On this topic I'll try to send a few photos of the new KAWAI CN43, starting with the package!
It's heavy indeed (74Kg) and quite big in size!

good match with the rest of the room. Good choice. And you don't need no dinner table anymore.

The piano mounting has to be done by 2 persons! It's quite difficult task for 1 person!

By the way that's a nice looking box.

The suspense is QUITE bearable. I'll bet his piano looks EXACTLY like the picture on the Kawai web site. Wow!

Yes Guys! It's white! And it fits perfectly in my room! ;-)
I was going to buy CN33 (in White), even though I wanted the features of CN43!
I was so lucky to delay my order, because I was pleased to hear later the announcing of CN34!

No it doesn't , somehow DP's always look quite different in a real room than on the fabricated pictures on the brands website. Usually better and in context. J

Finally, the piano ready for play!
At the beginning I was a bit anxious about the piano...
Now I'm relaxed! I really love it...Maybe a bit exaggeration, but I liked it
in every aspect: keyboard feel, sound, the speakers ok! Even
the bass has quite satisfying feeling in sound!
The keys are all ok..flawless!

Nice ! You know I almost bought a white CN34 too, but they we're not available yet at he time, so I pulled the trigger on the es7. Quite similar in features, but the white looks very nice and non- intrusive in most rooms ! Congrats , hope you like it.

I have some questions.

Is this unit made in China or Japan?

Are the keys heavy to play?
Can you play fast passages on the keys easily?

Can you comment on the feel of the action, especially compared to other digital or acoustic pianos if you have any such experience?

Thank you for your lovely pictures. I also prefer white color.

That's a beautiful piano! Just one suggestion... Consider painting your wall a darker color.

Agreed. The piano doesn't stand out very well on a white wall :P

The package says "made in indonesia"!

Are the keys heavy to play?

At first I felt them heavy, but now after practicing I think they feel quite nice in touch, playing and overall action!
I also like the sound of the speakers when playing on it!
I really enjoy it without the use of headphones!

Can you play fast passages on the keys easily?

I can't tell, since I'm still practicing!

Can you comment on the feel of the action, especially compared to other digital or acoustic pianos if you have any such experience?

I can't compare to other pianos, since I don't have much experience! Compared to Yamaha white model, I think is much better, because I tried it! That's of course my opinion! ;-)
