Kawai ES920 digital piano
The Kawai ES920 at $1899 price - This newer portable model has been out for about a year and is very impressive in our opinion because it utilizes Kawai's grand piano super sound chip inside which is the identical sound chip being used in their higher end $4000 home digital piano. It really does sound amazing at such a low price, especially as compared to what the other brands have to offer right now 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 new 2023 model Casio PX-S7000 at $2499 discount price is definitely a big home run since it came out just a few months ago. This one is Casio's best home digital piano for under $3000 and it has and does everything that most people want. It has  impressive stereo sampled grand piano sounds along with 256-note polyphony, combined with useful and up-to-date digital features. This is a very impressive piano in my opinion because it has amazing "life-like" stereo grand piano sounds, a very responsive and dynamic weighted-graded key "hybrid" wood & resin key action and it comes with a very unique compact contemporary stand a grand piano style triple pedal unit. It's available in gloss white or gloss black at the $2499 price, or for $200 more comes in a retro harmonious mustard color.

Casio PX-S7000 piano
This PX-S7000 model is a very unique portable piano that gives a "Big Bang for the Buck" in so many ways, especially as compared with other name brand digital pianos such as Yamaha & Roland 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 has caused this model to be nearly sold out according to Casio even in its first few weeks on the market. This new piano may or may not be the perfect piano for you, but to know for sure, please check out my new detailed review at the following link and let me know what you think: Casio PX-S7000 Review

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 HP704 digital piano
The Roland HP704 digital piano 
at $2899 in a variety of impressive cabinet colors is a nicely designed furniture cabinet  digital piano. It also comes in a polished ebony finish for more money. The HP704 has just about all the features a person would need to have a satisfying piano playing experience and being able to use many innovative technology music features to enhance your playing enjoyment. It has Bluetooth wireless streaming for audio and MIDI, easy to use control panel interface, useful recording features, and overall some impressive resonant piano sound. When it comes to a digital piano that you can keep for a long time and not get tired of it, the Roland HP704 should keep you happy and entertained for many years to come. Take a look at our review of this model at the following link: Roland HP704 Review   

Kawai CA501 digital piano
The Kawai CA501
 - $3999 - The well known Kawai piano company has a new impressive home furniture cabinet digital piano that has been out for about 6 months which is very competitive in the "under $4000" price range. The CA501 at just $3999 features a real 100% extended wood key action 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  unnecessary "bells & whistles," the Kawai Concert Artist CA501 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 impressive Kawai digital piano: Kawai CA501 Review

Yamaha CLP645 piano The Yamaha CLP-745 - $3799 price - 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 $3799 discount internet price in a variety of attractive matte finishes (higher price for polished ebony), 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

Kawai CN201 review
Kawai CN201 - $2299 price - This newer model Kawai digital piano is definitely focused on piano playing when it comes to its impressive key action, piano sound realism, and pedaling response. The more traditional cabinet design and appearance is impressive, the built-in speaker system is excellent, and the user interface and feature technology make it a compelling piano to own in its relatively affordable price range. In the $12000 to $2500 price range for someone who wants the most realistic piano playing experience in a digital piano on the market today, in our opinion no other brand comes close right now among the major brands. We encourage you to read our updated review of this model as it just my be the perfect piano for you. Check out our detailed review of this model at the following link: Kawai CN201 review

Kog G1B Air review
Korg G1B Air home contemporary compact digital piano at $1799 (which includes limited time $200 factory rebate)-
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 top "home style" digital piano for $1799 that competes head on with the other guys for more money. 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

Dylan Praskins - Leukemia survivor
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.
