Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The keyboard stores your effect settings for each of the 12 sounds in memory, so they’ll be restored when you choose that sound again or turn the keyboard off. These are likely to be less important and useful for a beginner than basic sounds, though effects might appeal to those looking for an inexpensive performance piano.
Touch response is used to control the level of the voice depending on your playing strength. That means the harder you play the keys, the greater volume comes from the speakers.
12 good-quality instrument sounds, realistic piano tones, Onboard MIDI recorder, Music stand with adjustable height, Can be powered with 6 D-cell batteries

What reviewers didn't like

As with the Yamaha, there’s only one headphone output, and it’s on the back panel. Using two headphones will require a splitter.
1 Sustain pedal input (1/4″) to connect sustain pedal (not included). Unfortunately you will not be able to connect other pedals or 3-pedal unit to Recital Pro
Keyboard is not graded (same weighing across the whole keyboard range ), Slightly bulkier than competitors (depth: 13.8” vs around 11”), No built-in songs to practice
