Two main reasons why I believe these pianos are so good is because Samick has entered into a business relationship for 2012 and beyond with the Fatar key action company and the Orla digital sound electronics company, both of which are located in Italy. These two well known European companies have been designing high quality digital piano components for many years and are very respected in Europe and around the world. Samick is now using these two company's pro quality (I have played them and they are really good) graduated hammer piano key actions (with full dynamic response) along with convincing stereo digital piano & instrument sounds and had them built into these new models. I believe the resulting outcome is that Samick has the best digital pianos they have ever offered and are now very competitive with the more well known names in digital pianos. And these instruments are at very reasonable prices (in my opinion) for many people looking for a beautiful and well built furniture cabinet along with very satisfying piano performance, sound, and digital features.

As far as other aspects of the SDP45 go, it has 3 full functioning brass pedals with half pedaling for graduated sustain length, 64 notes of polyphony memory which is fine for most people (128 notes would have been better but that does increase price), 385 very realistic instrument sounds, 20 panel memories for saving your favorite setups, a 16-track general MIDI multi-track player/recorder using a USB flash drive to save and load songs which is very cool, and it plays educational General MIDI files too. Each of the 16 instrument tracks, including the melody line, can be individually muted (switched off) so that you can isolate certain parts for better understanding of how that part plays and sounds, which is great for learning and playalong. That is a very useful feature not found in many digital pianos.
