GRAND FEEL COMPACT MECHANISM WITH PRESSURE POINT AND WOODEN KEYBOARD WITH IVORY TOUCH SURFACE
Das Modell CA59 ist mit der neuen Grand Feel Compact Mechanik mit Holztasten ausgestattet, die - dank der 90-jährigen Erfahrung von Kawai im Klavierbau – ein außergewöhnlich realistisches Spielgefühl ermöglicht. Alle 88 Tasten sind komplett aus langen Holzteilen gefertigt, wobei die weißen Tasten - zur Optimierung der Spielkontrolle - mit Ivory Touch Belägen versehen sind.
Each of the 88 keys moves gently on a balance beam, as is known from an acoustic grand piano. Thanks to the long keys (especially the length from the front edge of the key to the balance pin), the game in the rear 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 triple sensor system ensures optimal repetition and game control.
IMPRESSIVE RECORDINGS OF THE SHIGERU KAWAI SK-EX AND KAWAI EX AND SK-5 CONCERT GRAND WITH HARMONIC IMAGING XL AND 88-KEY SAMPLING
The outstanding sounds of the Shigeru Kawai grand pianos SK-EX, Kawai EX and Shigeru Kawai SK-5 are reproduced in the CA59. The world-renowned Shigeru Kawai models are valued for their tonal clarity and can always be found on the stages of concert halls and music institutions. In addition, the CA59 also includes the special sound of the Kawai EX grand piano, which is often selected internationally by professional pianists for events such as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky or the Rubinstein piano competition. All 88 keys of these three extraordinary wing models were elaborately recorded and analyzed.
LARGE SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL SOUNDS
In addition to the realistic acoustic piano sounds, the CA59 has an extensive selection of other sounds, such as e-pianos, drawbar or church organ, string or choir sounds, which enable the musician to play a very varied range of different genres. The dual mode allows two different sounds (eg grand piano and strings) to be played simultaneously on the keyboard, while the split or four-hand mode allows the keyboard to be divided into a left and a right area. The respective volume ratio can be set quickly and easily at the touch of a button.
VIRTUAL TECHNICIAN SETTINGS
With the integrated Virtual Technician function, the sound character of the selected acoustic piano sound, harpsichord or electric piano sound can be changed easily. For example, you can adjust the intensity of the string, damper and housing resonances or the sound of the hammers falling back. You can even change the pitch, volume and intonation of individual tones and then save them.
PREMIUM ONKYO TECHNOLOGY
By using ONKYO Premium Audio Technology, the sound system of the CA59 is even clearer and more powerful than its predecessor. Distortion-free signal paths with maximum dynamics offer high resolution and pure sound.
SPEAKER SYSTEM AND SHS HEADPHONE SOUND
The outstanding sounds of the CA59 are reproduced via an amplifier system with 4 loudspeakers and 2 x 50 watts: 2 mid-high-range speakers emit upwards and below the gaming table 2 loudspeakers reproduce the bass for the bass and midrange. As a result, the radiation behavior of a wing is modeled as best as possible.
The CA59 offers various adjustment options for playing with headphones. The new "Spartial-Headphone-Sound" (SHS) technology enables more spacious listening via headphones, the high-quality headphone amplifier offers the highest sound quality and even the type of headphones used can be set to match the sound to open, half-open, closed or in-ear - adjust headphones. The result is a fatigue-free listening experience even over a longer period of time.
BLUETOOTH AUDIO / MIDI
In addition to the USB-to-host connection and the MIDI connections, the CA59 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 conveniently use a large selection of music-related apps in conjunction with your CA59 digital piano.
The CA59 also offers Bluetooth audio with aptX compatibility, so that you can play music from your smartphone wirelessly via the speakers of the CA59.
USB TO DEVICE FUNCTIONALITY WITH MP3 / WAV RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
The CA59 is equipped with USB ports that not only offer you the option of exchanging MIDI data with a connected computer. For example, you can also save data directly to a USB storage medium or load it directly into the instrument from a storage medium. This USB-to-device functionality enables the storage of registration places and songs (which have been saved in the internal memory of the CA59) on an external storage medium or MIDI files (SMF) stored on them can be played directly with the instrument without the need for additional hardware. You can also play songs from your favorite artists in MP3 or WAV format. You can also record your own game in MP3 or WAV format and email it to your friends, for example,
EXTENSIVE CONNECTION OPTIONS
A number of connection options ensure the greatest possible flexibility, such as audio outputs (LINE OUT) for connection to an amplifier for use in larger rooms (e.g. in churches or schools). The MIDI IN / OUT and USB to Host connections allow connection to computers or other MIDI devices. Thanks to the stereo audio input (LINE IN), the audio output of a laptop or tablet PC can be connected directly to the CA59 and played back via the built-in speakers.
ADJUSTABLE MUSIC STAND
The inclination of the music stand can be changed - as with a concert grand - to adapt it to the player position. If necessary, the music stand of the CA series can also be placed completely horizontally.
GRAND FEEL PEDAL SYSTEM
The CA59 is equipped with the Grand Feel Pedal System . In this system developed by Kawai, the resistance when operating the three pedals (Sustain, Soft and Sostenuto) corresponds to the pedal playing feel of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand. Attention was also paid to the correct positioning of the pedals.
