Based on quite a few different opinions I have encountered in the past, mainly on the forum, I'd say:
1. K3
2. K8
3. Depends on individual instrument's condition, all are very capable of very good touch.

K3 is good for the price and on a budget. The K6 and K5 still sounded pretty deep to my ears.

If you wind up getting a K6 you might kick yourself for not spending a few more dollars for the K8.

I almost did that. That music desk is a life saver for me. I do a lot of composition and voice work. So nice to have.

That being said if it's at the top of your budget get a K6 over a K5.

IF your budget is low and want bang for the buck, before you buy a Kawai, at least look at the Hailun H33P. If it doesn't float your boat, then go for the Kawai.
