Emissary, would you be able to move up to the CLP 330? I wouldn’t get a CLP320 because I don’t think it’s better than the YDP-160. You have to use the Keys for other voices that aren’t Grand Piano (Correct me if I’m wrong.)
The CLP330 is almost the same as the CLP340 (smaller speakers, non ivory keys, 3 sampling vs. 4. At our level, I don’t think these are important). For your purpose and budget, if you can get this one, it’d be great.
The HP-2xx series are probably out of the question, but take a look at some Kawai if you can. The CE200 is in the YDP price range. I have heard its key action is very good. There doesn’t seem any Kawai near me, if there are, I’d definitely give it a go.
A few prices from our “Prices Paid” threads for your reference. Missing info (Polish etc...) weren't disclose in those posts. Unfortunately, we can only use these as reference. They have gone up a lot during the last year or so. Good luck with your purchase.
