I have been recently told by a Roland dealer that the keyboard actions built into the post-V-Piano PHA-II models (like HP-302) differ significantly from the keyboard actions built into the pre-V-Piano PHA-II models.
The reason of the difference is supposed to be the that some of the R&D that went into the V-Piano found it's way into these models, too.
Some of the specifically mentioned differences is supposed to be that the weight grading of the keys is continuous on the newer PHA-II, while there are only four of give weight groups on the older PHA-II.
Is there any chance that this could be true? I would think that if they change the action, it's their best interest to market the change, and thus rename it. And indeed, the improved keys from V-Piano appeared in other models, but I thought that's supposed to be the PHA-III. (But I have never implied that I can understand (or predict) the decisions or other "brain" functions of marketing guys, so I would not be too surprised if they had done something this stupid.)
So, what do you think, does this PHA-II+ really exist? (Or what could be the source of the misunderstanding here?)
ps. Currently I am not really interested in any PHA-II DP; I am more of a Kawai fan. I am just curious.
