Yeah I'm not a fan of the RH3 in the Kronos either .... it does feel cheap and nasty but the whole board feels a bit cheaply built to me when comparing it to a Motif XF or a JP-80 which are both built like tanks. The new SV-2 with the Kronos AP's and EP's will be a improvement in sound but not perhaps in build quality. I still believe my favorite all time DP action for a board that requires both AP and Ep's is the action on my CP1 ....

Dr P. any info on whether the 73-key SV-2 will use a waterfall action?

Cheers,

No idea whatsoever James but who knows these days ? I seems like everyone's looking for something that makes their board just the 1% different aren't they ?

I miss my CP1 action every day. Best DP action ever IMO.

Same "NW-Stage" keys that are in the CP5, correct?

Is this an ungraded hammer action, or an ungraded weighted action? If the latter, I wonder why it makes the CP1 & 5 weigh so dang much?

Ungraded ...its a very strange action for a stage piano ...but it works better then any other action I've played

I'm really disappointed in my SV1. Iv'e owned dozens of keyboards in 35 years. The EP's are great,I'll give Korg that but the AP's are really weak & insipid.........I want my money back.
It seems to me that what Korg has done is thrown in some really ordinary & quite poor, raw, acoustic piano samples & then thrown in an editor & expected us to do all the hard work & also thought they'd get away with it. They know exactly what good piano sounds are so why not have given us 5 or 6 good ones??
I'm really disappointed!!

Clicky keys are a common problem in DPs, esp those which are heavily played. It is the wear and tear over the years. The way to fix it is to change the keys.

There is a question on durability issue. Which DPs have clicky keys the fastest?

Good quality DPs should withstand quite many years of banging before the keys start to click.

Very exccessive pressure exerted will also cause the keys to click, to stick and become unusable.
