Does anybody know if the Samick SU-118 & Young Chang U-121, have these features?

A three-dimensional plate

Ribs mitered into the case

Weighted and balanced keys

Close-grained spruce soundboard

Thanks.

OK, I'll bite: what's a three-dimensional plate? It would seem that a two-dimensional plate would be pretty useless...

Many plates are advertized as 3D, but few actually are. The only way to tell is to wear 3D glasses.

Be careful about the marketing hype you pay attention to Tozoni.

Its more important how well a piano is made rather than marketing hype about how its made.
