, louder than a small wing certainly.

- A small display would have been practical for some things. This would probably disturb the optics, but it is difficult to see if the piano is at all on (tiny red LED), let alone what sound is set. That would have been worth the loss of beauty ...

Neutral: The piano is quite heavy. For me, no problem, because it is not actually transported, but you should at least know.

Overall: I will keep the part in any case. The sound on headphones is very good, and the keyboard is really outstanding for this price class. The muddy sound of the speakers I will not use much, and even if: As bad as the reading in the review now is really not, I have since quite high claims.
