I have been playing a digital piano for a few years and I now realise that I need to have a piano with an acoustic action in order to prepare myself for when I go out and use someone else's or even on teacher's acoustic piano. The completely different feel is the one major obstacle tripping me up.
I will not be getting an acoustic because I can only play late at night, and I have narrowed down to two options: a digital piano with real acoustic action like the NUx1, or a transacoustic piano.
My question for those of you who are familiar with either of these two is:
1. How updated are they and are the models that are available the exact same ones that came out years ago?
Doing my research I find that the last I heard of the NUx1 was a firmware upgrade that seems to eliminated the loud note problem.
As for the Transcoustic, the reviews on YouTube are up to six years old!
I'm trying to decide if it's worth buying now if these models, (especially the Transacoustic) have received updates since release.
If they haven't and new ones will be released, then I should wait till then because it's a large chunk of change.
2. Particularly with the Transacoustic, how many years have you had it and what kind of reliablity/ maintenance? My Yamaha gives a 6 year warranty but only on the acoustic piano part. They are silent about the digital part.
Thank you all!
