I always liked and prefered Clavinovas, and hated Roland's pianos. But now, with the "new" Clavinovas, I'm not sure anymore. If you could find a CVP-96 or 98, will would have a good digital piano, and really easy to use. New clavinovas have a lot of good things, but they don't give you the options you need, they are highly incompatible (even between their previous models), and very difficult to use. If you're a person that needs to change instruments, effects, DUAL mode, 1st voice volume, 2nd voice effect, etc., during a song, you will be surprised with the mess that you have to do to change what you need. My God! Old Clavinovas - OK. New Clavinovas - Run away!
