I think you may have a problem: . . . There are not many "good" keyboards (88 keys, weighted-hammer action) . . . that have light-up keys. They are considered a feature for raw beginners. The Casio PX-x50 (PX-150 / PX-350 / PX-850 etc)

Kawai's K series are good pianos, so don't worry - you're not buying a POS. The K-200 is on the small side so a K-300 is usually a better place to start, and worth the price difference. The price seems very fair.

I said bad tool, not broken tool. A top quality screwdriver of the wrong size will also damage your screws.

Strobos hide us part of what is happening, so what we see is an incomplete succession that can be missinterpreted. What I've posted is a ultra high speed video, exactly the opposite. It hides nothing to our view as strobos do. Your analogy is inva

Personally I would probably run a scan with an antivirus, both Sophos and Avast do free editions for Mac, or look for some antispyware software, as otherwise I suspect it will reappear Remember that Macs are not immune to viruses they are just rare

there's unlikely to be a demand for such a massive preload with fast drives - even basic HDDs. I'm running an SSD. In Kontakt, vintage D piano preloads a mere 9mb.

A salesman told me that 97% of concert halls in the US have steinway grands. That tells me that if you don't have a steinway in your house for practice you may as well hang it up and call it quits because there's no way you're playing a *real* piano
