Hello,

I used a translator.
I thought it was granted to post in public as there was no text in the mail who said something like it may contain trade secrets and vice versa.

If it's a problem, I won't do it anymore and you should delete my post.
I have reported the post to the moderator.

Best,

My apologies, I somehow thought that were a German speaker, and had therefore contacted the Lachnit developers in your native language.

Maybe so, but I believe it's courteous to the individual to double-check before posting.
For example:

"Thank you for your reply. Would it be okay to re-post your response on the PianoWorld forum?"
etc.

I obviously cannot speaker for this individual (Friedrich Lachnit?), however I would feel rather aggrieved if information I had written via a private message or email was reposted publicly without consent.

Kind regards,

No. I am a native German speaker and contacted them in German.
Then for make it readable here and because of laziness, I did use deepl for the translation.
It is true however, that it might be an option to just make a vacation to Wien, and then as I happen to pass by, to test it.

Best Regards

LOL, when I read "spends 40 hours custom-regulating each key", my first thought was - what a BS, he can't spend 40 hours on each key! This would be like almost 2 man-years spent on 1 keyboard, the price would be in the used Steinway range!
So, I went to their web site - they spend 40 hours total on one keybord for approx $4K of added price, i.e. $100/hour. The new felt and weights are complimentary. Not bad for piano technicians. I am curious how many they sell.
And why doesn't Kawai bother doing these improvements? Looks strange for me, especially considering that they take acoustic piano regulation very seriously.

Regulating a VPC takes 40 hours? Let's go ask the guys on the Tuner/Tech forum what they think of that!

I assume the regulation includes fitting the new sensors and calibrating them. There isn't an awful lot in the action to regulate.
