good buy

27.02.2017
I am very pleased to have purchased this product and after trying it several days I think it is one of the best digital pianos that can be found at that price
I tried both yamaha, roland, but the piano sound that has kawai for me is the best

Also the mechanics is just like an acoustic piano,
Also the glossy black finish is spectacular

mounting found it easier and smoother,
for me is a highly recommended purchase for those who like me is willing to study piano and diciso and buy right away a product that lasts over time.

The hammer

Jürgen784, 19.07.2016
What should you write a lot.
Actually, I originally did not want to spend so much money. When the decision fell, a new electric piano needs to be, it should be originally a Yamaha CLP.

I wanted this time also what was neat and at the same time also optically attractive.
With Kawai CS-8 / CS-11 and CA-67 / CA-97 is supposedly everywhere the same keyboard mechanics and sound production.
The top models CS-11 / CA-97 only have the soundboard. This means that when playing with headphones there is no difference between the models, except for the optics.
It depends on what is important to you. Who on the outside not so much value can lay with the CA67 again 400 ¤ save. However, the high-gloss lacquer makes something already.
The feeling on the wooden keyboard is perfect - the sound is convincing - optics is very nice. Workmanship is good, only the pedalpanel is black matt foil - varnished, not high gloss, I do not quite understand.
The Oprik does not have a break.
And to the Kawai top devices, I could currently find nothing comparable in the market.
By the way:
The first DigitalPiano, which also smells like a wing, especially when you open the keyboard cover.
After I have the CS-8 now some time in use I would like to note a few trifles.

I bought the set with headphone and stool. The headphones I find for the price and quality class of the Kawai CS-8 definitely inappropriate. The sound quality of the listener would not be so bad, but since the shells are rigidly attached to the stirrup, it is almost impossible for me to put the headphones so that they are correctly attached to the ear.
With such an investment I would have expected that the headphone is quite adequate. The stool is a bit hard, but otherwise quite ok.
