DGX-660

I once played the DGX-660 at a friend’s house and I loved it. It is the perfect piano to learn, play and share music. The piano sounds just like an acoustic piano thanks to the GHS weighted action. It comes with a Piano Room setting where one can personalize the kind of music they play by choosing different acoustic and piano settings. I particularly loved the fact that a microphone can be connected and recording is very easy with the inbuilt USB audio recorder. This piano brings fun into the learning process.

P-115

This is a compact and stylish piano ideal for beginners and professionals alike. It is fitted with Pure CF sound engine which sounds great. The weighted keys add feeling to the music while the speakers are loud enough. A unique feature is the on board drum rhythms and several voice sparkles. I particularly love the club that gives a crisp reverberation that is perfect for jazz performances. My students love Yamaha P115 because of the iOS app that allows easy control of the piano.

P-255

I actually own one and I love its sound. Though the price is high, this piano is a work of art and it is worth even more than the price tag. If you are an experienced pianist this is the right digital piano to get. You will love the weighted synthetic ivory keys, inbuilt recording studio, iOS app for more control and a myriad of other features. It is portable and you can customize the sound for different environments. When performing at jazz concerts, the sound boost makes the volume loud enough with no need for amplification. Since I bought the P225 a few months ago I have not used any other piano in my live performances. It is just perfect.

P-71

This is a cheap alternative that I encourage my students to purchase. It is portable and has all the 88 keys of the piano. They keys are weighted so the right skill is obtained from the very beginning. With 10 digital sampling options users can experiment with different sounds as they learn. The sound quality this piano gives is good but if you a professional you will be better off with a more advanced piano.

P-45

This piano is just another name for P-71, there are no functional differences between them.
