Another option might be to return or trade in your Roland for another keyboard? If originally purchased from a store they should allow you to do so. And, I would test it at the store to see if it has keys that make less noise than the Roland althou

Still no delivery. Now I am engaged in a useless exchange with a customer service advisor who said: "Your package should have arrived by now" and that I should check with the postal service to see if they are holding it for me.

The key noise is caused by mechanical sticking of the keys by my fingers, so regardless of whether I use headphones or not they are there, and they will disturb other people in my home

Probably a bit on the high side. That price is likely what they paid for it back in 2003, or only a little below. In 2002 a local theater bought a C2 for $14K. But, that was a heavily discounted price for the dealer to get a highly visible piano into
