As an afterthought, I remember reading something about an upright piano Kawai had with a variable touch control (the VT132). Had a lever you could move to change the touchweight. I don't know if it was ever available in the US or if it is still made.

digitalguy, Yes I was referring to WIN updates. In general 8.1 and the surfaces in particular can be a little funny. They can hang up with system updates. So I was just wondering if you had any guidelines with the Surface based on your experience?

It's a difficult decision. The law of diminishing returns definitely applies when it comes to Shigeru vs. Steinway/European 'top tier' instruments. I spent a long time trying to decide between buying a Shigeru SK3, a C. Bechstein M/P and a Bösendor

The bench was hardly used and has no compartment. This is like a concert bench with the adjustable knobs on the side. The dealer apparently put some reinforcements on the legs for the repair which was done at his establishment.

I'm curious - what did the piano techs tell you? All of the Steinways I've played on have pretty normal action. Her's could be out of adjustment. I know that my teaching instruments, after 15 years of teaching, needed serious action work. Perhaps
