Has anyone actually bought a Kiyola yet? I'm looking for a digital piano and very taken with the sound of the Casio Grand Hybrid 400. But the looks of the Kiyola appeal to me.

How does it sound? Retailers here in Germany have been waiting and waiting and now say mid-July is a realistic delivery date.

How does the Kiyola compare sound/action to other Rolands?

How much of the price is for looks?

Very nice -- "mid-century modern" (= Swedish) styling.

But:

Tones:

. . . For performance: 6 Tones (Grand Piano: 3 Tones, Upright Piano: 1 Tones, E.Piano: 1 Tones)

. . . For data playback: 265 Tones (including 8 drum sets, 1 SFX set), Conforms to GM2

Some {unprintable} marketer(s) decided to include a GM2 sound generator, and not let the player use it "live". I can't believe that decision was driven by the engineering team. [Sorry, Jay -- that wasn't aimed at you.]

Has anyone here actually bought a Kf-10 Kiyola?

Can they please report their experiences?

A read a review on Thomann.de saying that the unit swayed from left-to-right. Any similar experiences?

This instrument is high on my list but I know of no one who owns one. Roland Germany cannot tell me when the one I ordered (in July) will arrive. They are only the manufacturer...

I don't own one but played one in Vienna. Although distracted by the N2 near it I was interested in the 'cabinet' design as part of its appeal is the simplicity. So I had a good look around. I don't recall it swaying or being wobbly at all, but didn't actually test for that. The assembly instructions suggest there is scope for user error. Just like IKEA!
