Roland XV-88

Beginning with the Cons: it's heavy.

Now the Pros: excellent for the on-stage playing, with live controls to express the performance at best.

The keyboard is a bit hard, but the feeling is quite good as a piano; it sports channel aftertouch, easy to modulate and control, and the D-Beam.

The large orange dot-matrix display is clearly readable with any light condition and the menu structure is simple and clear.

Large buttons are useful in changing parameters on-the-fly, even within darkness.

It is an XV-3080 with hammer-action keyboard, so the sound quality is very good; two SR-JV and/or two SRX add-on cards are allowed to expand the sound banks.

The metal end cheeks are like the Jupiter-8 ones.
And the overall look is definitely amazing.
