I love this because it very easy to carry for a woman and the sound output is amazing!
.Its got a lot of features that will keep me busy for years.
.I bought this keyboard as a replacement for an older PSR series keyboard. It has a lot of the same sounds that the earlier one but a lot more also. This is a good keyboard for overall general purpose sounds and accompaniment. I am using this so that I can lay down keyboard pads for recordings that I do.
.I've only had a little time to try my 453 but the sound is fabulous. The styles and voices so great. has hit one out of the ballpark! It is a joy to have this.
.I bought this keyboard to "Jam" with my new banjo. The deal maker was the free headphones, which silence the keyboard when plugged in, just right for use at our condo. I give it 5 stars for the build quality, multiple good tones and ease of adding music via smartphone or computer. For the marketers reading this review; It's time to design a micro USB connection or better yet a wireless smartphone connection. YEEE HA !
.Bought this board to replace a psr e403 which had an annoying processing high pitched buzz in the headphone output when plugged into an amplifier or effects module. This board has just a tiny bit of white noise that barely needs a noise gate. It also has the new effects feature which is very nice. The rotary effect is what I really wanted and it is ok but not stellar. Going into my boss me80 it is entirely acceptable and into my combo amp also entirely acceptable. Will gig with it new years eve soon. Great piece.
