Any ideas?

I'm just returning to classical piano. I grew up playing on a grand, so I'm used to the 88-keys. I'm looking for a DP I can start practicing on. I have a very low budget, no more than $300, so I'm pretty much only going through second-hand channels.

I found the CDP-100 and the P70 both in an affordable range. Which should I take? I mainly concerned with the action feeling realistic, and internal speakers so I don't have to fuss about connecting anything other than a pedal and possible headphones at times.

Thanks.

Assuming both pianos are in good condition and all the keys and switches are in working order, the P70 would be the better choice (not sure if this has internal speakers). The CDP 100 would be OK if the Yamaha isn't in good working order, although the sound quality isn't as good and the action may be noisy.

P70 is in near perfect condition, with power supply and pedal. A year old, used only 20 times.

The CDP-100 has been used, minor wear. Power supply, no pedal, no manual, no stand. Basically, older.

P70 it is.

EDIT: They both have internal speakers.
