I'm confused. If you offered him $1,500, and he said yes, you bought a piano.

Why are you still looking?

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

I haven't bought it yet. I offered him 1,500 before going to see it. But I've realize that there are a lot of bad review on it. I went to see it for myself I didn't like the way it sounded to much, but it was probably bc it wasn't tuned for a while. Would need at least two tuning for it be considered in tuned, in my opinion. Would it be too low if I offere him 1000 after looking at it? I don't want to feel like I'm low balling him, but I don't love it too much for a kawai. But it looked and feel very nice.

Well, it doesn't seem you are excited about the CX5H. For peace of mind, pass.

Not the best model from Kawai for sure, but then the deal certainly sounds good!

The sound and action on this piano can perform great. It's just not a rugged piano that should be moved around a lot - very lightly built. It was a price leader.
