The KAWAI KDP-80 is a revolutionary digital piano, combining the latest technological advances with traditional craftsmanship inherited from KAWAI's many years of experience in the digital piano market. The KDP80 keyboard provides the touch response and full dynamic range required for superb performance with piano, harpsichord, organ, and other instrument sounds. With its special "Lesson" function featuring music from Burgmuller's 25 Progressive Pieces, and exercises from Czerny's 30 Etudes De Mecanisme, the KDP80 is perfect for students and piano teachers. In addition, the KDP80 digital piano is equipped with industry standard MIDI connectivity, allowing a number of other electronic instruments to be controlled and played simultaneously as well as the possibility to make digital recordings where you can alter the sounds at a later stage.
The Advanced Hammer Action IV-F keyboard has been developed to represent the distinctive touch of a traditional grand piano, with its remarkable springless design providing consistent upward and downward motion for a smooth, more natural, piano playing experience. Moreover, just as acoustic pianos utilise heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers, the AHA IV-F keyboard also employs diferent hammer weights, appropriately graded for each playing range. Such attention to detail allows greater stability during fortissimo passages, while preserving delicate pianissimo control, to satisfy the demands of even the most discerning pianist.
The authentic sound of KAWAI digital pianos begins with the world renowned KAWAI EX Concert grand piano. Placed inside an anechoic chamber, free of audio relections, the rich sound of this world class instrument is meticulously analysed and recorded by our Master Piano Artisans. The acoustic portrait of each note is later transformed into a precise three dimensional digital representation, employing KAWAI' s proprietary Harmonic Imaging technology. his unique process faithfully reproduces the broad dynamic range of the original grand piano, from subtle pianissimos to thunderous fortissimos.

It is an excellent piano, cheap, and all for the cost of 799 pounds, amazing!
Wonderful piano for studio/home/church

This piano is wonderful! The touch of the keys is so similar to a normal piano that I sometimes forget that I don't have a baby grand. (Not really, but it's close.) The transpose features are great if you like singing in a different key from the music you're playing, and the record feature has lots of benefits.

I've used the KDP80 pretty extensively in my home and for dozens of performances and it has never failed to disappoint - the keys are very sturdy and even after a year and a half of extremely heavy use (and a few unfortunate knocks and bangs) it has yet to jam or stutter or show any signs of wear and tear at all.
While it is incredibly heavy (as you'd expect with the weighted hammers in the keys) it more than makes up for it with the fantastic sound quality and great feeling keys.
If I ever need a new digital piano I'll come straight back to this model because it is by far the best value I've ever come across.
A lot of Piano at a good price

It's a lot of piano for a great price. It's very solid and well made. The sound is awesome, especially the range of instruments available.
The ability to add different instruments means it's great fun to play about on and create some weird stuff.
The lesson function is so handy for my daughter as she is learning to play, and so far she seems to be loving it.
All in all it is a brilliant bit of kit for the price.
Kawai KDP80 Excellent value for money

It is the only one that I have tested that had total consistency of touch throughout the entire keyboard. The acoustic resonance was a feature, and the graduated key weight effect very good.
I was not looking for a lot of "bells and whistles" so the 15 voices provided were more than adequate for my living room. The sound through headphones is exactly the same as models costing much more, since the speaker size is irrelevant.
