Grandman, I was the one who said that I preferred the Walter 175 over the 190. The 190 was a nice piano but I liked the tone and the balance of the 175 I played over the 190s. Just my taste and just the particular 3 - 4 Walter grands that I played. B

When I was living in London, I knew a bloke who worked at the (now defunct) Tower Records in Piccadilly Circus, and he told me about an interesting incident. A customer came in and asked if they stocked a recording of Dvorak's 8th Symphony in D. He

Hi Joe, I can't agree any more with you. But...if you came up with two instruments, both of which reached your technic desire (e.g. a Schimmel Konzert and a Sauter), wouldn't the characteristics still be of little importance for your choice?

Has anyone tried one of these yet? I can't find a single one to try out in any local store. I'm thinking about buying one, but even YouTube videos are sparse because of how new this DP is. I would really, really appreciate if anyone has any first

Isaac, have you sent that film Piano Mania, with the Steinway tech Stefan Knupfer? I think of what he was doing with Alfred Brendel trying to get different qualities of tone with the unisons to suggest different instruments... All from the same piano

Semi-weighted does not equate to piano feel. That said, some SWs are better for piano than others, and I think the Numa Compact is pretty good. I'm not sure whether or not I've played the Oxygen 88, but I've never played an M-Audio SW that I thought

Yes, there's definitely something wrong with that recording - I'm hearing audio break-up every 1 second or so. Aside from that, the actual piano sound is fine to my ears. pake10, if you haven't already, download the ASIO4All audio driver and select

It probably shouldn't happen, but my system came to grief when I sent MIDI information and digital audio through the same address - which I think must happen if you use a hub. I ended up not only with delays but with blue screens in the end. Disaster

Got it, thanks for pointing that out, Turandot. I understand the idea of conflict of interest, as well as fiduciary, very well, so my plan is to ask the seller to have the piano tuned at their expense, and then we will decide whether it would be w
