- (October 20, 2004) I was able to put together an entire Yamaha Home Theater system working with on-line vendors. Sounds cheap right......wrong! I purchased Yamaha's HTR-5660 receiver, which puts out a modest 85 watts RMS across 6 channels. Yamaha has always had a reputation for top quality electronics, at all price points. However, speakers were never their forte. Then came the new NS and HX series speakers in 2003. The center piece of my system is two NS-777's mated with a Yamaha SW315 subwoofer. I also have a Yamaha NS-C444 front center channel speaker and two NS-333's in the rear. I have not yet purchased a rear center channel. This system is awesome. All the speakers are tone/voice matched and
- (March 10, 2006) I have owned this piano for over a year and I like the touch and the sound so it has been good for practice. I recently used it for Ivory pianos and I found the noisy keys to be distracting. Also, when I was on a gig I would have to use the headphone jacks to connect to a PA system. I gave the P-70 to my grand daughter to help her with her lessons and went to the P-155 which unfortunately is heavier but does not have the noisy keys and the other features I feel are important. I would still recommend this piano (or the P95) because Yamaha have done a great job with the feel and the sound for a reasonable price.
- (February 07, 2006) If you are looking for an inexpensive practice piano or a very lightweight portable stage piano, this is an excellent buy. You simply can not buy a fully weighted 88-key keyboard for less than this. You will not find a better action or sound for less than $1000. This piano is the replacement for the Casio PX-100 and its main improvements are an improved action and an improved piano sound. The action is heavier than the old PX-100. It is also a heavier action than the Korg Triton or an old Roland I play at church. In my opinion, the action was more realistic than either the Roland or the old PX-100. Compared to the Korg, it is a toss-up as it is a matter of personal taste on what type of f

- (09/12/2013) I've used my radio triggers on a variety of assignments so far, and they work flawlessly. The backlit channel indicator is simple but effective- I was able to verify and set the channels while working in complete darkness. The build quality is superb- I especially appreciate the shielded antenna. I have no doubt these will continue to work as advertised for many years to come. I have no need for the extra functionality of the higher priced models, so these work perfectly. I use them to trigger remote strobes, and they more than get the job done.
- (09/10/2013) Installation went smoothly with no hickups. I use it with HDMI for live HD streaming with UStream Producer. You really need to understandthe format of the signal coming in and set it manually in the software preferences. Oh and it defaults to SDI! There is no plug-and-play in this respect. E.g. my DSLR outputs 1080i and I need to set it in preferences to see the picture. If I change DSLR to 720p, corresponding change has to be made as well. I intend to investigate its use for recording.
