Yesterday ,I also bought same one in Turkey.(maybe after your good pictures).Kawai CN 34 in rosewood color.Today they carried & montajed it.Also these one made in Indonesia.After a little study with my new DP,I can say .a quantum leap after my yamaha dgx & yamaha piaggereo V60.Nothing seems wrong.Sounds good (tried only grand concert & mellow grand).Keys neither light nor heavy, near to acustic piano at my the piano course .Only drawback a little hard to reach usb and earphone jacks.They are at the beneath of keyboard but better than behind ones.
Now working on to find a good piano sound % reverb combination.

Very nice. "Like" smile

The lighting beneath the unit is a nice, if impractical, touch.

I used to pull the key cover forward slightly to hide the panel to help with the illusion (self-delusion!).

May I ask why would you be interested in a white piano? Is it a European thing? I always preferred the look of the polished ebony piano.

John Lennon had a famous white piano. I think Lady Gaga played it too. My question is why a black piano costs more and a rosewood or mahogany piano.

I always felt that the polished black ebony piano looks best. I know if I am buying a console type piano the only acceptable choice is the polished ebony (and maybe with dark red accents if available). All the other colors don't look as good and therefore costs less.

Evidently some people here like the other colors.

It's the finish type, not the finish color that usually matters most. Glossy black is a different material, harder to manufacture and harder to safely package and ship than matte finishes.

In the acoustic piano world, wood finishes tend to cost the most. As for black finishes, it is highly unpredictable. For example, in a brand like Steinway, gloss costs more than satin, but for another brand like Knabe, satin costs more. For some, it is the same. One maker we work with, Grotrian, has 3 black finishes at 3 price levels. On a mid-sized grand piano, the difference can be more than $10k. On the same sized Knabe, the price difference might be $400. Have fun trying to explain that to a family of blinking customers.

ChrisAlex, if I may, I would like to offer you advice on recording for external playback songs that you play on your new CN34. I've owned the CN34 for about a year now, and since this model is new for you, you might not yet know the "tricks" to maximize its performance.

After you record a song from the CN34 in WAV form on a USB memory stick, it will play fine over your CN34, but the volume will be too low on your computer, which you would use to burn the song on to a CD. That's a problem caused by the hardware limitations of the CN34. But I know of one neat way to get around that, and perhaps others in this forum may know another method for increasing volume without throwing your song out of EQ balance. Here is my method...

After putting the recorded song on the USB memory stick into my computer, I load it into a software program called Audacity. I'm not aware of whether or not you know what Audacity is, but if you don't, you can download it for free from the internet. After you weed out all of the attached commercials, it's really a very good program for your purposes.

When you open your song in Audacity, on the left side of the screen you will see a slider with - and + indicated. Simply move the slider up until the volume is pleasing to you (for me it is around 17 or so). If you decide to keep the song, I would first recommend making a wav file by selecting File and then export, and putting it into a wav folder that you've created for your songs. I would then suggest making an mp3 file and putting that into an mp3 folder. (The reason for the mp3 version is so that you can email your song.)

Recorded in this manner, the tone quality of the CN34 is surprisingly good in its default setting, and you certainly can modify the sound to your liking.

If you already know all this, then I apologize for taking up your time, but I thought I might mention it so that you can get maximum enjoyment from your new CN34.

ADWyatt, there is also the 'Audio Recorder Gain' setting, explained on page 75 of the owner's manual.

Chris,
What a great picture of your night practice set-up!!I really like the light you put under your piano. May I ask what type of fixture you used? Is it rope LEDs?
