Out of curiosity, is the piano in your avatar something that has been announced yet?

Cool! You should take a laptop and start a thread where you fill us in on what you see there as it happens or something.

Yeah it's called the CP-50 and has been out for 3 years and the price went up to $1600 odd

I've got a Kawai EP3 in my wish list on Kraft Music's site. However, since the EP3 is the cut down version of the ES6, and the ES6 has been replaced with the ES7, I'm going to wait to see if an EP4 shows up before making that purchase.

Does that seem like logical logic, Kawai James???????

Hmmmmmmmm??????!!!!! LOL

I've got 6 events to attend ..... My prediction is for excessive consumption of alcohol to occur as pure boredom sets in due to the lack of interesting new products ..... Except for a couple of things wink

I'm sure glad I won't have the money for that purchase until after the show. That spoiler didn't spoil anything for me. He he.

Would be nice if there would be something for $1000-$1500 with decent speakers- which is probably too much to ask for.

I mean $800 for a four layer sample with ivory keys is great, but when there is no bass and you can't hear the mellow and dolce piano sounds what good is it??

I am no longer reading and spec sheets- they are misleading.
A manufacturer may advertise a model as having 2 x# of watt speakers, but they should also mention if the amplifier has been eliminated to save costs and improve profit margins.

As far as I am concerned, Korg have an opportunity to be heros this year:

Come out with something with both Yamaha and Steinway samples, decent 12 watt x2 speakers, and steal a decent action if you have to.

Otherwise the Yamaha P165 will do.

Problem is any time a manufacturer gives you one upgrade, they take away two.

At least allow the piano to be heard well externally.
