Hi Aidan, did you actually get to try the ES7 ? I wonder how you regard the keybed of the Px350 with respect to the Kawai. Also how the speakers measure up and how the EP's and organs are in comparisson, so please keep us posted when I arrives !

Hi JFP. No, I haven't tried the ES7. To make that short story longer, I had an idea to replace my Kronos 61/Stage 2 rig with just a Kronos 88 (as I'm using the sounds mostly from that synth these days in my two bands). Well, it arrived and I could barely lift the thing on to the stand. Yes, the Kronos 88's size makes that more difficult than maybe the ES7 would be but basically, it convinced me that my days of gigging with 20kg+ keyboards are over. Sorry, James!

I'm pretty confident the PX-350 will work out for me. I lead a choir which has a PX-310 and I borrowed that for a couple of solo piano gigs this summer. Paired with my lightweight EV ZXA-1 monitor (and with the piano's own speakers still on), it made for a perfectly good and involving experience - sometimes, in the practicality of gigging, good enough is good enough, you know? The 350 is a couple of generations on from that, so I'm pretty sure it should do the job for me.

I should add that I really don't have any interest in the PX-350's EP or organ capabilities, as in any situations where those sounds are called for, I'd be using the Kronos, albeit in the former case playing them from the PX-350.

I don't really care if you guys think it looks fine. I just said it was there, I didn't say the keyboard was bad.

Greetings all - this is my first post! Just ordered my PX-150 with stand and pedalboard, and am now waiting anxiously for delivery sometime next week.

I had many years of classical training in my formative years, am lucky enough to have the ability to play by ear (but it hurts my head!) but have become rather rusty because the kids complain they can't hear the TV when I play my acoustic.

Hence the need for a digital piano for my den and a set of headphones.

Looked at both the PX-150 and the P-105, played them at GC several times and sat on the fence for quite a while. But reviews here and elsewhere, Mike Martin's obvious knowledge and passion for his products, and ultimately the opinion of mine and my family's ears (unanimous by the way) clinched the deal. Since I am a piano player, touch and sound are paramount - rhythm, voices and accompaniments less so.

So I can't wait...

BTW, any advice on headphones (I have a fairly restricted budget now having bought the piano :-)

Recovering pianist - rusty but improving!

I have this one. Of course there are better ones out there, but these work fine for me.
