Hello again,

I have a Casio, Privia, PX-300 that I purchased in Bangkok, Thailand five years ago. I am now planing to purchase a new piano for our living room. I don't want acoustic because of humidity here in Thailand and the problem with rodents, insects and wood. In the Philippines I could not keep the mouse out of the acoustic piano which costs a fortune to repair often.

I want all advise, opinions, etc so that I may make an informed decision on what to purchase. Please feel free to speak up as I can't just go to the local stores and view and play most piano's as you could in some countries. Yamaha stores and Casio piano's are in Thailand. I am not sure what else is around. I want a good looking piece of furniture that is of great quality sound wise and playing wise. Something that plays like and sounds like a real piano. I don't care much for the rest of what is on electric piano's (drums, different settings, recording, etc). Maybe good recording would be good so I could show the world how bad I play LOL.

Thank you, John
