Everyone's entitled to their opinion. I have his Etude disc and have quite enjoyed them although they do not supplant my favorite Lazar Berman. Berman plays an equally impressive Spanish Rhapsody which makes this otherwise I thought trashy piece soun

Two possibilities: 1. The amplifier has separate "left" and "right" inputs jacks; 2. The amplifier has one "stereo" input jack. If (1), you'll need a "stereo headphone splitter" (which plugs a stereo plug

Major Major, when you get into the price range of the Kawai CP-1 or the Roland V-Grand, I don't think you can go wrong either way. You really do have to just play them to decide. In this price range, you are making a long term investment, rather th

FWIW (I own the predecessor to the PX-360, not a PX-360): . . . If you can't test-play the PX-360 yourself, don't do the switch. My opinion is that the "Ivory-Feel G" action on the FP-50 isn't as nice to play, as the PX-x50 action used in

ghosthand, I am not sure if when you say it is a new discovery you mean the "memorizing the notes" part or some other new technique. If you've been memorizing notes for long, that would prove my theory incorrect. Yes, it is interesting ho
