I speculated about the possibility of an N1 earlier in the year, so am inclined to believe any rumours about a smaller, lower-cost N1.

Cheers,
James

Well a new model will always come, sooner or later. Wait for the next January, soon the answer will be shown in public.

Anyone heard any rumors as to whether Yamaha will finally update the sound technology in these otherwise top-of-the-line instruments?

Come to think of it, why do so many here post under names other than their own? Either you stand behind your words or you don't.

I've never understood this - it's not like we're discussing social issues that could come back to our employers to hinder our next promotion .... never mind.

That's kind of like saying if you're not doing anything wrong you don't have anything to worry about. No one is innocent enough if they really want to get you, so why give them any ammo?

I know what you're saying, but there is a certain freedom in anonymity. You get to say what's on your mind without too much worry of blowback. In a way it encourages real honesty. We're all here for the DPs, not unintentional fallout from having what we say come back to haunt us somehow.

If potential employers found absolutely nothing about you online, that would make them even more suspicious. You don't want your drunken party pics on the Web, but OTOH being a complete non-entity isn't very desirable either.

Personally, I tend to distrust people if they don't seem to have at least one interesting hobby (such as playing piano). I certainly wouldn't hire them, because obviously they don't get the whole work-life balance thing right, so they might be perpetually stressed out.

Strange, because on Amazon I usually dismiss reviews by nickname editors and focus on what the real-name reviewers have to say. I think it encourages honesty if your actual name is attached to a post, as opposed to a disposable nick. If somebody has an axe to grind it always seems to happen as a nick.

I don't think employers would take much of a shine to my comments regarding corporations and their management. A bit of anonymity keeps me from having to muzzle myself in my off hours too.

But that's different. The pool of posters there is so huge that you might not encounter the same one twice for quite some time, even if you shop a lot. And who really bothers to track them for individual consistency?

Reading the posts here on PW, over time you can get a feel for the personality of the poster, real name or not.

Ive found a link on another forum which gives details of the N1 and a photo....heres an extrac of what it says...

Meanwhile, the instrument’s speaker system has been designed
to ensure that this sound is heard best at the playing position. Athree-way system, featuring woofer, mid-range, and tweeter speakers,
reproduces the rich, natural resonance of the soundboard accurately. What’s more, each of the low, mid, and high frequency
bands has been given its own amplifier to prevent interference between bands. This innovative configuration allows the instrument’s
outstanding sound system to reproduce the nuances of each individual note.
The AvantGrand N1 also offers realistic piano action. The nuanced touch and response of the grand piano are an essential standard
yardstick for piano quality.
Beyond the AvantGrand’s compact size, striking design, sound, touch, and functionality, teachers, students, performers, hobbyists,
apartment dwellers, schools, and institutions with small practice rooms will appreciate the competitive price point compared
to concert acoustic pianos, and the fact that the instrument requires no tuning. In addition to the remarkable grand piano sound
sample, the N1 also features electronic piano and harpsichord voices.
The AvantGrand N1 (MSRP: $9,999) is scheduled to ship in April 2011.

It says it offers a 'realistic' piano action which suggests its not a real grand piano action as in the N2 and N3....looks wise its very similar to the N2 except for the back...the pedals are mounted on a wooden frame which also acts as a rear stabiliser for the piano...

Yes here it is.....it appears to be a trade magazine which is posted online....

http://www.musictrades.com/NewProducts.pdf

My nearest Avantgrand stockist in the UK does the N2 for £7500 ($11700) which is about 15% below RRP but I really couldnt justify paying that amount , however , if the N1 retails at $10,000 (about £6500) and sells at about $8000 (£5200) I will take a serious look at it...
