Plan is to check out the N1X and see how I feel about it first, I'll kinda know if it will work for me or not if I get an hour or so on one...I have tried literally every "normal" top-end digital out there at the moment, (CLPs/CAs/GPs...MP11 etc.), even a NU1X, none of them made the cut for me as a piano replacement...I went with a RD2000 last year as I thought it was the best bang for buck, and most resell-able...the sound engine has a bit of life to it and the action isn't that bad; it's grand to do a bit of practice on, and it's great for composition with the computer etc. But even when the upright is dog out of tune I still gravitate to it.
Anyway, if I write off the hybrids, then I'll start trawling the secondhand market for uprights, basically whatever is decent and comes my way at a good price...something like a 90/00s U3; that will last me for many years to come kinda thing. It does seem like these hybrids are considered serious instruments, which is cool...this is really a long term plan; I think it'll be after christmas kinda thing, maybe this time next year even...but when I get a chance to play a N1X etc., I will drop back and post my thoughts.
