benbar81's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent digital piano!"

Yamaha P-140
88 note keyboard heavy. 14 sounds, dual and split function.

UTILIZATION

Touched is great, it's best that I found on a digital piano, like on GH3 good clavinova. I found the sensations of touch with the Yamaha C3! The three

SOUNDS

his pianos are superb with multi-layer sample for grades p mf and ff. Sustain pedal dimmable.
Very specific reaction.
The sounds of piano, electric piano and bass are the best, others are not terrible. Super

OVERALL OPINION

piano, only negative points, and the RCA output jack and the split function a little difficult to activate, amplification not great but still good for a laptop ..

Mreg's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" touch!"

Yamaha P-140
For all characteristics has already been said I think.

UTILIZATION

I just play on a fp4 and for me there is no comparison. The touch of P140 is much better. It is certainly my opinion one of the best heavy touch of the market (in this price range of course.
That's what I need to work on my piano (classical finger).
I find the feel good for jazz too.


SOUNDS

Contrary to what has been said below, I find the sound excellent especially two of the three great piano sounds. There is a quite expressive electric piano but I can understand that some people prefer it to Roland.
I also like the combination piano / strings and church organ and a few others.
The piano allows me to make fairly subtle nuances.

OVERALL OPINION

When I wanted to buy it, I suffered an attack by fundamentalists of Roland. They tried to convince me that "it's better than roland yamaha" as if it were an absolute truth.
Well I do not regret buying this Yamaha P140 even if I blame him for his connections too minimal and some sounds very average for my taste.
As I bought in Italy in a large area near Turin (2008), the price was unbeatable (790euros).

Yamaha P-140
88 Keys

UTILIZATION

The GH action makes for a very very realistic touch keyboard, just like a classical piano. It creates different weightings based on the range: a larger hammering effect in the low register, and lighter in the higher register. Couldn't be easier!

SOUNDS

This instrument offers a wide variety of instrument sounds such as grand pianos, electric pianos, organs, harpsichords and string instruments. All these sounds have been recorded and recreated with great care and attention to detail. The beautiful sounds are richer and more nuanced than comparable models. The realism is very impressive. When amplified through the HP output and with a enough power x 2x6W plugged into a combo amp - Roland 120 watts - it is really stunning. It's a huge pleasure to play this piano.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this on stage in small concerts, and it's much better than the Roland FP 4. I am very pleased with what I can do with this baby. I'd recommend them without hesitation. I paid 1100 Euros for mine, and think it was a steal. Just about perfect.

garlau's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha P-140
Not a lot of possibilities with this one. To me, it's a basic everyday keyboard.

UTILIZATION

The functions are sometimes a bit complicated.

The hammering actions of the keys is the closest I've felt to an acoustic piano - it really felt real. I borrowed this keyboard for 2 weeks, I used it constantly, and I sometimes felt like I was still playing my upright C3 Yamaha piano, which I had last used three weeks ago. It REALLY feels like a real piano under your fingers.

SOUNDS

It FEELS like a real piano...but it doesn't sound like one. The P140 is truly bizarre. It allows you to express yourself musically through your fingers, to truly express nuance and a light touch, just like a real piano. But the actual sound produced is pathetic. It seems that Yamaha wanted to make a piano that was sensitive to how it is played, and it is, but it reacts musically like a broken down, out-of-date cheap keyboard. With the P140, it's really easy to misplay the notes, turn all the music into noise, lose all ability to express nuance, etc ... In short, when it is played lightly, delicately, it sounds ugly.

On top of this, the amplification is horrible. And the fact that you can plug into an external amp does not make turn this into a jewel, far from it!

If you don't believe me, if you can, play it and record yourself playing. Then move back 2 meters, and listen to you what you have recorded. It'll sound just like a gramophone!

OVERALL OPINION

I compared the p140 with the Roland FP4, then bought the 2nd (I was able to borrow them both before buying). At first, I didn't hesitate: I wanted the p140, because it felt just like playing a real piano, and then I caught the awful quality of the sound (oddly though, the piano sounds are actually good enough; in fact, they're TOO precise, too mechanical, which is very different from an acoustic piano's depth of feeling and character). I think the P140 could have been an excellent piano, but they totally missed the chance. Let's say that Yamaha was very close to making a great device, but ultimately, to me, it fell flat.

I finally went over to the FP4, and I do not regret it (very important to know on this site).

Note that the hammering action in the p140 is much more pronounced in the bass.

This piano can still be useful for someone looking for a good way to practice building your finger muscles; it's a good way to work on your technique. But don't play this if anyone's around you, you'll look like a terrible player!

Yamaha P-140
Précésents see the reviews and the site of yam
lack of other audio I / O for my taste.

UTILIZATION

The touch is heavy, in fact more than many acoustic pianos. me I'm fine. it allows muscles fingers. I certainly would use it for technical accuracy.

