Unmistakable quality. Experience the power of a grand piano. By combining traditional piano design with innovative Japanese technology, Kawai have made a piano full of prowess and character - the Kawai Novus NV10 hybrid digital piano.
At the heart of the Kawai NV10 is the Millennium III Hybrid action. This feat of modern engineering enables you to enjoy the incomparable feeling of a grand piano, regardless of the time of day, or the size of your home. This action is so good that it is used in Kawai's concert GX acoustic grand pianos.
To ensure you get the best possible experience, Kawai have collaborated with Onkyo to produce specialist filtering and amplification components. This premium technology faithfully reproduces the unique harmonic characteristics of the Shigeru SK-EX concert grand piano which is at the soul of the NV10.

Kawai's acclaimed NV10 is the first digital instrument to integrate their acoustic grand piano keyboard action with digital technology. Renowned for the revolutionary use of extended spruce key sticks and innovative ABS Carbon components, the keys are made stronger, lighter, and inevitably more stable than conventional wooden parts seen in acoustic pianos. With the touch and feel of a concert grand piano, the NV10 really is indistinguishable from a grand piano.
The NV10 gives you more control over your performance. Created with lighter materials, the NV10 allows you to play with extra speed, without compromising comfort. Thanks to the Integrated Hammer Sensing System (IHSS), the NV10 reveals the subtle nuances of every single note. The key sensors are carefully placed so to respond to the lightest of touches. This is perfect for more complex performances where notes are repeated in quick succession.
Advanced piano players require a high-quality dampening system for an expressive performance. The NV10 utilises an updated hybrid method to achieve the most dynamic response possible. Despite there being no strings, the high precision optical sensors can transmit detailed information levels to pick out the subtle nuances in your style. When engaged, the pedal subtly releases key pressure for a more authentic likeness to acoustic pianos.
Kawai's collaboration with hi-fi audio company Onkyo gives the NV10 the sound projection and clarity it deserves. 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. This feature maintains the classic tone assigned to Kawai pianos, while eliminating any unwanted background noise.
The NV10's speakers are specifically positioned to project groups of frequencies. The lower facing speakers produce warm, thick bass tones, while the top speakers project clear highs. The result is a rounded overall sound with an authentic projection for both the audience and the performer. Onkyo have also designed the headphone speaker experience, so your rehearsals and private use remain immersive.
Built into the NV10 is a 5'' LCD touchscreen display to access a range of functions to enhance your enjoyment of the hybrid 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.
Installed on the NV10 is a vast library of songs that can be used to demonstrate the capabilities of the hybrid piano as well as serving as a lesson tool. Songs and pieces can be sped up, slowed down, set with a metronome and also the focus on the left hand and right-hand parts can be varied to focus on particular sections. Learn at your own pace with the NV10.
