Kawai ES920 digital piano
The Kawai ES920 at $1799 price - This 2022 model has been out for about a year and is very impressive in our opinion because it utilizes Kawai's famous grand piano super sound chip inside which is the identical sound chip being used in their higher end $3000 home digital piano. It really does sound amazing at such a low price, especially as compared to what the other brands have to offer in a top end portable digital piano. This model has a good looking compact furniture style case (optional stand & triple pedals), natural stereo piano tone, responsive key action which is best in its class over other portable digital pianos including Yamaha, Roland, etc, pro pedaling response, and lots of very cool digital features incl USB connectivity, audio wav and MP3 recording & playback, Bluetooth wireless, and all of it easy to use. This piano is very hard to get because of high demand and low supply. Go to my detailed review at the following link and then let me know what you think: Kawai ES920 Review

sold out The Casio Celviano AP-710 at $2799 on-line discount price is a very popular home digital furniture cabinet piano right now - This one is Casio's best home digital piano for under $3000 and it has and does everything that most people want including having an impressive stereo sampled piano sound designed in conjunction with the Bechstein Grand Piano company of Germany along with 256-note polyphony combined with useful digital features, especially as
Casio AP-710
Casio AP-710
compared to other furniture cabinet model or brands under $3000. This is a very impressive piano in my opinion because it has amazing "life-like" stereo grand piano sounds, a very responsive and dynamic weight-graded key action and it comes in a very attractive furniture cabinet with tilt-open lid sound expansion. 

This model is definitely one that gives a Big Bang for the Buck in so many ways, especially as compared with other name brand digital pianos such as Yamaha in this same price range. Casio may not have the same "piano name" prestige as a Kawai, Yamaha, or Steinway, etc, but don't let that fool you. Casio knows what they're doing and it shows in this instrument. In fact, the popularity and relatively low price for this model considering what it does has caused this model to be nearly sold out according to Casio. There is even "lower discount pricing" on this model with free shipping and no tax so please ask me more about this if your are interested. This may or may not be the perfect piano for you but to know for sure, please check out my review at the following link and let me know what you think: Casio AP-710 Review

picture of Yamaha CSP170
Yamaha CSP-150 ($3699) & CSP-170 ($4999) Smart Pianos - In cooperation with Apple Company - Yamaha has an all new class of digital pianos which is the first of their kind that offer high quality digital pianos with a unique control panel design that looks like a piano but with only 2 buttons and one volume control on the pianos themselves. This minimalistic cabinet design might fool you into thinking the pianos don't do much, but you would be very wrong if that's what you thought. 

The big surprise is that Yamaha piano company in cooperation with the Apple company has designed a new comprehensive "Smart Pianist" app for iOS product (iPad & iPhone) that puts the power of music and music education at your fingertips...literally. There has never been a digital piano like this before and when you play one of these pianos like I have, you'll be amazed by what you can do with it and they are a lot less money than you might think for all of this new music technology. Also, the Smart Pianist app is now available for Android devices so everyone can enjoy a CSP-150 or CSP-170 now. Learn more about these impressive pianos at the following link: Yamaha CSP-150 & CSP-170 Digital Smart Pianos

Casio PX-S3000 digital piano
The Casio PX-S3100 at $879 is one of the most impressive self-contained portable digital pianos under $1000. This is because for it's very slim compact size cabinet weighing in at only 24 lbs along with having battery power besides the normal included power supply, the piano-weighted key action, stereo HD piano sound chip, impressive pedaling response and sustain/decay time, and new 3D multi-directional speaker surround sound is also impressive. For people looking to get a fairly realistic piano playing experience under $1000 in a compact, lightweight portable 88-key digital piano, this new PX-S3100 is worth serious consideration. 

There are so many impressive technology features in this model that you might otherwise think this piano should cost more than it does for how good it is. Casio has been climbing up over the recent years in its bid to take over this category of low priced portable digital pianos and they have done a good job with this one. Please read my full review of this new model before you make a purchase. Casio PX-S3100 Review


Roland DP603 digital piano Roland has a smaller contemporary model called the DP603 digital piano and it is somewhat popular. Available in 2 cabinet colors, the discount selling price is from $2999 and up. The DP603 borrows its sound, feature technology, and key action from its higher priced big brothers the HP and LX home piano series. Roland also produces a lower priced HP702 piano selling for approx $2400 at piano stores. Although the DP603 has been out for well over 5 years it is still a very good option. Is the Roland DP603 better than the other brands and models listed here? Not necessarily and there are definitely other great choices in this price range too. Take a look at my DP603 review at the following link and let me know what you think? Roland DP603 Review

Kawai CA48 digital piano
The Kawai CA49 - The well known Kawai piano company has a newer impressive home furniture cabinet digital piano that has been out for over a year which is very competitive in the $2500+ price range. The CA49 at just $2899 features a real all-wood key action (white keys only) designed to more closely emulate an acoustic grand piano with a smooth playing key action like few others in its price range. Coupling this innovative and organic feeling key action is a resonant stereo grand piano sound, responsive pedaling, and a nice set of useful digital functions and features. 

