Hi--Wish I saw your sight Tim before purchasing a piano but guess I just lucked out! You confirmed my choice coming to my home in a few days---a quality piano @ an affordable price---The Roland Home Bundle complete RP401R plus for under my 2,000 budget! I too, thought it better than any Yamaha in this price range anyway. Have no need for portability and the more traditional design and nice rosewood color fit well w/my d├ęcor! And yes, for only a few hundred more like the bench and accessories offered. I know you say the Roland 130 is the same in regards to sound ,but I thought the RP401R sounded slightly better in the demos????Is this just the type of recording or does the more substantial cabinetry make for a slightly better sound? Thank you for telling me about the music sheet holder and different control panel design on the RP401R---think I'm going to like that also! All in all, thank you for confirming I made the best choice for me w/the RolandRP401R---and didn't touch my savings account!(grin) Appreciate any answers to my just curious questions above when you have the time. Thank you kindly, Karoly----and do hope your son is doing okay.
