Piano numrique scne of 88 notes, touch piano (hammers mcaniques)
16 sounds (4 by its variation) Reverb, Chorus, Keyboard splitable.
Output L / R, 2 headphone outputs, MIDI in / out, 2 between expression pedals (including sustain pedals included)

UTILIZATION

The feel is correct but a bit lightweight. Forcment is useful if you want to make super fast solos but I prfre even when the heavy touch of my old RD 300 which is much closer to that of a real piano (but hey, instrument-l did not have the same price dpart). That said, I think it's partly thanks to touch the relatively lightweight as poinds the piano does not Exceeds 20 pounds (my back says thank you!).
Operation is simple, once you read the manual.
Some remarks dsobligeantes even when:
- It is unfortunate that need both hands when you want to change the sound of the "lower" split keyboard mode.
- There is no Volume Controller spars for the midi out channel.
- The automatic transposition in split mode is a functionality that I would pass.

SOUNDS

The sounds are correct. I find the piano a little mtallique and Difference in volume between the treble and bass are EXAGRES (means only the treble and it's really boring). At home I will continue to use Acustix https://fr.audiofanzine.com/sample-piano/acustix/Concert-Grand-Piano/ with Halion.
I love the rhodes and hammond sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

This is not the instrument but I rvais report quality price is right.
I have tried many other instruments but olny that Roland was more or less my needs (and I can not afford to buy a Clavia nordstage).
If I had to buy a piano now, my choice would be srement on this instrument, even when that Submitted a number of advantages, including poinds pen for scne.
