Hey experts,
I am sure that you get this a lot and I hope that your frustration doesn't get the better of you on this, but I need some advice. I thought that I was going to be able to buy a baby grand, but the military housing that I am staying in can't fit one, so that dream is toast until I get back to the states. In the mean time, I would like to buy a nice digital with the best possible piano sound. I really want one that has an authentic piano key feel and sound. To me, feel is nearly as important as sound. I was looking at something with some digital recording capabilities so I can play some guitar tracks with it too. I was thinking about something along the lines of the Yamaha PF500, Yamaha YDP223, or ....... This is where you come in. Please feel free to toss me some advice. Thanks!

i got PF500 and would say that you just go for it!

i was just visiting some friends last weekend and played on their Yamaha U1 and felt like even easier to play on such an acoustic than my digital, because the keys feel lighter on U1 now. btw, i played on an U1 before, and recall a heavier feel then. i guess playing on PF500 for a while does make playing on an acoustic so much easier.
