I played Kawai CA93 vs. CA63 side by side with headphones. It appears that CA93 sounds with more brilliance, even though the sampling is supposedly identical. I had made sure reset the basic setting back to manufacturing default on both models. So it is not because of key touch or headphone level difference. Is it possible that CA93 has a more upscale audio processing on top of the same piano samples?

Different headphone amplification/output impedance?

Another way of comparing might be to use the line outs of both pianos into the same headphone amp.
