This piano was easy to put together. I see that people are complaining about not have the ear-phones jack...Well, guys, if you actually put your piano together yourself, you would know that the jack is located in the base of the keyboard, left hand corner underneith the keys near the front screws, which in my opinion is a comfortable location for the wire to come out of relative to your sitting position. So, whoever is reading this and you think you don't have the earphones jack, take another look! ;-D

I've been a professional musician and studio owner for over 40 years. I was looking to replace my old digital piano with a new one with a built in stand. I know that the Williams pianos are...cheap...to say the least. But thought what the heck, I'll take a long shot on one and see just how "usable" they are. I figured the sounds would be cheesy, but thought maybe the action would be good enough to midi to a good sound module. I caught this one on the SDOD for two ninety nine and figured I could gamble that much. Well, I should have went to the casino instead :) . Does not sound realistic at all and the weighted keys do not feel authentic either. Then again....I didn't really expect much.

Don't get me wrong...these pianos would probably be great for a beginner to take lessons on. But if you want anything close to a real piano sound and feel...don't bother. Spend more and get a quality keyboard.

I don't like giving a rating of one star for something unless it is an awful product, which this is not...so I gave it two. Simply because it would serve the purpose for a beginner, but as I stated before...you get what you pay for. If I had paid regular price I would send it back although shipping would be a bundle. But since I got it on SDOD I will just give it to my nephew's kids to play with.

      Comments about Williams Rhapsody 2 88-Key Console Digital Piano:

      This piano was the easiest thing to put together. It took maybe 20 minutes, if that. It sounds great, exactly like a real piano and the keys feel exactly like a real piano as well. It's great for apartments where you don't have a lot of room and where you can control the volume so that you don't disturb your neighbors.

            Comments about Williams Rhapsody 2 88-Key Console Digital Piano:

            I'm a parent who know nothing about music or pianos. I went with this one after researching for a weighted-key keyboard. It was important for our daughter to practice/learn with authentic keyboarding action. Youtubes and articles reviewed this Rhapsody version 2 as a great find and I'll agree. The sampled sounds are authentic and rich. We do hear the keys thump a bit. I'm not sure if this is common with keyboards are not. The headphone jacks are 1/8th inch, so you'll need a proper pair of headphones, or an adapter if you intend to plugin headphones. This device came with a power adapter. The package is roughly 90lbs. I felt it was a good buy on-sale for Labor Day. The one thing i'd improve is I'd have the back-plate go all the way to the keyboard as to hide the two wires (pedal and power). The press-board back-plate was intended to close the open space between the leg-stands, but it still leaves a gap at the top which is a bit undesirable. The keyboard sounds great, has weighted keys, and a bunch of digital capabilities (that may never get used). This is an affordable piece that we hope lasts through our daughters piano endeavors.

                I am the music director for our church and needed to replace my old piano with something lighter. There are very few setting for different sounds and only 2 choices for "piano" sound and neither is very good quality. It sounds very muffled even when it is turned up. For the amount of money I spent on it I regret purchasing it.

                  Happy to have this as an addition to our home. Ww bought this for our kids to start their piano lessons. The keys have a very weighted, realistic feel. Great look to the piano and easy to put together. This is a 2nd piano as the first one had a blown speaker out of the box. Miusicians friend was very helpful in resolving this issue. Williams piano's solution was poor though as they suggested they could send a speaker to me and I could replace it myself. Some warranty that is!!

                      I purchased this piano for my 12 year old son. He has been asking for a piano, but we didn't want the hassle of tuning a piano and were able to get an excellent deal on this one on Black Friday. It was easy to assemble, looks fantastic and sounds great! I had my doubts about a digital piano (my son wanted to get away from his keyboard) but the keys are heavy, like a traditional piano. I would recommend this product.

                            I am a senior with many years experience but was lacking a piano for the past several years. I thought this would be an excellent solution to having a 600 pound piece of furniture... and I was right. Plays and sound just like a piano..or if I am so inclined that day, a church organ. Delightful product.

                                  The product is great! It even comes with access to McCarthy Music, a learning program. The only downfall is that it is only accessible for an Ipad or a Windows tablet. It is most unfortunate that I cannot use the music program on my MacBook Pro laptop. I think it should be accessible from the website alone, instead of an app that only certain devices can access.

                                      I love this piano. I was disappointed that it did not have headphone jack as illustrated in manual but I can live with this.

                                        Just got the Williams Rhapsody 2 a few weeks ago. I am completely inexperienced with piano and so far I've been impressed. I'm aware it's not a top of the line piano but it suits my needs. I've grown up playing guitar and at first they all sounded the same to me. Over time I developed more of an ear for pickups, low and high end guitars, etc. I'm sure it'll be the same with this piano. The keys are weighted, and have some touch sensitivity to them. The other sounds like electric piano, strings, etc are decent, nothing super special. Being a beginner I didn't want too many options. I'm just trying to become familiar with piano. Thanks Williams.

                                          I am really quite amazed what a lovely instrument this is. The weighted keys are delightful. The sound is really very good. I have been producing music for many years and I have used several keyboards over the years. I currently own an MAudio SONO 88. It has done a fine job serving as a midi controller although it did not feel nor sound as good as this Williams digital piano. If your looking for a really great price on a digital piano. This is it! Very easy to assemble. Just great!

                                            Worried about how high it would be, but it turned out to be just right. Needed two people to set up because of the weight, but, all in all, again, just right.

                                              My boy is 9 and has been taking piano for 5 years now. I have a grand in the living room and must open it every time he wants to practice. I thought this would be a good idea to put in his room so he can practice anytime when I am not around. He thought it was awesome! I am impressed with the unit and it was a super price. Parents who have kids wanting to take piano lessons, well, this is the way to go. You are not out much if junior decides he doesn't like it anymore. Definitely a hit Christmas morning.

                                              Bought this from Stupid Deal and love it. I bought this for my daughter for learning and practicing. We love this digital piano on the first sight and we are having fun playing it everyday. I'm not a professional player and I've not formally learn piano/keyboard so I would not comment too much on the sound or how realistic on the feel of the weighted key. I have not tried loudest volume, in home environment, it sounds good to my ear and I will say build quality of the piano is good.
