I actually purchased a new cellphone, as my old Samsung didn't qualify to connect by piano remote but using it just presented another hindrance to my getting down to playing. Anyway, as I'm now playing on default settings the problem is resolved. In hindsight, if I'd added the cost of the new phone to the price of the KDP120 I could have purchased the CN29 which does have a save settings function. Now, it's too much laptop playing and not enough piano playing.

The Kawai KDP-75 is also very impressive, IMHO! With the embodied Shigeru Kawai SK-EX tone, it sounds so...much better than many other DPs out there...! The treble notes sound crystal and melodious, and the bass notes come out sufficiently rumbling but not muddy! You can even feel the simulated resonance of the strings, hammers, cabinets, etc.

The touch (action) is very decent as well. The action is not absolutely perfect if you compare it to the action of an acoustic piano or a higher-end DP (it somewhat lacks the after-touch resistance). For its price range, however, it is one of the best. When you play it, the touch "feels right". The keys have matte surface and are not slippery, and the keys' weights resemble those in an acoustic piano. The dynamics come out properly. I test-played partially a piece with soft (pp) and suddenly loud (mf), and I was able to express these dynamic ranges on the KDP75, which - I think - is amazing!


I have tried a variety of DPs displayed in a few local music stores. I liked a few models made by other companies such as Yamaha YDP-184, or Roland RP-501, but never truly enjoyed the tone of any particular one until I got this KDP75 (sight unseen, honestly, and taking a leap of faith.) Kawai seems to have done this KDP-75 mostly right! Of course, it could have been nicer if they had put in larger speakers. It would connect more conveniently, if they gave it Bluetooth. But then, probably, it would cost more! For the price range, it is a winner for anyone who wants a DP on a budget or as a secondary piano. I hope it would last well for several years without troubles. (Time will tell on durability.)

Sounds quite nice there - this KDP-75. But I think the reverb or something for the bass notes is dialed way too high. Got to wind it down a bit.
