The Kawai CA501 Digital Piano continues a legacy of authentic sound and premium features found in previous models. This updated model preserves the core Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action and acoustic piano sounds of both Shigeru Kawai and Kawai Concert Grand Pianos, featuring a new ‘competition grand’ sound which provides a more natural and dynamic playing experience. The CA501 incorporates a redesigned speaker system with 360° top speaker diffuser panels to distribute the sound more like an acoustic piano. Improved Bluetooth® MIDI v5 functionality is complemented by the addition of Bluetooth® Audio v5, providing high-quality wireless audio with minimal latency and enhanced audio quality. The CA501 possesses an updated cabinet design, adopting the taller body and rounded edge details of the larger Concert Artist models, for a more impressive, contemporary look. It also boasts a modernized OLED graphic display for easier visibility. The Kawai CA (Concert Artist) Series is one of the most award-winning lines of digital pianos in the world today, and the CA501 is a model that will delight players of all levels with an exceptional playing experience. Depth: 19" (48.5 cm) Width: 56" (142.5 cm) Height: 36.66" (93 cm) Weight: 145.5 lbs (66 kg) HIGHLIGHTS - NEW: ‘Competition Grand’ piano sample recorded from the player’s perspective. - NEW: Refined control panel with modern OLED graphic display. - NEW: Bluetooth Audio V5 for streaming music through the piano’s sound system. - NEW: Virtual Technician parameters, improved “Smart Mode” presets. - NEW: redesigned speaker configuration with 360° diffuser panels for improved sound distribution. - Improved: Updated cabinet design with the improved pedal position. The CA501 digital piano utilizes Kawai’s latest Grand Feel Compact keyboard action, which draws upon 90 years of acoustic piano craftsmanship to provide an exceptionally realistic playing experience. Unlike so many digital pianos that glue a thin wood veneer to the outside of a short plastic key, all 88 black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, with finely textured Ivory Touch key surfaces applied to provide unparalleled control and realistic feel to every key. As with an acoustic grand piano action, the keys pivot on a metal balance pin and move with a smooth seesaw-like motion, while the extended pivot length ensures a consistent, evenly-balanced touch weight – even when playing towards the back of the key. The Grand Feel Compact action also incorporates grade-weighted hammers, bass region counterweights, and let-off simulation for added authenticity, while its accurate triple-sensor key detection system allows rapidly repeated notes such as trills to be performed smoothly, without unnatural breaks in sound. The CA501 digital piano features the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, the incomparable SK-5 grand piano, and the exciting new Shigeru Kawai SK-EX ‘competition grand’ piano sample which was recorded from the pianist’s perspective. Widely regarded as the “premier pianos of Japan”, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity These remarkable instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analyzed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using Kawai’s proprietary Harmonic Imaging XL™ sound technology. This remarkable proprietary process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo, previously unheard-of in a digital piano in this range.
