Kawai CA78 Digital Piano Polished Ebony

What We Think 

The Kawai CA78 really is a stunning piano to behold. The first thing to note is the lack of actual ‘buttons’ which usually adorn digital pianos. Instead there is a large 5” colour touch screen which is not only amazingly clear to read but is also incredibly responsive to use. The first sound which you will experience is of course a piano, but not just any piano. This is the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX – an incredible piano which demands a six figure sum to own. However it’s not just about how the piano sounds, but how it feels and the Kawai CA78 has a feel which you would find very difficult to distinguish from the real thing. The ‘Grand Feel II’ wooden key action is crafted from long pieces of wood, pivoting on a central balance pin so that they behave just as they would on a real grand piano. Key counterweights are placed within each key to finely balance the touch and feel of each key press. This really is a stunning piano which you must try.

The Kawai CA78 Digital Piano benefits from a collaborative design with Onkyo, resulting in upgraded audio processing and speaker projection. The CA78 is equipped with an SK-EX sound generator that produces multi-channel samples with developed tonal character. The piano's wooden hammer action keys are a weighted feel that has an expressive response. This model's Bluetooth compatibility offers a range of educational and performance-enhancing apps to connect with from your smart device. The Kawai CA78's 5-inch touchscreen offers a convenient way to instantly navigate between features. The 6-speaker system has been tuned to produce loud, clear volumes without distortion.

Kawai

Established in 1927, Kawai is now one of the largest music manufacturers in the world. Kawai focuses only on creating high quality acoustic and digital pianos and have produced some of the most famous concert grand pianos in the world, such as the Shigeru Kawai EX and Shigeru Kawai SK-5. In creating their range of digital pianos, Kawai make use of this expertise to replicate as closely as possible the experience of playing an acoustic grand piano. Kawai pioneered the use of wooden key components in digital pianos and continue to innovate for an ever more authentic piano playing experience.

Bluetooth Connectivity

The Bluetooth connectivity in the Kawai CA78 expands its 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 is suitable for recording your compositions directly to your device in a high quality format. The CA78’s Bluetooth function is popular amongst students wanting to learn independently.

Onkyo Collaboration

Kawai’s collaboration with audio company Onkyo upgrades the CA78’s tonal depth. The 1-bit DSD processing upgrades your piano’s tone to be more versatile, whilst improving power efficiency for decreased distortion. The CA78 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.

SK-EX Sound Engine

The Kawai CA78 has a sound engine that faithfully recreates the tone of an acoustic piano. The sound engine features samples from the flagship SK-EX acoustic piano. The piano is sampled from multiple sections of its cabinet for a more organic, accurate tone. The piano sound also has a calculated resonance modelling which creates a realistic reverb, dampness and cabinet sound, adding depth to your performance. The two sound engines suit all preferences, whilst the range of piano sounds are ideal for even the most diverse musical styles.

Easy to Use Interface

The easy to use interface allows users to instantly navigate between the CA78’s features. The screen is a 5 inch, touch sensitive interface for an ergonomic use. The screen is conveniently placed to the left side of the keys for an easy reach. The colour lit background has an attractive look that is easier to scroll through. The on board ‘Pianist’ function allows you to edit and enhance each piano voice’s settings to suit your exact preference. The CA78’s ‘Favourite’ setting is instantly available on the screen, you can quickly recall your preferred presets. The touchscreen interface offers an easily accessible way of using your piano’s features.
