View Full Description
The Bluetooth connectivity in the Kawai CA79 expands its functionality for modern users. The audio function allows you to wirelessly connect your iOS or Android smart device to stream audio directly through the piano's speakers. This is ideal for playing along to your favourite music, listening to lessons or for use as a hi-fi system. The Bluetooth MIDI connection is suitable for recording your compositions directly to your device in a high-quality format. The CA79's Bluetooth function is popular amongst students wanting to learn independently.
Unlike previous models of the CA series, the CA79 features new speaker diffuser panels. These panels spread the sound to produce a more immersive listening experience. It doesn't matter where you're sat in the room, the CA79 always provides a natural 360 performance.
Kawai's collaboration with audio company Onkyo ensures the CA79 has impressive tonal depth. The 1-bit DSD processing improves power efficiency for decreased distortion. The CA79 benefits from Onkyo’s premium dual DACs, which have a stereo sound effect and respond with precision to your playing. The DIDRC filter technology removes the unnecessary high frequencies and static noise that digital instruments produce at loud volumes, resulting in a more natural sound. The power amplifiers capably handle any level of sound, as well as being energy efficient for reduced background noise. Onkyo and Kawai’s collaboration results in an authentic, natural piano sound.
SK-EX sound engine
The CA79 has a sound engine that faithfully recreates the tone of an acoustic piano and features samples from the flagship SK-EX. The piano is sampled from multiple sections of its cabinet for a more organic, accurate tone with calculated resonance modelling creating realistic reverb, dampness and cabinet sound. The range of piano sounds provides options for all musical styles.
Personalise your tone
Built into the CA79 is a 5'' LCD touchscreen display to access a range of functions to enhance your enjoyment of your digital piano. In Pianist mode, you can adjust the rendering characteristics of the piano to change the tonal qualities and also the resonance depth for even more control. The Virtual Technician allows various characteristics of the sounds to be adjusted from the key volume, damper noise, and touch curve, for example. Kawai's multi-instrument sound engine includes electric and acoustic pianos, organs, and strings, to name a few. Sounds can also be layered and split for a standard split function or 4 hands.
Recording, Hi-Fi, and Bluetooth
The Kawai CA79 has a host of modern functions to expand its potential. Connect an iOS or Android device and stream audio to your piano for a home audio experience like no other. Use apps to play along, learn, or compose. Record with Bluetooth MIDI to perform, playback, and improve your own compositions.
