Dear All,

I am very new here and not an expert on piano.

Recently we would like to purchase a new grand piano for my child.

My wife love the touch and the voice of Shigeru kawai 3.
But the dealer told us that he would rather get a RX5 than a SK3 becasue a bigger piano has better resonance than a smaller one.

Since RX5 gets better resonce than SK3 and lower price should I give up SK3 to get a RX5.

Can anyone could tell me your opinions?

PS. Our music room is only 4.5 meters x 8 meters
