Did you have it re-tuned after it was moved? The piano should have acclimated to your home for a month or so before re-tuning. If it's been in your home a while now, it should be fine tuned again.

The best musicians feel time from their solar plexus, working like an internal metronome. It is impossible for the brain to count the time and be correct throughout. It is focusing on too many other things, and a metronome will soon make it apparent

You mention feel and sound, but then seem to focus on sound. You can do much better with action feel in this price range from Casio and Kawai, especially compared to your two likely contenders which hardly shine in this area. Better sound can be add
