Hello, I'm interested in purchasing my first digital piano after having the luxury of 6 lovely acoustics at work (in a school). With a young family I just don't have the biggest budget but I'm curious to know how the Cs4 compares to the Cs7 which is £1000 more!

I played both the week before last and did think there was a better sound and playing action from the cs7 but I'm interested to know of an experienced pianist would agree - I can play very little so maybe the price tag biased my view. One thing I did like about the more expensive cs7 piano was the slightly bigger size - it just felt more comfortable to play at. All this said, £1000 more almost takes it out of my league. It is just weather an argument with the misses and £1500 lone is worth the difference in play and sound!


Help appreciated.

Chris

I'll get my CS7 delivered tomorrow.....didn't have the chance to compare it with the CS4 in the store, because it wasn't on the floor. I did test the CS7 and CA65 and 95 and found it much more convincing and natural. Probably the different body and material play a big role in sound projection and overtones.
The CS7 has the top notch action that kawai offers on the market today: the Grand Feel Action, which is superb. I know it'll be 1000 more, but if you pay it in monthly installments, like I do, it'll be probably 10 pounds more then the CS4......
CS7 rocks!

Suppose it depends over how long you choose to pay - I'd go for the cs7 but I expect £1000 over 2 years is more like £50 including the additional interest! Are you in the uk?

At today's exchange rate The CS4 would be $1920, while the CS7 would be $3200. At least at the prices the original poster quoted of 1500 and 2500 British Pounds respectively.

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.
