The Touch of a Grand Piano
For that realistic grand acoustic piano feel the CA78 utilises the Grand Feel II keyboard action for expressive playability in a compact design. Keeping with the established principles associated with acoustic pianos all finely textured 88 black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood absorbing moisture and assisting control. The keys pivot smoothly on a balance pin for a seesaw motion and when pressed, the back of the key lifts, triggering a grade-weighted hammer to strike a pressure switch. The amount of force applied to this switch is then measured, and the corresponding note played with authentic tonal character and touch.
The Sound of a Grand Piano in Every Note
The CA78’s sound engine produces the same tones just like that of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX concert grand piano for warm tones with a heavy, dark reverb. These high-end grand pianos have a reputation as Japan's premium pianos, gracing the stages of concert halls and musical institutions around the globe, receiving universal acclaim for its exceptional clarity and dynamic range. The Kawai Harmonica Imaging sound technology captures the magnificent tone of the flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano by recording each key individually, preserving the rich harmonic character.
Premium Sound Technology in collaboration with Onkyo
Onkyo is Japan's leading premium audio equipment manufacturers known for their high-end audio reproduction. The CA78 is Kawai first instrument to utilise their specialist component technology for exceptional tonal depth. The power of this cutting-edge component technology such as the 1-bit processing, dual DAC signal conversion and Onkyo’s DIDRC filtering, the CA78 optimised power amplifiers reproduce the Shigeru Kawai grand piano sound with stunning clarity, richness and power, while the high-performance Discrete SpectraModule headphone amplifier ensures the finest quality listening experience.
Easy to Use Interface
To the left of the keyboard is a new, easy to use control panel touch screen that is touch sensitive and colour lit. The attractive user interface makes navigating the CA78 onboard features a breeze to swipe through. The screen is at a comfortable reaching distance and accessing functions like the pianist mode offers quick editing functions to the piano voices. The screen can also be set to turn off automatically while playing, thus preserving the instruments’ acoustic piano-like appearance, and minimising any visual distractions to the performer.
The integrated Bluetooth MIDI technology, allows the digital piano to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly. By connecting your smart device you can easily expand the instruments’ functionality with a wide range of education, performance and scoring apps.
