Has anybody taken a photo of the Yamaha CP4 key mechanism? I'd like to compare it to the Kawai MP7, but I've not seen one posted online.

I like the reference to "key" stakeholders! Nary a hint of a fallboard in that overhead shot. A missing product placement opportunity!

These are both potentially VERY nice pianos and are considered fairly closely matched in performance potential. They will sound and feel different - even if you don't play, you can ask for someone to demonstrate the piano for you. I find I like the

Quality wise they're both top notch. The idea that Schimmel and Mason and Hamlin have of sound is very very different though. I won't try to describe them because 1. My experience with M&H is very limited and 2. I could influence your decision

DP evolved fast in the 15 years maybe, but then it's getting slower. Roland is the only one pushing modeling on hardware, maybe if the others catch up and make hybrid engines there would be an step up.

It seems to be compatible only with Ios 8. I am hesitant, as some other apps that I have on my ipad air do not support ios 8 (like igrand) and I would like to keep them... Has anybody tried if it works on Ios 7 (even if it says it doesn't...)?
