However with the fix implemented by Yamaha, assuming they fixed it in the way I proposed and Herq implementing it, the resulting note volume would be neither loud, nor quiet and most probably repeats the previous note. I strongly believe that's something piano creators would have liked smile Because although the key suddenly lightens up, it still produces a proper note smile I might be wrong though.

I think they actually did a better job. Which is not surprising given their resources and the fact this is their business. The implementation I had was kind of an on/off thing, such that if the timing didn’t fit the predefined parameters the fix wouldn’t do anything and a loud note could still sound (like with Gombessa’s example). Now the thing just works. And like you said, a note still sounds, instead of being completely silent.
I’m very satisfied both with Yamaha in general and with their technical support. The piano services supervisor handling my case was very professional and direct to the point.
I was also about to get back in the market because this issue was driving me nuts. I’m now a happy owner, I’ll stay with the NU1 for a few more years and will likely not hesitate in purchasing another Yamaha. And hopefully, with this problem fixed, the NU1 will no longer lose too much of its value when it’s time to move on.

I have no idea if the action of the NU1X "feels" any different to any of the other N#X pianos. I don't currently have access to any of the Hybrids for trial.

It's just a guess on my part since it is a verticle upright action versus a grand action. Inertia may help the feel of the action since it isn't working against gravity. <scratch_chin>Hmmm...</scratch_chin>