SOUNDS

I was pleasantly surprised by the sounds of piano, I expected worse given the views of others on the issue. But let's be clear: you will never render a very special acoustic fortunately, where happiness to continue playing on a real piano.

that said, this machine is certainly metal, but dosed more than its predecessors (I speak here of Clavinova and portable that I have tested).
the dynamic range, only the internal amplification is already interesting. it assumes good things in external amplification seen other reviews.

I find sufficient internal amplification. My u1 is nearly as powerful as that I speak here as an interpreter and not listener) cover open and it costs 7500 euros. one great thing: the key off, you always hear the effects of the table. harmony, it's great fun! else, the notion of spatial hearing: the speakers behind and before that avoid pushing the sound because the singers can not hear the sound, or lower because you can not hear the singers and other instrumentalists, an idea simple and brilliant that I have tested in September.
I do not mean that the other sounds of piano, I did not really like, yam would still have made an effort in that direction, too bad, right down to the note.

OVERALL OPINION

I tried it on one hour of Schumann (Scenes from Childhood), Mozart (Sonata called easy) and pieces of my composition. This was not enough to learn, but enough to realize it has possibilities. forget the classic if you are professional, except for small concerts in remote locations, but not agree to specialists.

I will say more after receipt and more intensive use, must first of all I order.

I've had two days. I find the same errors on my part expressiveness on the P140 as the u1 is a good sign .... it responds well, touch requires thorough without being blurry, I like it! his side, I can still play the Schumann by putting a small minimum Interpret, I can still not ask the richness of a real piano, it's impossible. put some review of the volume thoroughly blurred, there is not at all, it depends on the joint (fingers of course!), except that where some acoustic pianos "hide" a little this gap in interpreter (but unfortunately not the listener!), p 140 sends it to you in full face and that's fine, as you progress and commend the game in question! the piano is really solid and well finished, for now, I is suitable for all styles of music. attention: I think it is too subjective!
Today I have for two months. working "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story, I felt for the first time the harmonic limits of the beast, when we sounded different agreements quickly (last page, the last two systems of the song for those who know) , you feel the next synthetic samples, which is like a "voicing" finally something not really like the acoustic piano. it was a little disturbed at first but I no longer work on this machine as my technique and just for sound. after all, a joy on the sound, I return to my u1. The yam is like all digital sound in a beautiful appearance, and when you dig more than the attack of the sound and timbre, you can feel the machine. I can assure you, there is a very good investment, you've got the advice of a pianist confirmed.

Yamaha P-140
I do not possde this keyboard as I have given a northern course (other CATEGORY), it says APRS have tried a number of pianos is the best quality price ratio in its CATEGORY.
P85, p90: no line-out, zero electric piano sounds, the keyboard quality infrieure
Korg SP250: mdiocre quality feel and durability questionable.
Roland FP7: too heavy, if not excellent piano if you do not carry it alone.

P140: excellent touch and lightweight instrument (less than 20 kg), only Yamaha can do a. When the sounds are all convincing, it's got Obviously a matter of APRS.

Small BMOL: line fixed volume, it is thought may be to add a mixer when used in rp and scne

RaphRaymond's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha P-140
So it's a piano numrique touch heavy, 88 notes, midi in and out, one between a sustain pedals, pedals for a mute. The FC3 sustain pedals and power supply are provided.
There are 3 sounds of acoustic piano, electric keyboards over 3 vibraphone, church organ, harpsichord, strings mumuse what to do. There are 3 Galis, with a fixed 4 Sensitivity Settings, 4 reverbs, 4 effects.
There are two headphone output mini jack just below the critical line and output RCA, right and left. The headphones cut the sound from the speakers but not the line out. Line output level is fixed, the volume knob does not affect him.
It is a simple to use keyboard trs, there's a button for everything and for possible parameters just keep pressing the button paramtre (gender effect) and apuuy + or -. No no dr.

UTILIZATION

Touch is quite heavy, may be the heaviest of its class, some trouveron he is even too much, there are plenty of acoustic piano, which are lighter than cel. Bon muscle fingers, you better have a little too heavy and rgaler on a piano that is more lightweight plutt than the reverse.
Pressing buttons is lower than the P70 and P85, but they do not plastoc as the latter two, they are enjoyable to play and trs trs silent.

I took the stand L140, it is large enough and the white keys are then approximately 72/73cm the ground, get used a bit.

SOUNDS

Well, like usual, the sound of piano and keyboard are great. The organ goes well, the strings are chuckle ... nothing new.

