The Premium Pack includes a set of Nady HP03 closed-back stereo headphones, a Yamaha WB2 padded wooden bench, and Yamaha LP7A three-pedal system. If I was forced to come up with some negatives about this model, it would be the onboard speakers- weak volume wise and lacking that "depth" in the low ranges not to mention many reviews have said they have a tendancy to blow at prolonged high volume(I've yet to have a prob. But if you're looking for a solid, high-end sounding piano for your home or studio for under $1000, you can't beat this unit. I am a performing songwriter but I am also a fataher of ten children so budget friendly is everything to me!
As for the feel, sound, features, and such; the possibilities for a songwriter are endless! If you're a songwriter, especially a recording songwriter on budget- BUY THIS PIANO AND LOOK NO FURTHER!
I bought it with the deal that contained the bench and three pedal system - most definitely required for a full piano experience. Just turn it on and go - Yamaha has included many great sound samplings in this instrument, allowing for a host of instruments to be accessed. There are many advanced features, which do look to have a somewhat steep learning curve - however, since I haven't needed those, I can't comment authoritatively on those. So far so good - I don't think it is an instrument that is made to be moved frequently or "on the road" - a large part of the device is plastic and doesn't look like it would take a large amount of abuse before having issues. Since the DGX-640 is out (and the "new" version of this keyboard) I think that the pricing should be lowerd a bit; while still manufactured I would imagine that it won't be long before it is discontinued.
I chose this one over the DGX-640 because (a) it was about $100 less, and for my needs, the additional benefits of the DGX-640 would rarely (if ever) be utilized, and (b) this has the "wood" accents on the keyboard itself - missing on the DGX-640, I think these accents give the keyboard richer look that is missing from the 640. Haven't needed service, so I am non-commital on this - however, Yamaha has had an excellent history with their musical instruments so I don't expect any problems if I needed support.
When designing the KeyStudio 49i keyboard, M-Audio engineers focused on songwriters need by combining everything songwriters need in a single, easy-to-use package so that technology is transparent to the creative process.
The compact keyboard features Sing-Along function, musical information system display, and on-screen icons. I am trying to find a user manual for a casio ctk700 key broad or a radio shack md992 keybroad but it seems to be very hard to do.
The CHASE P55 Portable Piano brings you a realistic playing feel on 88 Hammer Action Keys at a great price point.

To add more realism to your sound you get integrated digital effects such as chorus and reverb. The P55 also offers you a microphone input, which is a great addition if you also want to sing along to your piano playing.

ANAHEIM (January 23, 2014) — Yamaha today introduced the new P-255 contemporary digital piano at the 2014 NAMM Show, a keyboard for experienced musicians looking for a portable, self-amplified instrument for both serious practice and live performance. As suitable in the home as it is on stage, this powerhouse model boasts Pure CF Sampling from a Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand for its piano tone, outstanding responsive touch via Graded Hammer action and Synthetic Ivory Keytops designed for maximum comfort even during long playing sessions.
When performing with a group, Sound Boost helps players cut through the mix of other musicians by compressing the dynamic range of the keyboard's sound to raise volume output. Paired with the optional L-255 matching stand and LP-255 piano-style, three-pedal unit, the P-255 provides an attractive contemporary piano appearance that doesn't take up too much space in the home. Whether you want to dive into a colorful world of 150 rhythms, use the sampling function together with the voice pads, or connect a CD or MP3 player through the audio input so that you can play along to your favorite song on the keyboard, this Casio keyboard provides a huge range of features and functions. The SP4-7 features 76-key Semi-weighted keyboard, LCD display, 64 voice Polyphony, 16 parts Multi-timbral, 128 preset Programs, 128 factory setups, Timbre knob, Effects, Pitch and Modulation wheels.
Weight merely 24 lbs, the portable keyboard is ideal for musicians and gigging pianists who need portability.
The YPG-635 features many more voices and styles than previous models along with brand new DSP effects for improved rotary organ sounds. With the Yamaha YPG-635, you have the equivalent of a built-in multi-track recorder to record one or multiple instrument parts at a time and assign each part to a different track. The songs are separated into left and right hand parts, providing 7 levels of lessons plus a convenient chord dictionary. In fact, Yamaha professional audio products are found in most professional recording studios around the world. This allows the player to play the keyboard like a piano; for example a chord with the right hand and bass notes with the left. Survival Kit includes a two-year extended warranty, full length Watch & Learn DVD, Grand Piano cloth key cover, stereo headphones, bonus coupons and a DVD-ROM.
The piano sounds sound slightly tingy through the built in speakers BUT, plug this baby into a mixer or outboard amp and POW! So if you have a chair at your place, keep in mind that it already comes with a sustain pedal, and the headphones are probably the cheapest on the market so I wouldn't bother with buying the package. I only opened the manual once because I was curious about a few commands and wouldn't you know it, they worked exactly how I thought they should!
The stand comes with a "reinforcement steel bar that mounts to the underside of the unit to keep it from sagging! You can play comfortably with an acoustic set (Couple of acoustic guitars, etc.) but other than that, not enough volume to support itself without amplification. But i did go on the Yamaha site to attempt to register my piano, there is no registration page! And from the reasearch that I've done, other than speaker problems I don't see that happening!
I bought the "survival kit" as it advertised the dust cover, but it is nothing more than a felt cloth that just covers the keys.
I especially like the fact that there is a button that no matter what is programmed with return the instrument to it's original function of a grand piano sound. It is as good as it gets - as stated above, the "wood" accents make it look better than it's newer cousin the 640.
If it is in still good working order at that point, then anything I would buy would be to supplement this one. Users can play the on-board piano as a stand-alone instrument with no computer or software required. Although the keys are not weighted, this instrument responds expressively to subtleties in your playing.
It features the same award winning Graded Hammer Action (GHA) Keyboard with adjustable touch sensitivity known from the CDP-250 and CDP-350 series. The 10 different sounds of the Chase P-55 are directly accessible through the voice voice selection panel. That lets you emulate even the biggest concert hall and that at home.The Chase P55 features 2 stereo headphone outputs which let you play the piano silently without anyone else hearing you. It features a built in 2 track recorder, which allows you for example to record the music for the right hand first and then play something on top with the left hand.


