Between the Yamaha CLP and the CVP the sound is the same but the CVP has many extra non-piano related features and costs more. For a fixed price point you can buy farther up the CLP line then the CVP line.

Deciding who has the best sound really comes down to preference. Roland is different then Yamaha not better or worse. But each company has better sound than what is in these pianos.

Roland has recently applied their "supernatural" technology to acoustic piano sounds and it is available in the RD700GX and the HP307. And Yamaha just realeased their CP1 which seems to contain Yamaha's best sound to date.
