If you are starting out - consider only 2 options: an acoustic upright or a Yamaha Avantgrand N1. I started on the former and just bought the latter. An acoustic is preferable, but I do believe the N1 would be the next best thing in a flat or apartment. The action on the N1 is true grand action; though the sound is not as resonant as an acoustic.

Don't cut corners. The less expensive digitals don't begin to match an acoustic in action or sound.

Hi Susan,
have you tried the Yamaha NU1 in comparison to the N1? It´s an upright action instead of a Grand action, but I think it as close to an acoustic action as the N1 is while being less expensive.

Yes, I forgot to mention the NU1. So 3 options: acoustic upright, N1 or NU1.
