I had a chance to try out the CA95 today at a Kawai dealer in Bangkok and all I can say is WOW! A very big WOW! The price, however, is way, way out of my range -- over US$ 6300 here in Thailand.

Have you tried other DPs beside CA95 for a comparision? This piano retails around $6000 in the US.

I don't believe it's quite that expensive in the US.

James, that's what one of the local dealers told me while he was looking at the price list. Another dealer told me it is around $5700. That's why you need to know how to bargain. Since business is going very slow this year of time, it's the best time to buy I think.

Tried some other DP's like the CN34 and CN24. These, however, are in another class compared to the CA95.

Funny, though, I like the sound of the CN24 better than that from the CN34. The CN24 has a consistent sound character across the range, like that of the CA95, while the CN34's bass goes muffled. Very strange.

Oh, I tried some other pianos in the showroom too, the K. Kawai grands. smile

Last time I looked, the Dealer in MSP was asking about $54-5500 for the CA95 and then add 7.125% Sales Tax. Plus $180 Delivery charges.

$6025 or so ...

Yep, that's close to what I was told by my local dealer 2 days ago. He showed me the price list of MSRP. But, then again, MSRP is always up on the roof top. Who's going to buy it at that price anyway?

No one would want to pay $6,025 (the MSRP) for the CA95, so you bring your best offer to the dealer first and see what they say.

I negotiated with my dealer and purchased the CA95 for $4,082. My final price may be somewhat lower than other deals being made since I had a Casio AP-620 and a Wurlitzer spinet acoustic piano as trade-ins.

The final price also included delivery as the piano is already assembled and they roll it right into your house. And, the other two pianos were taken out. The best price can be negotiated with the dealer.

And, I did all of this with just a few e-mails and phone calls, as I live a good distance from the store.
