I didn't say that about the M, since I'm not even sure if it's L or M (but I'm leaning towards L, and you even said it looks like one)..
either way, I didn't really mean it's a bad one.. but it's not my type of touch.. I didn't like the way the keys felt (not quite deep enough) nor the sound that much.. I just expected a bit more, although I was still very glad to have played on it

"that sort of speech?" o_O
I wasn't trying to sound rude, but it's just not my kind of piano.. am I not entitled to my own opinion?
I simply said I didn't think it was that great.. as in, I expected more. I'm not trying to insult the model nor the brand (after all, the "nicest" I've played on is a Steinway.. although I don't remember which because it's been quite a while since I last played on it), and I'm sorry if I came off as doing so.. :/ and perhaps it's just this very piano, several factors taken into consideration, that made me unsatisfied (like the floor, maintenance, etc).
Anyway, I went piano shopping Monday, and met this guy that worked at the store who was friends with Franz Mohr (Horowitz's tuner I believe), and I think he met Horowitz as well (he's aquainted with his piano though, which has supposedly come to the store several times). I'm going to an after Christmas sale next week, where there will be 800 + pianos, so I hope I'll find one suitable for me!
