New to the forum, and first post.
I'm sure this topic will have been flogged to death, but I hope you won't mind me creating a new post, for the most-up-to-date and relevant information for myself.
Brief bio: Have played piano for 15 years, always on keyboards of varying degrees of quality (started as a kid on entirely non-weighted and currently have a Kurzweil SP4-8), whilst using real acoustics with teachers or to perform with etc.
I'm now looking to get a DP which is as close as possible to the action of an acoustic. I have done all the research and have been through a number of brands, but the ones that seem to me to stand out are the Kawai CA17 and CA67.
I'd like to know if anyone has played these - or tried them - and their thoughts. I have heard some stellar reviews, but also some people reporting to be less than impressed with the feel of the keys.
My budget is around £1500, and my main concern is with the action, not the onboard sounds, extra functionality or bells and whistles.
