The Best Digital Piano in the World?

QUICK TIP: My call on the best digital piano 2010

A lot of people ask me this question: what do I consider to be the best digital piano on the market?

Obviously, as I've said a number of times, 'best' is a subjective concept and relates to the player, budget and experience.

However, I'm going to have a bash at giving a clear and definitive answer on what I consider to to be the greatest digital piano that money can buy.

First let's take a look at some of its technical specs:

    * Revolutionary 'living' piano core that breaks the digital-sampling barrier in a stand-alone instrument
    * Stunning pianos onboard, from grand-piano classics to never-before-heard futuristic hybrids
    * All pianos are customizable
    * Newly-developed 88-note PHA-III Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement
    * Analog (XLR and 1/4 inch) outputs, digital output (coaxial), USB Memory port and MIDI I/O

And the official product description from the manufacturer:

The Piano RedefinedSince 1972, Roland has pioneered many groundbreaking technologies and 'world's first' products. In recent decades, no family of Roland instruments has won more respect and acclaim than the revolutionary 'V' series – V-Accordion, V-Bass, V-Drums, V-Guitar, and V-Synth. Today, Roland proudly announces the next chapter in the V legacy…the V-Piano. Throw away all preconceived notions of what a digital piano was and is. This instrument changes everything.Features* Revolutionary 'living' piano core that breaks the digital-sampling barrier in a stand-alone instrument* Stunning pianos onboard, from grand-piano classics to never-before-heard futuristic hybrids* All pianos are customizable* Newly-developed 88-note PHA-III Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement* Analog (XLR and 1/4 inch) outputs, digital output (coaxial), USB Memory port and MIDI I/OBreaking BarriersThe V-Piano soars above the limitations of past technologies with its revolutionary 'living' piano core, allowing every note to respond and evolve naturally, seamlessly, and perfectly without requiring samples.

I first played one in a music shop in London a couple of years back and I was totally hooked. I could go on and on about WHY I think it's the best but I believe the only way you can possibly get a feel for the depth and value of this machine is to actually stand behind one and start playing.

Clearly at the price, it's a piano for those with deeper pockets. But is the Roland V worth the money? Here's my short review….

YES!!!
