Staff Member Justin Myerscough explains why this is possibly the best product around this price that you can buy for your budding keyboard/pianistsKeyboard route or Piano Route ?
The answer I believe is both, it doesn't have to be one or the other , if you go for a keyboard you miss out on the technique associated with Piano , if you go for just a Piano you miss out on so many facilities which far from being a gimmick will actually help, encourage the student to play more , enjoy it more , learn faster and ultimately become a better musician for it.
The DGX650 is the only product on the market around this price with this quality of Piano touch and sound combined with great educational features such as the score facility , composition facilities and storage with media transfer of up to date filetypes.
To beat this product, in my view you would have to go up in price to the Korg Havian ( Just under 1000 )
