What are the thoughts on this please? Tried the cn37 & 48 but believe the 58 would be best (price depending). Wonder how yamaha compare on features?..

As far as I understand, many see the CLP-645 as the best buy in the current Clavinova series. So it is definitely a solid contender. Featurewise it has Bluetooth and built in rhythms, which is not standard in this class.

For Kawai, I would also consider the CA67 if it is still available to you. It is discontinued now but better than the CA58 in every aspect except Bluetooth.

The CA67 has only two speakers in comparison with the CA58, how much of a difference would that make? I found the Kawai's with the two smaller speakers on top had more treble and brightness.

Goldman, I think the confusion stems from when you wrote

You probably meant "has only two speakers more", but it definitely sounded like "has only two speakers".
