The piano sounds with Progressive Harmonic Imaging ™ technology and 88 key sampling are perfectly reproduced via the very balanced speaker system.

GRAND FEEL COMPACT MECHANISM WITH PRESSURE POINT AND WOODEN KEYBOARD WITH IVORY TOUCH SURFACE
The CA49 model is equipped with the new Grand Feel Compact mechanism with wooden keys, which - thanks to Kawai's 90 years of experience in piano making - enables an exceptionally realistic feel. All 88 keys are made entirely of long wooden parts, with the white keys - to optimize game control - provided with Ivory Touch coverings.
Each of the 88 keys moves gently on a balance beam, as you would know from an acoustic grand piano. Thanks to the long keys (especially the length from the front edge of the key to the balance bar pin), playing in the back area of the keys is made easier. The Grand Feel Compact keyboard mechanism has graduated weighted hammers, counterweights in the bass range and a pressure point simulation. In addition, the 3-way sensor system ensures optimal repetition and game control.
IMPRESSIVE RECORDINGS OF THE CONCERT GRAND PIANOS SHIGERU KAWAI EX AND KAWAI EX WITH 88 KEY SAMPLING
The CA49 digital piano reproduces the excellent sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano. The world-renowned Shigeru Kawai models are valued for their tonal clarity and can be found time and again on the stages of concert halls and music institutions. The CA49 digital piano also includes the special sound of the Kawai EX concert grand piano, which - along with other grand pianos - is often selected internationally by professional pianists for events such as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky or Rubinstein piano competitions.
All 88 keys of these two extraordinary grand piano models have been painstakingly recorded and analyzed. The unique characteristics of each individual note and the large dynamic range of the sounds enable the pianist to express his emotional playing ... from soft pianissimo to powerful fortissimo.
EASY TO USE OLED DISPLAY
The very easy-to-read OLED display simplifies operation very much. All functions can be accessed via the redesigned control panel and the OLED display. It is not necessary to use the keyboard.
The powerful lesson function in the CA49 supports the upcoming pianist in learning to play the piano through an integrated collection for piano lessons of typical etudes by Czerny, Burgmüller or Beyer as well as the well-known Alfred Piano courses. Each exercise title can be played at a variable speed and individually played back by the left or right hand before it is recorded together with your own game for self-control. There is also a four-hand mode that enables teacher and student to play at the same time with the same octave position.
An intuitive recording function can be found in all models of the CA series. The recorder in the CA49 has a maximum recording capacity of approx. 10,000 notes. Up to 3 songs can be recorded.
SHS HEADPHONE SYSTEM
Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) is a special equipment feature of the new CA49, which gives the sound image of the acoustic piano sound over headphones more spatial depth and also improves the listening experience over a longer period of time.
SOUND SYSTEM WITH PREMIUM ONKYO TECHNOLOGY
By using ONKYO Premium Audio Technology, the sound system of the CA49 is even clearer and more powerful than its predecessor. Distortion-free signal paths with maximum dynamics offer high resolution and pure sound.
In addition to the USB-to-host connection and the MIDI connections, the CA49 is also equipped with Bluetooth MIDI technology, which enables wireless communication with smart devices (e.g. smartphone or tablet). This gives you the opportunity to comfortably use a large selection of music-related apps in connection with your CA49 digital piano.
ADJUSTABLE MUSIC STAND
The inclination of the music stand can be changed - as with a concert grand - to adapt it to the player's position. If necessary, the CA series music stand can also be placed completely horizontally.
GRAND FEEL PEDAL SYSTEM
The CA49 is equipped with the Grand Feel Pedal System . With this system developed by Kawai, the resistance when pressing the three pedals (Sustain, Soft and Sostenuto) corresponds to the pedal feel of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand. The correct positioning of the pedals was also ensured.
