Onkyo Collaboration

Kawai’s collaboration with audio company Onkyo gives the CA98 an excellent sound quality. The 1-bit DSD processing ensures a versatile tone whilst improving power efficiency for decreased distortion.

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.

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.

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 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.
