Grand Feel III 

The CA79 is fitted with Kawai's new Grand Feel III wooden-key keyboard. Long keys with a balance pin create the closest feel you'll find to an acoustic piano, apart from the much more expensive Kawai Novus hybrid models. Both playing experience and reliability have been improved over the previous Grand Feel keyboard models.

White keys have a textured synthetic ivory feel, and the black keys are made of synthetic ebony. Weighted hammers, let-off (escapement) mechanism, and counterweights add to the authenticity of the playing experience, whilst the triple sensors capture every nuance of your performance.

Grand Feel III 

The CA79 is fitted with Kawai's new Grand Feel III wooden-key keyboard. Long keys with a balance pin create the closest feel you'll find to an acoustic piano, apart from the much more expensive Kawai Novus hybrid models. Both playing experience and reliability have been improved over the previous Grand Feel keyboard models.

White keys have a textured synthetic ivory feel, and the black keys are made of synthetic ebony. Weighted hammers, let-off (escapement) mechanism, and counterweights add to the authenticity of the playing experience, whilst the triple sensors capture every nuance of your performance.

The overall 'feel' of the CA79 keyboard is faster, firmer and 'less spongy' than it's predecessor due to the revised hammer cushion structure.

Kawai's Sound System - Improved - Shigeru SK-EX

The core piano voice found in the CA79 is that of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert Grand piano - an instrument found in the stages of concert halls all around the World. The CA79's SK-EX voice features multi-channel sampling and resonance modelling. The Virtual Technician function lets you create your own unique piano voices by adjusting parameters such as voicing, resonance depth, key-off effect, hammer noise, top board, key volume and more. In fact, there are a total of up to 21 parameters available to edit, including release time which simulates the sound of different sized grand pianos.

Three Pedal Grand Piano Functionality

The CA79 features three metal pedals - sustain, soft and sostenuto. The sustain and soft pedals offer half pedalling, and all pedals can be re-assigned to different functions through the instrument's operating system.

Premium Audio System by Onkyo

Kawai has teamed up with Japanese premium audio manufacturer Onkyo to incorporate one of the best sound systems available in a digital piano. The best audio components have been used, including 1-bit processing, premium dual DAC's, DIDRC filtering, premium power amplifiers and a premium headphone amp to ensure that the CA79 playing experience is the very best possible.

New premium-quality speaker units are placed in the top part of the instrument for mid-range frequencies, whilst front tweeters ensure high-range clarity is experienced by the performer. Low range frequencies are handled by the two bottom located speakers.

Speaker diffusers are fitted above the top speakers to expand the tonal projection. This creates a 360 degree sound field and ensures that a natural sound is heard no matter where in the room you are listening to the piano.

Familiar Touchscreen Interface

In keeping with modern technology, the CA79 is equipped with a 5" touchscreen with a simplified user interface. There are three main screens - piano voices, 'other' vices and 'music'. All acoustic piano sounds can be selected through the piano voice list, whilst other sounds such as e.piano, harpsichord, organ, strings and many more can be selected in the sound menu.

The CA79 is loaded with hundreds of songs, exercises and popular classical pieces for you to play along, use for practice purposes, or to simply listen to for pleasure.

Support for Android and iOS devices means the CA79 can be wirelessly controlled from Kawai's dedicated app which brings all operations and functions to the larger screen of your tablet device.

Bluetooth MIDI and Audio with aptX support

Bluetooth audio functionality allows you to stream music from other devices through the CA79's premium audio system. Furthermore, Bluetooth on the CA79 supports aptX which offers less latency and higher audio quality.

Bluetooth MIDI support means you can connect your computer or tablet device to the CA79 for external recording applications or creation of printed scores using software such as Sibelius - all completely wirelessly.

Other useful features

  • 8 Preset EQ settings plus a USER EQ ensures the very best tonal quality is heard no matter what the room size or conditions.
  • Wide range of keyboard touch options to suit most players, including a new 'light' touch curve suitable for children.
  • New "Low Volume" setting provides a more natural expression when playing at low volumes
