Understood. In this situation you are clearly more concerned with loudness then the sound quality, just buy any system from a reputable brand that is loud enough for your purpose?

Steve, I agree that the synthesized string quartet in your link doesn't sound too bad (although it still is pretty obviously synthetic--maybe it isn't "gritty" enough?). And as I told gioioso earlier, I may eventually resort to the electro

If you have some keys that you think of as "difficult": ... Practice scales / arpeggios , and sight reading in those keys. They'll stop being "difficult", as they become familiar to you.

English is not my mother tongue so I have some difficulty in visualizing the word descriptions on the techniques and body motions/movements. The lesson (or master class) part (about a few works which Arrau went through his students) is fairly good.
