Casio Celviano AP-450 Digital Piano
Yes, the new x60 range is out, but there's not any fundamental changes - the action and sound engine is unchanged, just some additional options.
The x50 range has been truly excellent - the new action that came in with the x50 range is common throughout the range (and the same in the new x60 range) and is well thought of, and easily a match for anything in this price range, and higher.
The AP-450 (and PX-850) are significant improvements in both the Celviano and Privia ranges (respectively) as polyphony is doubled (to 256) there's things like lid simulator, string / sympathetic resonance, key-off simulator, seamless sustain pedal.
A bargain at the RRP, but at this price (even understanding the x60 range is probably the reason behind these price drops) it's a steal.
Listed as from RockingRooster (Rimmers Music website), but also available on ChaseDirect - possibly others, and there's probably some price-matching deals to be had if you went in to your local music store.
