I've tried the NV10 twice before. And ... yes, it's VERY nice. After playing an upright for 12 years, followed by this Clav for 12 years, the Novus was a dream.
I got to play the NV10 and it is very nice. Worth the few hours drive to Cleveland area to try it out.
But it's been a year since the last time. I want to try both the NV10 and the N1X at nearly the same time. So that'll be my mission early next year.
On my first try I did prefer the N1X because it felt more sturdy, but then I came back and after an hour I was completely in love with the NV10 action - and its sound which I like way more than the N1X. The kawai action feels more like a real grand piano than the N1X.
That's something I want to discover as soon as I get the chance.
It sucks that shops around you are Yamaha or Kawai exclusive, I find it very useful to be able to quickly go from one to the other to compare.
The Kawai shop here in Raleigh (Maus Piano) carries a variety of acoustics, but only Kawai grands. There's a Yamaha shop here (Ruggero Piano) ... with an N1X to show ... but procrastination early in the year, followed by virus jail later on, has kept me away all year.
If not for the current health situation it would be easy enough to shuttle between the two shops in a single afternoon. They're only 8 miles apart.
But in western Pennsylvania ... I scoured the interwebs for both Kawai and Yamaha shops within many miles of Pittsburgh.
Their only Yamaha shop suits me just fine. Modern Piano is very nearby in Wexford.
But of the two Kawai shops, one is around sixty miles away to the southeast, and it's a small shop.
The other is 100 miles west. But it's a big shop. In a nice neighborhood. So it's a more attractive place to pay a visit.
Wifey would be more likely to tag along on that trip ... assuming there's the prospect of fine dining in the area.
