Kawai produces some great digital pianos and a model that has been one of their most popular is the furniture cabinet CN33. Kawai is well known for their acoustic pianos and many professionals as well as beginning students play on Kawai acoustic pianos. I know many people who own Kawai acoustic grand pianos and love them. However, in years gone by, Kawai has not been known for their digital pianos until somewhat recently. I believe Kawai has finally come out with new digital pianos that, in a lot of ways, is better than many of the more popular Yamaha Clavinova CLP digital pianos as well as equal to or better than the Roland HP digital pianos, but for less money.
The CN33 is nice because it's main focus is on piano tone and acoustic piano style key action along with a reasonable amount of extra features such as having 36 instrument sounds which includes eight piano variations along with electric pianos, organs, strings, choirs, and a few others. It has an easy to use digital interface display with a red LED (light emitting diode) technology instead of the LCD (liquid crystal display).
The CN33 has a basic 2-track recorder with 3 song memory locations along with other editing and basic functions like layer, split, duel play, and a few other things. It also has an interesting feature called "concert magic" which allows a beginner to feel as if they are playing well by pressing any key (or keys) and playing along while a built-in song is being played, and not hearing any mistakes on the melody no matter what key you press. Wow, I wish that was the way my songs came out all the time! However, I think it's somewhat gimmicky and there are other ways to have fun and actually learn to play a piano although young kids and beginner adults might enjoy it for awhile. Kawai also has built-in piano lesson songs in the CN33 from Alfred publishing which the student can play along with. The accompaniments come from a few popular Alfred lesson books and you can play along with the actual (standard MIDI) songs at any speed. However, they are "piano only" songs and are not fully orchestrated General MIDI arrangements. They are limited to a few of the Alfred publishing company books and that's it. So there are limitations to that feature but it's useful nevertheless.
The CN33 does have an very nice key action touch (with let-off feel and ivory touch keys), although it has a 2 sensor key action (as opposed to 3) but does have a resonant piano tone with good harmonics. However, the polyphony note memory is only 96 notes which is somewhat low compared with other Kawai digital piano models at 192 and 256 note polyphonic (much better tone and resonance), but over all, Kawai has done a good job with this model and I would recommend it. Current discount prices on the discontinued CN33's, assuming there are any remaining at stores, are around $1700-$1800 on average.
If you would like a Kawai piano for a better piano playing experience under $2000, then I suggest you look at the newer CE220 ($1899 internet price) with actual wood piano keys, 192-note polyphony, and a much better piano tone. Check out my blog review ion that model: Kawai CE220 Review
