That used to be top specs DAC in previous millenium.
Its datasheet was geek's equivalent of a porn magazine.
What I would do is take any modern audio DAC, say PCM1753 and add a 
microcontroller to translate serial interfaces. Might be difficult if 
Clavinova utilizes high oversampling rate, but if it's around 50ksps, it 
seems doable.
OTOH making such retrofit will definitely cost more than buying even 2 
vintage PCM1702.
However, if Clavinovw feeds it with 24-bit words and not just 20, it 
might be doable without any translation, just a little abusement and PLL 
generated system clock.
