I decided on the NV-5 to replace my Casio GP-500, which was damaged by a water leak. It feels and sound beautiful. One thing I especially like is feeling the resonance while I play, which I'm told is due to a spruce sound board in the back. The shop has a Shigeru grand and the NV-5 was very close to playing it doing an A/B comparison. It was quite impressive.

Thanks, I'm still upset that my GP-500 was damaged and only being two-years old.

That takes some of the sting away for sure. How it works is if I waited to make the purchase then there would be a depreciation on giving the full amount on what I paid two-years ago for the Casio. I don't know the exact time frame, but it was incentive enough to make a decision. There are so many very positive reviews of this model and plus me liking it so much, so parabens to me.

It's isn't obvious by my forum name, but I'm Portuguese and from Macau. You would be the only person that would known what I said, lol. To my non-Portuguese forum friends, parabens is a congratulatory salutation much like Mozal tov. Growing up, Portuguese family friends would always say "Parabens" instead of happy birthday and we kids always shake our heads. Now that I"M the senior generation I like hearing it as much as I can.

Hello,

Well, well, well. Congratulations!

I hope you'll be utterly happy with it.

As for myself, I would be tickled pink with such a Kawai in my home. Something I currently can only dream of.

Cheers and Deeply Enjoy,

HZ

PS Is 'Mozal tov' an alternate spelling for the Hebrew 'Mazzeltof'?

Thanks so much!

Mazel-tov (Yiddish: מזל טוב, Yiddish: mazel tov; Russian title either «Мазлтов» or «Поздравляем», 1889), is a one-act Yiddish-language play by Sholem Aleichem.[1] The play focuses on the relationship between servants, the cook Beyle, and the upstairs rich, the Landlord. One memorable servant song from the 1889 play "Bitter is the food That gets burnt, Bitter is it to work Beyond your strength", was later recycled and included into the 1949 and 1969 Jewish Theatre, Warsaw production of The Gold Diggers.[2] The play was revived after the Revolution among the repertoire of the Moscow Yiddish Chamber Theater (GOSET) in the 1920s.[3] It was set as an opera Congratulations! (Russian: «Поздравляем!» , Op. 111) by Mieczysław Weinberg in 1975.

Congratulations.

I concur on the importance of body vibrations aka resonance. I have an arguably mid-range DP and all I get is the subtle vibrations from the bass notes that comes from the woofer, and only on a high volume. :-/

Being I almost went with a Casio gp310, if you don’t mind me asking, why not get the Casio gp500 again? I think the Kauai nv5 has an upright action, is that why? I didn’t have anywhere to play the Casio 310 so I didn’t order it, I was able to try yamahas 700 series locally only. Just curious,. Congrats on your purchase!

There are a few portuguese regulars in PW and quite a lot of brazillians. Be careful in using other colorful words that you remember from childhood 😊

Congratulations! When do you expect the NV5 to be delivered to your home? I expect mine this month, hopefully, fingers crossed smile Can't wait!

I believe I (also) mentioned the wonderful vibrations and resonance of the NV5 in your other thread, glad you feel the same way!

Vibration and resonance is one of the traits that’s making me worry I’ll regret a clp785 vs an nv5. I think I’d be happy otherwise, but when an instrument vibrates it’s really gets you!

I own a ca99 which also has the wooden soundboard and I'm not getting that vibration through the keys and cabinet that people rave about. There is a subtle vibration in the pedals but that's all I've noticed regardless of the setting I select.

I always thought “parabens” are what ladies don’t want to find in their shampoo 🙄

The piano will come after the water-leak damage is completed in the house. The water spoiled the Casio GP-500 that I've had for a couple of years. I expect it will take 1-2 months to complete the repairs.
