Kawai CA701R Premier digital Piano
Welcome to the KAWAI Concert Artist digital piano series.
Let yourself be convinced by its sound, the great design and the many possibilities.
GRAND FEEL III KEYBOARD WITH REAL WOODEN KEYS, PRESSURE POINT SIMULATION AND EBONY & IVORY TOUCH SURFACES
The CA701 is equipped with the Grand Feel III mechanism with wooden keys, which provides an exceptionally realistic playing feel. The key length of the Grand Feel III keyboard (from the front edge of the key to the balance bar pin) is longer than any other digital piano keyboard. All eighty-eight black and white keys are made entirely of long wooden pieces. Like a grand piano, each key moves gently on a balance beam. When you press a key, a weighted hammer is moved upwards, just like the original. In addition, the triple sensor system ensures optimal repetition and game control.
The graduated weighted hammers create a real wing feeling. In addition, weights are incorporated into the front area of each key on the Grand Feel III keyboard, so that an even better balance between pronounced fortissimo and yet low-fatigue playing with perfect control in pianissimo is possible. In addition, the Grand Feel III keyboard is equipped with a pressure point simulation, which ensures perfect control when playing pianissimo.
All 88 keys of the Grand Feel III keyboard are equipped with ivory-like coverings (Ebony & Ivory Touch), which provide the player with greater security and excellent game control thanks to a non-slip surface.
SHIGERU KAWAI SK-EX COMPETITION GRAND AND SK-EX CONCERT GRAND CONCERT GRAND PIANOS, REPRODUCED WITH THE LATEST SK-EX RENDERING SOUND TECHNOLOGY
The beautiful sound of the Kawai SK-EX concert grand is the heart of the new CA701.
You can now find it in two versions. As with the previous model as SK-EX Concert Grand and now also as SK-EX COMPETITION GRAND.
The new SK-EX COMPETITION GRAND sound was newly and elaborately sampled from a latest generation SK-EX concert grand piano selected for international competitions.
The sound of this special grand piano was captured with all its nuances using multiple microphone positions and is characterized by an even stronger tone and greater dynamics. The subsequent mix of the different microphone positions was aimed at the player's position, in contrast to the SK-EX Concert Grand, which sounds more like from the listener's position.
In order to be able to reproduce the impressive sound of the Shigeru grand pianos as realistically as possible, Kawai has further developed the SK-EX rendering sound generation, which is characterized by high-resolution multi-channel sampling of all 88 keys in combination with the latest resonance modeling technology. Multi-channel sampling includes the sound recorded from multiple positions of the Shigeru Kawai concert grand piano, which can reproduce a wider range of sound characteristics, enabling more vivid authentic sound changes during dynamic playing. This natural and expressive sound is further enriched through the use of physical modeling with newly developed resonance algorithms. The complex overall sound that flows through the strings,
6 SPEAKERS WITH 360° DIFFUSERS
In addition to Hi-End Audio signal routing, digital 110 watt power amplifiers and a high-quality headphone amplifier, the CA701 is equipped with 6 speakers and 360 degree diffusers for the upward-facing speakers. These specially designed components create a sound experience that distributes natural sound throughout the room, allowing listeners to hear just like the player without sacrificing quality.
ALTERNATIVE ACOUSTIC PIANO SOUNDS AND A WIDE SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL SOUNDS
In addition to the new SK-EX rendering sound generation, the CA701 is also equipped with the popular Harmonic Imaging XL technology. This includes alternative acoustic piano sounds and a large selection of additional sounds. For example, you can also find the special sound of the Kawai EX concert grand piano. The sounds of the Shigeru Kawai medium grand piano SK-5 and the acoustic Kawai piano K-60 give the player the opportunity to get to know the different sound characteristics of different grand piano sizes or an acoustic piano.
In addition to the acoustic piano sounds, the CA701 has an extensive selection of other new sounds, such as electric pianos, drawbar or church organ, string or choir sounds, which enable the musician to play a wide variety of genres in a very varied way. The dual mode allows two different sounds (e.g. grand piano and strings) to be played on top of each other on the keyboard at the same time, while the split or four-hand mode allows the keyboard to be divided into a left and a right area.
CHANGE THE SOUND CHARACTER TO YOUR LIKING WITH THE VIRTUAL PIANO ARTISAN (VPA)
With the integrated Virtual Piano Artisan function in the CA701, the sound character of the selected acoustic piano, harpsichord or electric piano sound can be easily changed via the display. 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 and volume of individual tones and then save them to a favorite storage location.
The CA701 has a 5" touchscreen with a reflection-free anti-glare surface.
All functions are so easy to use. You can also control the CA701 via the PianoRemote app available for Android and iOS, which essentially reflects the internal system.
This Display can turn off completely when inactive, so you are even less distracted from the game.
In addition to the USB-to-host connection, the CA701 is also equipped with Bluetooth® MIDI 5.0 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 such as the Kawai PianoRemote app or the PiaBookPlayer app in conjunction with your CA701 digital piano.
Or simply use the Bluetooth® Audio 5.1 interface. Simply connect your smartphone to the CA701 and enjoy all your music directly through the CA701's speaker system. This is particularly recommended for play-alongs or for listening to instructional videos.
USB TO DEVICE FUNCTIONALITY WITH MP3/WAV RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
The CA701 is equipped with USB ports, which not only give you the opportunity to exchange MIDI data with a connected computer. For example, you can also save data directly to a USB storage medium. It is also possible to play songs from your favorite artists directly in MP3 or WAV format. You can also record your own performance in MP3 or WAV format and, for example, email it to your friends, listen to the songs on a smartphone or PC, or burn them to CD on your PC.
DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
The CA701 impresses not only with its many inner values. Its new modern design is also an eye-catcher.
High-quality components paired with a sophisticated appearance make the CA701 a highlight in any room.
Attention was also paid to better ergonomics. The position of the pedals is moved further back, which allows for better player ergonomics. Fold-out retaining pins are also integrated on the music stand to prevent the sheet music from slipping.
