Perfect for me

LeonardoDI, 09.02.2018
I was looking for a digital piano that was as similar as possible to an acoustic piano (compatibly with my budget) and after trying Yamaha and Kawai, I opted for this fantastic Kawai CS-8. It is perfect for my needs as I was looking for a piano that was also beautiful as furniture. The only drawback to note in the manufacturing is that, although the assembly has been carried out with the utmost care (the screw holes fit perfectly) there is no perfect alignment between the left side piece and the main piece (the keyboard). This is a detail and frankly I did not look at how the models I tested were mounted. From the mechanical point of view it's great and the same can be said for the sound, even if I use it mainly with headphones.

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.
