I had a chance to look at but not use one last week.  I was interested because I have the Delonghi 7 qt which I believe it is descended from (the Delonghi descended from the Kenwood).  The Cuisinart had a new rounded top and an electronic speed control but otherwise looked the same.  The sales person pretty much agreed.

That said and assuming they are about the same, I would say that it's a good, powerfull machine but with all the pitfalls of any stand mixer.  Although the dough does not climb the dough hook as much as it did on my KA, it will still eventually climb.  I bake a lot of bread (in addition to pizza) at 67% hydration and bagels and bialys at about 58% hydration and the drive train never falters.

If you're looking to buy, you might want to search Bosch or DLX on this site. They seem to be popular. I looked at a Bosch when I was in the store and have to say that it was a very nice machine.
