The CE220 boasts the AWA PROII wooden-key action, one that has been found on many award-winning Kawai instruments. This was the feature most often cited by owners of the CE200 as the reason for their purchase. With the CE220 Kawai has added to this popular feature several other upgrades and new features as well, including Kawai's Progressive Harmonic Imaging sound technology with 88-key piano sampling, which produces a more detailed, clear and realistic piano sound. It also comes with a convenient USB to Device capability. This allows you to record a song or practice session to a USB memory stick. The song can then be played on another instrument or loaded into a computer for printing a score or emailing to a friend or teacher.Another significant upgrade is 192-note polyphony, nearly 100 more than it's predecessor.Another sweet feature the CE220 has is both a Dual Mode, in which two sounds are played at the same time, and a Split mode, in which one sound plays on the left side of the keyboard and another sound plays on the right side. A special 4-Hands Mode creates two identical 44-note pianos on the keyboard - great for piano lessons or for duets.The CE220 has a convenient Balance Slider on the panel that controls the balance in a Dual or Splt Keyboard mode, two headphone jacks, a built-in metronome with a variety of time signatures, 100 built-in rhythms, 29 classic piano songs stored insides with an accompanying music book for learning, as well as a MIDI, Line In, Line Out jacks, and an extra USB jack.Finally, Kawai's designers gave the CE220 a beautiful premium satin black finish with matching bench, a sliding key cover, and three pedals which offer the same functionality as Kawai's world-class acoustic grand pianos.
Top Customer Reviews
Nothing feels cheap on this piano. The build on my older casio was actually decent, but the button panel was extremely cheap feeling, like tin, and almost felt like it was going to pop out every time i turned the thing on. The 220 panel board feels nice and the buttons also feel well made; like they will last a while. The wood and finish is also very nice. The music stand can be laid flat without detaching so I can place my laptop on it.
I would say my only gripe is that the pedals could feel a little more authentic. They still use the stiff spring system similar to my casio, perhaps a little better. However, it does the job and there is the half-pedal feature with the damper pedal, which i think is standard on most new d-pianos.
Kawai also has the ca-65/95 series which is, in a sense, an upgrade to this model; having an improved key-action and even more authentic sound. But, they are almost $2000 dollars more for that 15% extra you get. This I think is the best bargain out there right now.
Oh, and it DOES come with a bench, a nice one in fact, contrary to what another person said.
The piano sounds include three grands, and they sound magnificent. Multilevel sampling (four velocities for each of the 88 keys) gives a rich sound that I can't match for less than $3000.
I tried testing harmonics, and it worked. Most digital pianos in this price range cannot do it. Here's how: slowly depress the key for C above middle C. You want no sound, just the key fully down. Now, strike middle C hard then release middle C. You should hear the octave ringing in sympathetic vibration. It's called "string resonance." Release the higher key and the ringing stops. This works for all overtones (harmonics). Try E's and G's all over the keyboard. (Later on, as I read the Owner's Manual, I found a description of this demo.) The overtones have frequencies related to the frequency of the struck note by integer ratios; 2:1, 3:1, etc. Aside from fun physics, you will find many digital pianos that cannot do it! Yet, this is one of the most important characteristics of acoustic piano. At a price where some competitors feature 300+ voices, the CE220 features just 22. There are some very interesting pads and a nylon strung guitar, but the obvious emphasis was on great keyboard sounds, and it shows! Three grands, two jazz organs, three church organs, two electric pianos, etc. I found the grands wonderful. I'd have to spend an extra $1000 to equal these piano sounds.
Next on my wish list was a wonderful touch. Once again, the CE220 excels. I haven't found a better touch within $1000 of this price. Long wooden keysticks, along with their guide pins and central pivots were lifted right from a Kawai upright. Each key is counter-weighted, and the action is graduated, being heavier in the bass. Each key has a multi-lever action with a hammer that swings upward (like an acoustic grand). Instead of hitting strings, as with an acoustic.
Finally, I wanted a beautiful cabinet in our home, not a stage piano. The satin black is gorgeous. The metal control panel and the sliding keyboard cover are very sturdy.
Kraft offers a $40 shipping option to deliver "to room of choice," Not just over the threshold. At 80 kg, this baby is heavy, and I took the option.
Don't worry about assembly (except the console needs two people to lift and position it. There are two side panels (1.25 in. thick), the pedal board, the back ("courtesy panel"), and the console itself. As I recall, you only have to drive 16 screws. All the hardware is distributed in small plastic bags, stapled inside the wooden part they work with.
