hi, I'm just about to buy a digital piano, and from the reviews I read, the yamaha p85/p90 are the best for an average price of 600-800€

which one is the most interesting ?
from what I see, the only difference : the p90 has 25 sounds where the p85 has only 10, is there something else ?

thats my first digital so I'd like to chose the best one
(I already noticed that the p90 is impossible to find in stores, where the p85 is still sold)

You should post this in the digital forum. That being said, I purchased a P85 a few months ago and find it excellent for practicing when visiting my daughter.
