    As reviewed by Chris on 7/23/2015

    I bought the P-255 in the hope of having a portable version of my beloved Yamaha Clavinova. I wanted a simple stage piano with good samples but not too many bells and whistles (I can always add those with the DAW). The sounds on the Clavinova are way, way better than those on the P-255, and the Clavinova is about 10 years old now. The P-255 sounds tinkly and very cheap, and actually is painful to listen to in the higher register, especially an octave and a half above middle C. (I thought maybe it was just me, and so I asked my wife, but she agreed.) The four offered piano sounds are pretty much equally bad. Fiddling with the on-board EQ did not help much. Their electric piano sound is also not nearly as good as the one on the Clavinova. Yamaha went from great to terrible, in my estimation - why use such cheap, tinny sounding samples? So before you buy this, I'd suggest borrowing a really good set of headphones from the salesperson (those stores are usually noisy!) and make sure you can live with these sounds. Everything else about the piano, I like - two headphone jacks (for teacher and student), it's relatively light weight, and the keys feel good. Such a shame they did this with the samples. I guess the one silver lining is that, because there's essentially no bass, you are unlikely to be able to disturb the neighbors with this.

  • Great piano

    As reviewed by Kim on 6/23/2014

    I haven't utilized all of its functionality yet, but so far I love it. My main desire was for a digital keyboard that felt, played, and sounded like a real piano, and this one satisfies very well. I know it can do a great deal more, but for now I'm stuck on just playing and enjoying having a piano in the house again. Love the white, it's very sleek.
