Rich, a wonderful report from the front - delighted to hear it! My guess is that digital pianos have crowded out consoles. Could that make sense?

Thanks everyone for giving me tips and helps, I took my family to check out that used 1986 Seiler piano, the previous owner was a German and he brought the piano over when he moved to Vancouver, I also saw that there is a dehumidifier inside the piano, it is not working anymore and will be removed. It seems like the piano has been well taken care of.

I was right about the sound, my wife and daughter like the sound a lot too, I actually don't mind the look anymore, I feel the satin finish looks natural to me now, haha. And also my 7 yr old daughter said she preferred the Seiler's piano keys than the U1.

And what a small world, when we were chatting in the store, we found out that the salesman's piano teacher was my daughter's current piano teacher! He learnt from the same piano teacher family 15-20 years ago. My daughter just started with this new teacher about a month ago, and her teacher mentioned she was going to ask someone to look for a suitable piano for my daughter and that was him! So besides we trust our instinct, we also believe in the salesman, a very humble person and from what I can see, a very talented pianist himself, and of course, we also got a good deal!

The piano will be delivered sometimes this week so we are all very excited! Thanks again all!

Welcome to the Seiler fraternity, Sin. There's a secret handshake, of course, and a yearly N. American reunion in Banff. It's usually just eight of us, but with your family we will boost our numbers this summer.

Wow, how long have you guys been doing that? Maybe my family can join in the future!
It would be a huge 37.5% increment in numbers!
