The piano touch is very important to me and the Casio PX-350 that i used now is not satisfying.

The reason I posted about those specific models is their action, K-200 has a is pure upright piano action and the NV-5 I believe has the same action with the adjustment on its hammers (since there are no strings). Price also is an issue too.

Locally i can buy only acoustic pianos and low end digitals.

Also as i have posted before I was thinking about MP11se which is more into my price range but I am skeptical about it since i will have to buy it unseen ( internet order from abroad) also a bit skeptical about some minor key reported issues ( i am not going to have local support) and also is about to be 3 years old soon.

Any thoughts on that please

Thanks again

I have the MP11, and got it when they first came out. The only issues I have had with the keys are:

- the piece of metal across the front got slightly pushed in and some of the keys in the middle were rubbing against it. Once I realized this happened, it didn't take much to just pull on it to get it back in place

- with humidity changes I would get a clacking sound with one key, but that isn't consistently there, especially now that I'm in a more consistent environment.

Both of these things I consider minor and are far outweighed by the enjoyment I've had in playing this instrument. My piano tech, who used to be a concert pianist, tested it out one day and fell in love with it, both the sound and feel. Keep in mind, there's a lot fo tweaking you'll want to do in the Virtual Technician, but it's so nice that's available to you.

If you aren't able to test it out, perhaps you can test out the CA series which I believe has the same or similar action, but even if you can't test that out, it's probably the best action short of hybrid grands.

Since the MP11SE was released October 2017 (according to my research) when is expected to be updated?
What is expected to be updated in the new model?
