I had The C3 Yahama Conservatory Collection Grand Piano for my 17th Birthday. Having Won National and International Piano Competitions It was an exciting and gripping experience for me to play my first notes on the Piano. It has a beautifull rich resounding soundboard. and it's smart and defined body makes it a great pleasure to look at. Placing the Piano in a spacy room would probably be a good idea seeing that it has good volume and it tends to have quite a heavy touch wich makes it considerably awkward to play virtuostically. This is in my oppinion though, you might find it differentely. Sound Production is very beautifull though. The Una Corda could be described as beeing a bit mild but with practise one will master it's touch. The C3 is consistant in nature though and it is very adequate for distinguished Pianists and demanding Music.
In my experience the Yamaha Conservatories are great fun to play - they also offer a fantastic range of dynamic effects whilst still maintaining clarity. High notes are crisp and sharp, and bass strings are powerful and can really offer a bit of 'beef' in you playing!
I agree with what you say about weight - some passages can be hard, but then louder chordal sections are much better with a bit of 'feedback' from the keys. I think all in all the Yamaha grands provide the perfect touch for me, and I love that gorgeous modern and clean sound. >>> JAXLE

Congratulations on the competitions. Don't think I'm quite up to the standard where I need a piano like this, lol. Corinne.
