The distinct feel of playing a Novus hasn't escaped attention. Since their global debut, both the NV10 and NV5 models have received high acclaim for their exquisite craftsmanship, design, and performance from pianists, educators, and musicians alike. They have also garnered industry recognition, with each winning a "Product Excellence Award" from Music Inc. Magazine - the NV10 in 2018 and the NV5 in 2020. With continued international acclaim, Novus instruments remain some of the most coveted in the industry.

An Acoustic Touch

In the early 20th century, Koichi Kawai laid the foundation for Japanese piano craftsmanship by designing and constructing the nation's first complete acoustic piano action. As the decades rolled on, Kawai's team of engineers has remained dedicated to their founder's relentless pursuit of perfection. Embodying the newest benchmark in Kawai's storied tradition of piano innovation, the Novus series hybrid pianos are distinguished by the Millennium III Hybrid action, a defining feature of every Novus model. This exceptional example of modern engineering endows pianists with the unrivaled sensation of playing an acoustic piano. Enhancing its grand piano action, the NV10 stands as the inaugural hybrid instrument to integrate a genuine grand piano damper mechanism. It's this devotion to emulating the nuanced touch of a fine piano that makes playing a Novus instrument indiscernible from an authentic acoustic experience.

Advanced Acoustic Rendering

At the core of the Novus series hybrid pianos, you'll find the essence and tone of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano, made possible through the utilization of Kawai's SK-EX rendering technology. This cutting-edge piano sound engine blends traditional sampling techniques with the contemporary process of physical modeling, resulting in a piano sound that is abundant in natural acoustic qualities and dynamically adapts to the player's musical expressions. Novus models further include high-quality sound delivery facilitated by audio components and speaker systems. These were designed in partnership with Onkyo, aiding in the preservation of the harmonic intricacies of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX.
