Kawai ES-8 out of tune?

So, my ES-8 has developed a buzz in the notes. I do not hear this through the headphones so I assume the problem is either the speakers or the speaker drivers. The problem is I cannot seem to find any certified Kawai repair people in Tucson, AZ. I also seem to be not wording my searches correctly since I can't seem to find the KawaiUSA site. Can anybody point me to the right place to start my inquiries? Thanks!

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.

I sometimes get a buzz that is actually something else nearby vibrating, usually on the music stand. If it's not too hard, try moving it, maybe to a different room, to make sure that the problem is in the piano, not something else.

Score sheets, maybe. Not joking - sometimes I have the same buzz and moving the sheet seems to solve it. Unfortunately, in my case I have a buzz on the right side speaker when I play low notes. I need to open it (again) to try solving this one.
