The ES7’s class-leading Responsive Hammer II keyboard action recreates the touch of an acoustic grand piano. Realistic movement and rigid, springless design provide a smooth and natural piano playing experience. The ES7’s powerful new digital effects engine further enhances the instrument’s superior core sounds.
Bought a Kawai ES7 from Rose Morris having tried it in their showroom. Had tried all the Yamaha Clavinova's, the Roland FP7, plus many other brands and the Kawai stood out from the rest due to the sensational sound of the concert grand piano and the feel and responsiveness of the keys.I am a learner rather than a proficient musician but the expressiveness you can get out of the piano is really impressive. The backing tracks are pretty good, I think best if you keep them to just bass and drums. I bought the designer stand and pedals and the piano looks really modern and smart in our living room/study, but still retains its portability.Was really easy to assemble and is extremely well made as is the piano. Before buying a digital piano I would advise you to definitely try the ES7.
