Hi Wim, thanks for the reply. I understand fully what you mean about "Investment", it is an investment in music (is there a more noble one??!!). In South Africa, the way the currency is going, it could well be an investment! I hope to get s

Well, if you'd let your favorite acoustic piano drop from chest height to a concrete floor it would probably lose quite a bit of its value. I wouldn't recommend to do that with a mechanically complex key action either, nicely packed or not.

I love digital piano's with an un-weighted action and a midi input port. It's such a great tool for editing my Chopin pieces based on notes picked from Rubinsteins recordings.

lolatu, I would certainly agreed with everything you said - it is well known that we can't hear above 20kHz, and in the case of adults (especially musicians) probably not much above 8KHz. So 96KHz appears to be totally unnecessary. But I find it har
