Kawai’s collaboration with audio company Onkyo ensures the CA98 has an impressive tonal depth. The 1-bit DSD processing improves power efficiency for decreased distortion. The CA98 benefits from Onkyo’s premium dual DACs, which have a stereo sound effect and respond with precision to your playing. 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 CA98 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.
Easy to Use Interface
The user friendly interface allows instant navigation through the Kawai CA98’s features. There's a 5 inch, touch sensitive screen conveniently placed to the left side of the keys within easy reach. The on-board ‘Pianist’ function allows you to edit and enhance each piano voice’s settings to suit your exact preference. The CA98’s ‘Favourite’ setting is instantly available on the screen, you can quickly recall your preferred presets.
TwinDrive Soundboard Speaker
The CA98 benefits from a TwinDrive soundboard speaker system. This powerful system features dedicated low and mid-range frequency speakers that are designed by Onkyo for exceptional sound quality. The bass speaker is positioned to the bottom of the cabinet for a more realistic frequency resonance. These speakers are placed behind a solid wooden cabinet to project the natural reverb and frequency balance of an acoustic piano. The TwinDrive technology offers a more powerful volume and increased headroom.
Recording, Hi-Fi and Bluetooth
The Kawai CA98 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.
