Hello,

I saw Roland HPi-7s and liked it. Dealer is asking $5400 (delivered). Do any of you know/owns HPi-7s ? I am new to Piano/Music. Please let me know your views/suggestions.

Thank you for the help!

The Hpi-7s is a great choice. If you like you should buy it. Some on here will tell you that you don't need that much or nice of a piano. You might hear that you can get something as good or close for a lot $$$. But Roland is excellent quality sound wise, touch wise, and construction wise. You will not regret the HPi-7s. Good luck.

If you want a piano with a lot of extra features (rhythms, accompaniment, on-screen scores, extra tones, etc.), than the HPi7s is great. It's as good as Yamaha CVP instruments costing much more. However, if you're looking for mostly a piano (plus a few extra sounds like organ and strings), than the HP-207 has basically the same piano features at a cheaper cost. The extra features on the HPi7S are worth paying more for--but only for some people, i.e. people who are interested in them and will use them.

Thank you for the reply ! I like the learning feature a lot. Do any of you guys own or used the HPi7s. I will really appreciate any feedback on this DP.

This seems to sell for around $4800
in some areas, so you're apparently
giving the salesman about a $600
bonus on top of his regular
commission. This is a fine
instrument, quite a marvel, a
piano that can teach you how to
play the piano. But, unless
money is no object, this might
not be the best choice if you've
never played a note before.

I also liked the HP-207 also and dealer is offering for $3200. The best part of HPi-7s is the learning feature. I don't have to totally depend on the instructor for learning. As I am new to music world/Piano , not able to decide which DP go for it. As far as the melody/tone I like the Roland compared to Yamaha. HPi7s you can hook up external monitor which I think may be be really helpful.

If any of you guys own HPi-7s please post your opinion.

Thanks again for all the help !!

I would not recommend an HP 207
if you've never played a note
before. This is, of course, a fine
instrument, essentially a concert
grand for about $3000. But
just as a beginner doesn't need
a $100,000 concert grand to learn
on, you don't really need an
HP 207 to learn. I'd recommend
something like the Casio PX 800
or M-Audio DCP 200, at $900 each.
A concert pianist or conservatory
student could do all his practicing
on either and not miss a beat.
