Hi Ed. First up, thanks for your support. The speaker system of the HP508 is going to be the biggest factor here. I will suggest running the output of your RD800 through the HP508 speaker system using the Audio inputs. This will give you a cleare

There are other considerations why a seller would choose to sell on consignment. One would be that they don't want the hassle of trying to market it and have unknown "guests" in their home. Another reason is that it is from an estate. Al

I think it's fairly common knowledge that buying a piano on consignment usually costs more than buying the same piano in a private sale. So one IMO very good reason to know what the % split is would be to help someone decide how much the probsble ext

Thank you all for your suggestions. After finally finding the pedal, I plugged it in. It works, but the opposite way. When the pedal is not pressed it sustains and when its pressed, it dampens. Suggestions for how to fix this?
