Thanks again to everyone for your input. As it happens, a ham radio buddy I know on the other side of the island has an MP11SE and was kind enough to let me give his a spin. Obviously having never tried the other suggestions here, I'm in no position to compare it to those but, it was good enough that it will serve as a fine substitute for my Steinway when I have to run silent and that is what I was after. Nothing will be exactly the same, but this will certainly be close enough to do the job. So, this evening I pulled the trigger on an MP11SE. I was even able to get the "free" shipping down to only $135. I guess I'll now have the option of the MP11's built in voices or use it as just a controller. I didn't really want to duplicate the functionality I already have with the Pianoteq, but that's okay.

I think after you have had the MP11SE for a bit, you will find that you use VSTs less frequently …. if at all.

I still try VSTs now and then (usually after reading some forum member's enthusiasm for one) but quickly return to native sound of MP11SE.

I've had the MPSE11 that I finally settled on for a week now and just thought I'd report back. Bottom line: I'm very happy with it. I'm glad I didn't go for anything with a lighter action. This action continues to feel very reasonably close to the action of my B, but any lighter would be not what I needed. It'not exactly the same as the B of course, but certainly good enough to do the job. The built in SK EX sound is very nice, although I still prefer the S&S B simulation from the Pianoteq VST. I've worked with that quite a bit to get it as close as possible to my real B. However, as I play more, I may find Kawai's native sound grows on me. In any event, I'm quite happy with the MP11SE and want to say thanks to all who took their time to share their thoughts with me here. Mahalo nui loa!
