The PSR-E343 offers the built-in Yamaha Education Suite, which enables students to teach themselves piano as well as built-in accompaniment styles that make it possible to sound like full bands. USB TO HOST connectivity makes interfacing with personal computers and Apple iPad/iPhone/iPod touch easy. The PSR-E343 also adds an AUX line input and Melody Suppressor so players can perform the lead part in their favorite songs stored on MP3 players.
For more seasoned music makers, these versatile models can also be used as MIDI controllers for computers and high performance sound sources for XG-lite music software applications.
The PSR-E343 keyboard offers built-in speakers featuring the Ultra-Wide Stereo DSP button that creates greater separation and a more spacious sound. It provides players with 550 voices and 136 accompaniment Styles. In addition, Yamaha offers iOS/Apple music apps for iPhone/iPad and iPod Touch that extend and enhance the music-making experience. Connections to iOS devices require the optional i-UX1 USB MIDI interface cable.
Additional features include a new power-saving mode and 61 full-sized keys. These affordable models also let users play along with a band or use the dedicated Portable Grand button to instantly call-up a great sounding grand piano.
In addition to AUX line input, the PSR-E343 has touch sensitive keys for expressive, piano-style playing and a more powerful speaker system for a fuller sound.
Note: This keyboard does not ship with batteries or a power supply. We enthusiastically recommend the Yamaha SK-B2 Survival Kit, which contains the appropriate power supply for your keyboard, as well as a set of headphones, a footswitch, an extended warranty, rebate coupons and helpful software. #H65815

I purchased this entry level for my daughter and she loves it so much I can't get her to stop playing. The only discrepancy that I have it that for a 7 year old it is hard to follow lessons on such a small screen. But I have not tried to hook it up to the TV yet. Again great product for the $$$
Great price, very light weight. Lots of fun. Only complaint is that the songbook is a bit dated and no power adapter.
I bought this keyboard not knowing that it doesn't come with a power adapter or power cord of any kind so had to order that separately. $11.99 Then when that came I was finally able to turn it on and discover my pedal didn't work with it. I purchased the FC3 Yamaha pedal thinking they would be compatible since they are both Yamaha products, but that is NOT the case. It works with the FC4 or FC5, or the Live Wire listed as an accessory.
First let me say that when Guitar Center says they will beat anyone's price, they are not kidding. That is what they did for me on this keyboard. That being said, I was looking for a small Yamaha Keyboard that would have at least on the voices that I have on my larger YPG-235. The one especially that I was looking for was the Cool Rotary Organ sound that sound like you are playing a Hammond B3 Organ. Since I needed a smaller sized keyboard for stage use, I decided that this one was the one I needed. Since we are a 2 piece group and play smaller venues, I needed something that would give me Big Sound when playing through our Yamaha board and powered PA speakers. Well I'll tell you how big the sound is, I was using the Pipe Organ voice and through the system it sounded like we were in a movie theater or church. My grandson told me he and his brother thought I have a "real" organ in the music room, but no, it was just this great little keyboard. It looks great, it sounds great, seems very durable and does everything I need. Thank you Guitar Center.
