What is the difference between the Kawai CA58 and CA59?
There is about £400 difference in price I believe.

CA59 has built-in Bluetooth Audio as well as Bluetooth Midi (CA58 only has Bluetooth Midi), CA59 also has the Kawai SK-5 sample in addition to the EX and SK-EX on the CA58, and the speaker system on the CA59 is Onkyo (although the 4-speaker system on the CA58 is quite beefy already).

Otherwise, practically the same cabinet (there might be some very small differences) and the same Grand Feel Compact action. The controls on the left side haven't changed AFAIK (they might have improved the display, I'm not too keen on the LCD of the CA58, but it's not a deal breaker).

I may have overlooked a few things so maybe double check with KawaiJames, he's the expert !

Chris' summary is correct.

For a side-by-side comparison of these two models, please use the "Product Comparison" feature of the Kawai Global website:
