Thankyou everyone for their thoughts! Well, I just played the piano again( for the 2nd time ) and was pretty much able to produce the right sound this time, although couldn't really control the sound yet again. I suppose it'd take me a while. Anyw

What brand piano is it? Steinways and Masons have quarter-sawn, laminated maple pin blocks and they are very durable if housed well. Older Chickerings and others had flat-sawn, laminate maple pin blocks-they don't hold up as well. Same goes for the

Chris and Prout, Stroboscopic displays, (visual beats) have time dependent accuracy. When you try to compare below 1 cent, you have to observe the pattern for some time to be sure it is not moving. Hearing plus 1 cent difference is rapidly assessed b

Scores won't sell for prices like that. It just won't happen and it's a waste of time to try to make it happen. If what we are witnessing here is the start of a paradigm shift of the musical arts, you have my nod, but this just isn't something that

Dave, can you please elaborate on your sound system setup for the N1, perhaps including specific speaker models? This would be really helpful for those of us wanting to get the most pleasing sound out of this cost-effective but very nice instrument.

I'm surprised the RX5 is the same price as the Ritmuller. The RX5 is a substantially bigger piano. Maybe they are selling it cheaply to get rid of it so they can display only the new GX Kawais. I would certainly take the RX5 - especially at that pric

You are way too young and way too meagerly paid to buy a Steinway grand at this point in your life. If you must have a grand piano right now, there are plenty of makes of pianos that you might like and would cost less than a Steinway. Consider buyi

Thanks for your reply BDB... What is the spreadsheet, is that a re-scaling? What can one expect sonically by running the scale through the spreadsheet? What would necessitate changing out the pinblock? That is a big expense, and one I was hopin

Stay in school. Get a degree. Get a job. Save up cash. Shop for a piano. Or, become friends with all of the crew at the Steinway dealership and park there.

Don't think the P155 is over done at all. The others are cheaper and lighter to meet a price. You should compare a DP action to a real piano and anything lighter than a P155 will also be lighter than a 6 or 7 foot grand piano, and you don't want th

I know getting into debt is the worst thing ever and I know first hand how much it sucks. Thankfully my slate is clean, but I keep dreaming of playing on a mighty majestic Steinway (evil laugh). Seriously, I can't think of anything else in the world

Unfortunately quite often you have to be dead in order for your work to sell for several millions... Apparently Van Gogh for example only sold 1 painting while he was alive (and not for millions!). PS: Happy Belated Birthday, TwoSnowFlakes!
