Anyone out there playing the new Roland KR117M digital grand? If so, would appreciate any comments, positive or negative as well as ballpark prices paid in US $$ if possible. Thanks in advance!

From what I can gather online this appears to
be very expensive, around $30,000, rather
surprising because there is already
and expensive Roland player grand in the
$15,000 price range. The reason for the
high price is apparently because you
put any MP3 file or CD into it--not only
the special Roland player piano CD's--
and it's computer will translate the music
into a piano rendition, no matter what kind
of music it was. That kind of keyboard
magic might be worth the price.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I'm hearing in terms of price etc. There is the RG7 with less whistles and bells which would be fine with me, as I play mostly classical music, but the 280 watts of power on the 117 would be nice. Thanks for your time.
