Do 19th Century Pianos Sound Good?

How do 19th century pianos stack up sound against modern pianos?

How do the older 19th century pianos compare in sound to our modern counterparts.

This provides more power and better tone quality of sound than the earlier pianos. See this sound comparison that illustrates the difference.
