Yamaha C3x vs Kawai Gx3:Poll
« on: July 14, 2016, 11:07:32 PM »
After the weeks of researching and visiting the piano shops in Auckland, where I live, my family have narrowed our choice into two pianos, Yam C3X and Kawai Gx-3. I personally  prefer the gx-3, though, as I've been grown fond of Kawai after the years of practicing with Kawai k18 console, and I like how it looks very similar to steinway model A, with a nice mellow tone.(found out that they have the exactly same depth). After playing some chopin nocturnes that i finished practicing on gx-3, I just fell in love with it, but I just jumped out of the shop after reading the price tag that says 42995nzd(I mean, you can buy a vintage Steinway model B here in nz with 42k!),
which is 31k usd, I've never seen anything that goes over 42k in nz. Then I visited another store hoping that they would have yamaha C3X in stock, but none of them had one, I suppose it's too new.

I don't think our opinions really matter at all...only which one you like better. If neither has the quality versus price combination you think is right, then I'd say keep looking...

Agreed with outin.  It is your piano, and you need to make the determination yourself. 

The two models you have given are rather competitive, so it would be mostly up to personal preference.   
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
