The Kawai CA58 gives an authentic piano experience at a good value. I tried the entire line of Kawai Concert Artist Series multiple times at a local Kawai dealer and found that I actually preferred this middle tier model compared to the upper end CA98 and CA78. I would have bought from the local dealer too, but they wouldn't give me anywhere close to the deal I got with Sam Ash. Their loss, Sam Ash and my gain. The only thing I find it lacking is quality bass when playing music through the line in. This left me disappointed. But I mainly bought this as a substitute to a real piano and it definitely delivers on the tone for piano applications. The lower notes sound rich and natural. I may still add a cheap sub woofer to enhance the sound a bit. The freight company YRC that delivered the piano almost dropped it off of the truck twice. I had to jump in and save the piano. Also, they shipped the box standing on its end which the box clearly says not to do. Nothing was harmed, but I would expect the freight company to understand how to read the directions on a box.
