I recently purchased a KDP-120 as I was lucky enough to find one in stock locally. I played the floor model and liked it well enough but noticed that D6 to about G6 has a weird, tinny, almost overdriven sound. I figured it was just my ears and I'd get used to it but after buying it and having it for about a month it bothers me any time I play those notes. In particular the actual D6 and G6 sound so bad to me, with the notes in between less so.

This can't just be my ears right? I listened to demos online and tried to pick out when they played those notes but everything sounds fine in general. I know this piano is newish but wondering if there are any other owners out there that can confirm this? Am I just like missing a frequency in my ears? I feel like I'm crazy, but I just cannot get used to those notes and the way they sound.

I'll move it and delete, sorry.

EDIT: Guess I can't delete it, but please disregard.
