I've emailed one of my colleagues in the Distribution department, so should be able to confirm the dimensions for you tomorrow.

How the heck those 2 men lift that 80kg piano like that, 40kg each side? Like It was nothing, gives me some hope I could get a ca99 in my house, thought I would need 2 men each side!

Superpowers. 🦸‍♂️

It's extraordinary what skilled movers can do, whether they're moving furniture or pianos. The same goes for carpet layers.

Tell me about it, the Ca78 i got i think it was between 89-95kg since it included the bench. I could barely get it out of the car with my brother, i had to open it up and move just the upper part through a tight U shapped ladder to my room on the second floor, it was a pain.

Long ago my Kawai was lifted by two young guys. The piano weighed 560 pounds.
I would never dare try. But some do and can.

Well like I said in one of my other posts.... I actually carried down my CA 98 with just one other person down 2 floors....
IT WAS DAMN heavy and really hard to grab. The stairs were going down in a circle as well... this Kawais are heavy indeed :P

Can anyone share their experience with playing the CA79? I'm in the US and none of the dealers near me have it yet.

Just noted that the Kawai US site has replaced "Coming Soon" with a description for both CA99 and CA79. The MSRP have also been posted.

Thanks for the heads up. I was hoping the MSRP would be closer to $4k ...

I expect CA79 to be a few hundred above 4k when it actually becomes available to order online.

Yeah, on my country its usually way more expensive, the retail price for a CA78 was $4160, i got it with an "offer" for $3330. With the price the dolar is going now they are selling the CN37 for that pricce ($3330), wich is wow. Plus they have only so much stock, they got the CN29/39 but i dont see them around anymore, they are still selling the left overs of the last gen. They have no idea when the CA79 is releasing, plus they dont bring the CA58 nor the CA98.
