I would be a bit surprised if the P-155 was replaced so soon. I'd expect replacements for CP-33 and CP-300 sometime soon, though. Gettin' a little long in the tooth.

The CP33 and CP300 have effectively been replaced to a degree by the CP50 and CP5. Probably won't see many more professional stage pianos with built in speakers like the CP300 since the trend is lighter, more compact. The P155 ought to be updated or replaced.

Makes sense to me. No CP-300. Though I think they could replace the CP-33. Something lighter, simpler, cheaper than Cp-50.

Don't get me wrong. I'd like to see a replacement for the P155. It just doesn't seem that old to me, for a digital piano.

I would like them to combine the two. A P155 that also had the MIDI controller functions of the CP33 would be a nice board. I do like the idea of a piano with speakers that also functions as a decent controller, and Yamaha hasn't done that since the ridiculously heavy CP300. If this theoretical P155/CP33 hybrid could use the NW-Stage action, it would be just about perfect for me... except it would probably still weigh too much!

I'm just going by personal preference. I played a P155 at a friends house and I fell in love with it. I never actually owned one, every time I start saving for one, I get into financial troubles and end up starting from scratch again. I'm still using a Casio WK-3800, which makes me a sad panda.

I'll get it eventually though :p (hopefully)

Don't you mean Liberace ? Maybe its Clayderman and Liberace's love child board ...

Seriously could you get more tasteless ? Unfortunately the answer is yes if you look at some of Fazoli's abortions ...

I didn't think Roland had any new DP's at NAMM the F120 and LX-15 they are presenting are not exactly a secret ....

I guessed there will be no new Kawai pianos (although the lack of new ES is a little bit strange), I guessed the new Roland HP-series. Maybe time to raise my bet wink It's hours until we understand if there will be new Yamaha CP-series... My stake is 100 стотинки laugh

Hmmm...an entry-level Arius in ebony polish?

Well, I expect more announcements will be made over the next few days.

Seems I'm out 100 стотинки indeed. I am sure you'll all agree to donate them in the global cause for eradicating the beer thirst, starting with myself today laugh

Seems also that I'll stick to my current plan for replacing my CA63 with a CP5 smile

Ok, so a RD500 series from Roland, a new Arius from Yamaha.

What's the new/updated console from Kawai? We should know by now, right?
