While I've been GASing for the SV-1, this new little keyboard might be more practical than something over twice it's price.

It might be the one I played last Friday at GC. If so, the feel is really nice and the piano sounds incredibly accurate.

I went back and realized I played it's predecessor, the SP-250. It sounds great. The reviews on the 280 are positive.
Birthday in 2 months... Hmmm.
