In my first years as a college student I had the mundane chore of keeping the choir room humidifiers full each day for the two Steinway Bs. 2 units and 10 gallons a piece. Needless to say I was far more slim and trim in those days.

Humidity levels of 30% for a few days are not a big problem. It takes several days to dry the wood and it will take on humidity much quicker. So raising the humidity in the room for a few hours to around 40% every couple of days will reduce the risk

I agree to humidify the room first. Get a large floor model or have one installed on your heating system. Don't be surprised if your house requires 10 or more gallons per day.

Probably a nice compromise from the expensive ones, there aren't many sampled pianos for 99 of this quality, specially without owning full kontakt.

LOL at myself ... I've downloaded Noteworthy Composer demo to give it a try. Man, I now understand the difficulty of playing to a strict tempo. I also find the notes that appear after recording were ... well ... clumped up with slurs here and there

I live in the mid Atlantic and have seen a lot of pianos with and without dampp-chaser systems. In the Mid- Atlantic, pianos like air conditioning and don't like heat. A D-C system will help a lot but you are not going to get the best tuning sta

Welcome to the forum Reg. Having previous experience with another instrument is a slight advantage even if it is that you already know playing an instrument can be demanding and need some sort of regime. Wishing you all the best with your new piano

As someone who owns a CLP-480 (and, an older CLP-990M) my experience is definitely in agreement with MacMacMac above in that adding speakers to a digital piano doesn't necessarily give breadth and quality to the sounds but tends to make the piano jus

Thank you all, I've been blown away by it ever since it arrived:) Sound wise, warm and creamy at the bass/ mid-range. Gorgeous growl from the low notes. Treble sounds a tad sharper but am hoping that gets resolved soon. Tuning will be done tomorrow

Try playing very, very easy pieces HT from the start. It sounds like you're only working on pieces that are at the absolute limit of your skill set, but you will progress much faster if you also work daily on sightreading pieces that you can easily
