Featuring Kawai's high performance Millennium III Hybrid upright piano action with real damper mechanism, SK-EX Rendering piano sound engine, and the unique TwinDrive soundboard speaker system developed in collaboration with audio specialists Onkyo, the Novus NV5 delivers true acoustic piano authenticity within a stunning, ultra-slim digital instrument.
The Novus NV5 is the perfect blend of tradition and innovation. A stunning hybrid instrument that combines a full acoustic piano keyboard action and damper mechanism, with the latest digital sound and amplification technologies. Designed for and tested by professional pianists, the NV5 provides the unmistakable feeling of playing a premium quality acoustic instrument, with all the practicality and convenience of a modern digital.
Introducing the Novus NV5 a hybrid instrument that delivers the true acoustic piano experience.
Koichi Kawai designed and built the first complete acoustic piano action in Japan in the early 1900s. In the decades that have followed, Kawai engineers continue to pursue the company founder's quest for perfection, pioneering the use of state-of-the-art materials and designs that advance the piano art form.
The Millennium III upright piano action found in today's Kawai 'K' series instruments exemplifies Koichi's philosophy. This highly-coveted action incorporates components produced using ABS Carbon, an extremely sturdy and rigid composite material that allows these action parts to be stronger, lighter, and faster than their conventional wooden counterparts.
Kawai 'K' series upright pianos also utilise extended length key sticks, providing greater control and a more even response from the front to the back of the playing surface.
There are no metal strings inside the Novus to require physical damping, as the instrument's sound is produced digitally. However, in order to reproduce every aspect of playing an acoustic piano, the NV5 retains the damper mechanism behind the keyboard action, replicating the extra load of traditional wood and felt parts, as the keys and pedal are pressed.
This innovation allows pianists to not only hear how the damper pedal affects the Novus' generated sound, but also feel the various mechanical interactions through their hands and feet. Such attention to detail is unprecedented in a digital instrument, and further reinforces the NV5's objective of delivering a true acoustic piano playing experience that is indistinguishable from the real thing.
