Kawai K300AR2SNWHP Acoustic Upright Piano White Polish

The Kawai K300 AURES-2 upright piano truly completes the divide between the organic expressiveness of an acoustic piano and the convenient, advanced functionality of a digital instrument. Sharing the same digital technology as the popular Kawai ATX4 Anytime silent models, the K300 AURES-2 adds a built-in sound system so that the digital aspects of the instrument can be heard without the requirement of headphones.

Using specially designed transducers, the digital sound is amplified using the natural wood components of the piano's soundboard. This not only allows the piano to be played in 'digital mode', but also gives the opportunity for mixing the digital tones with the pure acoustic voice of the piano. Imagine being able to play the acoustic piano, but hear the beautiful sound of a string orchestra following your every note - you can do it with the K300 AURES-2 piano!

The K300 AURES-2 functions as a standard acoustic piano, and also allows you to plug headphones in for silent practice when required.

It Begins With  A Quality Acoustic Piano

The K300 features Kawai's exclusive Millennium III Upright Action. Components made from ABS-Carbon are used in the action, which is lighter than traditional piano action components, yet none of the strength is sacrificed. This results in a fast and powerful action, giving more control and stability than wooden piano actions. Great care and detail has gone into every aspect of the K300, including the finest quality T-stapled hammers, which preserve shape and generate an exceptional tone with an added interior layer of underfelt.

Other features of the K300 include dual-beam aluminium hammer rail, die-cast aluminium brackets, ABS-Carbon flange & serrated rail surface, steel machine-threaded tuning pins, strong balanced back assembly, energy-reflecting contour bars, tapered soundboard made of solid spruce, wide 1-metre long music desk, and cast brass pedals.

Kawai AURES 2 - Combining Digital & Acoustic in one instrument

The new Kawai AURES 2 system offers the specification of a top-range digital instrument with the organic response and touch of an acoustic instrument. The K300 AURES 2 piano can work in four ways to suit your playing style and environment:

  1. Enjoy the playing experience of a 'normal' acoustic piano
  2. Plugin headphones and play in 'silent mode' so you don't disturb the neighbours!
  3. Play in the digital mode where you hear the sound of the digital piano amplified using the instrument's own solid spruce soundboard
  4. Mix digital & acoustic together - hear the sound of both the electronic voices mixed with the natural sound of the acoustic piano - you can get really creative with this mode! Example: layer the sound of a string orchestra with the K300's natural acoustic piano tone

To switch into 'Anytime' silent mode, simply push the power button, lock the centre pedal into the practice position, put on some headphones, and play! You'll hear the sound of the legendary Shigeru Kawai SK concert grand piano in your ears, but those around you won't hear anything!

The physical components of the AURES-2 system are fitted in Kawai's factory as part of the piano manufacturing process. This is far superior to retro-fitted silencer systems because the cable management, keyboard sensors, hammer stop rail, and electronics are integrated into the design of the instrument and therefore offers the most reliable and accurate method of combining electronic & acoustic piano technologies without compromising the performance of the original instrument.

The control panel located under the left-hand side of the instrument is equipped with dual headphone jacks so that two people can enjoy the AURES-2 piano in 'silent' mode at the same time. There is also an Audio AUX-IN so you can connect an external audio device to the instrument, as well as a LINE OUT jack that allows you to connect the 'digital' sound of the piano to external amplification or other devices. MIDI IN & OUT terminals give the option to expand the sound and functions further by connection to other MIDI-equipped instruments, and there is also a USB connector for connection to computers or smart devices.

Bluetooth + Apps

The Kawai K300 AURES-2 piano offers full Bluetooth MIDI + Audio capability with aptX support, for streaming high-quality audio from your smart device to the piano (this will be heard either through the headphones or the transducers connected to the instrument's soundboard).

There are two apps specifically recommended by Kawai that will help you get the most from your AURES-2 piano - PianoRemote and PiaBookPlayer.

If you want to explore the other voices (there's a total of 90 tones) or record your performance, load up the Kawai PianoRemote App for iOS or Android devices and you'll open up the true power of the AURES-2 system. It's like having a top-of-the-range digital piano hidden inside your acoustic piano. PianoRemote gives you full control over all features of the K300 AURES-2 piano.

The AURES-2 system allows you to play & hear the sound of many World-class pianos through headphones (Kawai SH9 included), or the instrument's own transducer system,  including concert grands, upright pianos, studio grands and even a honky-tonk piano. In addition to stunning acoustic piano voices, the AURES-2 features classic electric pianos, organs, harpsichords, strings, choirs, percussion instruments and even some synth pad voices. It's possible to layer any two of these voices together to create classic layered combinations such as piano+strings or organ+choir, or you could split the keyboard in two so that you have a different voice on the left register, to that on the right - for example, acoustic bass in the left hand and piano in the right, to create a jazzy feel.
