I have the ap450 and these settings do make some difference. The lid does not have to be open for them to work. For string resonance try holding down the damper pedal and playing the highest notes loudly at different settings. And the hammer response

Hello, and welcome to Piano World! It sounds like you are doing your research and doing your homework, so you can make an informed decision. Even so, it can be a difficult choice to make. There are benefits to both a digital piano and an acoustic.

Have you tried to hear the difference with headphones? Otherwise, I'd try with the lid up. Also, did you try these with the damper pedal? I'm not sure if this would help (not sure what hammer response corresponds to), but sometimes it does.

The K-3 is a nice piano. Unless the K-300 really stands out to you, I'd go for the K-3. I've had the opportunity to play a K-3 quite a bit and it has a nice touch and tone.

a) How important is $2000 to you? b) Doug M's suggestion of an FP-90 and a pair of speakers is intriguing. You can get really good speakers for $1000 per pair. No worries about "Is there enough power?", with that option. I admit to bias
