The CVP-809 has all the same features of the CVP-809GP. The only difference is in the design of the cabinet. The speakers are the same, but on the GP they are positioned differently and, being its cabinet bigger, it could sound different (not necessarily better). On the web the price of the 809 (not GP) is about $12,000. So, the CVP-809GP is priced $4000 more, just for a nicer cabinet? confused

$4000 represents the difference in furniture. For some people, furniture is key.

I'm sure there are people that would spend even more than $4000 just for a better looking cabinet for a DP. But for the average citizen that's a little over-the-top. We are already in the luxury market here...

Yep, once upon a time, the furniture in my entire apartment was worth less than half that $4K! grin

I don't understand... You think graded keyboards are "inconvenient" on the CLP series? Why?
They are piano-like but it’s not a real piano. Just look at the specifications - there are GHE, GHS, GH, GH3, GH3 NX, Grandtouch with or without counterweights and whatnot. There is also a digital piano which is said to have real hammers but it still feels like a poorly made imitation. ‘Imitation’ is the keyword when we talk about digital pianos. They are not good enough to replace the real ones. Yet.
