Kawai CA770
88 notes, Touch Wood, 24 Bran, 64-note polyphony and adjustable touch possible.
5 different reverb, Rotary 2, 3 Delay, Tremolo 1.
Recorder: 5000 x2 notes, métrome Function Concert Magic: the piano plays music
even if you do anything (to impress people in the late evening?)
Split possible (2) or superposition of two sounds.
Pedals: 3 (1 / 2 forte) + Leslie organ (I do not have pedals, a priori the middle
changes the speed leslie if enabled)
Amp: 2 x 40 W (4 HP) + Subwoofer
Headphones x 2 MIDI In / Out / Thru, Line In (Stereo), Line Out (Stereo), Serial / PC Interface
Cover, rosewood finish: it is pretty. But ...
142 x 51 x 108 cm, 71 kg (ouch)
The weight and bulk aside there is nothing wrong.

UTILIZATION

The keyboard is nicer than I had the opportunity to play and it is light compared to an acoustic piano, but very pleasant to the touch, you can adjust the sensitivity (5 positions).
It is much better than the Kawai ES 4 on which I play repeats.

Configuration is simple but the lack of cursor and the screen size means that it is a blow to take. You can not set very finely effects, but it's not a good synth.

MIDI works. I do not serve as basic functions, I can not say more.

SOUNDS

The sounds are very good: I use pianos, electric pianos (one of rhode imititation I particularly aggressive play) and Organ.
The bass is very present and defined, it's nice to feel the sound coming from the keyboard rather than a sound system put away. The volume is more than enough to jam, but with an aggressive drummer you have to push the sound and the bass begin to lose accuracy.
It can obviously be amplified.
You can choose between several emulations of the resonance of the strings inside the piano.
It is very responsive to touch, then I'm not a classical pianist or accustomed to
acoustic pianos but my ear is better than the yamaha / korg / roland I tried in stores.
I'm very satisfied I think it is a little above the ES4 but it's probably the amplification that makes the difference, in any case their sounds are similar to an electric piano almost (there has one more on SS4).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had 2 years and is the first piano that I am fully satisfied as to the sounds for the comfort of playing the sound from the keyboard is an extra comfort.

Obviously the problem is transportation, I have feet (and pedals), but it remains very compact and its shape makes it difficult to move.

I played on a lot of pianos before trying it and it cost me less than an ES4 (I got it used) and it is equal or better in all respects, apart from the congestion-.

It is solid and has had a troubled life before I did and I'm not a tricky player, but he is very good. (A key that is aging a bit but it is far from being a nuisance).

The series of CA is expensive (too much), but it is for me above most competitors in this particular case I got it cheap because there were no foot pedals or it becomes a great deal.
