Well, honestly, I hesitate to mess with this one.... But the smallest subdivision of music that really could be considered "great" is a phrase, not a measure. This is like looking at all the cars in the world and asking which is the greatest bolt or washer. Only a c...

Well.... I had so much high hope for this RD-2000. But I really didn't enjoy tonights first gig with it. Something about it just made me feel very unconnected to the instrument, and I thought everything sounded 'fake' and quite 'plastic' in a band context. (I was running in true ...

Mark, The only pianos where the tune above and then go down to pitch doesn't work are precisely the C type pianos defined in "Different Strokes", where the NSL length/friction in the bearing points are such that the motion down of the tuning lever (CCW) has no effect ...

If you're only going to have 30 GB left, and you definitely want to put it on SSD, you might as well bite the bullet now and get another SSD. 30 GB isn't really enough for your future needs. (Having said that, I only have 20 GB spare; works fine after I transferred my holiday vid...

The OP hasn't posted since February. Hopefully he comes back. I think everyone's goal here is to enjoy playing piano. I did start with a method book, but transitioned to playing repertoire pieces from the Alfred's Masterwork Classics series. That then lead to following the RCM sy...

Whether it's worth it probably strongly depends on how good the speakers of your DP are already, and which direction they face. I wouldn't have thought they'd be optimized for near-field listening though. Only one way to find out. Order online and send it back within 14 days if...
