Hi,

Has any one heard of any Kawai KDX 850 (serial no. KDX-850 (serial. 194xxxx) pianos manufactured directly from Japan? A friend of mine has bought a secondhand Kawai KDX about 3 months ago but failed to trace its origins.

Searching on Piano World Website (http://www.pianoworld.com/kawai.htm)it shows that serial no. 194xxxx falls between 1989 (1856250) to 1990 (1950000).

But on another website (http://zhidao.baidu.com/question/25874068.html?fr=qrl3) its shows KDX only ranges from KDX-200 to KDX-600 and no mentioning of KDX-850 at all. And they also shows that KDX200/600 were near 1984. Quoted below:

==========
1984~ 1480000 NS-10\15\25\35 US-55\65
CL-2\3 KDX-200\600
==========

Can anyone help? Many thanks!

Are these digital piano Kawais? Nothing in my files match up with this model in acoustic pianos. Perhaps models only for Japan.

Hi Marty, Thanks for replying. It's not a digital. I got this (marked ***) from one website (http://zhidao.baidu.com/question/25874068.html?fr=qrl3):
