#698030 - 11/02/08 05:35 AM "USA version" of the new Yamaha CLP-370 different from the European version ?

I found this about the CLP-370 on the Yamaha USA website.

OR it's a mistake, OR the USA version is different from the European:

60W x 2 + 20W x 2 (USA?) versus 40W x 2 (Europe)
50 sampling banks (USA?) versus 30 (Europe)

The rest seems to be the same. ( same speakers, no IAFC, no String resonance)

So if this is true, the "USA CLP-370" is a bit closer to the CLP-380 than the European versions in amplification and sampling banks?

I think it's an error: maybe they announce the amplication system and amount of sampling banks from the previous CLP-270.
Even on the Yamaha CANADA website they announce the "Europe" version.

Nevertheless i think is a mistake that they didn't add String Resonance to at least the CLP-340 and CLP-370 like Roland does in this class.

For me the CLP-370 should have had:

- String Resonance (like the previous CLP-270)
- 60W x 2 amplification in stead of the 40W x 2 from the CLP-240/340.
- The 50 sampling banks the CLP-270 had in stead of the 30 from the CLP-240/340.
- The 5 dynamic Sampling steps from the CLP-380 in stead of the 4 of the CLP-340/370.

For the more expensive flagschip CLP-380: the new 3-amp (35W + 20W + 20W) x 2 + 12W x 2 ampliciation with the extra 4 midrange speakers and the IAFC system like it is now.

In this case the CLP-370 would have sounded at least as good through it's speakers like it does now and terrific like a CLP-380 if you use it with good headphones[/b] and those who prefer a terrific realistic speaker sound to can spend some extra money for the extra sound hardware of the CLP-380.

With this features the CLP-370 would have been more expensive, but a perfect competitor to the Roland HP-207 in price and qualities and there wouldn't be such a huge pricegap between the CLP-370 and 380.

I love my dark rosewood Yamaha CLP-240. She's as honest with me as a loyal dog but she sounds better.

i agree with you, and thought that CLP370 is a worthless 'update' from CLP270. basically, if you have money, then get CLP380; or else, get CLP340. i would skip CLP370 entirely since it has only cosmetic advantages over CLP340 and not worth the money difference.

Only £41 extra for the PE version of the 370 over the 340 is worth it to me for the NW keyboard.
