“Yamaha CLPS406 or Kawai CS7?”
I’ve found your piano guide most useful and the reviews which you collate.
I am considering a Yamaha CLPS406 or Kawai CS7.
I’d welcome your advice.

The Yamaha CLP-S406 is the better of the two pianos.
But only just.
The CLP-S406 has a slightly more responsive key action.
This is important when playing technically challenging
pieces. I also prefer its firmer key touch. The Yamaha
has a more solid feel at the bottom of the key stroke.
The Kawai feels softer.
Sound wise they are both very good.
If anything the CLP-S406 has a bit more depth to it.
This is because of the large acoustic box and cabinet.
Overall the CLP-S406 scores 73.60 out of 100 on the
Howard Score. The CS7 scores 69.45.
