    I have not played this series but have others and was pleased with performance and sound ( a lot depends on the installation process too for quality sound affect ). Go to their web site/ also youtube and listen to recordings of them and that will give you and idea of the sound. Another suggestion would be to see if there is an installation of the organ near you that you could visit to hear or talk with organist.

    I would rather recommend a Hauptwerk system. It can be fully customized and sounds far better than any digital organ.

    It's a computer program. The idea is that you can have sample sets from organs all around the world. You only need midi keyboards and a computer. And good loudspeakers, not such crappy ones that digital organs have. There are companies that can deliver the whole setup.

    Here is a good demo showing the sound quality:

    Basically : it is a software program.. you need a midi compatible keyboard(s) - organ console and a computer with excellent sound card and a speaker system. I use it with 2 keyboards and pedal board set-up.. jacked from computer into a amplifier unit then to speakers. there are a number of youtube posters who use this system. sounds great and you can pick from many organs and within a churches budget I would think... https://youtu.be/6ncVblmduSQ a GOod example here by Rob:

    Personally, I would rather (and did purchase) a digital instrument simply because it is more similar to a pipe organ in its control system. It has tablets to tilt to select stops, it does not use a fingerprint prone touch screen, and I don't have to program the silly thing. BTW I made my best earnings writing software.

    For the best possible sound quality, I'd opt for the Hauptwerk. Especially if the organ is going to be placed in a church.
