Lies! That is clearly your music/exercise/science room. Either that or music is even more complicated than I even imagined. Maybe the reason I'm so bad at the piano is that I never consult the periodic table wink

Great space piRround thumb

Haha! Good catch. If the exercise equipment was anywhere else it would never get used. And that poster is the Periodic Table of Music Notation!

Here's some evidence:

The NV10 is gone (action too loud in my wife's ears, literally). Here's my new setup, with an MP11SE:

(The playpen is still there, by the way. I just had to put it away in order to finish the setup; that's also when I took the pictures.)

To be honest, I don't miss the NV10. The MP11SE is good enough for me, and will stay good enough for me for a long, long time. I'm lucky to have the chance to play on such a great digital piano.

Looks great - though I wonder what use the huge speakers are if even the sound of a silenced piano is too loud for your spouse wink

Well, Morten, it was the (acoustic) action that was too loud for my wife. Playing the NV10 at daytime, with loudspeakers on, was fine, but at night, when the world is more silent, the mere thumping of the hammers (with me playing in silent mode) got on my wife's nerves. It's different with the MP11SE now, as its action is less loud. The speakers are for daytime use.

Got it.
My VPC1 was incredibly silent - and the MP11SE action is somewhat similar to my understanding. Loved that action wink

Here's my piano room. It got small very quickly. Estonia 190 just delivered an hour ago.

This thing is clean in and out and the hammers show very little signs of wear.

And the ramp I made performed brilliantly (patting myself on the back lol) smile

Can anybody tell me why only links loaded and not the images? This photo system is NOT user friendly.

Great photos and lovely piano!!!

If you're on a laptop/desktop, you can right click, do "view photo" and select a direct link, which gets you only the link to the photo itself (ending in jpg):

It will take awhile before it feels ‘real’ — just enjoy 😉

Bob A,
Fixed the image links.

Love the piano.
I've had my Estonia almost 10 years and I still smile every time I see it / play it.

Enjoy!

Well you won't have to worry about someone plunking down on a sofa in there and saying "play something for me..."
