I've decided on the beautifully restored 1916 M&H A. I think I will call him Figaro. He has a big beautiful voice, is precise but warm, a joy to be with and can handle just about anything without complaint. (My current piano is called Cherubino,

There are other things that some synth/DP manufacturers do well: 1. Custom chips (or FPGAs) optimized for audio, sample-fetching, etc. 2. Hardware that's more robust than a PC, that boots up very quickly, with lightning-fast performance. 3. Software

Have never played a Hamburg vertical. Have never even seen one in the US, and I get to play an awful lot of pianos... Just about every Steinway dealer has a NY model K in their inventory over here. Interestingly, many seem to be in wood finishes.

Maurus, I understand and respect your point. It is just hard to to take it as 'normal' when 86 keys sound beautiful and one sounds bad (one sounds a little better). Fortunately I haven't been bothered by the buzz when I play though powered speakers,
