The N2 has been going for 8/9 K for a while. If anything it should sell for less now that it seems 10 years behind the competition.
11K is armed -with bs- robbery. That dealer should be apprehended by the authorities!

The ivory will wear off quickly (no pun intended), the vibrator feels okay initially, but then the artificiality of it starts creeping in; size is relative, but I’d rather the robustness of the N1X; it’s like a little tank sitting there and commanding r.e.s.p.e.c.t!

Congrats on the new piano! Different folks will have different opinions, but I have a theory on why everyone is looking ahead to the N2X: it's because the N2 was so darned good!

Don't worry about your purchase price. It won't matter in the long term... so get your money's worth! Enjoy it, and don't look back! smile

I think this is bad advice:

Many of us have had regret over a purchase price. But "don't worry" is not a good practice because you'll be apt to make the same mistake again in the future.

If you think you paid too much last time ... take steps to NOT repeat the mistake.
If you think your overpay is the result of not negotiating the price, then remember these few things:
1. The seller needs your money more than you need his merchandise. Always.
2. There is seldom a lack of competition ... but we often fail to see it. Look in the mirror. You are the competition. The seller is competing for your money. Let him work for it.
3. Don't look at a negotiating as "haggling". It need not be. For me it is simpler: I just make an offer. That's all there is. An offer, accepted or rejected. End of story.

People in many cultures (including the US) recoil in horror at the notion of haggling. In the majority of the world, it's just the norm, and is how business gets done.

I really like Mac's characterization here. Don't think of it has haggling. Just walk in with a price you want to pay and offer it. Take into consideration the extras (delivery, taxes, extended warranty, etc.) and make a fully-delivered-and-set-up price if it makes it easier. The worst that can happen is they say no thanks. And even that doesn't impact your ability to make another offer, or change your mind and pay their asking price.

Gombessa: You've captured some things that I omitted earlier.

1. Yes, consider the whole package all-in: taxes, delivery, options ... everything.
Never itemize. (Your wallet doesn't itemize. There's a total number and nothing more, right?)

2. Yes, the worst they can say is no.
And for me, their "no" translates into my "see ya later".
So there really is no haggling. I never make a second offer.
