CVP 505

TH, Yamaha
16 April 2013
  • Summary: I have been enjoying to play. The realistic voices of Yamaha grand piano, other musical instruments, and styles. The manual book has limited or unclear instructions to use for example "Song Creator" program. I had to ask, emails to Yamaha technicians (Calif.) to support. The "Song Creator" program does not allow me to add 1 more style (Bolero, then Tango), and to "Register" instead.
  • Pros: Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys

Great Instrument - poor execution

CJ, Yamaha
25 February 2013
  • Summary: very difficult info to understand re: internet access including music finder. Customer support techy but not tuned in to helping the non tech user who wants to use the instrument to its fullest & the way it is marketed. Very surprised to hear that most do not take advantage of downloads and internet access -I'mm still floundering with this!!!
  • Pros: Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action

What's Good What's Not

CJ, Yamaha
1 February 2013
  • Summary: great instrument but very poor service and instructions on how to utilize internet capabilities. Needed lots of help to get laptop connected and to get wireless USB working... Need to provide better instructions and support to new users. video's are helpful but lack sufficient detail as to "how to do" vs. "what it can do" - Music Finder is not described properly and is misleading.
  • Pros: Pre-programmed music, Realistic Sound, Variety
  • Cons: Poor Instructions
