Would it be fair to say that the KDP110 is the all-in-one home version of the ES110 stage piano?

Despite sharing the same number, the specifications of the two instruments are a little different:

Here's a side-by-side comparison:

I guess just as with KDP90/CN14 the new CN17 is also essentially just the same thing with a different name:

http://www.kawai-global.com/product/cn17/

Mildly confusing, but I'm not really complaining. It gets a little bit silly, when the same shop is selling both models. Would be fun to ask the staff what's the difference between them. smile

Yes, the KDP110 and CN17 share the same technical specifications, however the exterior finishes differ (KDP110 in Rosewood, CN17 in Satin Black or Satin White).

The sales channels and market areas also differ for the two models, however that's not really my area...

Kind regards,
James

Always enjoy listening to Rudy from Better Music play.

His videos are also informative.

Yes, he's a great presenter. However, it seems the sound in this video was captured in mono, unfortunately compressing the sound of the KDP110.
