No problem, happy to help.

One advantage of using a single 3.5mm stereo mini jack (instead of two mono 6.25mm jacks) is that it helps to save a little space.

A potential disadvantage is that a splitter cable will be required in order to connect to certain equipment that utilises separate L/R jacks.

Kind regards,
James

Thanks for sharing the video Boboulus.

This video is from Kawai Japan's domestic NV5 product announcement, held in early August.

The product presentation is a shortened version of the English language product overview material prepared for dealers, which looks like this:

Thank you very much for the information James. So far my byer journey has boild down to this one so far. Ill just wait out NAMM and maybe Musicmesse before making the plunge.

Also, Digitalpiano has said they are working on a more extended review video but it till be in Danish. Pretty ok for me since im Swedish and can probably make out a few words. I'll post it here as soon as they post it oh thier YT-channel. smile

There is one video right now but nothing in-depth.

Thank you Boboulus. Yes, I have seen that "first preview" video before, and am looking forward to their more detailed overview.

Cheers,
James

Hello all,
I emailed Kawai re. Availability and pricing of NV5 in the US. I received a response the very next day but it wasn’t the best of news:



At the moment we have no information on availability or pricing in the US. I would suggest you check back in. about a month.

Regards,

Alan

Alan is a good guy. So I suppose he doesn’t know. Except “Check back in a month” may be a clue. 🙄

It's in stock in Sweden but not in any stores so that I can test it... very tempted even without testing. But it's a bit too much money to not have tested first. Also to be able to fit a piano into our house there needs to be changed in furniture and thats not done overnight. smile

Right now I'm just waiting for some more reviews and hands-on videos. smile

Does the NV5 have the same Onkyo Twin Drive soundboard as the CA 98 ?

Thanks for your help!

Hello lovelovemale, I already responded to this query in your CA98 thread, but just in case:

Yes, the CA98 and NV5 both use the same TwinDrive soundboard speaker. Indeed, the amplifier and speaker systems are the same for both models.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James

Can I ask whether the NV5 will come to Australia soon. Because I was looking for it and no official Kawai retail store have it, also Kawai Australia official website only shows NV10

Hello Masticccc, welcome to the forum.

I believe this topic is still under consideration within Kawai Australia.
My recommendation would be to contact the subsidiary directly to check the situation and register your interest.

Kind regards,
James

Does the novus nv5 have a light and repetitive action? Like is it good for fast legato pieces?
