    I seem to have missed that. I loved a League of their own - impressive director. RIP Penny Marshall!

    500 dollars of shininess. 😬 Yumi had to work until 11pm last night so it was set up when she got home. Hopefully she'll get some time to play it tonight before we leave for Cal/Col. Thanks for the recommendation. The Kawai dealer here was awesome and great to work with.

    Kawai CA78 - just got it set up yesterday. This thing is heavy but we got it to the third floor. It’s leaps and bounds better than my old Casio PS20.

    Digital pianos

    OK, went to try out some Yamahas yesterday and went to the Kawai showroom today. Wasn't really wowed by any of the Yamahas. The feel of the keys on the Kawai CA 78/98 (GF II) were great. Although the sound out of the 98 was nicer, I might go for the 78 just based on cost. Unfortunately, they didn't have any CA58 or MP11SE to try. From what I have read, the GF II are slightly better than the action on the 58 or MP11. Now, I just need to figure out if I want to fork out an extra 500 to get the shiny black vs the matte/satin black. Shiny...

    I was looking at the Kawaii CA58 and it seems pretty awesome. What is a good sturdy sound for the MP11? No speakers on the MP11, what type of speakers to use, where to place them? How does the MP11 compare to the Roland FP-90 (the FP-800 doesn't seem to be around anymore).

    No room for real piano or keeping it in tune and this will be on the third floor.

    Digital pianos

    I am planning to get Yumi a digital piano for Christmas. She has been playing since she was young (she is used to an acoustic piano). I have an old Casio PS-20 (https://www.musiciansfriend.com/keyboards-midi/casio-ps-20-88-key-digital-piano) from 2002 which does have hammer weighted action but I am sure the technology has come a long way since then. I was looking at the Yamaha Arius 163B since I have heard good things about Yamaha. I listened to both this one and the 143 and this one certainly had a better sound. Anything that might be better to look at without completely breaking the bank? Is it worth upgrading to the Yamaha Clavinova 625? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/YDP163BW--yamaha-arius-ydp-163b-black-walnut https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/CLP625B--yamaha-clavinova-clp-625-matte-black

    I am very tempted to get the new Nikon full frame mirrorless Z6. Just worried about kinks that might need to be worked out. I have a lot of Nikon glass that I would use with the adapter for now until they develop more Z glass. Thought? Wait for the next edition?
