Steinway Piano Sound and Kurzweil CUP2 Digital Piano - Find out more!

UPDATED REVIEW: April 11, 2013 Most great pianists consider the Steinway acoustic pianos to be the benchmark of piano tone. In other words, Steinway is what all other piano brands are measured by. The Steinway piano company has been hand-making professional Upright & Grand Pianos in New York for over 100 years and I have played and sold Steinway pianos and can tell you that they do have the ultimate Grand Piano tone. In fact, over 90% of all classical pianists, orchestras, and composers insist on playing Steinway pianos. So when digital piano manufacturers try to reproduce the best piano tone possible, in many cases they "sample" (painstakingly take a recording of) a Steinway Grand Piano and try to duplicate that tone with their digital technology. In addition to that, the digital piano makers also try to duplicate the key touch of acoustic pianos.

I have been around digital pianos for years playing and teaching on them professionally and I can tell you that (in my opinion) no piano company has come close to actually reproducing the Steinway Grand piano tone except for one company, and that's Steinway:) Kurzweil however was the 1st one that used sampling technology to try to emulate the Steinway sound and they did a good job with what they had at the time many, many years ago. Since it's inception in the early 80's, Ray Kurzweil, the founder & creator of Kurzweil pianos, developed digital piano sampling technology that was years ahead of anyone else and to this day, Kurzweil still has some of the finest acoustic piano sounds in a digital piano although a few ohter digital piano companies have equaled, if not surpassed them in some ways now.

The Kurzweil CUP2 upright furniture style digital piano is Kurzweil's latest attempt at reproducing a satisfying piano sound and key action in a digital piano and I have written about this model in detail on my blog so I would encourage you to check it out when you have time at the following link: Kurzweil CUP2 detailed review
