Modern technology has made this an exciting time for hybrid pianos and the latest models by Kawai truly offer you the best of both ACOUSTIC and DIGITAL worlds. In this video, we compare two different types of hybrid pianos: The NOVUS NV5 (Action-Focused Hybrid Piano) and the CA99 (Soundboard-Focused Hybrid Piano).
The CA99's soundboard is the heart of its sound. An acoustic piano transforms the vibrations of the strings into the rich, full tonal quality the defines a great instrument. The CA99 uses these principles of tone creation in the unique “Soundboard Speaker System” that channels sound energy into a wooden soundboard to reproduce the full-bodied tonal ambiance of an acoustic piano.
The NV5 delivers the touch of a world-class upright piano through its Millennium III Hybrid upright piano action and a real damper mechanism that authentically replicates the natural motion and feel of an acoustic piano.
Both of these hybrids come with a modern touchscreen LCD display and Bluetooth and USB connectivity creating a cutting-edge playing experience for the player. With impressive sounds powered by Onkyo transducers – including the renowned Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert Grand Piano – these pianos are sure to impress.