There are three piano sounds Different. The first is clear and rich, a very modern classical sound that tends to have some resonance mtallique. The deuxime is a bit flat, it reminds me of those found in the PSR, a simple piano sound that pierces the mix, but without much personality. The troisime is my prfr it sounds a little too dull in the internal amplification of the P140, but the speaker has given a beautiful piano sound trs warm, ideal for playing Mozart or Chopin. Cel with legalization is available we can all play the piano, adding gloss ...
The harpsichord is trs cool.
Electronic keyboards are those found on the clavinova, it ragisse well VLOC saturating when we play hard, very enjoyable. The lack its type rhodes some extent and tend to do a little corner corner m'enfin is not much.

[EDIT] There are several available tempra which makes a third of fifths and pure trs, trs fair, but it is questionable whether the builders would not have too much increases the ct slightly imperfect tempra gal, some notes sound a little low, a vibration mtallique is heard when playing with C3 E4, or r3 with F # 4 ... Of not much but the fact of all the yamaha ... I'm wondering ...
It is not teacher, except when we know and that lingers on, if not in general play was going alone, gave the same body, some life on the piano .. . [/ EDIT]

OVERALL OPINION

In dpart I wanted a heavy piano numrique touch for less than 1000 ... Good that the 1000 is right in the store. Below there were compromises between the touch and sounds.
The P70 and P85 yamaha have great sound (yamaha. ..) but the touch that heavy and deep, was really plastoc under the fingers.
The Casio PX200 may be the keyboard that has the best touch below 1000, but sound may be the worst.
Roland is not really a heavy touch, finally say it's a little lightweight to be of heavy, and then it's pretty soft.
The Korg SP250 is not bad, good balance of everything, no real gap, but nothing special either, he did not charm ...
Well here I spent about two hours in a store for me DCID, the seller could not do it made me try this one the 'some a which is just above but a will may be you "Pile hair, I eat pasta and I pay more than 90 prvu is not very much.
Sound, touch as I really feel to be a good clavinova, weight and price within the transportabilit more.
I recommend everyone.

slouppie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha P-140
Unlike what has sometimes t said, I find that this keyboard is not a gas plant. It is very easy to use and, of course, it does not have much range of sonorits BUT the most important are really excellent quality.
For Dtail of connectivity, while adj t said.

USE

Yamaha touch, we like it or not, but anyway, it's very good. Worse than the kawa MP8 (2 times - cheap & 2fois - heavy), but a more realistic Roland in my opinion.
The configuration is bone simple, I confess I do not always understand some criticism against the p140 on this point. Any fawn, No normment of choice for the price it does not have a very rich library and it will make any manipulation esprer that enable a high-end product. But hey, if you search a mobile digital PIANO then the p140 seems to provide the best quality price ratio.
the manual is clear and complete.

SONORITS

As a pianist, I do not m'tendrai far and wide on the other sonorits.
For the piano:
the report sound and touch of the keyboard is very pleasant and realistic. Great possibilities of expression. In this price range I have not found better. The pianos grd 1 and 3 restaurants account for two temperaments very DIFFERENT between which I alternate depending on the mood of the moment or the song. p1 seems to me bright, crisp, sharp, emblematic of that sound mtallique yamaha we love or dteste. p3 is more round and sweet but keeps an equally great expressive ability. P2 is anecdotal. ame someone suggr (correctly) that c'tait probably a stooge for the other two.
otherwise, organs and harpsichords are good, other sounds appear less GPs me (I would not venture to use them solo)

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for about 1 month. It is lightweight and produces a perfectly satisfactory piano in concert, I'm not ashamed, even solo. Obviously amplification 2fois 6W (which is perfectly fine for home use) Here is everything rbarbative.
I tried various Roland. their keyboards seem a little lgers and "plastic rdibitoire for my personal taste (usage: jazz, classical, singer accompaniment). Kawai upscale (MP8) is much better, only catch 15 kg 1000 euros + heavy and high. Looking for a quality vritablement transportable instrument, the p140 responds my needs perfectly
It is for me the best ratio quality price for a mid-range product.

Yamaha P-140
-

UTILIZATION

I use scene and most of the time in my biensur produced quite heavy but the amplification is of good quality. Its advantage avoids connecting each time the mixing desk or other work or call especially, it has 2 headphone jack is still important especially if you work a four-hands.

SOUNDS

I am extremely happy with this product, the piano sounds for which I purchased this product are beautiful and realistic. Touch is quite realistic, this is my third keyboard, and then I'm not going to change so soon.

OVERALL OPINION

I do have two negative points:
-1 It broke down the 18th month fortunately it is still guaranteed, the problem is that it makes a sound extrememtn acute. This sound appears only on the sounds I use most strange is not it? It is being repaired is ca still feeling sick! I'll keep you posted
-2 After that it is connected to a mixer you are no longer the master of sound, sometimes on stage we increase the volume because we do not really mean! Désarois to the engineers there's ... well you can not, a volume is given automatically and is the mixer that order! So good or bad, I ca me some general representation with a guitar too loud and too quiet ... I had my taste
