Hello! I'm new to this forum. You have a great message board here! I'm interested in returning to the piano after a 15 years hiatus. Previously played classical at an intermediate level. Would like an acoustic grand within 5-10 yrs but with my level of playing right now I don't think I would be able to make a good decision. I wanted something I could practice on to get to my previous level or better before making a big purchase. Anyway, I thought a digital would be a better fit for my situation. I narrowed things down to the Roland HP2 which I guess is being discontinued and the HP 103 which I've been told is the equivalent. Both were very nice, but I wasn't comfortable with the touch.

I preferred the Clavinovas and tried the CLP 130/150/170 line. I didn't notice much difference between the 130/150 with regards to tone/touch. The 170 has a marked difference in both that I think may be worth the extra $500.

My local dealer is asking $3000 for the 170 in rosewood including bench, delivery. This seems in line with what I've read on the forum for a base price but these prices were from 2002-2003. Does anyone know if this line is going to the discontinued in the near future and if it may be better to wait before making an offer? Does anyone have any other suggestions as to other digitals to consider?

CLP150/CLP170 has 128 polyphony, and CLP120/130 has 64. also, CLP170/175 are the latest models with the so called GH3 keyboard vs. GH keyboard for the rest of CLP models. See here for the specs of each:

Yamaha CLP Site

if you don't have to worry about money, get CLP170/175 of course.

The 170 has a big advantage in sound as compared to the other CLP models because it has iAFC. Follow signa's link to Yamaha for a much better description of iAFC than I could give you.
