my wife an i have the opportunity to buy a less than year old Kawai E7 with delux stand and triple pedal set up and bench for $1,300 as the person has upgraded to a kawai baby grand. my wife plays piano at church but her old spinet at home died and unreparable, would this unit do fine for her practicing her music to be played each week or would the cn25 or ce220 we were origionaly going to buy do a better job and not limit her expanding her musical horizon?

Covfam73, the ES7 features the slightly older 'RHII' keyboard action, compared to the brand new 'RHIII' action found on the CN25. However, despite this, the ES7 remains an excellent portable instrument. When combined with the stand and pedals, the ES7 offers much of the functionality of the larger CN25/CE220 cabinet DPs.

My recommendation would be for your wife to play all of the instruments that you are considering, and opt for the piano that brings her the most enjoyment.

Kind regards,
James

James, do you know whether Kawai has in mind an upgrade for the MP7/ES7 where at some stage in the future they will have RHIII instead of RHII? That would make an already awesome machine even more awesome!

Alan, I'm afraid I cannot comment on models that may/may not be in development.

Kind regards,
James
