Here's the the thing. What really justifies one piano being better than the other in sound quality considering this is such a "subjective" opinion by all?
A few examples here. First off a Yamaha acoustic piano sounds differernt than a Baldwin. A Baldwin sounds different than a Steinway, and a Steinway doesn't sound like a Kurzweil. Being that these are ALL good name brand acoustic pianos, they ALL sound great. We just all have our preference.
It's the same with our keyboards. Be it a Casio WK 35/3700, Yamaha Tyros/PSR-3000, Korg PA (any model), Ketron SD-1, or Roland G-70. Thing is they ALL sound good and sound like a real piano. Even the low end Casio's now have REALLY good piano samples. Again we just all have different taste in piano sounds.
I agree! I like to compare other tones vs piano tones. Like? Did you know there was a scatvoice on the WK3700? I wonder what it sounds like in comparison to a tryos2? I played with that tone for some time last night it is very neat!
