I believe Gamma has a E-200 and not a K-200. However I think only difference is the finish of the piano but I’m not sure if there might be any other difference in the materials.

I have a K-200 ATX3 and super happy with it ☺️

Did you check the hammer shanks, Boloulus? I (briefly) checked in my piano, and I can't see any obvious damage to the shanks (after 1.5 years of daily use). But I almost never play loudly.

I haven’t checked them recently but I would be very surprised if this was an widespread issue considering how many of these pianos are sold. Next time I get a chance I will have a look. When I had it tuned this summer the technician didn’t mentioned anything about this.

Where is the thread about these issues?

There is already a thin foam-like strip on the metal stop bar in my piano, most likely for that purpose. Thinking more about this, this may be one of the reasons why let-off distance is often set a bit larger on silent pianos. You need to take into account the thickness of that foam. You want the hammer to fully release before it touches the foam, but then the hammer head should not touch the string after compressing the foam. In practice I think you can regulate things tighter than default factory regulation though. I have seen a video of a technician who sets the let-off distance to normal on a K300 ATX3. But perhaps you then run the risk that you have to adjust things again somewhere down the road.
