Has anyone with piano knowledge (of which I have none) had a chance to play and compare the Casio PX-300 to the Yamaha P60??
QUESTIONS:
What are the differences?
Is the P60 worth the extra $$$?

Thanks!!

hmmm... I don't know... someone probably have a
good answer..

Anyway I orginally wanted to buy px100, but
later decided to buy p60.
Went to a Guitar Center store and end up buying
p120 for $1000

Satisfied, though spent twice as much money...

if you post this at the digital forum you would get more answers.

P60 and PX100 both have only 32 polyphony, which would be a drawback, but Yamaha is generally considered making better digital pianos than Casio. the Yamaha's P series GH key action is also generally considered better than Casio's. although i felt PX100's action is not bad as i tried it little bit at BestBuy. so, if i were you, i'd choose Yamaha. but if you have little more money to spend, buy a P90/120, assuming piano action/sound is what you want.

sorry, i thought you said px100 but actually you are talking about px300, which might be much better than px100 (more polyphony i guess too). i guess also the action on both would be quite similar. so, if you want to save some money on buying a piano, PX300 might not be a bad choice.

When my Technics broke a few weeks ago, I decided to get another (cheaper) digital piano. I tried the Casio PX-100 at Sam's Club and Sam Ash, but it seemed a little juvenile somehow. The P60 seemed much, much better, in terms of sound and even moreso, action. But then I started reading about this "polyphony thing" online, and wondered if the P60 would be a problem. What solved it for me is when I looked back at the specs for my Technics and discovered that it too had exactly 32 polyphony. And I never, ever noticed any problem with it on the Technics, so I decided to get the P60 (just last week!). So far I'm very happy with it, and can't believe how much cheaper it is than the Technics Ensemble (although not near as many whizbang features that I never used). I play four Chopin nocturnes (lots of notes and lots of pedalling), and never had any notes drop out - or at least couldn't tell it! So unless you're playing things far in advance of this, I wouldn't even worry about the 32 number. That's my experience anyway.
