Beautiful, affordable, feature rich instrument
Eskael 26.03.2021
As a beginner with just 5 months of experience, I'm afraid that my review won't bring much to your lives, but I'm blown away with this instrument.
It has a beautiful, highly customizable sampled sound with a well developed, easy to use PianoRemote app. Action is lighter than Roland's PHA-50 and far more responsive - Roland FP-90x felt heavy and sluggish in comparison. It feels like there is not that much depth after you press-down a key and the keys bounce a lot upon release, both of which I found distracting at first, but quickly got used to it. There are visible jumps in height between certain white keys, but again that's just minor nit-picking.
Build quality is great, and I don't get how people can have problems with fingerprints - I don't have that issue at all. I don't travel with it, but I appreciate the instrument's weight, as it doesn't feel like it will break the furniture while playing it.
For the first time in my life, I'm actually in love... and it even says 'Goodbye' to me, when I have to go away for a bit.


Great portable piano
Mikejla 04.02.2021
I am really happy to be an owner of Kawai ES920. For me it is a great portable piano. I travel a lot and now at least I can take my piano wherever I go. What I like about ES920? After one month of using I still admire the sound, the keyboard work and the pedal. These features are very close to the real piano (when you push the pedal you can even hear the sound, which produce the freed strings :)). The piano is also very light so I can take it by my own, I don't need to ask anybody for help (I like it very much). I like also how it looks like. The blue lights which are on the top are subtle and they don't disturb during playing.
Till now I've just found only one thing I don't like - when you touch the body of ES920 your fingerprints stay on it and they are very visible. But this disadvantage doesn't have much influence on my very good opinion about this piano.


Beautiful piano sound, so-so speakers, okay features
Edael 05.02.2021
The main piano sound is really beautiful: sweet, rich, natural and resonant. Lots of options (basic setting + virtual technician) to tweak it to your taste. Not many other sounds (don't expect trumpets, guitars, weird stuff etc, it's basically just keyboard instruments and strings), but generally of good quality. Rythms and automatic accompaniments, though not so many, are a fun feature that a lot of digital pianos don't have.
The onboard speakers are powerful but on the bassy side and lack some clarity for my taste, so I had to increase the brightness and cut the bass to get where I like it more. Fortunately, you can save all your settings and tweaking in a registration bank and recall them with the switch of a button. Also, the action is a bit hard especially in the lower half and the keys are a bit noisy.

Super Heim-Digitalpiano
Ryan Hard 21.04.2021
Ein richtig gutes Heim-Digitalpiano!

Die Klaviersound sind top, wobei v.a. der EX Sound sehr schön und klar klingt. Der meistgelobte Shigeru Kawai SK Grand Sound ist natürlich für ruhige Klänge perfekt, für die schnelleren Songs wechsele ich lieber auf den Kawai EX Sound. Erinnert mich etwas an den klaren Yamaha Sound. Ich hatte mich aufgrund des SK Grand Sounds für das Kawai entschieden. Dass hier noch bessere bzw. für andere Zwecke konzipierte Pianosounds mitkommen, noch besser!

Die anderen Klänge sind auch in Ordnung, nur nutze ich sie maximal als Abwechslung. Für richtige Synth-Sounds würde man aus meiner Sicht eher ein Stage/Master-Keyboard mit DSP-Plugins in der Workstation nutzen. Natürlich würde dafür auch das ES-920 B als Controller funktionieren.

Was am Sound nur 80 % optimal ist, sind die Lautsprecher. Da diese im Gegensatz zu Studiomonitoren oder Kopfhörer nicht direkt auf den Hörer ausgerichtet sind, klingt der Sound oft ein bischen dumpf. Das kriegt man vermutlich jedoch auch nicht viel besser hin. Prinzipiell sind sie jedoch schon OK, jedoch nicht absolute Spitzenklasse. Man muss sich etwas dran gewöhnen.
Womit ich es kompensiere: Man kann am Piano mit Hilfe eines manuellen Equalizers die Höhen etwas verstärken, was ich gerne nutze um den leicht dumpfen Klang auszugleichen.

Das Kawai Pedal ist super, rutscht kaum und ist stabil und quietscht nicht, wie andere Pedale.

Die Verarbeitung ist OK. Um Gewicht zu sparen wurde viel Plastik eingesetzt. Für mich war es jedoch ein Kaufkriterium pro ES-920, da ich das Piano alleine tragen möchte.

Die Tastatur ist aus meiner Sicht auch top, auch wenn die zurückschwingenden Kawai Tasten manchmal bemängelt werden. Dies ist jedoch für mich kein Problem!

Danke an Thomann für den absolut super Service! Ich hatte per Telefon und E-Mail Kontakt und dieser war jedesmal tadellos und absolut Lösungsorientiert!

Ich bin rundum zufrieden. Gerne wieder!
