As mentioned above, the new key bed has now been replaced (as of Monday) as I wait to see how the new keys will do. As bennevis pointed out, his new keys looked no different than the ones that were replaced (same as with mine, likewise), so it will be interesting to see if the end results are equal.

Also, enjoying the new Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers (with subwoofer)* as this setup isn't really bad, for the price.

*Read all the details on the speakers, in the other post.

I thought you were planning to send the Klipsch speakers back (or refuse delivery on them, at least...)?

Either way, glad everything appears to working out for you.

James,

Actually, I am glad that I decided to keep the Klipsch speakers as they are better than I had originally expected. They are obviously not high end/hi-fi/high quality monitors by comparison, although they aren't bad, either.

There is more power in this setup than you would ever need for practical listening purposes, as the sub can be overly boomy, however, at lower and moderate volume levels, it is really pretty decent with good clarity in the higher treble range.

Don't know as to how long the setup may last, but $150 is certainly a fair price for better than average sound.

Good result, let's hope it holds out.

@spanishbuddha,

As for your question:

Actually, no, as the technician arrived with another helper so they could carry out the V-Piano to their vehicle and take it back to the shop. My technician said that V-Piano had to be opened up there since it was going to be a somewhat delicate procedure getting to the keyboard assembly, as the V-Piano itself opens up like a "clam shell," he said.

I had the entire key bed assembly replaced (as you can see in the photo) as this contains a new action, as well. The ivory key tops look just about the same as the old ones, so I am not sure as to how they will do as of yet. Remember that bennevis said that his key replacements also looked the same, although his have held up just fine on his account. The only difference being that his piano came back to him from the shop with a note attached, saying that only the "white keys" had been replaced.

So, it looks like we still don't get a definitive look at the inner workings of the V-Piano. Also, even if he had opened it up at my place, I don't have a camera so pictures couldn't have been taken, anyway.

However, the new keys really do look and feel nice!
