hi im sorry if i have been boring people with my requests for comparisons but its sometime difficult to make the best choice being a beginner and trying to know whats important. i was about to order my first piano kawai cn34 but a new ca63 has came available just 200 gbp more . Is the ca a big difference in sound and touch /action to the cn34 albeit the cn34 is newer technology
i know resale value later on will most likely favour the newer model but in terms of features to get a better playing experience as i progress would the older series but higher spec model be a better choice ?

kind regards
Nigel

Considering the ca63 is a lovely piano and very well respected in its class your not really going to have an issue with resale value if the buyer does his research...

Hmm...I'm not terribly keen on the cherry finish, however for an extra 200 GBP, I'd say go for the CA63 over the CN34.

Cheers,
James
