On what Yamaha Clavinova can you find the Natural Keyboard with real wood keys? It seems from my quick research that only the CLP175 and CVP309 have this? Also, are the actions in these two pianos the same? (I have not yet tried the CLP175, only the CVP309).

And finally, is the CLP175 being replaced by a new model that will also have the natural keyboard? I know there is a new line of CLP's coming out but not sure if the CLP175 will also have a new replacement.

Any info is appreciated as always.

BTW, I must say that the piano feel and piano sound of the CVP309 even on low volume without headphones was quite impressive and I'm a bit of a purist.

CLP280 has wooden keys. The CLP 2xx series has been introduced a short while ago in Europe. As far as I heard, they will (if not already) be available here in the US.

The new CLP-F01 also has real wooden keys. It's very different - don't know if I like it - I'd have to see one in person.
