KAWAI DIGITAL HYBRIDS
NOVUS NV10 (Action-Focused Hybrid)
The centerpiece of an “action-focused” hybrid piano is, of course, the action. The NOVUS NV10 features our exclusive Millennium III Hybrid Grand Piano Action that offers the industry’s only “real grand piano hybrid damper mechanism” and specialized components developed in collaboration with leading premium audio manufacturer, Onkyo.
CA98 and CS11 (Soundboard-Focused Hybrids)
A “soundboard-focused hybrid” emphasizes the use of an authentic wooden soundboard to create the tone of the instrument. Our unique “Soundboard Speaker System” channels sound energy onto a wooden soundboard to reproduce the full-bodied tonal ambience of an acoustic piano. The result is a remarkably authentic playing experience that immerses the player in lush, resonant sound that has been called the finest in its class.
KAWAI ACOUSTIC HYBRIDS
Kawai Acoustic Hybrids begin with our renowned grand and upright acoustic pianos that have been the choice of discerning pianists for generations. When equipped with digital technology, these instruments can operate as full-featured digital pianos that can be played silently with headphones.
Because this acoustic muting capability allows them to be played “anytime” without disturbing anyone, they are dubbed Kawai’s “AnyTime Pianos.” See them at our showroom at 5800 Richmond Avenue in Houston near the Galleria.
