yam44's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " good touch, good sound, compactness ... What more?"

The connector is for an ultra complte piano plutt orient public is rare!
Instrument simple, efficient and built to last. The top and rear are mtal unlike Yamaha pianos amplified range equivalent (p60, p70, p85, p95) that are all plastic. I think onboard sound is better too because of a.

2-track recording function is handy to capture a piece of ide.

UTILIZATION

I had several pianos and acoustic numriques heavy touch (a Yamaha P80, and currently a XS8) so I know a little piano.
I came across this Kawai ES1 while I was looking for a second keyboard for the living room space-saving, and easy dplacer. The ES1 is trs compact, without being super lightweight (requires heavy touch).

Excellent touch lighter than the P80 (though I loved), but more because of the coup raliste more like an upright piano.

SOUNDS

The sounds of acoustic piano and electric range from good trs trs correct, I do not use the others (Kawai makes excellent concert pianos), and HP hold the road well trs , even if it costs at prfrera a headphone or with a good Systm amplification for deeper bass. In this case a little button to cut the high parleurss internal handy.

OVERALL OPINION

Oh I forgot, it is also more beautiful than these competitors!

In short you will understand, this piano is a nice surprise trs trs and I'm satisfied.

-7 Octaves.
-8 2 keys to making sound chaqune 16. We can run two at the same time, making 128 possible
-Chorus, reverb, EQ non-ditable
Full-output

UTILIZATION

-Touch, frankly that's what I prfre
We can not make more easy to use
It is a MIDI keyboard but it's not a matre
-The manual? infantile

SOUNDS

-For my style of music on the piano for me for the rest I go through an expander
-The others are rather ralistes yes but not all
Ben-effects I think it's options as they age so the least we wonder what they are
-Everything is relative, I found good expression trs
I prefer the piano, the strings bof

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 5 years, I love everything about this keyboard: his touch, his piano, his connections, its small size, I tried all of the store, he had the best touch. The price is still reasonable bin.
Looking back now I would have taken the same but with a real table against twelve o'clock

I prfre feel of the ES1 Yamaha P120 (P80) that jOperation with my prof. It is a bit lightweight but the nuances are better returned. The keys are shallower and enable faster play. In addition, the bottom button is softer than the P120.
A model for amplification is shallow and the connectors on the cot on the left is very practical (no more stiff neck)
I am not patient trs trs jai found the manual clear.
The only complaint is that the mtronome nindique no values. It must rgler to pif.

The sounds are good especially the piano (6 of 16) which is the basic sound I think.
The chorus effects are often rverb eq Intgr original post in the sounds with the option to remove them or change them. I add the chorus on the modern piano to play the boogie; your exact sapparente the piano bar.

I am the User for 2 years in various styles and rgale me always the same.

-88 Piano notes-as much as a "regular" - a little over 7 octaves
-16 Sounds non ditables
-2 Effects (chorus + reverb)
-3 Diffrent curves of legalization for touch
Mtronome-
Squenceur 2-tracks (but trs quickly limit in notes)
To transpose
-Connectivity (plutt provided for a keyboard of this type): 6.35 2 out jacks (L and R / mono), one enters the minijack; output to host (for connecting a PC or Mac), 2 doses noon (in and out), 1 entrepdale (included), 2 out phone
It's own piano possde amplification, we can use it without any hardware (no need for headphones or speakers).

UTILIZATION

Touch is good without being exceptional, even if it is better than many pianos This category (88 ratings, portable and heavy touch).
The big advantage of this keyboard is above the level of amplification intgre and its dimensions as it is shallow TRS, which makes it easily transportable. In addition, the piano can be placed against a wall if you do not have much space, since all the connections are located on the ct of the device.

SOUNDS

The sounds are not many trs (16) compared with a synthtiseur but they are good overall. However, Intrets this kind of keyboards do not RSID in diffrent sound but it can make plutt in the simulation of an acoustic piano, not only in sound but also in touch. Moreover, it is always possible to add sound via an expander either in hardware (via MIDI) or software (via the TO HOST).

OVERALL OPINION

I use the ES-1 for the past one month and a half j'apprcie particulirement its small size (and therefore relatively easy to transport), complte its connectivity, but also, and this that guided my choice, his touch (compared to other models "portable" and in this price range).
My only minor complaint to the ES-1: its collection outdoor cts agglomr are covered with a thin, thin layer of plastic trs which tends during an impact from a little violent, but this should not be much of a problem if you take care and all fawn, the problem is ... qu'esthtique
The list price remains lev (12000 F) but the quality and price of the proposed 1050 France Piano E (7500 F) which is interesting trs.
