Value For Money : Excellent
88 keys, weighted keyboard. Piano sound and several other basic sounds (electric piano, harpsichord, strings, church organ, vibraphone)
No audio output apart from headphones (stereo minijack). Midi in and out (but no midi through), jack input for sustain pedal.

UTILIZATION

The keyboard is adapted to the piano sound (for the price, they spared no expense). The rest of the sound are only accessory, and for the price they deserve a very good mark. The few settings available are described on the instrument itself, it's not necessary to read the manual to find them. There are certain "advanced" options (like the reverb adjustment on the piano) that require a more complex manipulation (and therefore are hard to find without the manual), but I have never made use of them.

SOUNDS

The piano sound is all in all very good. The electric pianos are OK as well. The rest are only toys. Keyboard dynamics is adapted to the piano sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I have used it (on and off) for six years, but most of all as a master keyboard. I looked at other 88-key master keyboards, but its feel convinced me (especially given its price at the time...).
A major disadvantage: very limited connections: it lacks midi through and a real audio output. But hey, it does the job...
