#2018003 - 01/20/13 07:33 PM Narrowing my piano choices down to two Kawai... Which?

My hunt for an acoustic piano is narrowing down. I've found two Kawai pianos and curious about the difference in the models.

CX-21D, 1987, $2500

KS-2F, 1984, $3000.


Both pianos are in similar condition, inside and out; two different dealers in my NY area.

What would account for the $500 difference? Any suggestions on one over the other? I believe I've read good things about KS-2F as predeccsor to current models, but not much abotu CX-21D (though I wouldnt shy away from it just because of lack of reading).

Comments/suggestions? Thanks.

Here's a previous discussion of the KS-2F:

Here's a previous discussion of the CX-21D:

For 30-year-old pianos, condition is important: degree of wear, not just cleanliness inside. Any warranty provided by the dealer is important as well.