The piano has a dedicated volume control for the microphone to make sure you get the mix just right.
You can play the piano and sing along to it and record it straight away onto a regular USB Pen drive as a MP3 file.
This gives you very realistic piano feel with Sustain Pedal, Sostenuto Pedal and Soft Pedal.
Separate Volume Controls For The Microphone Allow You To Adjust The Sound Of Your Voice How You Need It. For Example Play Bass Guitar On The Left Hand Side And A Piano Melody On The Right Hand Side. For solo appearances, a comprehensive set of built-in rhythm patterns adds great sounding drums and percussion to any performance. Additionally, mobile devices can be connected to the mini-jack AUX input, allowing music to play through the model's built-in speakers, or even through a connected external amplifier.
Like create splits and layers with the touch of a button; select presets and setups from easy to access category and program buttons, and quickly control effects parameters using the Timbre knob, so musicians can customize sound without having to dive into menus and the menu-shy can customize their sound with ease. The expanded 64-note polyphony adds to the lush sound palette especially when using the on board sequencer.
For those that want to learn to play using the Yamaha YPG-635, notation adds a new dimension to the Yamaha Education Suite, allowing you to hear a song while you follow the notes in the display. Six tracks are provided to accommodate sophisticated melodies, chord accompaniment and rhythm parts.
The Yamaha YPG-635 takes full advantage of this know-how, giving you an extensive range of twenty-nine, top-quality reverb effects that simulate playing in everything from a small room to a large spacious concert hall and twenty-four chorus effects that add richness to electric pianos and guitars in particular and 182 DSP types for adding everything from distorted guitars to rotary speaker effects. Kind of "always in your face" like that bright stereo face in your car at two in the morning. The pedal unit is very cheaply constructed (All plastic) and I wasn't aware that the piano came with a sustain pedal in the box! I was hoping for something more substantial like a vinyl cover that completely covered the keyboard. In addition, users can also connect the KeyStudio 49i keyboard to a PC or Mac via USB.  Musicians can record vocals and instruments as well as listen to sessions and mixes from the audio outs or headphone jacks. The on-board grand piano sounds are superb and the sound module has very good sounds and much better than sample from keyboards twice the price. 10 high quality sampled high definition stereo sounds provide you all you need to sound great, on stage, at home or in the studio.
The New Chase Advanced Sampling Technology [CAST] Reproduces The Natural Sound As Realistic As Never Before. To take it one step further, you get MP3 recorder which allows to record your songs onto a USB pen drive. A practice piece is divided into individual sections and then learned step by step, just like in a traditional music lesson. The 16-part Multi-timbral architecture makes the Kurzweil SP4-7 a powerful tool for writing and recording music in conjunction with an external sequencer or Desktop Audio Workstation. Traditional portable keyboards normally require you to chord on the left side of the keyboard, in the bass section, which is foreign to most piano players. Granted there are a lot of better pianos on the market right now, but none close to this price range in my opinion. The feel of the weighted keys mimick some great true-life baby grands I have played in my life. The M-Audio KeyStudio 49i downside is that it has only 49-keys instead of the 88-keys but, if you can handle the octave buttons well then you can change your octave with just a push of the button. You get a good selection of high quality sounds including two grand piano sounds, two electric pianos, Harpsichord, Vibraphone, String Ensemble, Chorus, Jazz Organ and Church Organ, all at your fingertips. Once you have recorded your song, plug in a standard USB pen drive and record your song in MP3 format. You can then send it straight away to all your friends and family to show them your new song. I find myself consiously "taking it easy" on the pedal unit for fears of breaking it with normal use! The manual does have quite a bit of technical information concerning the midi programming however.
