Hello, does anyone own or has anyone played these? I liked the 465 but figure the emphasis could be more on the shell (grand shaped) and not sure if there is a benefit in this model.

The 408 uses actual wood in the white keys.

I have started to look at already assembled pianos as I am tired of UPS and want something nice to sit and look at

(I will go and look at the LX15 that another poster here just got- that thing looked and sounded very nice)

Why would you want to overpay for some would-be acoustic cabinet, which doesn't even resemble an acoustic and is plain ugly? 408 - is essentially a Clavinova 470 in a different cabinet with almost twice the cost.
