Great keyboard with very nice touch!!!
zoleeon, 28.05.2018
After a few other keyboards, finally I stopped on this one, It has nice acoustic and electric pianos, good speakers, and kind of portable, but the main thing for me is the touch of the keybed, After the VPC-1, that I still use it for practice, the touch of the ES8 is a bit lighter but with nice playing feeling. It is quite easy to access different setups in the menu, I mainly use it with othes VST's.

A great buy.
22.04.2016
The pros:
Looks great, feels great, sounds great. The new Shigeru Kawai pianos sound amazing. The response and touch are the one of the best, if not the best, in its price range. It has a wide range of features, if you're willing to put in the time and effort to learn how to use them.

The cons:
The action isn't perfect, but very respectable for a DP and better than some acoustic pianos. A limited amount of instruments, as expected of a DP. Can be remedied via patching.

Overall:
I'm very happy with the buy. It's a good piano.
