Also, are there any audio samples around? I didn't see any on the Synthogy website.

Thanks

I don't believe it is out yet but I am still wildly impressed with the Ivory Yamaha.

I'm getting close to picking up Ivory and while I was checking prices I saw the "Italian" piano (I assumed it was a Fazioli) at Sweetwater. There's no picture so you guys could be right about it not being available yet.

Yes, it's a Fazioli.

I found this:

No. (Assuming that all registered users would receive notification.) If I hear anything, I'll post it.
