Casio Celviano AP-450 Digital Piano for £689.00 (delivered) @ rimmersmusic

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…

Cheers for the help OP, bought the piano from Rimmers Leyland ex display for £599
I just brought the same keyboard for £599 in FairDeal Music in Birmingham City Centre store sale. Vey happy with the cheaper deal.
Best to call them first as it was a store only offer.

But that said, had there been an AP-450 for £689 at the time, I would have stretched myself again.But that said, it really does depend on any wiggle room in budget.
sort of agree but if the OP is stretching an allready stretched budget to £700 I'd recomend a visit to a local music store as there'll be more models in budget availale.
Won't make any difference.Nothing from any of the other makes, will get near the AP-450, for £689.Don't get me wrong - it's not all about pure spec - because if it was, nothing would truly get near either for the price (consider polyphony, action, number of sensors, or the other value-adds from the Celvianos). Even accounting for peoples' preferences and inherent subjectivity, the x50 series (both Privia and Celviano) has been warmly received - well from everyone who doesn't have a pre-existing bias against Casio.

Possibly last years model's reduced or an ex display at a local music shop (obviously only if the OP lives near one with a good selection) No point going in with £300 but if you have £700 burning a hole in your pocket he may have more options dont you agree?
No.

I don't think you'd get anything like as good for £700.

Casio are already producing very competitive models at their RRP. None of the other makes are producing triple sensor actions at these price points.

What sort of other digital piano you think you could get at a sale price of around £700 that's got anywhere near the spec of the AP-450?

Even better, another £10 off now... this game of will I / won't I is starting to get a bit tense!

Great deal. Very tempted.
Indeed - I'd buy one in a heartbeat, had I not already got an AP-245, and a PX-150 (bought a few months back when the bundles were being sold with the stand and pedal board).

For the money, an absolute steal. Really good action (many people buy PX-150s to use as a midi controller and use a software piano), the PX-850 has all the improvements / additions to the sound engine that their entry level stuff doesn't have (string / sympathetic resonance, key-off simulator, and lid simulator). Decent power output, and since having my PX-150, I've come to appreciate digital pianos in these very modern / contemporary type stands.
Great deal. Very tempted.
This is a promo of Max Tempia playing the equivalent Celviano model (the AP-450) - which is the same as the PX-850, just packaged a little differently in a more traditional cabinet.

Are there any deals for the PX350? I think it has better connectivity options than the PX150,which suits me as I want to connect it to a music PC & speakers
I haven't seen any bundles offered for the PX-350 - but that said, I haven't really looked.

It does have better connectivity, I think it has true midi connectivity (as well as USB midi) plus true line ins and line outs. PX-150, AP-245 / AP-250 and PX-750 just have USB midi and headphone sockets.

If it's just pure midi and audio, then many do similar with more basic connectivity using USB midi and take audio from one of the headphone outputs.

The PX-350 is more Casio's mid-level stage digital piano (the PX-5S is their step above that, but don't think it has any onboard speakers, purely a stage piano), whereas the PX-150 is more the entry level one. Both share the same action, and have the same polyphony and sound engine though. But the PX-350 has loads more sounds and rhythms, slightly more power, and slightly better speakers. And generally, not really that much more expensive than the PX-150. It's the bundles, really, that make the PX-150 a bargain.

They've all got very decent actions, and modern sound engine (AiR is a notable improvement over their previous sound engine, but the action is the biggest step up for them).

So I suppose it depends on exactly how you want to connect it up, really. If you're just connecting to a PC for midi, merely having USB on the PX-150 isn't that much of a restriction. But depending on how you want to connect to speakers may be.

I plan to connect the Casio to a Roland Edirol audio interface, which has both digital and analago outputs that I could use to an amplifier. As a result the speaker (and sound) limitations on the PX150 compared to teh PX350 don't really make a difference to me, but the sound quality will.

What I am not clear about is how the headphone jack outputs the sound. As opposed to the PX350, where there are 2 LINE In and 2 LINE Out, the PX150 only has a headphone jack. How would this affect the sound quality ? Thanks
I'm not sure how much of an impact using headphone output, rather than line-out would affect sound quality.

Ignoring the connections, for a second, the sound engine in the PX-150 and PX-350 is the same (albeit, the PX-350 has much, much more in terms of other sounds, plus there may be some other options to tweak it). So both set to Concert Grand Piano (using the preselect), with no other changes to the sound, and both outputting using the headphone output, the sound should be, to all intents and purposes, identical.

This dp was so well reviewed I paid this same price about a year ago. It was without any of the expensive extras in this deal... Outstanding digital piano in this (and in almost any) price range compared to what was available until casio made the new x50 dp range. No way you can be disappointed with this one. Well spotted. Hot.
Indeed - I bought one, recently, taking advantage of this bundle. And at the turn of the year bought an AP-245 when that deal was on.

The AP-245 was an absolute bargain at the time, but in real terms is fundamentally the same piano as the PX-150, so the advantage then, was getting a full cabinet digital piano (plus whatever was doing the rounds in terms of a bundle).

The PX-150 is excellent at it's price point, really, there's nothing else that's quite as good for the money.

This isn't good value for money at all. It's an ok bundle price, but compared to other products, it's not worth it. There are still some AP-245 models around at this price.

EDIT: Also, never buy a piano before trying it!

EDIT 2: Cheaper here

Just to point out, that is no longer cheaper, it's now £499, so the deal - whether you choose to go to a real, bricks and mortar store, or online retailer, or get another music store to price match, is going to come down to convenience, preference, and the particular bundle add-ons that suit you.

Found this completely at random and it seems to be a great price. Next cheapest I could find was £3.94 at Amazon.

Looks a bit like the one I got last year at MCM expo, I had to remember how many playable songs there were in Ocarina of Time to win it!

...It's 13 by the way :p
You would really need a ceramic one to get a decent sound out of it, this one is a bit like playing the recorder.
