Looks like the Casio PX 150 now has a street price of $499 instead of $599?

Periodically, Quantum Leap East West products are sold for less. Sweetwater uses the "Price Drop" while others might say Special Price or offer no explanation, just the lower price. Judging by the consistent prices everywhere you might conclude it is permanent. Yet all of those products have returned to the higher figures everywhere. I wonder if $499 is truly permanent.

o0Ampy0o, I have read your post, here:

_____________________________________________________

If you see a piano as a piano and you see a digital piano as a digital piano - any piano is good to learn on and play so when I see digital pianos in music stores at 499 and 999 - and some 9999 - I shake my head because these days 499 and 999 is too much for 88 weighed keys.

300 seems like the right price. I guess it will take a little more time.

From another Michael_99 post:
"that is why I like my Yamaha P95 because it is dirt cheap at 600 and does the job that I expect it to do"

So 600$ is cheap but 499$ is too much for DP grin

I wouldn't mind a poet, if not all (ALL !) the previous post and responses are quotes in each message.

Oh..., mind you:

"Toddy, I have read your post, here:

The difference is that Michael 99 is a poet."

"_________, I have read your post here."

This is a very cool tag line in my opinion - much, much better than 'Beam me up Scotty' or "The force is with you" or 'The name is Bond, James Bond' or 'Play it Sam' any of that commercial clap trap. As I said: a poet.

Although, I do wonder at the change of opinion from $600 being a great buy to now only $300 for a dp.

You are absolutely correct. Michael is a very different person. However he does say things that make you raise your eyebrows or are inconsistent with each other. He also seldom answers when people speak to him. I think those traits are what was being referred to.

He's very much in earnest, though, and not intending to give offense from all I can tell.

I think we are all on edge just a little around here because we had a tough summer from a trolling point of view. Things are calming down now and I think we will all adjust back.

To the OP: I find it amazing the Casio can yet again lower the price on this piano. When people on really tight budgets come around, this piano is practically going to leap out as a first recommendation. Between this, the P105, and Kawai's new offering I'm very pleased with what's happening at the budget end of the DP spectrum.

Never said Michael_99 is a troll (sorry Michael if I offended you in any way); only thing is that I don't understand the necessity to quote the whole thread as it unfolds; making each post longer and longer and longer and only on the bottom line a tag with new text. A little mystic poetry is fine with me.

Anyway - I'm out; see you somewhere later this year, when the new gears starts to pop up. Cheers, J

It's $500 at Amazon, B&H, and other retailers and those places only show MAP. It looks like it's for good.

anotherscott,

Yes, now it will be a direct feature to feature decision between the two. They are not really that similar though. Each has a different form of several features. People may notice that the Casio has more polyphony, whether it matters or not.


ONfrank,

I would not bet on it. Everyone who carried the QL-EW line showed reduced prices for a period of time without calling it a sale. It looked like the street price had been permanently adjusted/reduced while it was something in between a sale and a permanent price reduction, I guess. Until I see a statement from Casio or Mike Martin confirms it I would not take the price for granted.

This PRICEDROP would have been so nice had it been a month ago -_-

O well no worries.

I still like the ghs action in any case.

Random question guys. Is anyone going to release a vpc1 competitor?

Those approved touch curves I'm sure does wonders to the playability of the software pianos

This is my only access to the internet so I don't know anything about facebook except that it exits.

I am concerned when I post that someone might take something out of context. In the real world, you write a letter and then attach the letter that you wish to comment on which shows the date, the person that wrote the post/letter and the person it was sent to - so TO FROM (the body) and the date it was written - but to me - threads are all over the place. So that is how I have to do it. People that know me say I am not remotely like other people. Also for my whole life, I don't get headaches, but people who know me say I always cause them to get a headache after knowing me for 15 minutes. I would caution people maybe they should not read my posts, because it might cause them to get a headache and I understand that and I am okay with people wishing not to read my posts. I am not offended and completely understand why.

cheers,

TBH the other casios are going down too. The PX850 started at £899 when it first came out.

It then went to £850 (some still marked at this price) then £799, with a bundle of accessories.

Its now £780 and £760 in some places.

(On your screen, as you composed your response, it would look exactly the same to you as always, except for the addition of small quote indicators in brackets.)

If you want to take it one step further, once the Quote section is generated, you could actually delete (cut or backspace over) any of the original quote that is actually not relevant to the point you are making in response, which will make the final post more concise and more clear. But... one step at a time...

You are not the first person on the internet. You don't have to figure out how posting should work. The correct way to read and respond to forum posts is well-established and used by the majority of people here. Coming up with your own hair-brained method and refusing to change even after so many people point out the problems it causes only serves to confuse and annoy.

The fact that you are annoying causes people to think you are also a troll. By the way, being annoying isn't cute, funny, or humanizing. It's just off-putting.

If are not offended when people tell you that you are an obstinate irritation, whether in the forum or in real life, then you are very confused and you need to do some serious reflection.

humblebeginnerpianoplayers says: In a word, yes, you are probably right.

My eyesight is okay/average but I can't reasily read the quoted material because of the darker background. In the quote option - it puts it into a scroll mode and that is unacceptable to me.

I must see and have at all times the post in its entirety - no exception.

