Thanks for the information.

Sounds like specs in sound system of NV10. So, hopefully there is real improvement over 67/97!

2. Guess I'm part of the minority here, but, as a blind user/player, am disappointed that key switches are gone and a touch screen is in instead. This means that I won't be able to adjust its settings -- at least easily or quickly.
3. As someone who prefers the CFX sound of the Clavinova line, I hope Kawai have done a better job with their sound sampling techniques this time around. Of course, I realize that I'm entering the realm of personal opinions.

They don’t mention anything about sampling. The Google Translate text mentions “rendering” and I’m wondering if that’s also fully modeled sound as in Roland pianos.

The colour options seem to be limited compared to previous series.

No matt black option for either.
Also no white option for the CA98
And the white on the CA78 seems to be more of an off white instead of a brilliant white.
