I understand better now...I posted before seeing your first reply.

Sorry if I seemed a bit strong armed...I'm very passionate about music and keyboards, and I tend to get rather involved. blush

I like the NP-30 for what it is too...that's why I bought one. Certainly you can't go wrong, and the piano is rugged and reliable, and the piano sound itself is pretty well identical to the one in the P-85...my friend's kids put hers through the wringer and it hasn't missed a note.

I think you'll be more than satisfied with it...I like the layering feature and piano with strings is simply inspiring.
