    I'm 99% gonna get my dad a 4th gen apple watch for his birthday/christmas. He has had heart issues recently, so it seems like a good option.

    Realistic SA-10 as a headphone amp?

    Oh, you're looking to hire consultants? You should have started with the rate you're looking to pay.

    right, we get that. This probably isn't the forum you are looking for. No one was offended.

    Italian bikes are all too small for me. I like the triumph and bmw.

    Digital pianos

    quick look says the mp11 and ca58 have basically the same action. The mp11 is mostly for people who will be playing on stage or portably, so it doesn’t have a big advantage for you guys. I’d favor kawai’s’ integrated systems if the price isn’t a barrier. They do a pretty amazing job of integrating, and use an actual piano soundboard for their resonance, so it feels right. The FP90 is a VERY highly regarded piano. I wouldn’t rule it out over something else for someone else. I don’t think it’s a bad choice. If you’re buying new, dealer matters, so go with the dealer you trust for either. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Have you tried the new high-end Kawai, Yamaha, Roland, or Nord pianos? They’re pretty amazing. The kawai mp11 has the same action as their $20k grand for example.

    I’m personally of the opinion that it takes a very good piano to be better than the best digital pianos, and digitals are a lot easier to keep in good condition. That said, if you can find a kawai, yamaha, or comparable full sized upright, it might also be a good option in a similar price range. https://www.pianoworld.com is where I go to find out about individual pianos, digital and analog.

    You should find a local kawai dealer and try those.
