Very true. Looks very similar but could be a basket case therefore the price. Buyer beware. Probably needs everything and possibly undoing of work done in the past. So many are fitted with inappropriate hammers that are much too heavy and hard.

Suggestion: . . . Don't think of a digital piano as a "lifetime purchase". The F-20 will be fine for learning, for a few years at least. If you eventually say: . . . "I need something better -- my piano is limiting my playing"

A couple of years ago I tried a 5'9" Pramberger and it sounded good for its price, with a responsive action. Nothing wrong with this brand that I know of.

The VAX, while a noble project, was IMO much to gold plated to be a successful product. I really liked their continuous sensor approach, but I would have done it capacitively rather than with Hall effect devices. The folding thing was pretty stupid

The cough experiment did not reveal anything to me. I could not hear it strings .. BTW, I just realized even when I pay a whole piece just as Beethoven's Fuer Ellis, I hear a ringing tone most of the time, so it does not become inaudible ...

There is a point in which all fugues sound alike. Its just a characteristic of the technique. Yet, even without knowing what was going on in the music before transitioning into the fugue, I don't think Vivaldi would mind. Who said, "Good music

The unit turned out to be a dud and the new one is working great. The problem I'm having now seems to be crackles/pops unique to Vintage D itself and not the hardware from what I can tell. Started up a new thread on that.
