After using the Roland F-140r for a few weeks, and being a "new" piano player, here are my observations. 1 - It's a solid, quality instrument with loads of features for the price point. 2 - The keyboard action, hmmm, compared to similar priced Yamaha models it's "harder" to play, sorta. Definitely more like an acoustic piano but.. is that really what I needed? Not sure at this point.. 3 - The sound, while I do like it okay and it does have better speakers (on paper), I think I would have liked the brighter sound of the Yamaha better. I have hearing loss and the stronger , deeper sound of this isn't better in my case. If it was easy and didn't require additional shipping costs I'd think about swapping this one for a Yamaha. I DO like the features though and I don't regret moving to a fully weighted 88 key digital piano.
