How do you feel about your CN-33? I want to buy one, is it a good piano for a beginner?
I was a beginner of six months when I bought mine two years ago. I agree with bluebilly, it was the best in its price range, and competitive with some of the Rolands 'above' it (HP302, 305, 307).
I've had no issues or problems with mine at all. Two reports now, with bluebilly's, of notes sounding odd but I have not personally noticed although I have elderly ears.
The keyboard is quiet, soft (which not everyone likes, but I do), and very good for control and repetition.The C4 keys are looser now than say C2 or C7 but no clicking.
I did explore using pianoteq at one stage, enjoyed the diversion and went back to playing one of the inbuilt voices. I've used different inbuilt voices over the time, including layering two piano tones together, a mellow, a twangy and now the main voice. Over headphones the expressiveness is very good, perhaps not so much with the speakers, YMMV.
I like to play modern music, Einaudi, Tiersen and the like, but along the way have learnt some classical to go with theory and hand independence, including small repertoire from Bach, Purcell, Clementi, Beethoven, Satie and so on. The CN33 has not held me back and the dynamic range and keyboard are perfectly fine.
Play one for yourself and see. It's not perfect, but probably still one of the best in its the price range. (I just love the FP7F over headphones but not speakers, but it's more expensive, and the keyboard is hard on the hands).
Under orders (and that's the only reason) I'm now looking for a 'better looking cabinet' DP, since it's located in the main living room. But that's OK since it gives me budget approval for something like a LX15, CS9, NU1 or CUP3
