The Grand Feel II system has wooden keys and weighted hammers that allow the nuances in your playing to shine through. Bluetooth connectivity allows audio to be streamed through the piano's speakers to accompany your playing. The Kawai CA78 benefits from a 5-inch touchscreen to quickly navigate between features. The 6-speaker system has been tuned to produce loud, clear volume without distortion.
Please note, the box has been opened as part of our quality control inspections and as such all the seals have been broken. The item itself is brand new and has never been used.

The Bluetooth connectivity of the CA78 expands 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 allows you to record compositions directly to your device in a high quality format. The Kawai CA78’s Bluetooth function is popular with students wanting to learn independently.
Kawai’s collaboration with audio company Onkyo means the CA78’s features an impressive tonal depth. The 1-bit DSP processing makes you piano’s tone more versatile, whilst improving power efficiency for decreased distortion. The CA 78 benefits from Onkyo’s premium dual DACs, which have a stereo sound effect and respond with precision to your playing style. The power amplifiers are designed to 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.
The CA78’s sound engine produces a faithful replication of acoustic piano tones. The sound engine uses the flagship SK-EX acoustic piano as its sample base. The overall note is tuned from multiple samples within different sections of the piano for more authentic tone. Each key benefits from calculated resonance modelling which adds textures to your sound such as key dampness, cabinet sound and reverb. The CA78’s two sound engines and range of piano voices cover enough tones to suit all preferences.
Musicians can instantly navigate between the CA78’s features using the 5 inch screen that's touch sensitive and colour lit for ease of use. The CA78’s on-board ‘Pianist’ function allows quick editing of the piano voices. The CA78’s ‘Favourite’ setting allows you to instantly recall your frequently used settings.
