I am going to buy the stage piano Kawai MP6 and I need external speakers (active monitors) for it.

I found here http://www.thomann.de/gb/kawai_mp_6_stage_piano_bundle.htm the bundle: the piano + the monitor speakers ESI uniK 04 (1355 euro for this bundle).

I am totally newbie to active monitors - what do you think about that set? Is that monitors appropriate for playing just for myself and 2-3 other people in my 4x4 meter living room (I usually play plain piano music and also rock music)? I do not want to play loud - but the speakers should sound "great" (or satisfactorily) at low volume.

Or can you recommend me some other online kawai stage piano stores in europe (for free shipping to my country Slovakia)?

First problem:

. . . No loudspeaker will sound "great" at low volume.

Look up "Fletcher-Munson Curve" for an explanation -- it's not simple. If you lower the volume (from "real piano" levels), you should adjust the equalization (EQ) to compensate. I think the MP-6 has EQ adjustments, which is very nice.

Those loudspeakers will sound better than most loudspeakers built into "slab" pianos (Yamaha p155, etc). The 4" woofers will limit the loudness in the bass.

5" woofers (or 8" woofers!) would be better, but also more expensive.
