Yamaha DGX-640 Review
The Yamaha DGX-640 is an exceptional digital piano but without a Yamaha DGX-640 review there would be no way to know if all the features that you want are there.
When you are shopping for a digital piano if you are a beginner you may not have a complete grasp of what all the features mean.
Of course if this is not your first rodeo then you likely are well aware of what you are looking for.
Some of the things that you should look for are:
- 88 keys being the standard
- Speakers – Is that an important feature for you?
- Number of Polyphony – The higher the better
- Touch sensitivity
- Touch response
- Number of controls
All of the above are important considerations, especially for a beginner. A lot of beginners get “caught up” in the things that really do not affect play.
They look for the bells and whistles but do not take the time to look at the important things like the number of polyphony (the number of notes that a digital piano plays).
If you do not plan on want to buy an amp than having internal speakers will be an important feature to you.
If you do not mind buying an amp as a tradeoff for getting the features that you want than having internal speakers is no big deal.
Good quality weighted keys are always a recommendation for both beginners and experienced players.
Of course having 88 keys would be most like playing an acoustic piano. The keys should have a good range of touch sensitivity and respond naturally.
The number of controls is actually not as important as the features that the controls, control. Did that sound a little confusing?
In other words, when you are looking at a digital piano look at the features that it is stocked with, don’t get distracted by the number of controls or LED screen.
Let’s Take a Look at How the Yamaha DGX-640 Measures Up with Features
We have to start by saying that the Yamaha DGX-640 comes with a couple of things that you normally do not get when you purchase a digital piano.
Most digital pianos will come with the power adapter and a music stand BUT the DGX-640 offers the piano stand and foot pedal as well.
Typically, you would be responsible for buying the foot pedal separately as well as the piano stand. These are very nice add on’s.
