Thank you Rich for your input! BTW, I really enjoy your Piano Tastings episodes! Very entertaining and informative! Out of curiosity, which of the two is your definite preference? Shigeru or the Estonia? Thanks again.

I bought Standard version with 30% discount. I think they have discount once or twice a year for Standard and Pro versions. But I never see a discount for Stage version.

Hi everyone! Thank you very much for your kind replies. Yes, absolutely tone and touch are extremely important. The SK-2 should be arriving soon for me to try out. I just wanted to know if there were any known recurring problems with either piano

You mean that there is a speakers system that sounds like an acoustic grand piano? Which one is it? If it was so easy everybody would buy that system, don't you think?

Quick question... due to the open ear design. Would the hd598 sound more realistic than a my KRK to kit 6 studio monitors? I've been told that headphones are more accurate and superior to speakers. And I've been told the opposite as well.. Stil

Understood. I actually love theory and like reading about all kinds of chords and scales. I just distinguish between things I might read about, and the things I actually try to get under my fingers so that I can use them when playing with others.

I'm working on The Wild Rider by Schumann. One thing that I struggle with, and it was similar with The Little Beggar is where you have similar passages but one measure is different. For example, Measure 1 is the same as 5, 2 is 6, and 3 is 7. It's 4
