Kawai Ca48 Best Option? #2893507

Hello! I've been researching pianos for a bit, I'm deciding to wait until December to purchase a new digital so I can have more time to settle on an option.
My budget is probably around $2000-$2200, anything more would be a bit of a stretch, anything less would be great.
Currently I have settled on the Kawai CA48 as the piano I am planning to buy.
I am just wondering if for the $2000-$2200 range there is other pianos I should look into since I know Casio, Roland, and some other brands probably offer interesting pianos as well, or if the CA48 is the best choice.
I was able to try the Kawai CA48 in store and I really loved playing it, but for other brands I probably won't be able to try them.
Thanks!

I wouldn't buy an instrument that I was not able to try out. If you liked CA48, I think you should stick with it. There is no instrument in that price range that is clear winner over CA48.

If you won't be able to try other brands, then you should probably focus on getting a good price for the DP you could try, and like.

If you don't mind a slab, consider the Kawai ES8, which has a newer sounds engine than the CA-48 (and is cheaper), or the CA-58 if you can bargain it down to within your range.
