NEW Steinway Model A vs Model O

Post by actualpiano » 11 Apr 2018, 01:42

Is Steinway A worth the extra money? Is the overall quality improvement between O and A as large as that between M and O?

I live in a townhouse that shares a wall with a neighbor. Is it the case that Model A is much louder than O? Would Model A fit (acoustically, physically, and aesthetically from a interior design perspective) in an average sized living room?

Both the A and the O are going to be loud in a townhouse. The Model A is much louder but has a far richer sound as you are in the concert range than the O if you have the room and the cash get the A

Both pianos can be voiced down to Bluthner levels yet: it will still carry in a townhouse. However, that is like buying a Bugatti Veyron and putting a 30MPH; limit on it
