    Ivory - is the "Italian" piano worth it?

    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:

    Here is the Ilio press release (January 2006) about the Fazioli, and here a photo preview can be found.

    Yes, this was all announced back at NAMM. At this point everyone is just waiting for it's release, hence this discussion.
