For S-phoenix 272, hands down, much much better than any of Steinway D I have ever played

That's quite a compelling statement. Thanks for sharing your experience.
It would be interesting to have a side-by-side comparison with a Steinway D and invite 10 concert pianists to share their opinion on the differences.

Must be popular needing that sort of saving to shift them,is there are RRP or are the prices just plucked out of thin air?.D.J.Smith wrote:The prices [less 40% discount] are all listed on the Hurstwood website.

Thanks for that,every business does the same fortunately the Piano Industry is not as marked -up as other industries.MarkGoodwinPianos wrote:I agree it's better to have sensible prices from the start rather than over-inflating the RRP just so you can offer a big discount. But nothing to do with the quality of the piano, it's just business and marketing.

Thats a sweeping generalisation on what evidence do you base those comments.MarkGoodwinPianos wrote:I agree it would be nice if there were more manufacturers in the "very sought after" bracket currently occupied by Yamaha and Steinway. Doctors go for the Steinways, families go for the Yamahas. Everyone else gets confused and buys an Eavestaff Minipiano Pianette from ebay
My Dad was chatting with a Steinway agent a few weeks back who said that the most common profession of people who buy a new Steinway is Doctors. In fact it wasn't Doctors it was something above Doctors... consultants I think it was. Apparently they all need Steinway grands to go in their hallway.
