      I still can't figure out the functions, but I'm learning slowly.

      I had a 23 year old Clavinova, so I knew I wanted a Yamaha. This had everything I was looking for and more.

            This keyboard is the newest version of the world renown YP250 which has been a standard on stage and in studios for years. Yamaha came out with the 255 that's 20 lbs lighter and smaller...making it even easier to work with. They dropped weight and ADDED features making this keyboard a whole new level of AWESOME! The new iOS app feature allows for control over your sounds from your smartphone or iPAD. Onboard EQ allows you to control your tone before it even gets to the sound guy. Bravo Yamaha....Bravo!

                  This piano is noe of the best upgrades Yamaha has made yet. This is twenty pounds lighter than its predecessor. That's over two babies. The cut out that weight and yet ADDED features. Don't know how they did it, but I'm glad they have. One thing they added was the iOS app feature. With the app you can control your sound and functions right from your iPhone or iPad. The weighted keys immitate a real piano and the key tops absorb moisture so you can play longer. The EQ sliders make this amazing so you do not need to get the sound engineers attention and you can control it yourself and feel confident you will get the sound you want.

                    I didn't think they could improve upon the older P-155, but they did! I so wish I would have waited to buy this instead. As an owner of their now discontinued P-155, I must say that this thing feels and sounds amazing. Don't get me wrong, I have been more than satisfied with my keyboard, but you have to give this thing its credit.

                    Having an EQ on the front where you can adjust your tone on the fly is an amazing feature lacking from their older model. This thing was meant for giging! Whether you're a pro or you're just starting out, this keyboard, you would own for life. Please....demo this thing today if you're considering a new digital keyboard. It sells itself!

                    Not only does this keyboard feel like a real piano, it sounds like one too. It's slimmer, lighter design allows you to take it anywhere. The 3 band slider EQ customizes your sound in any room you may find yourself and the iOS app gives you even more control over you sound.

                      This digital piano is incredibly reaslistic, not only with the response of the keys, but the actual texture of their surfaces. It feels like you are playing real ivory keys, and they respond very much like an acoustic piano would. The EQ sliders are a nice addition, so you can customize your tone based on the sound system you are playing through. It also interfaces with iOS devices flawlessly to get more control over your sound than any piano I have played.
