Need some advice here.

I am looking to replace my existing and old piano. A piano salesman said he is having the above shipped to his store. Before I go and try them out, is there something I should be aware of? Anyone has any experience with them? I think they are from the early 1990s and based on the model number, seems to be grey market.

Is a grey market really a problem in New England weather?

On a side note, my current piano, which was a hands me down from my in-laws, is an Arian (New York). This brand is not listed in the Piano Book. Anyone has any clue?
