Goddammit, tone snobs are everywhere! :lol:

Some people say the Stuart has a distinctly Australian sound - as clear and bright as sun on the beach. But in Australia, the instrument has its critics. Pianist and music professor Geoffrey Lancaster would not say this piano is "sunny."

"I find the sounds very cold," Lancaster says. "They don't have that dimension of warmth that, say, a great Steinway or a great Bosendorfer has. It's this clarity - this so-called clarity or crystalline quality, it's really quite icy."

guys, having spent time in classical music circles in academia, I can honestly tell you that guitar tone snobs are NOTHING compared to classical instrument tone snobs.

I can see the similarities.

"I find the sounds very cold," Lancaster says. "They don't have that dimension of warmth that, say, a great Les Paul or a great PRS has. It's this clarity - this so-called clarity or crystalline quality, it's really quite icy. The bottom end is too loose and flubby, while the high end is quite brittle and fizzy"