The reason people get a headache when they are dealing with me is that being dyslexic, I have extreme difficulty remembering or doing tasks if they are in a particular order of process. I never knew that my whole life until - when I turned 50 something and for the first time in my life I had to work with another person/people. Up to that point in my life, I had my own office from 21 to 50ish and so I did everything that worked the only way I knew how. But when I had to work with other people, team work, I realized and the other people soon realized that I would get confused and not do at all well if they set something up for me to do. So people realzied I would have to make adjustiments to the process or task. So now I tell people why I can't do something and why. For instance, when playing the piano, I have to figure how my brain likes to learn things so it isn't staightforward but experiece helps. And to add to that a few years ago I had a stroke and so I can count the measures - no problem but I have a terrible time counting change - but I can do with extra time.

When the doctors took my history, they would shake their head and ask how did you manage to do the things you did - my job and other things - and remember this is before I had my stroke they are talking about. And I said that fortunately I am very determined. Like if it takes the average person to play presto on the piano 3 to 5 years - I expect that it will take me 10 years - but no problem. I will not let anything get in my way. Maybe what my grade 4 teacher told my parents and my parents told me - was the best thing they told me. That I was mentally challenged and would not amount to anything or go beyond grade 8. My brother was straight A's -but became an alcoholic and drug addictive and eventually killed himself at 54.

humblebeginnerpianoplayer says: For me there is no easier or better way. For me I have to do what works. When I used to write an essay in English, I would write 8 or 10 pages of fullscap paper when everybody else in the room would write a half a page and get the same mark. But I am not complaining. My life has been very interesting and rewarding even though I am a very simple person.

humblebeginnerpianoplayer says: I do listen, I am not easily offended. I will try anything or do anying because it is all about learning and you never stop learning until the end. And I don't quit - the rest of the world may quit but I won't. It is not my nature.

cheers till another time,

The darker background of the quote only appears after your message is posted. It does not appear while you are composing your response.

Regardless of whether you hit QUOTE or hit REPLY (where you manually insert the quote yourself), the scroll situation is the same. The typing area will have a scroll bar whenever it contains more text than will fit. This behavior does not depend on whether you hit QUOTE or REPLY, it is identical in either case.

You might find it easier if you hit QUOTE, then select the entire block of text and cut-and-paste it into a separate place for editing (your word processor program or a new empty email message, for example) where it is very easy to make the typing area as big as you want (to avoid scrolling), and then when you're done writing, cut-and-paste your entire response back into the reply box on the web page.

Really, I cannot see why we are making a point of order about this. In my own replies, I frequently use italics rather than the official quote function - though these days, I usually do use quote. Sometimes a small snippet, for example, doesn't seem to warrant the heavy-handedness of the quote box.

But no one has told me off about it yet. It is possibly annoying, but I think that a little individuality balanced against conformity is fine. And if the one is pitted against the other, then individuality must win, in my opinion. The more people insist on conformity, the less I like it, and the more bloody minded I'll become. At which point, Hoosten, we have a problem.

....but it's difficult to judge, really. Anarchy is certainly not the way. It's the most unfair and, ultimately, the cruelest of systems, so I quite understand the necessity to 'go along with the majority' which is a tenet of democracy. It's just that awful word 'conformist'.......

You are not the first person on the internet. You don't have to figure out how posting should work. The correct way to read and respond to forum posts is well-established and used by the majority of people here. Coming up with your own hair-brained method and refusing to change even after so many people point out the problems it causes only serves to confuse and annoy.

The fact that you are annoying causes people to think you are also a troll. By the way, being annoying isn't cute, funny, or humanizing. It's just off-putting.

People that know me say I am not remotely like other people. Also for my whole life, I don't get headaches, but people who know me say I always cause them to get a headache after knowing me for 15 minutes. I would caution people maybe they should not read my posts, because it might cause them to get a headache and I understand that and I am okay with people wishing not to read my posts. I am not offended and completely understand why.


If are not offended when people tell you that you are an obstinate irritation, whether in the forum or in real life, then you are very confused and you need to do some serious reflection.


Gordon Bennett, we are intolerant aren`t we? Is there any need for this? The guy is not a troll.

Perhaps The bottom line is the PX-150 was lowered in price because the P-105 is outselling it in certain markets? For $599 most people would be more inclined to purchase a P105.

Yamaha has excellent distribution and reputation. Many people don't do very thorough research before buying and so they go with the easiest to find and most recognisable. In digital pianos, the salient name is Yamaha and has been for many years. That kind of inertia isn't easy to fight (in musical instruments...some other markets are quicker to react).

For the reason, Casio needs to undercut them, so I think maybe you are right. Of course, Casio has distribution through big box retailers...I was just playing a PX135 at Best Buy today. Wish they had a PX150.

And once again Casio-hating-Possum is jumping on an opportunity to diss Casio and inform everyone of what he could not possibly know aside from his own opinion.

Does this forum have a moderator who can sift out all of the off-topic Michael 99 banter, place it in a new thread and restore the original theme of this thread?

I feel a need to ask you people to show Michael some grace. He has his share of problems. Please show him an extra helping of grace.


I'm impressed that Casio is doing this. They're really fighting hard for that share of the market.
Personally, I can't be too impressed with the lower end Yamaha's. I've owned two of them. Wasn't impressed. They have so many different...well...everythings in keyboards. It's confusing. Yamaha can do anything right. I have a great respect for any acoustic instrument with the Yamaha name. First class stuff.
