ecceccecc's review"User-friendly fun"

Yamaha DGX-205
The DGX-205 is a keyboard that I call "user-friendly fun", because it's VERY easy to use (you don't even need the manual to start using it) and VERY fun to play.
I got one of those as an "emergency solution". In the end of 2004, my old Technics keyboard got badly damaged and the authorized service couldn't afford with that (remember: Technics stopped to manufacture keyboards at all just the year before, 2003). Because of that, I was with no keyboard. Although I was on vacation, I couldn't wait too much to buy a new one, but my budget also wasnt't that high. Since I was playing mostly piano at the time, the DGX-205 fit well due to its nice acoustic piano sound and its 76 touch-sensitive keys.
Although it's a beginner-oriented keyboard, it can be used by professionals too, since it works well as a master controller for software sequencers and some VSTi plugins - also as itself, if you're a pianist and want a really lightweight instrument. I even used it on big events with a band. The lack of MIDI IN/OUT and Line OUT is the only minor thing, IMHO - although it may be not a real problem nowadays.
Too bad it was the last 76-key instrument from the DGX series with a nice keybed - from DGX-305 on, the keys were way too much fragile for my taste. If I wanted to get a DGX today and the options were 205 and 305, I'd choose the 205 just because of the better keys.
So it's an overall nice keyboard for both beginners and pro keyboardists.

Yamaha DGX 205, arranger keyboard, lattes and keys full polyphony yada yada yada ... in short a stew plastoc!


This is the style keyboard that is constantly renewed x months later with a particular function in addition, the basic blah, but for a child who dbute is just passable with a function to read his own score in real time, laser guns sounds and the "quack quack" Duck, otherwise the edition is really boring ...


The sounds are shit ...
The worst is the sounds of "piano" that are truly null in void, touch latte not the situation improves, pregnant saturate ds you push the volume ...
A council do not buy this keyboard!

This is an arranger keyboard 76 keys high performance at a price low enough.
The USB interface is not very developed but you can do so many things with the computer is useless ...


As for the sound I find you can really excel and do what you want with ...
It is very easy to use and the manual is very well done ...
I bought it six months ago and it always ends up not surprise me ...
There are so many possibility's possible ...


This is a great synth for someone who will use it at home for fun ...
on the other hand when it comes to play classical piano or take classes and play it I advise you to take a keyboard with a semi-heavy.
