Hi.
I'm new here on the forum.
First of all I'm sorry for my language wink
Few days ago I got the idea to realise my old dreams.
I never had opoortunity to play the piano, but I always wanted to play.

Now I think it's time to try. I'm in love in piano covers of rock music or Yann Tiersen songs.
I'm from Poland but on polish forum I did not get a reply so I decided to come to larger worldwide forum.

To the point:
I have to buy digital piano, because i live in flat.
I dont need lot of features, lights and knobs.
I dont have much money to spend and i know very well that digital piano i will buy wont be super-piano.
For this reason i want buy used(not new) piano. I want piano that will be enough to start.(keys similar to classic keys etc.)
And I have to buy it here in Poland.

I read lot of topics and i rejected yamaha NP-31 (i think better is to have 88keys already)

So i found on the auction three models:
http://allegro.pl/pianino-casio-cdp100-i5226671721.html it is about 225 euro (but it is the auction so maybe more)(i write price in euro not in polish zloty so more people will know how much it is)

and two older models:
http://allegro.pl/yamaha-clavinova-clp-920-okazja-i5221752480.html it is 250 euro but probably it will grow

http://allegro.pl/pianino-cyfrowe-kawai-cn-370-klasyczna-klawiatura-i5205134628.html it is about 260 euro (it wont grow rather. Few weeks ago it was for 400 but there was no buyers)

And now I'm confused. I think yamaha and kawai are older models and i dont know that it dont disqualify them. Dont know if technology was good enough to make better piano than for example casio cdp-100.

Can someone help me please? smile

Oh.. I almost forgot. One more question. Why the kawai and yamaha are much bigger and heavier than casio? It is only because of the technological progress? 15 years ago all digital pianos were bigger?


Greetings from Wrocław smile

edit:
There is also Korg SP-200 but it is much more cost: 375 euro. I dont know it is worth to pay so much for it.

Since you're getting a used one, I say Clavinova. Build quality on these older models... I would say Yamaha is better bet. It's heavier, ya. As it should be if it isn't entirely made of plastic.
