I went for the Korg B1, a basic no thrills digi piano with weighted keys. The piano sound is quite good but I'm not that impressed with the harpsichord sound on it.
I've just had a look at the Yamaha P45 demo video. Apart from the 'strings', which I never like, the harpsichord sounded poor on that too. Also they don't show you the hammond organ sound, so I'd want to see an explicit list before buying that one.
Hmm, actually, I'm glad we've had this thread, as, after checking it out on Youtube, I think I'd want something better than the P45! I remember liking its predecessor, except that that only had 72ish keys.
Some of the sounds Yamaha are offering are not genuine sounds to my ears - they are "this is a sound that an American soap opera or sitcom would call a harpsichord" conventional sounds.
It really doesn't help that the demo pianists are only capable of rock-opera, crassical, sub-Carole-King tv background music sludge.
