Great sound and Great Touch!!!
Rado223 14.06.2020
I am using this piano for a practicing and in my home studio as a main source of piano sound and midi controller.
In my opinion, it has the best hammer action You can get on a market these days. I work as a professional pianist and keyboard player over 15 years and tried many top end stage pianos from Nord, Yamaha and Roland, So far this is the closest touch to real piano I ever played.

Sounds of pianos are beautifull, warm, just the noise of pedals by factory settings is too loud, but no big deal, you can change it in settings and save the preset. And same with the metronome, by factory settings is crazy loud.

The built quality is great, there are no cheap plastics, but solid metal and wood. The bad thing is that make this piano togather with a hammer action very heavy, I cant cary the piano on a gig just by myself, You need an another person to help you.

Handling is not a strongest point of this piano, but still ok, for expample if you want to play audio file from your USB stick, You may think You put USB Stick inside and press the button USB and find your file, but not,You have to press Record and do some steps to load the song, I had to google it to find out, it isnt intuitive.

Summary it is a great good looking Stage piano, and if you have somebody to help you to carry it, or You use keyboard mainly in studio or home as myself, it is a great choice!!!

Exceeds all expectations
MaxDannek 05.06.2019
excellent instrument with a great variety in settings including brilliant and sharp to mellower/ lounge-ier piano sounds even though the namesake Shigeru setting is actually really all I need. I may imagine this but it sounds very kawai-esque, which was quite the transition from having played on yamaha stage pianos. It took some getting used to but I mean - that's to be expected when getting a new instrument I think.
It comes with the usual other instrument settings, the strings are "okay" (to be fair, i have yet to find one setting that could do a string section any justice so I might be biased here, it's still one of the better ones but yeah, that is literally the only part I'd not expect too much of) but every (other) setting is tastefully made and usable. There are even some fun ones that can be layered or used with a split keyboard which is great for layering tracks. I personally mainly use the piano sounds but I can imagine someone enjoying the other ones as well.

The keyboard plays naturally and the combination of different sounds and the option to change the responsiveness of the keys allows to completely transform the playing experience.

Downsides:
Pressing the sustain-pedal creates a shattering sound that is virtually only audible using headphones but still irritating. I haven't found a way yet to turn it off. At 34kg it is quite heavy and cases take some time to manufacture.
The multitude of ways to tweak the different settings is at first quite overwhelming but the price point should have indicated already that this instrument would be overkill for a beginner anyway.

Just love it and I play it all night long.
cablesaurus 26.03.2023
I've had this for a few years now and I continue to love the sampes, the tuch and the experience when playing.

I play classical music on it exclusively and there are a lot of "tunable' features in this keyboard for me that I love.

I think the touch is better than many acoustical uprights (and a few grands) and it's easy to forget it's digital. It's not perfect, but it's also not corrupting my technique so when I do play an acoustical pianos, I feel in control still.

It's very heavy. Portability heavy is relative. Get a really good stand.
Build is superb. I've not had any issues (yet) with action of UI functionality.

I really, really wish the knobs on the console were rotary encoders and NOT potentiometers - or that somehow it was possible to rotate them through and past 360 degrees... You can set the pots in one menu with terrific accuracy, but move to another menu and then pots are all rotated in the wrong positions. This was not a deal breaker for me (and it should not be for you), but it is annoying to have a problem like this, both at this price point, and with all the amazing design and engineering Kawai put into making everything else outstanding.
