Only four reference: IMHO one of the best recordings of the real thing. Please listen to all the side tones and resonance :-):

I hope the CA100 will be around 120cm height.

It probably won't, but I think that would just look great.

One of the comments to the recent review from Bonners was from someone who weighted the mid C in their shop at 55 grams.

I was in the store when the chap brought his weight in. Interesting to see the difference between the Kawai and the Yamaha CLP685 which didn't move when he placed the weight on the keys.. Some people may prefer it in fairness but definitely has to be more labour intensive unless you're from an acoustic background and used to this action.

It has arrived and it’s stunning! (Might go into voluntary isolation now 😊)

Just trying to work out how to add pics on here from my iPhone 😊

i dont like the silver L shaped things on the cover, couldnt they use black ones instead? plus too many visible screws, is this deliberate design? Considering that the furniture its the same as upright models i couldnt say "its so its look like an acoustic"


My piano history in about 15 months: Artesia PA88w -> Yamaha P45 -> Kawai CN 24 -> Kawai CN 37 -> Kawai CA 78
Done with: Clair de Lune - Debussy, Waltz Op. 64 no. 2 - Chopin. Looking for a new piece, kind of learning The Mandalorian theme, and practicing with Etude Op.10 no.1 - Chopin.

To be fair i should of folded the lid/cover which would of hidden those 4 hinges you can see.

Those "things" are hinges. You only see them if you do not fold down that lid after opening the fallboard. So normally, they would be quite invisible, as you can see in the pictures here: https://www.kawai-global.com/product/ca99/

So they can be hidden, so its alright then. (should had looked more into it, plus use google translate when i forget certain words)

Stevie could you check the logo is not (slightly) slanted? There were earlier reports, and I recently bought a K300 on which the logo also seems a bit slanted (although not by as much as I have seen on some pictures posted here).
