It has a pure CF sound engine enables it to produce great tone that captures the attention of audience. Also, the score display allow pianists to put music notation of MIDI songs on screen.
This amazing Yamaha piano sounds like an acoustic piano, its GHS weighted action is heavier in the low register and lighter in the high. The Yamaha DGX660 digital piano is heavier compared to the Yamaha p-125 piano.

The Yamaha P45 piano features a built-in sound system which makes it easy to move around within your home and during an outside performance.
Just like the Yamaha DGX660, its GHS weighted action is much heavier in the low end and much lighter in the high end. I would rate this as one of the best digital piano for beginners.
This piano features a 76 keys portable keyboard which has all that’s needed in a starter keyboard, thereby, making it the perfect piano for a beginner. Note, this is more of a ‘keyboard’ than a digital piano. It has “touch sensitive” keys which are not as good as weighted keys for the a budding piano student.
It is good however for the budding musician who wants to play modern songs or sing along while playing.
It has lots of great functionalities such as; the on-board lesson which helps in supplementing piano lessons and the melody suppressor to soften lead vocal which enable players to sing while playing along with their favorite tunes.
