Hello everybody.

First of all, sorry for my English, I am from spain.

I just bought a P250. Beside the "buzzing" problems I am having with it and which I already posted about in the "buzzing" topic, another doubt is coming to my mind.

I bought the p250 without thinking much about other models becaused I owned a p150 for 8 years and fell in love with the sound of the p series. By that time, clavinova´s sound was not that good.

But now I have some friends that say that if I wanted the best sound and touch, I should have gone for the top models of the CLP or CVP series.

Anybody can confirm that?.

I had no chance to try any piano before buying the p250 since in my city there are no dealers with stock.

thanks

The CLP170/CVP307/CVP309 have a more realistic piano sound and touch to the P250, in my opinion.

The P250 is designed to be a bit more 'dynamic' and brighter, to cut through the mix onstage.

If you can appreciate the performance characteristics of the Natural Keyboard, and don't require the features of a stage piano, and don't need an all-in-one ensemble unit and have the space and the money, the CLP175 could be on your short list. If you want ensemble features in a piano as well, you might want to consider one of the CVP309 models.

Don't get fooled by # of samples, and other marketing ploys.

I own a P-250 and I am very happy with it.

As you know, the P-250 has a 5 band equalizer, and allows you to store an unlimited # (space permitting) of setups and Voice settings via the Performance file feature.

Whereas, the CLP150/CLP170/CLP175 units only allow one stored setup, and only one group of settings for each Voice and Voice combination.

Nonetheless, I would take the CLP175 over the CLP170 in a heartbeat, if I needed a piece of furniture and wanted a top-notch built-in amplification system.

The P-250 has a very high resale value. If I were you, I would hold on to the P-250, and wait for the next batch of CLPs to hit the market. Then you can sell your P-250 and get the best digital piano technology that Yamaha has to offer.
