I have the YDP142 and I'm at grade 2 level. I like it and don't really have any problems when I play on my teacher's acoustic upright during lessons. I haven't played the PX750 so sorry I can't give a comparison.

Thanks for the comments from both of you! The end of the Scherzo was a part I knew I was going to mess up, a couple of the measures are just almost unplayable. The symphonic first movement is certainly a work-out, and I think the least characteristi
