Have read through many posts on a few pianos, one specifically, the NU1. It is pretty new, so I am wondering if there are any reviews, thoughts, etc? How are you using its different features? Favorite things?
We are pretty serious about this dp, but its not inexpensive so we are trying to do our due diligence! Thanks!
You don't say what you are looking for in a DP.
The NU1 does not have many different features. Hardly any customisable options. The few extra sounds, apart from the second piano, are not really useful at all. It does have midi in and out though, so additional sounds can be added if desired.
It's an excellent acoustic substitute for piano practice. Not anything else IMHO. It looks good, nice key action (just like a piano!), timbre, sound are all good; solid I would say rather than outstanding. It's a Yamaha sound, not to to everyone's taste.
Is it better than the equivalents from Roland, LX15, or Kawai, CS9? Only if you value its piano key action.
I have one, and am totally satisfied with everything, have stopped GAS-ing and suspect my next upgrade will be an acoustic. (Previously owned a Casio PX330, Kawai CN33, play also a friends Roland FP7F, and my teachers K3 acoustic. )
If you read previous threads, the criticisms aimed at it are: price, limited versatility, noisy key action (clunky) and weak bass (compared to an acoustic). None of these are factors for me. I just use piano sound, except when hooking up my iPad, the keys cannot be heard on normal volumes, the mids and treble allow the RH melody to sing. It looks good, sounds good, plays good. Great actually. My acoustic piano playing has improved hugely since acquiring it, due to the (clunky) keyboard. My playing is improving because I just so much enjoy practice these days.
