    Best Full-size (88 key) Piano Action Keyboard/Synth to buy ?

    I've owned several digital pianos including Yamaha CLP-560 and DGX-660. These, along with most keyboards today, are based on the old paradigm which has all the voices, sequencer, etc. hard-coded into the keyboard which is usually proprietary and rarely expandable or editable.
