Yamaha P85 digital piano cost $599.
Casio PX-320 cost $699.

Have not played either one. However, by just listen to the videos from the internet, the P85 sounds a lot better than PX-320.

Has anyone played both? What is your opinion?

Thanks.

It's probably a better comparison between the P85 and the PX-200, given the feature set of the Yamaha. That Casio is at least $100 cheaper, depending on where you can find it. I'm not saying it's better, just that it's probably a better apples vs. apples comparison.

For that matter, the PX-120 matches the feature set even closer. Because it's a newer model, I'm not sure it's going to be cheaper, even though it would be considered more "entry level" than the PX-200. It seems as though the best prices are not to be found on the newest models...

This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but if the P85 is like the P70 (which I own), then it's a great piano. I only use the primary grand piano sound and that's enough for me (I assume they use the same samples).

The P-85 has the better samples but also Yamaha's Graded-Hammer-Standard-Keyboard (GHS) which is very light.
For a Yamaha you better have GH(E) or higher (GH3).

It's vital that you compare the CASIO action with the YAMAHA budget-action type (GHS).

I tried the P85 and PX-200. I prefered the sound and feel of the PX-200. Plus it has a lot more features. Need to try them out.

Hi Mlee

I own a yamaha motif rack ES and that has a great sound but, I have to say I'm lovin' the sound of my new PX-320 more each day

I played some samples of how it sounds in this thread:-
