From the description of the changes, it sounds like the action was in bad shape before, and has been properly regulated now. There is supposed to be some resistance when the key is pressed, and more as the repetition lever and let-off come into play.

i would go for a 2nd hand upright. I have been in the same position as you are now, and bought a cheap yamahan YDP162 (also 2nd hand). After a few month, you get so bored of the sounds that come with it. In the meanwhile i looked for a 2nd hand, and

Regarding your point / question on LX15 versus HP605, have you considered this as choosing between what for now seems to be a final version of Roland's established mostly-sampled DP technology and a first version of Roland's fully sampled DP technolo

Cutestpuppie, there is no battery inside the ES100, nor any other Kawai digital piano currently in production. The instrument is powered by an AC adaptor which connects to a wall socket. User adjusted settings and songs are stored to non-volatile me
