I was looking at the Roland kr103 and the store told me 2500$ not including tax and 50$ moving it to my place.

Is that a good price?

I was wondering if anyone recommend any of the other roland models. The kr models are old series correct? Aren't they beginning to be replace by some other model?

Kotomi, I am looking as well. The HP-207 dates back to 2007 but appears to be a favored unit for cabinet-type systems (non-stage). The LX-10 was released in 2009. The difference between the two, of course, is the upgraded cabinet and speakers. I do not see a lot of difference in keyboard action from the specs or sounds. The LX-10's cabinet is nice and the extra 2 speakers are an improvement in speaker location. Since I don't have my hands on one yet, I can't speak to any real differences. There is a significant difference in MSRP however.

The warranty is 5 years parts and 1 year labor on both. Kawai has 5 years for both. So I am looking very strongly at the CA91. I hope to buy within the next month or so.

Hello! Everyone Can somebody help me?

I'm new here and I want to learn some things about the Digital Piano.

I plan to purchase an old model of Roland its used/2nd hand; Roland Digital Piano HP800, and I was wondering about its specs:

What is its Max polyphony?

Are the keys dynamic(touch sensitive)?

The keys; is it wood covered in plastic? or pure key plastic?

Does the Sustain Pedal perform the "half damper effect"?

Is the sound brilliant or acceptable?

The guy at the store said that the 2700 new kr103 includes tax and shipping some nice headphones and midi floppies. I didn't like that he was insisting on that the model was new. I thought that the model was not being made anymore. Can some one clarify? Is it being discontinued in the US?
