#1311555 - 11/24/09 02:03 PM Casio Privia 130 or 730 Can't decide... HELP!

I should have bought a DP about a few weeks ago, but I can't decide between the PX130 or the PX730.

I can get the PX 130 with matching stand, 3 pedals, stool and headphones cheaper than the PX730 on it's own.
England, UK prices:
PX130 full set = Approx £610
PX730 on its own = £630

Only think thats got me stuck is the BEAUTIFUL looks of the 730, and its speakers have more bass and depth than the 130.

Help appreciated... persuade me
Thanks
Terri

You get the pedals and stand allready included in the PX 730's design.
I'd personally go with the 730

The px-730 has a much better sound due to the better speakers, i was in the same position as you about a week ago, but now i've decided to save up a little more and get the 830 (just because i've been told that the "ivory feel" keys are worth the extra £90 over the px-730).

The only thing that the px-130 has is portability, so unless you're gonna be moving it around everyday, go for the px-730 (which like the guy above said, has an inbuilt stand w/ pedals).

Happy shopping!

If you go for the PX-series, go for the PX-830, not the PX-730. You want better speakers (and possible long term quality).
