X-stands suck!

Our Quik Lok WS550 stand is quite nice though.

I wish more manufacturers made something like this (from Yamaha) but maybe foldable while attached:

I used to think Z stands were great until I had to move one around. Setup / breakdown are too much trouble, and the Z sections are bulky to transport. And side to side legroom can be somewhat limited.

The KS7150 could be a bit better. I'm not sure I like they way they incorporated the 2nd tier mounting, and it seems kind of flimsy when the base is set to the widest settings. The height going a bit lower would help with higher keys like the P105. Aluminum rather than steel would help the weight issue.

It seems everything about DPs comes down to a Sofie's choice.

That Yamaha looks very flimsy, like it would sway from side to side or at least constantly move (shake or wiggle?) as you played. If you are looking for design ideas, or rather, the place to look for design ideas where sturdy, light and portable is the goal Plein Air painting gear might be the ticket. Some palette/easels use tripods that are either adapted from or the actual camera gear. Of course a wide slap of keyboard presents different challenges but concepts used elsewhere could be utilized. I think instrument stand manufacturers are looking to improve other instrument stands when they could tap into advances in other areas for good ideas.

Just got mine yesterday. I totally love it. The white color feels different!

The power button is a bit slow to turn off. I think I had to press it twice to turn off the piano. When I turn it on, it takes a few seconds to hear the sound. Is it because the piano is new?

You have to hold the power button for a couple of seconds to turn it off. I believe it's a safety to keep you from accidentally turning it off should you "play" it or otherwise brush against it.

It`s on standby when you turn it off, so to speak . . . takes long enough to come back on even from that . . .

We bought a P105, mainly as a portable for my granddaughter, and were reasonably happy with it. Soon after buying the P105 out came the Kawai ES100. I recently had a chance to play the P105 and the ES100 side by side, the ES100 was superior in touch and piano sound, but I'll wait now until the ES101 comes out in a year or two before we buy one.
