I have loved the RD-700 since the SX series several years back, and Rolands has always outdone themselves. The Touch and Feel of the Third Gen - Progressive Hammer Action (PHA3) keys is the BEST in the business, and the synthetic Ivory keys are amazingly effective when out gigging and you get those sweaty hands. Now, in comparison to other stage pianos, the RD-700GX and NX are some of the heaviest stage pianos in the business because of the PHA3..... so if weight is a concern too you, I would look into the RD-300GX. But, I have had many Pianists sit and play my RD-700GX and comment on how shocked they are at the quality of sound and realism of the Action. But I also wish I had a 300gx sometimes as well, Cause the RD-700NX/GX weighs over 55 pounds


UTILIZATION

It's a good stage box, very versatile with the four layers, foot controller, and a good assortment of factory patches. I've tweaked the patches considerably, and am mostly pleased with the product. It has a great feel too it, not like a real grand piano or anything but compared to some other boards similar to this, this one just feels better.

SOUNDS

Amazing 3 grand pianos 3 electric pianos ivory pha3 keys easy to use nice sound & touch response the best rd series congratulations to Roland job well done very recommended gear to all whose looking for digital pianos.

OVERALL OPINION


The 2 downsides for me are, the acoustic pianos don’t sound like they should or like they do on other boards. I think they could have a more rich sound to them. The acoustics are very mid heavy and plain. Almost like a boxy type of sounds, you will have to spend a lot of time on the eq to get them they way they should sound. Very happy with this board overall though.
