I am looking for a piano:
- that has keys that feel like a real piano (the majority of weighted keys I tried don't feel like a real piano)
- which can support headphones (jack or bluetooth)
- which is a good long term investment
- on which you can add musical instruments via a USB port (strings, drums, etc.)
- which has a recording function (more then one track is a plus)
not a requirement, but a plus:
- on which one can play over the recording and make a new recording with this new track
- which could have cellphone apps connectivity in the future...? (I'm thinking long term)
I talked with the following stores:
- Piano Vertu: Kawai K-200 new $ 8k / Kawai K-300 $ 10k new / Used Yamaha U3 $ 8k / NV10 new $ 11k
- Piano Prestige: the seller advised me to go with a Hailun and to set up the Magic Star pianodisc system in it.
- Piano Héritage: U1 new $ 11k
- Steinway & Sons: no "silent" piano (digital & acoustic)
- Nabaldian: U1 used $ 4.5k
- Archambault: U1 new $ 11k
With a budget of about $ 10k.
I'm hesitating between the NV10, K200 / K300 or U1.
The NV10 seems to be more promising, but as I understand it, it is completely digital and I'm afraid it will lose its value in the long run.
So many questions :)
- I am rather skeptical of the Magic Star pianodisc system. What do you think about it?
- What do you think of the NV10, K200 / K300 or U1? Do these choices make sense? What would be the best choice considering my needs?
- Are there other pianos that I should be considering?
What are your advises?
Thank you !! :)
