What about a self-dusting piano?
Robotic arms attached to the piano (hidden when not in use) automatically sense excess dust and go to work. We can call this system the Shamalamabob NV10 (optional add-on). wink

After 2 months of waiting .. it finally arrived, and I am blown away. Very impressive action and sound quality.

There are something I couldn't realize from the manual:

1. It is heavy. Almost 600 lbs including the bottom wooden pallet and wrappings of two huge boxes. It took quite some efforts to assemble. I'd recommend to move/assemble it with more than 2 guys.

2. It delivers stunning and powerful sound. For a living room with 20'x18'x8' on hardwood floor, it is almost too powerful. Even the volume dialed to10 o'clock, the wood floor shakes a lot ... can feel the strong vibration from my feet. But I guess even an acoustic grand will do that easily since the floor is not solid. Should it be placed on a carpet?

That is one sexy looking piano. Congratulations!

I've been playing my N1X for 4 hours today (on and off) and I still don't want to close the fallboard.

God Bless,
David

Is there anyone here who has had the chance of playing both the N1 and the N1X?
If so, do you truly feel the N1X to be a much better instrument despite similar specs to the N1?
Although the action is identical in terms of design, dimensions, etc.., Yamaha could’ve still improved upon it.
For example: better implementation, regulation, curation, and overall attention given by higher level technicians. I’m speculating, but still I’m intrigued.

I haven’t yet had the courage to open mine but from marketing pictures it seems the jack is now also plastic. On the N1 only the repetition lever was plastic. That’s not something related to the keyboard feel though, rather than to durability of the action. But on the other hand it means Yamaha changed something in the action so they might have also changed other parameters that are not apparent but contribute to different (improved) feel.

CG, you surely meant to say carbon fiber; plastic is what the cheapskates at Kawai use! wink

Seriously: what if Yamaha decided to quietly up the ante for the N1X to make it a direct NV10 competitor?
Price-wise it would seem like a hypothetical N2X would be competing against the NV10; however, there will be no N2X (sorry), so that assignment now goes to the cheaper N1X. So yes, I speculate, Yamaha is out to get Kawai and their weapon of choice is the N1X! laugh

Actually, probably not. "Having kittens" is more for alarm than excitement, in the English vernacular. Good try, though. eek

I can feel the eagerness of your anticipation.

I've owned my N1X for almost two months now and I still get a release of the good feeling hormones when I see and play the piano.

It's like a new car smell that is never going to go away. smile

God Bless,
David

Congratulations.

Sorry you have to wait so long. Hopefully, you'll get it earlier. I received mine a few weeks earlier than anticipated. It was a pleasant surprise.

God bless,
David
