Grand Feel III Compact keyboard with wooden keys

The CA-401 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 have an Ivory Touch surface, which support piano playing and absorb perspiration from the fingers. The keyboard features graduated weight hammers, counterweight in the basses and escapement (let-off) mechanism. In addition, 3-sensor technology ensures optimal rehearsal and playing control.

Grand Feel pedal system

The CA-401 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-401 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. The new SK-EX Competition Grand sample was also added in the CA-401. 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.

New Speaker System

The CA-401's speaker system is even clearer and more powerful than its predecessor. Signal paths without distortion with maximum dynamics offer high resolution and pure sound. The CA-401's speaker system delivers a total amplification of 40W spread across 4 speakers, with low frequencies reproduced through the lower speakers and 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, sound reproduction through headphones is more realistic and spacious.

OLED display with easy operation

The very user-friendly OLED display greatly simplifies operation. All functions can be controlled via the newly designed OLED display, eliminating the need for keyboard operation.

Bluetooth MIDI and Audio connectivity

The CA-401 features integrated Bluetooth MIDI and audio technologies that enable the instrument to communicate wirelessly with supported smart devices. By pairing the instrument with a smartphone, tablet or laptop, you can therefore take advantage of a wide range of interactive apps or stream audio from, e.g., YouTube or Spotify. YouTube or Spotify. 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-401 is also compatible with the PiaBookPlayer app, allowing you to view and listen to scores of many classical performances through the instrument's speakers.
