I now realise that I am definately a \'dry\' man (!), in that I\'m looking for the pianist\'s prespective in a piano sample. I\'m thinking of buying the Grandioso Steinway next but before I do, I need to clear a few things up...
1) One of the demos on the Post site reveals a rather uneven amount of noise with certain samples across the keyboard. Is the Steinway as noise free as the new Bosendorfer?
2) I remember someone on this forum complaining about the relatively \'dull\' tone of the Post Steinway. Is this the case and if so, is it the result of noise reduction? Whatever noise reduction has been used on the Bosendorfer passes my test. How does it compare with the Bosendorfer in this respect? Brigher/duller?
3) Whilst the Post Bosendorfer has lovely sympathetic resonances, I want more! Again, how does the Steinway compare in this respect?
4) Any other comments? I\'m interested in pros and cons.
