So, even if these high freq strings a free to vibrate, they are not stimulated enough by the soundboard, at least not as much as with a real hammer hit. That is only my point of view.
Being a physical weakness, I fear that more brightness in input won't change anything.
If I buy one, I will try what you propose, maybe in a few weeks.

I've heard several times over that the soundboard-amplified DPs do suffer from poor treble response, necessitating separate tweeters. This is something Kawai specifically sought to address with the new Aures line, iirc.

And just as an aside, when I auditioned the NV-10 before I bought it, I did bring in my laptop and headphones to try out CFX Full on it so I could compare the action directly with my MP11. Turns out I only used it for 5 minutes before swapping out to the built-in sound engine, since my curiosity was satisfied quite quickly. Not having any experience on the SK-EX Rendering Engine before, I was more interested in spending time on that, so I spent about two hours just playing the built-in sounds through the speakers. I think it's an interesting observation to suggest that the treble may be boosted because it's "tuned" for the CA-98 and its soundboard, since the default tone is indeed super bright coming out of the NV-10 speakers. Running CFX Full through the speakers does tone down the treble brightness tremendously (and its bass end is much less boomy than the built-in engine's, too).

I thought the CA97/98 and CS11 do have tweeters. I am pretty sure I had them in mine. Anyway, regarding the NV-10 being "bright", I do like Mellow 1 on the ballad mode.

You are right.
CA98
- soundboard with 2x transducer
- 4 x 8cm speaker
- 2 x 2cm dome tweeter

CA97/CS11
- soundboard with 1x transducer
- 4 x 7cm speaker
- 2 x 1.4cm dome tweeter

I suspect this is exactly what they are trying to address with the Aures.
