The "msrp" price of this model is inflated. It's been $2299 since April and only recently shot up to $2899 - they probably raised it just to offer this "huge discount".

So, you're not really saving $1000 as you SlickDeals are making you believe. The real savings is only $400 or only 18% off. This is also the entry level CA series with entry level (lowest) grade keys in the line up. The models line up like this:

CA49
CA59
CA79
CA99

Since it's the lowest model, Kawai had to differentiate and really skimped out on connectivity. You will get much better connectivity options with Yamaha and Roland for the same price. It doesn't even have Bluetooth Audio, which is an insult to the consumer at this price. Make no mistake, this is very basic. This is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G model of digital pianos in the $2K+ price group, a product designed so basic to get people to buy the Galaxy Note 20 5G Ultra.

The deal breaker for me is that this doesn't even have basic line out jack. This is like buying a BMW just for the name but having less features than a cheaper Toyota. Go for Yamaha or Roland.

Powell also signaled that the Fed are going to cause pain to households and businesses to tame inflation [marketwatch.com]. We may see even steeper price drops in 6-9 months.

Plus, Black Friday is 2 months away. Retailers are really going to have to sweeten deals because peoples' disposable incomes are going to be razor tight.
