Times have passed when this would be called "futuristic." Not any more. This is the current and future state. Unless one is well versed and qualified, it might take a while to get the hardware, software and their interactions right - but once there, it's bliss.

Depends on who's playing the thing . . .

Try using an inline attenuator on the input.

Macbooks have very dense circuitry that causes all sorts of DC pollution of the analog out.

If the attenuator doesn't work, and you're adamant about using that macbook, Use a USB to Toslink converter, Then Toslink to a DAC, then into the NV5.

If it still has this noise after the Toslink dac, that means it's the NV5. You could never know for sure until you disconnect the jigawatts from these devices by using optical..

HI,

thanks for the replays, I will contact my dealer.

The correct video urls are:

https://vimeo.com/544483016
https://vimeo.com/544482914

Don't get me wrong - I love the instrument, I have never played a digital piano before where I completely forgot that it is sample based. You can hear it when you are very very attentive, but that is not the point for me. Important is that it sounds absolutely great, very spatial, and is super responsive, somehow alive. However, my model feels quite "beta". There have been other glitches took.

Interestingly, the problem seems to be related to the long pause (over a month not switched on) due to a problem with my hands. That is also the reason for the dust. My apologies

Aprileon - at first I thought the cracking noise was you shifting your feet on creaking floorboards. "Hey man, stop doing that so we can hear the noise from the piano!!" But yeah, crackling like that is definitely not normal, I haven't heard of that issue before.

The other issue Marcus had with line-in. I haven't had anything like that on my NV-10. I just tried setting the line-in to +10db, with the hardware line-in knob that the NV-10 has to full, and master volume to full. I can hear a very slight buzz from the speakers if I put my ear against the speaker grill, but pressing the pedal (with damper noise off) absolutely doesn't result in any sound at all, it's entirely unaffected. On Marcus's NV-5, it almost sounds like the pedal deactivates some kind of noise gate...

That noise (i couldn't discern on first hearing) was nothing like what I had. Mine sounded like the very Devil had got in there . . .screeching, tortured sound which totally obliterated the music.
