VIRTUAL TECHNICIAN

The knowledge and skill of an experienced piano technician is essential to bring out the best of a fine acoustic piano. In addition to tuning, the technician also performs numerous regulation and voicing adjustments. The CA48’s Virtual Technician ‘Smart Mode’ simulates these refinements digitally, with ten preset configurations that intelligently adjust various characteristics of the grand piano to match different musical styles.

GRAND FEEL PEDAL SYSTEM

Grand Feel Pedal System
Grand Feel Pedal System

The CA48 features three pedals – soft, sostenuto, and damper (with half-damper capability). The new Grand Feel Pedal System accurately replicates the position and individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano to further enhance the CA48’s acoustic piano-like authenticity.

SUPERIOR HEADPHONE EXPERIENCE

The CA48’s Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology enhances the depth and realism of the instrument’s sound when listening through headphones or earphones. The player can select one of three different acoustic presets that adjust the spatial positioning of the sound, while also helping to reduce auditory fatigue when using earphones or headphones for extended periods of time.
