If the latter, then I'd definitely recommend the P515.

You're right, Mac. Exactly the same feel and spec apart from the audio system and cabinet. But it comes with an on/off pedal which is a tad niggardly.
The action on the 725/735 is lighter and imo better fwiw.

Well, I just ordered a white p515, along with its white stand and three pedal unit, and Sennnheiser 559. Damn, me and my son are condemned to never learn to play now I guess.
Next piano I'll buy will be a grand. Unfortunately I will almost certainly never have the funds for one.

Congratulation... I am sure that your son and you will enjoy this amazing piano and then, in a few years, a grand...

I had an older Yamaha P keyboard that broke down. Got a new P125. It's a rather quick decision. The store I bought the keyboard is partially open. They don't like people (even ones who are vaccinated) touching an instrument. You put in an order and pick it up the same day if the item is in stock.

I know for sure the P125 is an upgrade to something similar to the discontinued P255. The next up is the P515. I tested both of these over a year ago. At my level of playing (intermediate), I could have gone for a P515 but feel the higher price is unjustified.

Today I went to another music store. On display were 4 full-size keyboards: Roland P30, Yamaha P125, Casio Previa PXS1000 & Dexibell H10. The Roland, Casio & Yamaha are priced the same although the Roland has a higher suggested retail price meaning it has a bigger markdown. The Yamaha has the least markdown of the 3. The Yamaha P125 & Roland FP30 have similar heavy action and the keys are slightly higher. Don't know why. The Casio & Dexibell (supposedly from Italy) both have lighter action although all 4 models have weighted keys. Dexibell is the more expensive of the 4. Not sure if the higher price adds up to better performance.

After trying the 4 keyboards, played an acoustic Baldwin grand. The price of the Baldwin model is around US$10,000. The action is light similar to the Dexibell. Didn't find problems switching between these keyboards and the acoustic. When it comes to action, it comes down to heavier or lighter. The heavier action of a Yamaha or Roland would give your hands more workout. Some people prefer a heavier action while others like lighter action. The piano sampling & action is subjective. Need to play the same pieces on different keyboards in the store to pick out the preferred one.

No, the P-125 is a rebadge for the P-115 is a rebadge for the P-105 is a rebadge for the P-95 is an update for the P-85.

The next up is the P515.

The P-515 is the successor of the P-255, which is the successor of the P-155.

This is interesting topic. My main DP and practice is my Roland FP30. But my mobil/travel DP is the Casio CT-S1, world of a difference regarding action/feel. Every time I jump on the Casio it always feels odd and challenging compared to playing on my FP30. And I’m still a novice and learning the piano.

It’s unfortunate I can’t seem to find any 61-key with weighted keys. That’s on par with quality sound like my Casio.

Hey, you jumped at least 1000 iterations of the P series! Well they could be 10000, but you know... DP manufacturers are very slow...
