Nothing to base this on but opinion, but I think the the Stage 3 is coming this year. Maybe not until the summer but I can't see Nord not implementing some of the nice updates in the Electro 5 and Piano 3 onto their 'flagship' board for much longer. I expect the Stage 3 will, of course, have the nicer display and related features. I expect the weighted 88 key version to have the triple sensor key action. I did get a chance to play the Piano 3 and it plays much better. I think the Stage 3 SW73 will have physical drawbars as they did with the Electro 5 SW73. I don't know if they will expand the Piano memory much, if at all, 1GB is not bad and it's what's in the new Piano 3. However, i do think the sample memory will be increased, hopefully also to 1GB. I expect at least one other 'surprise' in the Stage 3, maybe some add ons to the synth section and better external miid controls as well, but i am less confident in those things happening. We'll see.
