I agree also with NL and LK. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...Our resident economists willagree with me (I hope)- that's why we have the subjective theory of value...
I agree with all your comments, I can also see how my post may have been disrespectful. However, I was just joking around. I like you guys and the chats we have on this board. Afterall, this is supposed to be the place where a guy can take solace in a purchase of $700 sunglasses. NL, I didn't know about the lifetime warranty. Is there any chance of getting them replaced?

 And while I can't judge the quality of Gucci sunglasses, I have doubts about quality of a knock-off from street vendors.  
It's not the quality of the street vendors that's in question. It's the quality of the authentic Gucci glasses. Anyone who has owned a pair can be sure to tell you how poor the quality can be. It's about the same as let's say... a street vendor's version.

Both Bechstein and Bosendorfer are around the same price range per length/model, from $25,000 to around $80,000.  However, in Bechstein, custom work (such as weight of keys, thicker bass, etc.) may cost more.  For Bosendorfer, extra keys on top of the 88 keys can be added, and it will cost a little more.  9-foot concert models will also cost more.  These piano makers are actually quite honest about their prices for the quality of work they do.

Dear Naturlaut If you haven't already, you ought to read The Piano Shop on the Left Bank: Discovering a Forgotten Passion in a Paris Atelier by Thaddeus Carhart. It is available in both hardcover and paperback. Whilst the book deals with many themes, the underlying idea is the art of savoring a really fine piano. A wonderful read.

Thanks for the recommendation.
