Hi Irenev,

Not to introduce more confusion for you, but have you had a chance to check out a Roland DP? A lot of people think their action is far superior to the Kawaii and Yamaha pianos, particuarly at the lower end models.

That's a really good price on the AP45 and it has 64 note polyphony. Make sure it's the AP45, though, and not the AP24 which is not nearly as good...

The Kawai EP2 is about $1,100. Very nice unit.

The Roland's have good action but are also above $1,000. The FP4 is $1300 in black or $1050 in white.

Like I said earlier, you get what you pay for and if you can pay more, you'll get more... true with just about everything.

If you want the cabinet and pedals all in one unit, certainly the PX200 or PX110 won't be as attractive.

It does get kind of confusing and, in the end, you need to be happy with your purchase. I spent over a month doing research...

If that is really the price for the AP45 (it's presently showing at $999 on samash.com), I'd get that if you liked it because you're saving $300 which is pretty big discount.

Did you notice the difference between PX110/700 and PX200/800? Did you try the Yamahas? What were your thoughts?
Whatever you do, do it from the heart...

Yes, I tried a couple of them, but I believe they weren't portable, and there was something I didn't like - maybe the touch/price--sorry, I tried soooo many over the weekend! I ended up getting the PX200--this is only supposed to get me by until I find the piano of my dreams. \:D
