I visited Yamaha's flagship store today (located in Ginza, Tokyo), and was fortunate enough to try their C1X that was on display. It was hands down the best grand I've played so far. It was very responsive (faster than all the Steinways I've played).

I really can't believe it was me who played in all those recitals in the last 3 years. Looking back on it everything I went through seems like a distant dream. I cannot keep up with repertoire and I haven't practiced seriously in over 4 months now.
