The Yamaha P-80 is also my first choice in what I reccomend to my customers. At a selling price of $999.00, 37 lbs. great piano sounds, electric piano sounds, split voices and a great hammond organ with leslie effect which can be varied, it is hard to beat. My other choice for the same price would be the generalmusic Pro 1 piano. It is also 64 voice poly, a hammer weighted action keyboard, great sounds, and a really cool feature called natural string resonance which duplicates a real piano when you hold down notes and play notes in other ranges, but still here the sympathetic vibrations of the undamped strings. The price is also $999.00 though it weighs about 50 lbs. If You want something that looks more like a real piano, the Yamaha YPD 101 is very nice for $999.oo. It has a wood cabinet, three pedals, nice speakers built in, but only 8 sounds and the action is not as good as the other two. It is weighted, but not hammer weighted so it feels lighter.
