It’s a portable digital piano, which makes it perfect for people with limited space for a piano. At just around $800, it’s perfect for those on a budget.
But is it a Good Buy?
Check out these features so you can see for yourself if it’s a good buy:
Its sound was upgraded to make it more like an acoustic piano. The recording and playback features are CD-quality. It’s a PureCF-sampled piano, which means that it was sampled from the CFIIIS concert grand which is very popular all over the world. This is pleasantly surprising considering that this feature is commonly found on more expensive pianos.
Also, this means that you don’t have to buy the very expensive and large (at 9 feet) CFIIIS concert grand just to enjoy the sound that it produces. It has full 128-note polyphony. This is twice more than the DGX640. In addition, it also has more voices at 543 voices and more styles at 195 styles.
There’s also a feature that allows you to easily find the right music style based on the keystrokes that you’re making. This is a highly intelligent feature and a highly accurate one at that. It has the Graded Hammer Standard action that provides you with a grand piano playing experience. This is because it provides a more natural touch response. It has large speakers that are directed to the front. Use it in front of an audience and it wouldn’t matter. These speakers can easily fill a room with a grand piano level of music.
It’s Perfect for Beginners and Experts
Dane Madsen, who is the Marketing Manager for the Digital Piano department of Yamaha, said that this is an ensemble piano that would-be pianists will appreciate. Those looking to improve their musical skills can use this. It’s also perfect for those who dream of being a part of a band.
Dane Madsen also said that with this model’s long list of impressive features, even expert players can take advantage of the DGX650B.
It’s Perfect for Showing Off
As mentioned, it has large speakers that can easily fill a room, which is helpful if you plan on performing in front of family, friends, or even a paying audience. It also has good connectivity features that allow you to easily share your recordings to other people. With its CD-quality recordings, you’ll be proud to share your recordings. Send them via email. Upload them on YouTube. Share your recordings to the world.
Play with your Favorite Artists
While you won’t be literally playing with popular artists, this has an optional series of songbooks aptly named “You are the Artist” that allows you to play along with songs of popular artists like Johnny Cash, Coldplay, Adele, Taylor Swift and more. You can also use this feature to learn from these popular artists. With this feature, you can be part of the band, as this feature will get the keyboard part of the songs from the DGX650B (which you’ll be playing) while it plays the other parts.
In addition, you can slow down the songs if you want to learn better. You can just speed up the tempo as you improve. Soon enough, you’ll be playing as if you’re part of the band of your favorite artists.
This is a good buy since it’s affordable and has a long list of good features. It’s also made by Yamaha which is a comforting thought.
