Summary: This is my first 88 key keyboard so take my ratings as a grain of salt. I have not experienced many keyboards out there so I wanted to make that known. But the Korg Sp170s is perfect for my needs. Its simple, sounds great, no bells and whistles. Just a simple piano keyboard for me to learn how to play. It does have a few other sounds other than the grand piano in which I will rarely use. But its nice to have for some variation.
Summary: Got this to replace a casio wk200. While it doesn't come with a ton of tones and features, it has great feel and sound. I love that it has a midi port in the back. It works great as a controller. Wish it had a 1/4 inch output, but the headphone jack can be used to hook up an amp. Feels like an instrument and not a toy like alot of keyboards do.
Summary: I'm new to piano, and the Korg SP-170 is a perfect starter keyboard. The keys are weighted just lke a piano. I also like the fact that I can plug a midi cable from the keyboard to my iMac, which works with the piano software I purchased (separately). zzounds is easy to do business with as well. I'd say the only draw back is that after the keyboard came I realized I needed a stand (putting it on a table didn't work for the correct hand positioning) and the midi cable.
Summary: Just can't say enough about this instrument. When I read it had the sound of a grand piano I was skeptical, to say the least, but the the sound is phenomenal and may even have a better sound than my sister's grand. The instrument is well made and durable and is ideal for someone who wants the sound of a piano without the size and weight of a conventional piano or the extra sound features that some with some digital models.
Summary: This is a great deal! Close your eyes and you would have no idea that a baby grand is not before you. I have been totally impressed with the sound and quality for the price. My home space is limited and I would be cramped with a true piano. The size fits perfectly. The sound selections are impressive. You can even adjust your touch on the stroke of the piano. I am still learning what all of my options are. You won't go wrong with this purchase.
Summary: I've been using Korg products for over 25 years as a professional recording producer, composer, and musician. This is a great keyboard, not only for its weighted keys, sounds, and capability to be utilized in the professional arena; but it is also beneficial for the college student needing something at home to practice for those intense piano proficiency exams. This is a must have for all, and I wouldn't recommend any other!!
Summary: This is a GREAT BUY! Shipping was fast and arrived when it was due. I've been playing on an old Schaff Baby Grand for months but was about to move to another city. I researched online for months on trying to find the best deal and quality out there. The piano has a nice feel and is very sensitive! Of course, the weighted keys do not make it feel like it does on a real piano, but it comes closer than most I've played with the given price range so far!
