Hello everyone,

I would like to ask you if there is a big difference in what CA95 can offer vs CA93. I found an excellent CA93 last weekend (good price too!) and was wondering if the difference is warranted for the new GF action. I have also tried a CA63 not not the newest CA95/65.

CA 63 is an excellent instrument as well, and might help if mainly playing low volume or headphones. I live in a condo now, and this might me an issue, but plan on moving to a larger home at one point.

Any advice on whoever had a similar dilemma? I will plan on trying CA95/65 next week, but I am afraid the current CA93 deal will go away and will have to wait for a while.

Any input, Kawai James?


Thank you all very much!

Hello kawai07,

This is a tricky one, however I recall someone asking a similar question regarding the CA95 vs CA93. At that time I prepared the following list:

- GF keyboard action (longer keys, longer pivot point, 3-sensor, more counter weights)
- HI-XL sampling
- 256 note polyphony
- More powerful generator (improved reverb, effects, noises, modelled resonance, amp sim, etc.)
- Many more Virtual Technician parameters
- Improved sounds (jazz grands, upright piano, EPs)
- Larger LCD, improved user interface
- Improved Soundboard Speaker system
- Line In recording
- Load/Save registrations and settings from/to USB
- USB audio recorder improvements (overdubbing, line-in recording, recorder gain, SMF-->MP3)
- Improved cabinet design (including metallic KAWAI lettering)
- Grand Feel Pedal System (correct weighting of all three pedals)
- Adjustable music rest angle
- Lower power consumption (including auto power-off)
- More compact jack panel, headphone/USB jacks mounted at front of instrument
- Higher model number


Of course, the decision ultimately depends on how much you are willing to spend. If you believe the CA93 deal (presumably second hand?) is too good to pass up, and enjoy how it plays/sounds, perhaps that's the one for you.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James
