Wrapped in the warming sound of wood

Do you normally listen to your favourite music using earphones? From now on, let'™s try listening using AURES 2. Thanks to the unique acoustic properties of the instrument'™s wooden soundboard, music is able fill any room.

The sound source can be music stored on a smartphone or tablet, which can be sent wirelessly via the AURES' 2 Bluetooth® connection. If there is an AURES instrument in the room, it will become the audio room at any time.

Making the everyday piano performance more enjoyable with various functions

AURES 2 instruments allow the original acoustic piano sound, 88 different digital piano sounds, or both types to be enjoyed simultaneously. Even from an upright piano, it is possible to enjoy performances using the sound of a full concert grand piano or an organ.

Playing typical phrases using different sounds brings new discoveries. It'™s also possible to play-along with music stored on a smartphone to enjoy ensemble performances. AURES 2 instruments allow everyone to enjoy the piano, from beginners to advanced players.

Spending the evening alone, focusing on the piano

Of course, it is also possible to mute the sound produced by the soundboard, and focus on one'™s own performance using headphones to prevent disturbing family or friends nearby. By applying the built-in reverb effect, it is possible to reproduce the auditory experience of performing in a concert hall. AURES 2 instruments allow musicians to play the piano at any time, and enjoy the piano more and more.


AURES 2 instruments incorporate "Vibtone", a transducers components, that have been developed exclusively by premium audio specialists Onkyo. By using a vibrating wooden soundboard instead of a typical cone speaker, the sound is delivered in all directions with a warmer, more 'œmusical instrument-like' tonal character. The result is a rich, powerful sound that fills the room.


AURES instruments combine Kawai'™s high performance IHSS optical hammer sensing system with the latest SK-EX Rendering digital piano sound engine, allowing musicians to enjoy an ultra-realistic piano playing experience in complete silence. In addition, AURES instruments also feature a touchscreen display, allowing the various functions to be controlled with ease.


By playing accompaniment tracks from a Bluetooth-connected smartphone, it'™s possible to enjoy ensemble performances. Furthermore, because AURES instruments also include a digital piano sound generator, musicians can enjoy adding variety to their performance with the wide selection of non-piano sounds.
