Soundboard Speaker System for Authentic Natural Tones

The Kawai CA97 Hybrid Digital Piano is built using an authentic wooden soundboard, which channels your sound through the entire instrument. This unique Soundboard Speaker System provides the CA97 with an exceptionally rich and vibrant tone, with the same resonance and tonal ambience as a true acoustic piano.

Virtual Technician Sound Customisation

The Concert Artist CA97 also features Kawai's innovative Virtual Technician technology, which allows you to shape the tonal characteristics of your sound to suit your needs. This feature offers various adjustable settings including voicing and regulation; string, damper and cabinet resonances; subtle hammer, damper and key release noises, and even the precise tuning and volume of individual notes. With the ability to store personalised configurations to memory, the Virtual Technician feature enables you to customise your instrument's character to achieve the piano sound you've always dreamed of.

Dynamic Response with Grand Feel II Wooden Key Action

The CA97 utilises Kawai's Grand Feel II wooden-key keyboard action, which emulates the distinctive smooth and responsive feel of playing a real acoustic grand piano. Crafted from long pieces of wood pivoting on a central balance pin, each of the CA97's keys throws a metal hammer when pressed, much like the action of a genuine acoustic piano. The hammers are all carefully micro-engineered to ensure perfect balance, and are graded in size and weight to provide a heavier response on the bass notes and a lighter touch at the treble end. The CA97 features triple-sensor technology, which accurately measures the forward and backward movements of each hammer for a supremely realistic playing experience.

Three Iconic Piano Sounds with Harmonic Imaging™ XL Sampling

The Kawai CA97 faithfully reproduces the sound of three world-class grand pianos: the acclaimed Kawai EX concert grand, Shigeru Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand, and Kawai's flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert grand. All three instruments have been expertly recorded and sampled using the latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology, allowing you to enjoy the incredible dynamic range and expressiveness of a professional quality grand piano in the comfort of your own home.
