QuasiUnaFantasia Grotrian-Steinweg is (as far as I know) bettered by no other brand.
Yes, I played several of them at dealers and three of the favorite (affordable) pianos I tried (and I tried hundreds, lol) were a Grotrian-Steinweg 120 from the golden 1920s and two Grotrian-Steinwegs 112 from the 60s/70s. I liked only one specific Bechstein 12N (112 cm, 1970s) and an August Förster 120 (1930s) better. But these piano were all much more expensive. At least 50 % more, some of them more than double the price.
Grotrian-Steinwegs have the reputation to be very sturdy and durable instruments. My favorite brands (for upright pianos) so far were Grotrian-Steinweg, Bechstein, August Förster, Pfeiffer and Ibach. My impression was always that these german pianos allow a more nuanced, colorfol and dynamic playing and tone, especially in the pianissimo, compared to their Japanese counterparts.
Edit: This one looks most similar to the one being sold (it has just an other wood/veneer):
I am really looking forward to try it.
