I haven't played one, but from all reports, the Yamaha AvantGrand is unsurpassed. Not very giggable, though, if that's a concern...

A 9 foot concert grand. True, that's not a digital. But if money were no object, I wouldn't get a digital. smile

OK. If money were SLIGHTLY relevant, I'd go try out a Yamaha Avant Grand or the new Roland V Grand.

I agree with MacMacMac - If money were no object, I'd buy an acoustic - for me it would be a Fazioli 9'2" concert grand....

I'm waiting for an expert on digital to tell me which one to consider because the AG is a waste of money. wink

I'd get one of those digital player grands that you can input any music file into, and it will play back a piano rendition of it, even if it is vocal or symphonic music. These are the most expensive digitals out there.

Kawai MP-10 + expensive computer + solar panels

edit: (also a Steinway B to put in the room next door since I will have more rooms than I know what to do with after buying the Taj Mahal)

edit 2: after a quick check of wikipedia, apparently the Taj Mahal is not very livable but that's OK since I will have also bought every apartment building in New York City

edit 3: or maybe just one of these although I could probably just buy every single piano company and have them join forces to build me exactly what I want.

I'm so impressed by Korg Kronos, especially for the 4GB piano...

But I'm afraid it costs to much for an amateur!

CVP409GP.
If time and space where not a problem, I would enjoy to buy a baby grand or larger that is not tunable anymore, and a CASIO PX330 and built my own sound system and action and MIDI controller into that.

If money were no choice I'd hire Bösendorfer, Steinway and\or Yamaha to come up with a digital piano with the action from a nine footer.

A very nice mid-size grand (I'm partial to 7' offerings) from each of Steinway and Bechstein, and a Bosey Imperial for those thunderous days.

Then, whilst still in acquisitive mood, an MP10, RD700NX, VGrand and N3, with a very nice sound system for the stage pianos.

And since I'm still dreaming, world peace, an end to suffering, and a San Diego climate. Oh, wait! Without the pain, how would we evolve?

no DP... It would be a Bosendorfer 290 Imperial or a Kawai Shigeru EX

It'd be between the Steinway Model B, the Bosendorfer 290 Imperial, or the Kawai Shigeru EX, in my own private hall.

Good question! If money were not object, I wouldn't buy a digital piano.

I'd get something like the following -- and a country estate where I could play to my heart's content without disturbing neighbors:

Kawai Shigeru EX

Well, I'm going to take a slightly different approach from some of you........

If Money was no object - and I mean, really, no object, then I'd buy Bosendofer off Yamaha.......... smile

........I'd probably pick up Fazioli and Steinway too, while I'm at it..........what the heck, I'll grab Kawai while I'm in the mood!

.......and then go on a massive capital investment project in R&D, music education for children, and give them access to musical opportunities that they may have otherwise missed out on, and start tearing up the market so that more and more people can have access to such beautiful instruments.......

......yes, I'm sure this would fly in the face of some people;s reasoning, but wouldn't it be great for any of us to be able to obtain what are some of the most beautiful instruments in the world?

..........you did say money was no object, right?

If it were down to a choice of just 1 instrument, it would be an Imperial 290, bought at the factory in Austria. I'd spend how ever long it takes watching my own Piano being built. I want to be there when the first bits of timber arrive in the factory, sit in on all the voicings, and be there at the last moment when it commences the long journey to New Zealand.............and that would be a life-long dream come true.

..........and if I could afford all that...............then finding a place to put it wouldn't be too hard.
