Pretty much what the title says - I figured that since I also plan to get a Genos, if I'm planning on getting something for more of a 'stage' presence (grand piano design) that also happens to double as a MIDI capable workstation (rhythms, arranger, etc) then getting a Clavinova would be sonically redundant for the most part.

What would you recommend? I'm thinking a Kawai CP-207 though Suzuki's DGP-4000TS looks good as well.

The Kawai CP1 is their latest model and has the Grand Feel action. Better choice if you can afford it.

Does it have all the rhythm control features and layering that the CP-207 does?

Yes.


Employed by Kawai Japan, however the opinions I express are my own.
Nord Electro 3 & occasional rare groove player.

Why not Yamaha? What is the problem with Yamaha? I believe that a good CVP series would be the best choice for your needs. Also, I believe Kawai CP1 would be good but I never tried it because it is available only in the United States.

Because I feel like I'd be getting a lot of the same sounds I'd get from a Genos
