I have had my A90 for about 11 years now and I truley couldnt live without it. I use it mainly as a stage piano and haul it to performances as my main instrument. It is really heavy but it is worth the work. I love my A90 and it has served me well over the years. Iv had it for 11 years and just now had to replace the battery. It is fine now. Im blind and hearing impaired and find that it is user friendly and easy to memorize where the buttons are and use them for programming basic sound and finding them with the numeric keys are very helpful. The action is wonderful and cures my craving for a grand piano feel and responds very well when it comes to producing piano and forte volumes. You can play anything and it sounds great! I also have a CZ 5000 and sometimes use them togther to create an old 80's composition. I do not use any of the other midi or programs on it though becouse it is not acessible to me, but I can type the numbers for the sounds I want and it is very quik. Its been through a lot of travel and concerts as well as outside show and has proved that it is a tough and reliable keyboard. Wont fall apart! Awsome machine! {hearts}

I am the current owner of a roland a-90 and i love the feel, BUT.... the piano sound in it , all of them, to be exact, have one major issue, they drop off too fast, makes it sound like a piano with the soft pedal down. Sadly, this makes it almost insanely unplayable for me, as far as internal sounds go. Other than that, i LOVE it. :-D

I've had one for four years now, and I love it to bits: it has a lovely touch, and can be programmed in a moment. But it tends to sit in the studio a lot, simply because it's too heavy to gig - when flightcased it weighs so much it has to be carried by two people. Oh well...

From the fact that everyone else was writing four years ago, I suppose it has stood the test of time!

This is one incredible keyboard!!! I bought this baby used at Guitar Center for 850 without the VE-RD1 board and picked that up at zzounds for 90 bucks....without a doubt this is the best feeling keyboard out there, even several years after its release. The action permits you do bring a level of expressiveness to your playing that until recently I thought was only available on a concert grand... As far as the sounds are concerned, the stereo sampled pianos are so good, I can't imagine the need for a real piano anymore. I am running it out through two KC-100's and the realism of these pianos is incredible. The rhodes and wurlis and sweet sounding, especially if you add a little chorus to em. The organs could be improved a bit, but the rest of the sounds are pretty good considering this is supposed to be primarily a midi controller. Another plus is the intuitive interface that allows you to tweak sounds without having to suffer through Roland's horrendous manual. I bought both the manual and video, but have really not had to use them for the basic functions of this board. The drawback is obviously the weight, but it's still lighter than a real piano. I also wish that the sounds didn't cut off immediately when you change a patch but hey, no instrument is perfect. I haven't even touched all the crazy midi control options this board has to offer yet, but sometime down the road, I will pick up a module with some expansion boards. Like someone else posted before, these aren't the IT thing to buy now since everyone is coming out with new stuff that offers more bells and whistles than the A-90 EX. But if you are looking for a controller or even a stage piano that will remind you how great it was to play an acoustic piano, this one is still the tops the list in my humble opinion. Thanks for reading!
