This is probably the only 8Dio VI worth looking at for a player.
It has nice subdued vintage sound, and as far as I know is the only 8Dio lib that has half-pedaling, Una Corda, and sympathetic resonances implemented, it is relatively new (2015), big - 42,643 samples, 23.8 GB (45.2 GB uncompressed), and has 6 mics.
But it requires KONTAKT FULL.
There are few nice reviews on Youtube that show what options are available, and let you hear the piano itself, not the mix like on 8Dio website.

Thanks for this info! One video was ok on youtube, but I struggle to find more example performances... some classical music would be nice..
Definitely sounds like a characteristic tone. Would be interesting if top high or very low notes sound too "rough" are detuned. Would be a problem if
it's too extreme.

Which version of Kontakt is required?

NI is really tricky with Kontakt. Time and again I find libraries that won't work with my version until I replace Kontakt with a newer version.
I've been through nearly a dozen Kontakt revisions over the past ten years, and it's getting tedious.
