Recently a used Yamaha grantouch gt10 popped up on the local Craigslist and seems to be a great option to use with a vst (love the pianoteq bluthner BTW). Anyway, I thought I'd make a post here to find out a little more about it before going to look at it as it's quite far away. First, does anyone have any experience with it? I played an nu1 at the local dealer and absolutely loved it! Would the grantouch keys and speakers be comparable? Second, this thing does have an input right? And third, how much are these worth? The ad has it listed at $2500 but I for sure wouldn't pay more than $2000 but is it even worth that? I honestly have no idea.

I think the GT10 action is very similar to that of the NU1. For the speakers, I don't know.

You can find the specs at http://usa.yamaha.com/product_archive/keyboards/gt10/?mode=model where you can see that there's an AUX input.

As for the price, $2500 seems very high.

Yes, it has inputs/outputs for MIDI, audio etc. These are placed on the back; which I prefer, for all the cables remain out of sight (assuming you will place the instrument up against the wall).

If the instrument is in good condition, go for it ($2,000). Pairing it with Pianoteq will give you much better results than buying any of the newer offerings from the big three.

A real action is not a gimmick. No folded action can come close to it, and in terms of Kawai's pivot-based action, no , that does not come close to a real upright action neither.

I don't believe that the extra sensor on the GF (Kawai) action will give you any true advantage in terms of repetition over the GT's action.

Honestly, I've not noticed much improvement over two-sensor actions. Like counting layers in a sampled piano, more sensors gives an immediate impression of being better, "the more the better;" however, that is not always the case. Yes, the experts will tell you why a third sensor improves repetition from a theoretical perspective, but as we all know, a lot can happen between theory to implementation. My self-cleaning oven can theoretically clean itself, yet if I don't go in there myself, there always remains a bit of last thanksgiving's turkey (I'm being facetious; I can't even cook, but you get the point).
