I had just recently visited Asia and had the opportunity to visit a few big piano stores there. I have a Kawai and normally I much preferred Kawai's sound and action to Yamaha. However, i ran into this Yamaha Conservatoire in Hong Kong and I found myself really enjoyed playing it! the music desk is as big as the one you see on grand, and it'd even "come out" (it's pushed out away from the piano, so the sound would really come out).

Too bad it doesn't have english version, but here's a really cool model that I wish they'd also sell in US. If they have it in US, I think I would definitely choose it over U1 (or maybe even my K5... :/)

@Yamaha dealers here - why is it not sold in US??

It is. That's the YUS5, and it costs $18,000.
