With reference to the keyboard, 12 black keys have the scratch pattern on plus one black key has a permanent mark on and there are 4 slightly bigger gaps between the white keys. Dawson's requested pics to send to kawai... just sent them so it'll be interesting the timescale of sorting this.... new keybed I will be assuming, better than a technical fault though as I still get to play :-)

German PianoWorld user might want to read my review about CA95 in the magazine "OKEY" (issue #110)
http://okey-online.de

I was very impressed by the key action and the piano sound.
... but KAWAI should re-think organizing the sounds in the sound-menu and spelling of rhythms.
maybe they can fix the mistakes with a firmware update...

wizardofkeys, may I ask if you have a direct link to your CA95 review, please? My German isn't terribly good (the automatic Google Translation in Chrome did not work correctly...), and try as I might, I was unable to find the review.

I'm interested to read your comments about the sound organisation as to my knowledge, this has never been a criticism of the CA range.

Many thanks,
James

So he/she has come on here to sell a magazine by stirring up bogus criticisms of the piano. Great.

I wonder if this DP grand feel action could be superior to upright acoustic pianos action in 3000-4000 euro budget?
I mean if getting ca95 could be equivalent or better for practice ,playing expression,precision then let's say restored acoustic yamaha U1 or similar kawai acoustic upright model.
