Is anyone else considering one vs. the other? Now, of course the Krome 88 will have the more advanced 2.8gb piano sample, but the SP280 is power on and play.

I played the Krome 88 yesterday again and was convinced the version of NH on that board was better than that on the SP170.

I've not been convinced thus far by the brief demos I've heard of the SP-280 - sounds like the short decay time issue rears its head yet again. But, to be fair, there's nothing high quality out there to allow for a thorough evaluation.

The two boards are aimed at very different markets, and have a very different feature set. If you're comparing the pianos on paper, the SP has a four layer sample set with the addition of some release samples, while the Krome has an eight-layer set with no release samples (that I've yet discovered).
