That does help and I understand that you looked in the service manual so I tend to trust what you say. Curiously, I had emailed Kawai and got a reply back today that said:

"The ES110 speakers are inside the cabinet facing upward on the left and right sides of the cabinet."

Do the what appears to be open slots on the right & left open into the speaker area?

It's not a big deal I've pretty much decided on the Kawai over the other choices. And I've yet to see a complaint about the speakers/sound on the Kawai. I was just hoping it had upwards facing speakers like the Yamaha/Casio and I wasn't finding that information online.

Kawai ES110 actually DOES fit into the Casio Privia Gig Bag (around $60 USD):

Waiting for your review tnsettlemo and your thoughts compared to Casio PX160 or 560 action.

Hello again,
It's been a while since the last post.
I managed to visit the demo store once again today and played for about an hour or less. I think the action overall is good and pretty fast. Waiting for my ES100 to go so I can handle to put the extra money for the ES110.

Just saw your post/request. I am only practicing sight reading so far on this piano and it is certainly nice. I haven't really memorized any pieces to play with any technique whatsoever so it would be kind of hard for me to compare the action with anything else. My favorite action was on my Yamaha P255. I do think the sound on the Casio was as good as that of the Kawai with the small non-powerful speakers each board came with, so for the money, the Casio PX160 is good.

The ES110 cannot save MIDI files at all. It doesn't have USB storage support.

Nigel, as JoeT notes, the ES110 does not feature a USB to Device port, meaning there is no way to save data directly from the instrument.

However, it may theoretically be possible to 'play' the recorded song into a sequencer running on an iPad via Bluetooth MIDI, and then save this resulting file.

By the way, may I ask why you decided to part with your ES7?

Kind regards,
James

Yes 2 words 'My back'

Went on a gig with it but it was a 2 man operation even with this bag

Keyboard bag with wheels

It was a 2 man operation. I was not unhappy with the ES7 just too heavy. I did try the es100 but decided on the bigger one. Now I need a piano I can take gigging since I now play for 2 bands and I need one that can be carried by one person.

I am looking at the roland fp30 and Yamaha P115 aswell.

I assume the sequencer is just an internal midi recorder its a shame you cant get the data. I suppose you can always use a midi recorder by bluetooth connection.

musicman100: Before you buy, check out the Casio Privia range if you can. The weight of all of them is in the 25-26 lb range and the quality for the cost is high.

Hello Nigel,

Thank you for your reply, and for explaining your requirements.

Yes, the ES110 is a good fit for something seeking a portable board with a good quality sound and realistic piano action. The FP30 is a close competitor also.

I recommend play-testing both boards to get a true feel for their sounds, keyboard actions, and features.

Kind regards,
James

Hi everybody,
awesome posts, I can't believe I read every single one and had a look at all videos you shared. A few weeks ago I paid 10% upfront to reserve an ES110, but reading this forum made me change my mind so badly. In a way I feel pretty sad, I thought I could start playing right away, but it looks like I better save for a CN37 or even an ES8 if I decide to stay portable.

I have no piano at the moment so I was desperate to get one. I'll go to the store on the 1st next month, to test a few options and also to see if they offer a good payment option for a higher model, and if they will honor the money I paid to reserve the ES110 or I'll lose that... stupid move...

I'll surely post what I'm able to learn by trying all Kawais. I played for over 20 years, I can appreciate a good action, so yeah, the ES110 is probably not for me...

Thanks.

I wouldn't rule-out the ES110 just yet. While it's action isn't quite up to the level of our flagship Grand Feel II wooden-key action, it's still plays very nicely, and is arguably more realistic than most other plastic actions available in this price range.

Kind regards,
James

hi I am looking at the es110. Has anyone connected the Bluetooth to android. If so what apps did you use?

The kawai ticks nearly all my boxes but i just need to know if i record a song I can get it off the keyboard. I suppose i could do a midi dump thought the midi connectors but still seems no strange not to have usb on.

thanks

Also has anyone experience of gigging with it? in a band or as a duo?

Also I like having registration for live playing but why oh why does it not save transpose!!! If I am playing live I have to try and figure what combination of keys to press!! If not stored at least have a dedicated button!! Is that something that can be added in an update? thats very crucial for me!!

I am looking at the kawai, p115 and the fp30 and all have some drawbacks !! I do like the kawai.

Bluetooth MIDI support on Android is dependent on your device and OS. May I ask if you can provide this information, please? There are a few MIDI apps on the Play Store, however these may not necessarily support Bluetooth. Certainly, compared to iOS, the number of MIDI/music apps available is relatively small.

As you note, the Transpose setting is not stored to Registration memory. This is a standard specification among Kawai DPs, and I believe most - if not all - DP/stage piano manufacturers. These memories are typically used to quickly change sound configurations mid-song, whereby storing the transpose setting would not be desirable.

Kind regards,
James

Only Android 6.0 and later supports MIDI, but it's still optional (device manufacturer decides if they want MIDI support). There is no MIDI support at all in previous versions of Android, They even removed the MIDI parts of the Java class library from the Android SDK, hindering the development of musical applications.

So there you are. Unless you buy an Android-powered digital piano, you are not going to get far with Android currently. Maybe that changes in five years, who knows.

Love my new KawaiES 110 BUT every key has a slight vibration when released to its original position.. is that a result of the new RHC action?.I'm ok with the clicking ( heard about that before )As a beginner I can't determine if vibration affects "feel"?
Thanks Mr AJ
