I wanted to buy the Kawai ES-7, but I've been reading many negative reviews.
Like problems with the speakers, etc. I really like this model but now I'm kinda scared because of the negative reviews.
Is there a generalized problem with the speakers, volumes, etc of the Kawai ES-7?

Where have you been reading that ?

I believe the speakers are one of its' strongest features.

I think would be fair to say that the majority of forum members here who own ES7s (including me!) like it very much.

In my experience, the ES7's speakers do a very good job. I find them quite satisfactory for living room or practice studio use, and maybe even for solo or duo playing in small venues. The same is true for competitors like the Roland FP-80, for example.

The amps and speakers in slab DPs don't sound as good as the ones in their high-end console brethren, but that shouldn't be surprising. The performance of speakers and amplification systems in this product category is somewhat constrained by the form factor of the cabinets (and the price point of the instruments). It's a tradeoff for the convenience and portability of the slab form.

Obviously, you should play an ES7 before buying one (if reasonably possible), and thereby form your own opinion.

Kind regards,
Ben

How long have you had the ES7? Would you buy it again or something else? Any complaints?
