5.0 out of 5 stars Very affordable. Good feel and sound., 16 Aug 2012
Very pleased. After using a Yamaha NP-30 with Graded Soft Touch keys for some time, I decided it was time to move to something with a more realistic feel. I took my time shopping around and came across the Axus D2 Digital Piano. All the product reviews I came across online were positive, so I decided to make my purchase.


Superb value for money. Nice design and style. Easy to assemble but will require two persons. The keys have a nice, graded and weighted feel, and the matte black keys add a quality feel which I much prefer over glossy black keys. It has good quality piano sound / timbre, with an adjustable reverb effect which makes it sound even better. It has four speakers which do well to fill the room, and although I think the bass could be deeper, it has good and acceptable dynamic range for a digital piano.


Can't honestly think of any negatives to note!


Nice modern design and style. Good feel - matte black keys add a nice touch. Good piano sound / timbre. Very affordable and superb value for money. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful & Funky!, 21 May 2006
This review is from: Philips SBC BA 109 (Electronics)
Active speaker system with an RMS of 2 watts. Can be used passively without batteries. Although it's only 1 watt per speakers, the bass, clarity and amplitude is impressive!

Lasts long, using 4 x AA batteries. Additionally they can be powered though an adaptor socket on the back (but you need to buy an adaptor seperately).

Standard 3.5mm jacks on adequately long cables...but not too long that you'll be trailing them behind you when you're on the move. The left speaker plugs into a 3.5mm jack in the right speaker. The right speaker acts as the power centre, containing the batteries in a slot on the back, and a power button the front which lights red when powered on. Detachability of left and right speakers mean you can take just one speaker with you to make for a lighter load.

Nice design, with a groovy plastic speaker grill on the front. Nice shape, with a flat front and side and a semi-circle curvature around the top to the back and bottom. The right speaker (containing batteries) is a bit heavy, but not uncomfortably it's a sacrifice if you want power. Speakers are ported with an padded air hole at the bottom front, helping to maximise bass.

Negatives? Well only a few. No cable management, like a wrap-around or reel. Also, you can't 'clip' the speakers together so that they hold as one unit - this would help during transport.

Overall, impressive sound quality. Good bass! Cool looking. Functional.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent value! Great...but only with Ni-MH batteries...!, 16 April 2005
- Pros: Superb value, quality pictures, easy to use, flash, small and modern design.
- Cons: Needs 2 x AAA rechargeable Ni-MH batteries in order to work longer than several minutes!!! No viewfinder.
This camera is most definitely a bargain, especially with the specs it boasts! It has hardware resolution of up to a superb 3 megapixels! That's an image size of 2032 x 1520, much larger than the 1024 x 768 TFT monitor can accommodate! It takes excellent pictures. The shutter speed is adequate, but not lightning fast, however thats how digital camers are like at the moment. You wont find a 3 megapixel camera at this price too easily!
The only main disappointment is how the camera performs when using 2 x AAA alkaline batteries. It can't last longer than 5 minutes using the flash! You need to use rechargeable Ni-MH batteries with a good capacity (800mAH, 900mAH or up will do perfectly). That obviously means you need to buy rechargeable batteries and a Ni-MH charger, but once you've got them you're rolling!!!
