VLC is a very good reliable media player and it will convert files to a different format. Do be sure to download it from the official site, but there's no need to worry about malware etc.

I played the S6 sample for a long time this evening, although I prefer the CFX and the CFIII. I didn't find any of these issues to be unbearable. On the whole, though, I find the S6 to sound a little dark and muddy for a lot of the stuff I practice (

I've seen a 1098 so practice thrashed that the damper pedal was worn to a nub! Yet it did have music left in it. 1098s and Ks (often) do sound like Steinways should, and I have tended to enjoy them. I would assume most places allow practice in clas

I recently purchased a used C7 and had substantial work done on the hammers to soften the sound. It is better, but still harsh to my ears. Like others have observed, you'd probably get a lot more for your money in Ca. Let your friends and associate
