Here's my Kawai RX-1 & I have enjoyed it's sound. Good lighting helps. The bass is rich & beautiful.
I did play the RX-2 and I love it too!

Beautiful piano! Great photo too, the orange lighting and Roses on top paint a rather romantic image.

That's nice, Diane. I like my small grand. It's more fun to play than a vertical for some reason.

The polished walnut RX-1 I was looking at was 16k. That's very tempting. While at SoCal Pianos I played my repertoire, such as it is, on a satin RX-5. What a piano.

Thank you! This is a 5'6" and is a baby grand. Everyone who sees it comments that it's a grand piano, which it isn't but I think a grand piano in black would sell. But from what I've come to discover, is once a grand piano is bought, it usually will stay in family. Grand pianos are nice to play and easy on the eyes.

An upright piano just looks at a wall, but a grand piano (baby grand piano) is like "driving a convertible indoors"! grin
