Grand Feel III Compact keyboard with wooden Keys
The CA-49 model features the new Grand Feel III Compact keyboard with wooden keys, giving it a very realistic playing feel. All 88 keys are made of solid wood, and the white keys feature an Ivory Touch surface that supports piano playing and absorbs perspiration from the fingers. The keyboard features hammers with graduated weight, counterweight in the basses and escapement (let-off) mechanism. In addition, the 3-sensor technology ensures optimal repetition and game control.
Grand Feel pedal system
The CA-49 is equipped with the Grand Feel pedal system. With this system developed by Kawai, the resistance when using the three pedals (sustain, soft and sostenuto) corresponds to the playing feel of the pedals of a real grand piano. In addition, the correct placement of the pedals was also taken into account.
Shigeru Kawai samples & Progressive Harmonic Imaging technology (PHI)
The CA-49 contains beautiful samples of the world-famous Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano, which is played in many concert halls around the world and is often selected by professional pianists. Using Kawai's Progressive Harmonic Imaging sound technology, the sounds of all 88 keys are reproduced very faithfully and accurately. By recording each key individually in this way, the character of the acoustic grand piano is particularly well preserved.
Premium ONKYO speaker system
Using ONKYO Premium Audio Technology, the sound system of the CA-49 is even clearer and more powerful than its predecessor. Signal paths without distortion with maximum dynamics offer high resolution and pure sound. The speaker system of the CA-49 delivers a total amplification of 40W spread over 4 speakers, with the low frequencies reproduced through the lower speakers and the mid and higher frequencies through the front speakers. The result is a full, and rich sound that closely matches the sound of a grand piano.
Thanks to Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology, the sound reproduction through headphones is more realistic and spacious.
OLED display with simple controls
Owing to the very user-friendly OLED display, operation is greatly simplified. All functions can be controlled via the OLED display equipped with new design, making keyboard operation unnecessary.
The CA-49 features integrated Bluetooth MIDI connectivity that allow the instrument to communicate wirelessly with supported smart devices. So by connecting the instrument to a smartphone, tablet or laptop, you can use a wide range of interactive app . You can also connect to Kawai's PianoRemote app, which allows you to adjust settings or sounds of the instrument through a user-friendly interface. The CA-49 is also compatible with the PiaBookPlayer app, allowing you to view and listen to scores of many classical performances through the instrument's speakers.
