My wife (who's a beginner) and I (RCM ARCT) finally chose this digital piano for our apartment after trying out over 15 digital pianos from Yamaha, Casio, and Roland. I played an abbreviated version of Beethoven's Moonlight 1st & 3rd mvts, Chopin's Nocturnes 1 & 13, and an adaptation of Detective Conan's main theme to test out each piano. The pianos that we tested included Yamaha's entire CLP range from the 725 to the 785 and including the N1 true hybrid, Casio's AP-270, AP-470, and AP-710, and Roland's entire DP, RP, and HP line. The HP-704 was the piano that we chose in the end and below are my thoughts after 11 months with it along with some comparison with acoustic pianos that I have extensively played on: Yamaha U1 and Steinway K-52.

The Good:
The PHA-50 keys are phenomenal, although slightly on the heavier side. The heavier touch can allow better control of playing but will cause fatigue quicker. I've most noticed this after playing several complex pieces (for about 40 minutes vs. 60-70 minutes on the Steinway acoustic). However, this slight drawback produces in my opinion the most expressive keyboard out of ALL the pianos I've played, including the Yamaha and Steinway acoustics. The HP-704 truly is a joy to play particularly for classical music.
The bass tone is spot on in comparison to the Steinway K-52 that I've played for over 10 years. Sure, the built-in speakers won't do the tone generated by Roland's SuperNatural engine justice, but once a good pair of headphones are plugged in, it almost feels like I'm listening to a Steinway acoustic in a concert hall. The mids around middle-C are also decent and it's only on the upper 2-3 octaves where the tones become slightly shrill and thin. After owning the piano for around a month, I've since adjusted 3-4 keys in the upper octaves to avoid certain resonant frequencies within the cabinet. After the adjustments, the HP-704's tones are consistent across the entire 88-key range and don't seem to have any glaringly loud or shrill keys. This speaks to the wonderfully detailed adjustability of Roland's pianos with their built-in functions. If you'd like further customizations such as ambiance, resonance, hammer noise, and lid open level, Roland's Piano Designer app has you covered. In my personal experience, I found the adjustments don't necessarily change the tone for the better so I left most of the options as default from the factory.
Finally, the elephant in the room is the sheer amount of instrumental, vocal, and nature tones built-into the HP-704. With over 300 tones and the ability to dual or split the tones to your heart's satisfaction, there's really an almost infinite number of different sounds that can be produced from the HP-704. From angelic hums to bass slaps to full orchestral mixes and all the way to nature sounds such as thunder and river noises, Roland has put in as many tones as one could ever wish for in a home piano. Kids and adults will take great joy in playing their favourite pieces in different tones/voices, which I found myself doing on many late nights unknowingly playing a piece 8-10 times over just simply experimenting (and enjoying) the different feeling that various different instruments could produce from the exact same piece of music! As far as I know, no other home piano contains this many different instruments/tones.

The Bad:
If you're a headphone user, you can skip to the next point because the worst part of the HP-704 doesn't affect you (yay!). By far the biggest and most deal-breaking complaint for me about the HP-704 are the muddy speakers. For a $4000 piece of equipment, I really expect something with more punch and attack on those louder notes. The HP-704 does exceptionally well with softer and more flowing music such as Chopin's Nocturnes and most adaptations of modern pop music but falls quite hard when more power is needed from the speakers. Liszt's adaptation of Beethoven's 5th plays like it's on a toy piano regardless of the settings and volume. I can certainly increase the volume to 100 but that simply pushes all the softer notes to a louder state. The attack, power, and presence (think impact in both an auditory and physical sense) is simply not there when those first 4 notes are played. In this regard, there's simply no replacement for an acoustic instrument as the Steinway K-52 effortlessly communicates the mood of Beethoven's 5th from the moment the first 3 notes are played. Very similar results are found with other powerful pieces such as Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu, Scherzos, Mozart's Sonatas, and so on and so forth. Beethoven's Moonlight 3rd surprisingly plays quite well likely due to the sheer number of notes providing the ample build up of power and tension. I found the HP-704 is worst when power and sharpness is needed from a few notes and this is a limitation of the speaker system in the 704 and cannot (as far as I know) be fixed by any software adjustments. The Roland can be a good practice instrument for loud, rhythmic music, but don't count on enjoying it too much from the speakers.

After extensive testing of competitors and 11-months of experiencing the HP-704, I still think it's one of the best digital pianos available in 2023. Below $6k-7k prices, where true hybrid digital pianos start appearing, the HP-704 has one of the best keyboard actions combined with a truly expressive sound engine. The sound will likely require some adjusting to iron out resonance issues unique to each room and individual unit, but the generated tones produces a truly infinite number of different tones depending on the way, combination, and speed with which a certain key is pressed. This is the most significant draw behind Roland's HP-704 and is still unmatched by any other digital piano manufacturer today in 2023.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
