hey all, I've been practicing piano about a year & a half on a low end yamaha, but I've recently been looking to upgrade, I found the Yamaha ydp s52 currently on sale for £660.

This model is around the top end of my budget - £660

Though a lot more expensive on the American sites I saw...?

I listened to it played on youtube, sounds really nice to me, but unfortunately probably wont be able to go try one out, & I couldn't really find much about it online that wasn't written by yamaha, so was hoping for some opinions on the model, maybe alternative options that I could look into.

I know pretty much nothing about DP's (i picked up a little in my search but still having lots of trouble comparing models for quality & price), was hoping for some outside input from the more experienced before i commit to anything, so thank you for reading & any help you can offer!

Yamaha makes good DPS, but the real question is is it the right one for you?

I recommend going to some stores and testing out other DPs in your price range, and maybe a bit beyond, so you get a feel for what's available and have some basis for comparison. When testing, take along headphones as sometimes it's hard to hear in those stores, or they don't have them hooked up to speakers if it doesn't have on-board speakers.

If you decide to order online without trying one first, then definitely know your return policy beforehand.
