I just called Alesis Tech Support about this questions.

They said that the problem was with using the QS8 on an "X" stand. This can cause a gentle bowing of the keyboard resulting in altered action in the middle of the keyboard.

That's apparently why they beefed up the construction a few months back. However, he still suggested using a full-support stand anyway, just to be sure.

: I recently did an internet search for info re the QS8, as I've decided to buy one. There was much discussion on a couple of the newsgroups re a bad "batch" of the keyboards, on which the piano sounds were adversely affected, particularly in the two octaves of Middle C.
