I recommend the newly reissued Kohler KD5 digital Baby Grand Piano with built-in CD player/recorder at its new lower price (see price info below). This model is a limited edition piano and is only available in the US. I played this full size 5' deep digital baby grand about five years ago when it first came out and just recently again and was quite impressed with it...except for its original price at almost $7000. As of December 1st, I will be able to show you how to acquire one of these beautiful pianos for only $3999 in either polished ebony until when quantities are gone. This new lower price makes the KD5 more competitive in the lower price digital grand piano market, particularly because of its larger 5' baby grand cabinet and 360 watt 3 channel built in stereo speaker system.
A very unique aspect of this piano is that it has a built-in CD player/recorder. However, the keys on the piano DO NOT move up & down automatically from the CD because this model does not have a moving key "player system" built into it. Originally the KD5 was supposed to have the more expensive moving key system in it but Kohler decided to put that in a different model called a KD7 (which I have also reviewed on this blog). Otherwise the KD5 & KD7 are very similar. The KD5 CD player does allow you to play your favorite CD's through the piano's impressive sound system for listening entertainment or playalong with the piano, and you can even record your performance on the CD system and play it back, which is very cool. The CD player/recorder gives the KD5 that extra edge other piano don't have, including regular acoustic pianos. The player system also comes with a remote control unit for easy operation.

The KD5 is a unique mix of technologies that for most people who play at recreational intermediate levels or less, will be a great piano to own because it does sound impressive with full piano sound coming through this extra large built-in sound system. And if you also want this piano for it's looks and CD playing abilities, it's equally impressive, especially for its new lower price until quantities are sold which I imagine won't take long. Is this piano a replacement for a Steinway, Yamaha, or Kawai acoustic baby grand or the quality you get from one of those pianos?...absolutely not! But does the KD5 offer a satisfying playing experience for beginner through intermediate recreational players...yes it does.
