Hi everybody,
It has been three years since I joined this forum looking for advice in order to buy a DP; in the end, thanks to your suggestions, we bought an used Kawai CA93 in very good conditions and, so far, we are fully satisfied of our choice. Anyway, I recently noticed an offer about a Kawai CA67 for sale, in very good conditions as well: so, since the CA67 should be about two generations more recent than our CA93 and since we rarely play the piano without earphones, so we don't need the wooden board of the CA93, we would like to know your opinions about the opportunity of exchanging our CA93 for this CA67. Thanks

What is it about the CA67 that you prefer, compared to the CA93 ?

hi, thanks for your reply, actually I was looking for an answer to that question from the people of the forum; we use our ca93 mainly as grand piano and the most important aspect is the touch feeling, so we would like to know if this feature is better in the newer 67 than the older 93; furthermore, any other suggestion about anything else that may seems important are welcome; and, finally, we would like to know if anybody who knows both the two DP would prefer a newer ca67 to an older (5 years) ca93 for classical music practicing (in the evening, during the day we use a u1h yamaha)
btw, I realize now that there's a mistake in the first post of the thread but I cannot edit anymore so I will say here that we use the DP mainly with headphones, so we don' need the wooden board,
thanks

That clarifies your point and makes clear your question.

You may get answers to that question here ... but keep in mind that your question seeks an opinion. And I think the best opinion will be your own.

So try the CA67 and compare it with your CA93. Make your own judgement.

talamundele, comparing the two instruments:

CA93 core specs:
- RM3 Grand keyboard action (2-sensor, let-off, bass key counterweights, Ivory Touch)
- UPHI sound engine (EX concert grand sampling)
- 16 x 2 characters LCD display

CA67 core specs:
- Grand Feel II keyboard action (3-sensor, let-off, 88-key counterweights, Ivory Touch, longer keys/pivot)
- Harmonic Imaging XL sound engine (SK-EX/EX/SK-5/K-60 sampling)
- 128 x 64 pixel LCD display

If you're not concerned about speaker sound or output power, etc. the CA67 is undoubtedly a superior piano compared to the CA93.

However, as MacMacMac notes, you should try the instrument for yourself, in order to form your own judgement.

Kind regards,
James

good morning (italian time zone here), and thanks for kind answers and/or opinions...we are looking for both; unfortunately it won't be easy to try the ca67; we live in Rome, the ca67 is in Florence (about 400 km, we will go there if we wil be sure to buy it); I went to some music store here in Rome but I didn't find an used ca67 to try; anyway, since we tried many other dp before buying our ca93, we are very confident in the kaway touch feeling, that is, for us, the most important aspect of the piano; and, about the answer of Mr Kaway James I feel obliged to thank him very much because, as always, he summarizes the main aspects of the problem in the shortest but clear and understandable way
(apologies for my english but my son, who is the true family pianist and english speaker is at school now...)

I have had both.

The 67 is quite a bit different thn the 93. The Action is much better. Has Let Off. The mechanical things are more robust. It is a triple sensor. I believe the actual sound electronics are better and also the speaker power is better. The 67 has a couple more voices as well.

The 'acoustic box' is quite an improvement. Larger and deeper than the 63. Makes for far better sound. Those are the items that attracted me. And the x9 series has many of the 67 features. Physically and digitally.

The 93 should offer a good price yet. And the 67 is a good value.

hi Mc Buster, thanks for your answer, in the end we have decided to buy the ca67 (unless somebody will buy it before us, we still have to sell our ca93, but we are confident); hope one day to be able to say "I have had both" too; and, in case we don't succeed, we'll keep our ca93 that, in any case, is still a great piano; thanks again, ciao
