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!

Hello, No one?

Has anyone own a Kawai KDX (200-600) with proper history? Many thanks.

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