Is it really that much better than the KDP110? Thinking my wife will kill me for this, I shouldnt provoke any further --- but its still at least 6 weeks until delivery, so now I am thinking... do I spend another 800 dollars on a CA79? The sound man at my local huge Victorian church felt that my ES 110 was incompatible with the church's ten year old PA system and he didn't like the 'unrealistic' piano sound much either, so I bought a Kawai ES 8 after doing a lot of research online. So I guess I did a lot of running around and reconsidering things only to end up back where I started. None of the professional reviews I found online were even remotely critical and I have now begun to seriously question the objectivity of online reviews. Recently, Kawai has announced two new models to replace them: the brand new CA49 & CA59. "Responsive Hammer Compact II Action". CA48 MIDI Manual.

I think you probably would prefer the CA49/59. The action seems to be the same as CA48 and 58. Well I sort of got more information — I went to the local place and tried out a few models. I know it won’t be just like an acoustic and I don’t really need it to be. It was enough better that I couldn't do the RH3. Both the Rolands had a ravishing sound and a nice action. In my eyes its worth the upgrade, why upgrade twice? And if I understood well, the CA49 will have a little screen, as the CN29 has. Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. Yamaha seems to have nice features, but I've never loved their piano sound, at least not at this level of device. Widely regarded as the ‘premier pianos of Japan’, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity. If the Grand Feel Compact feels markedly closer to the Grand Feel III than it does to the Responsive Hammer III, then I’ll stick with the CA49 pending order.

Two great digital pianos for 2020 from well-known brands. I'm now waiting for a technician to visit hopefully someday soon to replace the messed up keys. Really struggling with if I should buy KDP110 or give a couple hundreds more for the responsive hammer III...Did you find more information about this? The ES 110 is so much lighter than the ES 8 and therefore much more practical for gigging.

This app connects to the piano wirelessly via the Concert Artists’ integrated Bluetooth feature, providing an effortless way to change sounds, adjust settings, or enjoy the vast array of built-in music content from the comfort of an armchair. In another year maybe I would have bought that or even jumped up to the CA79, but I've got some other expensive purchases coming up in a couple months also, so I had to keep tighter on the budget. Solid-wood keys have a unique physical mass that travels and beds down in a way that pianists learn to expect as they develop their technique. The (supposed) “big selling point” of the CA49 is the improved feel of the action. Is the new CA49 the best value home digital piano currently on the market? I'm from the UK, but I played the piano for professional ballet dancers and students of ballet in more than one European country over a twenty year period. I went and tried a CN39 and a CA79 in person and also another model — I forget which — that had the RHII. I started wondering about the whole "Compact" action. ._3Im6OD67aKo33nql4FpSp_{border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetBorderColor);border-radius:5px 5px 4px 4px;overflow:visible;word-wrap:break-word;background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);padding:12px}.lnK0-OzG7nLFydTWuXGcY{font-size:10px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:12px;text-transform:uppercase;padding-bottom:4px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-navIcon)} Purchase standards of in-store digital piano customers. By all measures, this should be clearly better than the "Responsive Hammer Compact II". Are there sound engine differences between these two? J. I thought i would mention because you listed touch and feel as your highest priority. BUT, the better feel of the Grand Feed Compact -- I just couldn't get past it. According to informations given on the DP description, CA49 comes with the Harmonic Imaging XL, that could improve the sound compare to the CA48. CA17 MIDI Manual. AURES Owner's Manual. I personally really like the CA48 and can not recommend it enough for those who are looking for a digital piano around $2,000 price range. I would like the next buy to see me all the way through to grade 8. Then I learned about this KDP110.. triple sensor, SK-EX, 40W instead of the 14W of the ES110. The action on the keys is wonderful... when they work. It does look like a nicer piece of furniture, in my opinion. Featuring the brand new Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action, beautiful SK-EX and EX concert grand piano sounds, and modern Bluetooth® connectivity, the piano-focussed CA48 offers many of the strengths of the premium Concert Artist models within a more compact and affordable package. Here anyone who wants to have a side by side of the CA48 and 49 - this just came out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6QFCjFh36A. I see that some of you have bought the CN 29 which has RH III and the CA 49 with the Grand Feel Compact Action. I don’t remember if the expensive one was better. I went down almost the same exact path as you considering an ES110 and landing on waiting for a CA49 pre-order. Or just marketing hype? -Concert Magic: play any key and the program inside the piano will automatically play the correct note for you for the built-in song. I used them both for occasional gigs, the FP50 at prestigious London venues with amplification. CA48 CURRENT MODEL: CA49 DISCONTINUED.

I’m looking at these two. If your in the US and do want one and don't want to wait for your pre-order I just noticed Adorama has started listing them as In Stock and Ready to ship a few days ago (even the satin white one!). However, when I went to the other store, I was able to try the CN39, CA48, and the CA79 all side-by-side. because you have to press a black key or two as part of a chord), it will be much easier to press down than on the shorter RH3 keys.

For me it would have been worth it to wait and spend a little more on, as it was planned to be in a prominent place in our home. KAWAI CA49. In the end, I felt it split the difference quite well between the GF3 and the RH3. I saw several people in reviews using these as dedicated practice pianos because of that upgraded touch and feel. Bring your own quality headphones to test if you plan using them a lot. Its also not the smallest and lightest, but it would probably allow you to drop some of those auxiliary tools that you use. The RHIII in the CN39 felt enough better than the RHC2 that I would definitely not consider anything with the RHC2. I'm not interested in doing performances anywhere, I just want to have a good and enjoyable experience at home.

I should mention that I've got carpal tunnel syndrome and a bit of arthritis too from too much playing over many years, so I really do need and prefer a light piano action, hence my particular fondness for the ES 110. Thank you btw. And maybe it was. I'm just waiting for the ES 520 to arrive in the UK so that I can try one out. The ES 920 replaces the ES 8, but significantly, Kawai will continue to market the ES 110. Also you surely should check the sound in person. The CA79 wasn't really a contender for me due to the price (gotta draw the line SOMEWHERE, right??) The dimensions may also be larger but I'm not sure on that.
