Which one is considered to better quality piano generally? I may buy one of them. I already tried GX2 but Shimmel is not my town, so I need to fly to other town to view and try Shimmel. I know pianos are all private but which considered to be more refined?
At first, I was considering Feurich 179 but the sound was not comparable to Kawai GX2. It is quite big investment, so it's hard to decide. I had hard time to sell previous grand piano so I will be very careful to choose grand piano at this time. It will be my last grand piano.
Shimmel price is little bit higher than Kawai but as it remained unsold for 1 year , I could make it same as Kawai.

The PE W 180 SMP is about 4,000 USD lower than the listed SMP of Kawai GX2 PE model (38,590 USD).