If you looking for a more traditional home furniture cabinet with technology focused more on playing the piano rather than lots of "bells & whistles" and all at what I consider to be a very reasonable price at $2899, the Kawai Concert Artist CA49 digital piano offered in premium satin black, premium satin rosewood, and premium satin white just might be the perfect choice for you. Go to the following link to read my review of this very nice Kawai digital piano: Kawai CA49 Review

Yamaha CLP645 piano The 2022 Yamaha CLP-745 - The upgraded Clavinova model with noticeably more authentic piano sound and sustained tones along with wood keys that move nicely and an intuitive user interface with many impressive digital features. With prices starting at $3699 discount internet price in a variety of attractive satin finishes, this piano looks very attractive in any room. For just a slightly higher price you can also order one in a beautiful high polished ebony finish as well. If you want a more attractive cabinet with a full classic piano sound and have the budget to purchase an instrument like this, then I recommend it here in our "best buy" list for a more advanced digital piano in a slightly higher price range that's great for beginner students on up to advanced pianists along with pro players. Please check out my latest review of this new model at the following link: Yamaha CLP-745 Review

Casio AP-470 digital piano Casio AP-470 Celviano Home Digital Piano - $1699 -  This newer model piano that sounds impressive in a nicely designed traditional cabinet which looks great, sounds beautiful, and works like a piano. It's minimalistic appearance will blend in with any home along with being available in 3 cabinet colors: matte brown walnut, matte white, or matte black. This is an instrument that focuses squarely on being a piano but with a few frills but not overloaded with bells & whistles you may not want.  

After playing this new model many times I recommend it for families in a lower price range under $1700 but who want a quality piano with smooth playing piano key action, resonate acoustic piano sound, and responsive pedaling that a beginner through a more advanced player can appreciate. It also includes a matching height-adjustable bench and a very long 5 year parts & labor factory warranty all for a lower $1699 internet discount price. Check it out at the following link: Casio AP-470 Review

Korg G1 Air digital piano
Korg G1B Air home contemporary compact digital piano at $1999 - This small but powerful digital piano is amazing for how it sounds and plays as a piano. Korg is in the top 5 most respected Japanese digital piano companies today and is well known for processional stage pianos and keyboards but not as well known in the recent past for furniture cabinet home digital pianos. However, all that is changing with the advent of their newer "home style" digital piano for $1999 that competes head on with the other guys. In some ways the G1 Air is superior to the competition in this price range and even against the higher price ranges. 

With very impressive piano key action, big stereo grand piano sound, and long sustain pedaling response, I believe you'll be quite surprised at how good this newer model sounds and plays for its lower price. If you don't know about this Korg piano or much about the their company, please read my detailed review to learn more, you'll be glad you did: Korg G1 Air Review

picture of Dylan Praskins
*PERSONAL REQUEST I would appreciate it if you could read my special report concerning my grandson, Dylan and he is a big reason why I spend so much time doing this blog and providing people just like you (world-wide) the best possible and most trusted on-line content about digital pianos there is. Dylan suffers from some severe mental, physical, and social dysfunction from his battle with childhood Leukemia. He was fortunate enough to have beat the Leukemia itself through an early process of having chemo, radiation, and then finally a full cord-blood transplant which saved his life. 

However the outcome of all that treatment was that the chemo and radiation left Dylan in a state of obvious dysfunction in so many ways and continues to this day, although he is growing and learning, but at a very slow pace. Dylan will likely never be a "normal" person and although he is a wonderful, smiley child a lot of the time, he behaves like he has a form of autism, but in fact he has what is known as "chemo-brain" which is a severe and permanent dysfunction of the brain and the neurons that control his body and behavior due to the chemo and radiation he received as an infant. I am asking anyone who feels so inclined to read my short story of my grandson Dylan at the following link and pray for him if you will. Thank you! Dylan's story

2018 should be the year Roland renews its HP and LX range of pianos (HP603, HP605, LX-7, LX-17) with new and hopefully better pianos!

Hoping to hear your thoughts on the Roland Fp-60. It's at a very attractive price point.

Tim Praskins - AZ Piano Reviews said...

no changes with Roland pianos from last year going into 2018 with the exception of a new 5' digital baby grand called the GP609 that is a larger, more powerful version of the smaller GP607 digital baby grand and will sell over $10,000.

I have played the FP60 and I will be publishing my review of the FP60 in the near future. It is essentially a portable version of the Roland RP501R (same key action and piano sound source) but with the upgraded piano editing features of the FP90 and registration storage. Larger polyphony than RP501R but overall pretty much sounds and plays the same. Offers a somewhat brassy piano tone but I do like the FP60 overall....not physical modeling which is good. Reasonable price point, nice internal speaker system, etc. I like it better than the Yamaha P255 although not near as much as I like the Kawai ES8, but that one is a big price jump. I personally like the more natural piano tone on the lower priced Kawai ES110 better and that model is $729, but speaker system is much better on Roland FP60. Just depends on what is important to you musically.

Hi Tim,
I am located in Europe, and I have to buy a white cabinet digipiano to my 8 years old doughter. She plays the piano since two years, and seems to be talented, but she is sometimes not enough motivated to practice, that is why it should be white and should have USB midi connection to be able to use apps installed on a tablet. Of cource realistic key action, sound and pedaling experience are the most important factors. Which piano would you recommend from the following list? (they are now nearly at the same price level in Europe) Casio PX-770, Casio AP-270, Korg C1 air, (Korg LP380), Roland F-140R, (Roland RP102) – Thank you for your help!

Tim Praskins - AZ Piano Reviews said...

I recommend all of them as they all offer impressive features in their price range. But my favorites with regard to the best piano playing experience would definitely be the Casio AP270 and Korg C1 Air

Thank you very much for your reviews Tim!
I just wanted to ask what should I better buy Yamaha CLP-645 or Kawai CA48. In my country they are in the same price range.

AZPianoNews said...

You can be happy with both instruments for key action but the Yamaha has the far better, more realistic piano sound.
