That's exactly why I got a digital rather than acoustic. Except if you're living in a large house, away from modern urban civilization, there really is no place for a loud and space-consuming acoustic piano...

Go for the one with the best touch. If you don't like the sound, you can later connect it to a keyboard and buy the amazing <a href="http://www.pianoteq.com">pianoteq</a> piano emulation software.

As BDB says, you will not be able to really practice touch sensitivity on a digital. But memory, fingerings, practicing difficult sections to get them up to tempo and general interpretation are all things you can work on a digital.

The best option for getting real acoustic-weight keys (though much much more expensive)would be to get an acoustic piano with digital system pre-installed into it. I know Kawai does this, I don't know who else. Laura, my piano partner, has a 6 ft grand with this system and the keys stay the same. Though the touch sensitivity of the digital part is actually less precise than the Yamaha digital keyboards. By the way, the touch weight settings on the Yamaha do nothing to the actual weight of the keys, but by producing the sound slightly later it fools your brain into thinking you have to press more. Very clever IMO.

That thing you said about the Yamaha is really interesting but to be honest I find it hard to belive. I mean I know when I exert more force on a key but... Anyway that really interested me, I will try the mechanism as soon as I can.

Well, after my last visit to stores I have tried several more models but the Yamaha (which is by the way CLP-230) remains to be the best.

The 230 is in our price range but I'd still like to have a bit heavier keyboard. I've read that CLP-F01 features the real mechanism (with the hammers etc) but is a bit more than I'd like to spend on a digital. Actually its price is twice that of the 230. I have not tried out the F01 but I find it hard to justify spending that much on a digital.

I have looked at the silent systems and they seem to be the best options but I can't find any dealer that sells these systems in my country... (Turkey)
