Living in a studio in Paris, I wanted a baby grand piano with a good muffler system to play without disturbing and make computer music.
I have tried many pianos in a shop in Paris, near the Père Lachaise, and A1 has my full attention: among the least 1m50 was the one who had the most convincing bass, beautiful Acute medium, and far more convincing than others installed retrospectively quiet system.

The feel is very accurate, yamaha what, and the beautiful sound, very clean, which can be a quality as a default ...
It offers a beautiful musicality and balanced sound, the bass is sufficient which sets it apart from other small pianos.
It is very well made, and muffler system is fine, whatever silent mode, stock exhaust is modified, it does not offer quite the same precision, especially in the repeated notes.
Please note that the velocity curve MIDI is reworking: I took some time to find the ideal response curve of Pianoteq.

Very happy I got to 12,000 € OCCAZ more expensive than others, but the system silent nothing to do with competition, and mechanical and invoice are at the top also in line C1 and C3.
A highly sought after opportunity piano, I'm lucky!
