It seems like the Physis is not being sold in the U.S.A.; I contacted the Physis team via their website regarding the instrument's availability in the states, yet never received an answer. The slab version with customized stand (speakers included) looks very nice, and eliminates the need for audio cables, monitors etc..; The stand looks very sturdy; perhaps firm enough not to wriggle under intense (hard) playing.

It SEEMS that Kraft Music is selling them now
I know, your comment was a while ago, I'm offering an update not a criticism laugh

It's all good. In terms of physical modeling, the more the merrier. Welcome home, Physis.

Yamaha and Kawai, are you listening? We want them physical models in your pianees.

Look at the date of brooster's post - the videos were uploaded to YouTube a few days earlier.

Looks like Kraft Music* (in the US) is offering several of the Physis Pianos here:

http://www.kraftmusic.com/sitesearch/?q=Physis%20Piano

Does anyone have one and what do you think?

*Piano(s) not "in stock" at this time.

Here's my reply on another current thread:

pv88, pmh:

I really wanted to write something quite detailed with links to recordings for you all to, err, enjoy?!...

There is so little info available on Physis and I wanted to try and do my bit to redress that situation. I will, but it will be a little bit time-consuming and I have been, and remain, tremendously busy at work. Bear with me, I will come up with something as soon as I can.

Very briefly, I think the Physis isn't quite there sonically but for some of the same and some different reasons, is enjoyable like the V-Piano can be enjoyable despite its failure to be a truly high-fidelity sonic representation of an acoustic piano. Most crucially, there is none of the weakness in the midrange that blights the V-Piano. One big difference is that within the whole breadth of the Physis sounds I feel there is something that could be the basis of a truly realistic and pleasant piano sound. I never felt that with V-Piano; I always had the feeling that they really needed to start again with the basic underlying tone of the thing. Physis is capable of being very superior to the V-Piano in that respect.

V-Piano has the better action and the dynamics feel more polished, slightly more linear, more finished if you will. I think Physis can come across as a bit raw in places, like it is still a 'work in progress' (which it is!). But I think there's something in Physis, something likeable. It can actually do quite warm and mellow with, to my ears, almost a suggestion of woodiness and that is entirely absent from other modelled sounds, especially PianoTeq.

Like I said, bear with me chaps for a more detailed thread...
