Roland RP301/F120 Review
This is my review from the now discontinued RP201 & F110: Roland is famous for musical instruments of all kinds and I have been playing and using them for years. In fact, that's all Roland does; they make high quality digital home and professional music products. From pro digital drum kits to digital accordions, digital pianos to home and pro digital organs, guitar amps to multi-track recorders; pro synthesizers to special effects, they pretty much do it all. In fact the Roland company owns and makes the BOSS guitar products and Edirol audio & digital computer music products lines which are used by music professionals and recreational music lovers all over the world.
If you want to stay in a price range under $2000 I would suggest you also consider Kawai, Yamaha, and Casio digital pianos in similar price ranges as the RP201 and F110. Make no mistake though, the piano sound on these Roland pianos is very good, although the built-in audio system is only 24 watts of total power which is OK but not great as compared to built-in speaker systems (40 to 60 watts) in other digital pianos at similar prices that I have played.
As far as Casio goes, it is not the only option, but I am not comparing Casio to Mercedes Benz either:) However, in my opinion it offers the most quality & features for the money in a lower price range and that's what we're talking about here. A Casio digital piano is a very good choice and the company is known for producing some fine electronic products including digital pianos for over 30 years. Once you get up towards $2000 and beyond in a digital piano, then there are definitely other good options including the Roland HP & Yamaha CLP Clavinova, and Kawai CN series of digital pianos.
