Just an update I went with the K3 instead of the k2 and just received it yesterday. I was debating in another thread a K2 vs K3. I love it so much but wow is it loud. You can hear it throughout the whole house. I have to figure a way to reduce the sound. I tried putting a blanket from the top around to the back but don't like it as much as it muffles the sound. I heard somewhere that it can cause rusting by absorbing moisture. Does this only happen if you put a blanket inside the piano? Sorry might be a dumb question but I'm a newbie lol. Most of my house is hardwood does laying down carpets really make a difference. Thanks everyone.

Yes, put an area rug underneath the piano and that will help tremendously with sound. Also, you can try hanging a tapestry on the wall near it.

I cannot open your file.

I'll try the area rug thank you. I uploaded the picture using my phone and for some reason it won't allow me to view either. I will try and play around to make it work. Thanks.

I think you may have to upload your picture to a website that allows people to view it, or a filesharing site where you can get a link for it. Then in the Full Reply screen you can click on the "Enter an image" icon, select one of the options (I don't know the difference, so I usually pick the first option) and then enter the url given for your file.
