Killomiter This update to the CA99/79 is a joke. It adds a number of "new" user-defined Virtual Technician parameters to the UI. All of these parameters have been available for over a decade, at least since the CA95. But they were removed in the CA99/79. So, it took Kawai 18 months to revise the UI and expose functionality that was already implemented in the system software.
This is the repeat of the CA98/78 story. Kawai delivered a deficient GUI and then addressed zero of the UI issues before discontinuing these models. Worse, several of the UI issues in the CA98/78/NV10 continue to exist in the CA99/79/NV10S. And, again, none of the UI issues were yet corrected in the current models. Kawai produces excellent DPs but either they do not really care about listening to customer's feedback and improve their products accordingly, or just have a truly incompetent software development team.
