Are you sure you have tried a legal vArranger version? smile

I have vArranger and don't find that to be true at all.

The Varrange with the lates sound sets sound as good as the TOTL arenagers curently available..

Your friend might have set the program up wrong...

I don't say vArranger soundset sounds as good as all the TOTL smile
But you can get a good compatibility with most of the style and complete your soundset with some best quality VST instruments, like a grand piano that sounds better than any hardware arranger

hardware arrangers used to add some FX like disto on guitars that adds some realism to the sound. This part still need a bit improvements in vArranger

I, too, have vArranger and I don't have the same issue, either.

You can allways use VST's for the guitars and DSP effects..

Altough, if you have a hardware keybaord with USB audio support like the Yamaha Montage or Korg Kronos, its as easy to make VST's part of your setup as in Varranger.

Sadly there is no Arranger key yet that has Audio over USB support.

To me, the Casio seemed a little 'heavy' (ponderous, thick, too full, don't know quite how to describe it) but definitely not 'bad', just probably not my first choice among those three. But as we always say, it's purely subjective, and all sounded really good (the Casio being 'killer' at it's price point). Of course, key feel can not be demonstrated in a Youtube video, so it IS important to go to the store and play one.

I'm still up in the air and spending lots of time (too much smile ) checking out Youtube demos and reading comments of all the models mentioned in this class of digital piano. Thanks for your input. Still loving the SEVEN but still trying to adjust to it's keyboard action. Not quite there yet.

Casio is no longer your grand children' toy keyboard. When a person buys a Casio, he or she doesn't pay for the "name" but instead you get more quality and features for the money.
