I think the diff's between various DPs' sound, as well as the diff between them and a "real" piano, has continued to shrink where they are smaller than many would care to admit, frankly. The least of my worries is hearing one years from no

It would be most important to engage the services of a piano technician you trust to inspect the piano. Portland is a very benign climate for piano longevity. You will want to verify the age by the serial number. A well preserved Model A in satin eb

As long as the dealer an authorized one (for purposes of warranty coverage), there shouldn't be any issues, no. If you're concerned, compare the performance of this piano against the newer version K300 in the same store.

Maybe I need to update the subject for this post. I don't want the comparison between U1 vs K3. I'd like to know if there could be any issue for K3 after it has been sitting in dealer's for 2-3 years. Maybe it is fine.

The lifespan of this thread seems to be more than 5 years. I don't know of any studies, but I bought my Yamaha CLP-550 in 1990 brand new (I think I paid something like $4,500). I quit piano about a year in because I didn't have a teacher and failed

Jerry, You don't run Pianoteq (stand alone software) and Cubase at the same time. That's why you are getting the error. The ASIO driver isn't available because Cubase is using it. Cubase is a VST host. You open the Pianoteq plugin within Cubase

I would say ... go ahead and do what you are planning. AND ... start saving your money regularly (a little at a time) until you have at least 500 dollars and then get yourself a nice instrument which will allow you to enjoy your playing much more.

I'm on the search for a grand piano in the 10K range and am in the process of narrowing my local options. So here's a question for everyone out there: What would the expected lifespan be for a 1952 Mason & Hamlin 5'8" grand that has not bee

Sorry to hear of your discouraging experience, Smiley. Sadly, many piano teachers are indeed close-minded and discouraging. Keep searching though, it's a big world out there. I recommend you seek out a university or conservatory student - somebody yo

I agree with the thought up thread about staying away from Guild and MTNA lists. I've had the best luck and the most flexibility (as an adult beginner) by working mostly with degreed freelancers. I've been able to start and stop as I needed or wante

As far as I understand it, running a radiator 18" from an acoustic piano is nothing short of a recipe for disaster.
