Yes, the dealer is mistaken. The release is scheduled for 7/15/20!

And it’s not the ‘next generation’, but rather the continuation/expansion of the current NV lineup. As we all know, there is one missing ‘piece’ for the set to be complete. grin

Last year, they told me about CA99 before it was officially released, and I should still be able to find my reply here at that time.
Maybe they're mistake this year as your said. laugh

I think 7/15 release is probably a baby grand CA.
As for the new NV model I mentioned near the end of this year, whether it's called the NV20 or NV11, upgrades with grand or upright soundboard spks are all possible.

This is what I wrote before. It is without a doubt CA in grand cabinet or CN in PE.
Any of the NV series is out of question here.

There is a new DG series section on digital piano product comparison page. No actual products yet though.

Good hint! There is already a page for it:
https://www.kawai-global.com/product/c/digitalpianos/dg-series/

Looks like a (D)igital (G)rand...

The vpc section actually says "series" as well, that must be a clue! smirk

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think there have always been a "VPC Series" section...:(

Well, they took the posted link to the DG-Series and the section offline.

There is a new link, but without a picture anymore:

There was a photo confirming the grand shape. (On the page they took down)

So, now we've pretty much ruined the surprise. Except we don't know the exact model number and specifications, but probably the latter is pretty much high end CA model tech.

Speakers or soundboard? I guess speakers. I could be wrong. But maybe the soundboard is reserved for hybrids.

I guess soundboard+speakers, like as other CA9X models. But the horizontal layout of Grand CA will give better sound than normal upright.

Full transducer/soundboard model will belong to Grand Aures series I think.

The twitter post on page 1 http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/3000506/re-kawai-new-product-7-15.html#Post3000506 already shows at around 7s a curve which seems like the right side of a grand. Now with the kawai DG page which has been soon removed, there are no chance for a simple renewal of an existing Series.

It remains the question : will it be a CA derivative or a NV derivative... the CA grand derivative seems more probable, but it is not sure.

@MacMacMac : my piano is in the attic with the roof at the right side. (Right has two means : the opposite of left, and the opposite of wrong.... both meanings are adequate). It will be perfect !
