1) "All in all I thought the Korg PA 588 is a great keyboard"

I didn't know whether to buy the Korg or Roland? After long deliberation and
spending hours reading the reviews and countless visits t
o various music
shops
I purchased the Korg PA 588 a digital keyboard with weighted keys

At 25 Kg not really a portable instruments but a very good purchase for the
following reasons:

Korg PA 588 is not cheap (£1600.00) however here are my views:

It was important for a keyboard to play and sounded like a real Piano not
only by listening to it on headphones but also in a live situation.
I needed 88 keys that
were weighted.
I also require a the following instruments to sound full
tone wise, not thin and wispy

The sounds I required were:-

Grand and upright Bright piano

A Fender Rhodes type piano

Strings and layered synths

I needed 4 organ types for live work

Hammond B3

Drawbar with rotary speaker effect

VOX continental

Gospel type

Accordion

Acoustic guitar

It had to be reliable. Inputs Outputs to easily accessed.
A quick and easy
way to navigate save favorites at a touch of a button.  

Having a recording and backing facility was a bonus.

All in all I thought the Korg PA 588 is a great keyboard a great feel and a
great selection of useful sounds.

I would recommend this instrument for all the reasons mentioned above.

I intent to upgrade my piano later this year to a lighter model.

The weight would need to be 20kg. Yamaha now have two models considering CP
1 and CP 5, o
r alternatively Roland 700 NX series.
