Casio Privia PX-150 Digital Piano Bundle (Stand, Pedals, Stool, Bag, Headphones) £437.89 Delivered @ Chase Direct

4
Over £60 cheaper than the Rimmer deal, this is usually £499 without the wooden stand, pedal board and stool. I'd recommend it, at least at this price, as a starter instrument, as it does represent

Now showing as £499, so I suspect no longer cheaper than anywhere else.

Other online shops have slightly different bundles - this includes a bag, quite valid, given how easily portable the PX-150 is (it attaches to the proper stand by butterfly nuts, so is easily detachable for transit).

I guess, now, will come down to which varying blend of bundle items you want with the PX-150 (given the pukka stand and pedal board), as to which online retailer suits you best.

Hot deal, good price.

I wouldn't have a YDP-142 over this - but depends really. Action wise I'd definitely go with the Casio, the sound would have to be overwhelmingly better from the Yamaha to counter the better action of the Casio.

What actions are you thinking of with 4 sensors? Most current high end will still have 3, perhaps some may have optical. I've heard talk of some 4 sensor actions, but anything that would have, would be well beyond this segment of the market, or anything near it.

VPC1 is a 3 sensor action, isn't it? Even the very decent higher end Roland actions are still rocking 3 sensors.

The new Roland HP5 pianos have 4 sensors per key - they came out just as I was looking to buy a digital piano myself. Something about every key press sounding unique. Sounded impressive but expensive. Impressively expensive.
There's NOTHING in this area of the market with anything more than 3 sensors, realistically.

And Yamaha's GHS and GH / GHE action? Just 2.

They only get 3 sensors with the GHIII action and better. And what's the cheapest Yamaha with that in?

Now it's not all about one party trick, in terms of number of sensors. But all the same, one thing Casio have got right in their current ranges is the action - both in terms of the feel, and performance.

Having tried out various DPs of this type I can honestly say the AP series is a top notch line. Currently the X50 series is about to be discontinued in favour of the X60 series, and theyre offered at an incredible price right now. I never thought Id be going for a Casio again but these things are amazing!
Thankyou OP!!!
Really appreciate all the comments and advice from yourself and all other fellow members.
Last week I almost bought the AP250 with a fancy stool for £650 and I thought that was a bargain. After coming across this post, I've shopped around, made numerous calls and voila have bagged for my little girl an AP245 with an adjustable deluxe stool for £499 delivered!
Just goes to show how HUKD really does deliver :D

Just thought I'd drop a line of additional information. I spoke with a couple of music shops and the reason for the aggressive pricing is because the AP-245 is actually a US model that they had surplus supply of. As a result, it's been distributed around the world as a "limited edition" to clear out the stock.

Technically speaking, there is no difference between the AP-245 and the AP-250 but for the price and while it's available, it's certainly not something to turn your nose up at. I'm hovering over the "Buy Now" button right now. Just want to pop into Costco first before I commit to see if they've got any.

Enjoy!

Well there's all sorts of rumours - but as far as I know, I've not seen it advertised or sold in the US.

The spec is identical to the AP-250, so it's almost certainly just a badge engineered version. If that's because they had surplus stock of the AP-250 in the US, well I guess it's a possibility, but oddly enough, in other forums, I've read several comments about people in the US struggling to buy / find current models from the Celviano range.

The story I heard was that they wanted to boost sales and clear sales from the Celviano range (maybe the AP-250 hadn't sold that well compared with the AP-450 and AP650) and wanted to undercut Yamaha.

Truth be told, although I think the AP-250 is very fairly priced, and a very decent digital piano, that easily stacks up to the equivalent Yamaha, if I was thinking of an AP-250 at the prices they sell at, I'd spend that bit extra and get an AP-450.

My gems from the Celviano range are the AP-245 and AP450. There's nothing that's important to me with the 650 over the 450, and for the limited time the 245 is available, you'd be nuts to by a 250.
