This updated model incorporates the new Grand Feel III wooden-key keyboard action, delivering a firmer, faster, and even more grand
piano-like touch feeling. The instrument’s improved SK-EX Rendering multi-channel sound engine features enhanced acoustic piano
samples, with new Virtual Technician parameters to precisely control the attack, release, and sustain characteristics of each piano.
The CA79 retains the high fidelity Onkyo audio processing, and powerful amplification of its predecessor, while also featuring improved
speaker units and new speaker diffuser panels. These specially developed components expand the piano’s tonal projection in all
directions, creating a 360° sound field that allows the CA79 to sound natural for listeners everywhere in the room.
The CA79’s cheekblock touchscreen display features a brand new user interface that is optimised for pianists, while providing easy
access to additional sounds and functions that inspire musical creativity. Kawai’s redesigned communication standard allows this
new user interface to also be accessed as an app for iOS and supported Android devices, with all settings and adjustments recalled
automatically every time the instrument is powered on. Complementing this modern connectivity, the CA79’s Bluetooth Audio
feature now supports the advanced aptX algorithm, allowing high quality audio to be streamed through the piano’s impressive
amplifier and speaker system wirelessly, with minimal latency. Finally, the CA79 possesses an updated cabinet design, with rounded
edge details and a taller body contributing to the instrument’s light and modern character.
