I got reply the Ibach F2 was assembled in Korea with German parts from the dealer. The sound was beautiful but I was not 100% sure its longevity stability.

Anyway I've decided to go with Kawai RX3. I heard from web research that Kawai RX3 has the problem that strings in high treble section easily snap but I am a tuner.

I also tried Kawai GX2 but I prefer RX3 sound. Previously I had Young Chang U121 upright piano since 1994, and this is my first grand piano so this is big upgrade!

Congratualations !

I have an RX-2 and I am sure you will be much satisfied upgrading from an upright.
At least that was the case for me back then.

Yes, by 2015 I believe they were only using M3 actions. This looks just like the M3 action on my 2018 GL10. Congratulations, Kawais are wonderful pianos and the RX3 is a great size. This is a top notch piano. Be sure to post pictures and recordings if you can.

Congrats - Enjoy

Congratulations, I bet it sounds lovely!

Also, I can say from personal experience that going from owning an upright to owning a grand is so, so exciting, and very satisfying!! smile

Please share photos if you can!
