Finally made my mind up and today pulled the trigger on this little gem: Kawai MP11 SE

Now there's a delivery time of 4 - 8 days. I'm so happy for this. wink

Agree. Actually, I believe I got hold of one of very few in all of Sweden. Got it through my contact at Steinway Piano Gallery Stockholm. Ever greatful for that!

Congrats, but what are your plans for speakers? Hook it up to the CS11 sound system?

Good question! That's next on the menue. I've been recommended JBL 305 P MkII + LSR 310 S monitors. CS11 is in another part of our house so that's not possible.

I wish to demo this along side the VPC1... But I can't -- have to wait till at least October!!! Meanwhile, the KRK Rokit 5 G4 would be good, if you are looking at small monitors. The piano sound goes down quite low on there, so much so that in my room, I don't need a subwoofer. Hope this helps!

Very much. I do love the deep bass tones of the MP11SE, but would still skip a sub iff possible. Thought you need 10" to manage that though?

If you have PA or home stereo speakers lying around, try them first before you spend money. Many forum members love their nearfield monitors but I tried 3 different pairs of higher-end active monitors that I have in my home studio and was not happy with any of them. They are perfect for mixing in the studio but sounded sterile to me when hooked up to my MP11se. All I'm saying is you've picked a great piano, now don't be afraid to experiment with speakers and placements. Don't be surprised is you find yourself wanting/needing 4, 6 or even 8 speakers smile

There should be a market for an MP11SE with built-in speakers, right? Does this exist already in Kawai's portfolio?

Not yet. I actually wish Kawai would partner with a speaker manufacturer and make an attachment on the MP12 version that would allow easy add-on monitors at adjustable height. But maybe I'm in the minority here on this idea.


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.

Congrats on the purchase, there is one in stock near me. I'm tempted, but can't try it due to lockdown.

I'd try nicer looking speakers, e.g. audioengine. And maybe try sitting a nicer looking music rest like this on top. And build a nice stand like the es8 had.

Should Kawai release a new model with GFIII, or is there not much difference?
