Which one of these pianos do you prefer?
Does either of them play or sound better to you?

No comparison at the same price!! The Petrof is a much better make.

You are still comparing a Hyundai to a Beemer!

Careful Steve, these days, a Hyundai is better quality than a Beemer ;\)

Have you tried a Perzina? I think they are an excellent value and compete well with the most expensive pianos.
