All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

KAWAI CN-23

The compact CN23 features the latest Progressive Harmonic Imaging 88-key piano sampling technology, with 96 note polyphony and a variety of additional functions. This entry-level instrument utilises the new Responsive Hammer keyboard action, featuring KAWAI’s Ivory Touch key surfaces to absorb moisture and aid control.

With a traditional furniture design and attractive Premium Rosewood, Cherry, Mahogany, and Black Satin finishes complementing the exceptional touch and authentic tone of this charming instrument, the CN23 truly establishes a new standard in digital piano performance, quality, and value.

TOUCH

The new Responsive Hammer keyboard action has been developed to represent the distinctive touch of a traditional grand piano, with its remarkable springless design providing consistent upward and downward motion for a smooth, more natural, piano playing experience. This improved action also features KAWAI’s Ivory Touch key surface material, with the fine texture helping to absorbing moisture and aid control.

Moreover, just as acoustic pianos utilise heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers, the RH Action also employs different hammer weights, appropriately graded for each playing range. Such attention to detail allows greater stability during fortissimo passages, while preserving delicate pianissimo control, to satisfy the demands of even the most discerning pianist.

TONE

The new CN23 captures the beautiful sound of KAWAI’s highly acclaimed, hand-built concert grand piano, with all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed, and faithfully reproduced using the very latest Progressive Harmonic Imaging™ technology.

This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original piano, offering even greater tonal detail than the existing Harmonic Imaging™ standard, while also providing the source for a selection of additional high-quality instrument sounds. Finally, reverb and damper effects are applied, delivering rich tones with breathtaking realism and stunning authenticity.

FEATURES

The convenient lesson feature allows aspiring pianists to learn the piano using a built-in collection of etudes from Czerny, Burgmüller and Beyer, or songs from the popular Alfred Basic, Adult and Premier course books. The left and right hand parts of each piece can be practiced separately, adjusting the tempo to perfect difficult passages, before being recorded and played back for self-evaluation.

An intuitive recording function is also featured as standard across the CN Series range, with the CN23 capable of storing up to 3 recorder songs in memory.

In addition to these impressive internal features, considerable attention has also been paid to the external appearance of the CN23, with traditionally styled cabinet accents and beautiful Premium finishes combining to lend distinctive character to this exceptional instrument.
