Kawai Introduces New Designer Digitals
CS11 and CS8 Blend Technology and Tradition

(Rancho Dominguez, CA) – Kawai America announces the arrival of two new models in its award-winning Classic Series Digital Piano line. The top-of-the-line CS11 is Kawai’s newest Hybrid Digital Piano. With luxurious appearance, stunning sound and impeccable touch, the CS11 blurs the line between acoustic pianos and their digital counterparts, creating an instrument where outstanding digital performance merges with acoustic piano characteristics.

For starters, the CS11’s gorgeous cabinet is the very one used by the Kawai Professional Upright Pianos. Classic lines, traditional leg and toe block design, plus an authentic fallboard create a timeless, traditional appearance. Borrowing further from Kawai’s rich acoustic piano history, the CS11 employs the exclusive Soundboard Speaker System which uses a real wooden soundboard to create the warm, rich, organic sound of an acoustic instrument.

Yet more evidence of the CS11’s acoustic piano heritage is the Grand Feel II action, an action that features extra-long wooden keys and a mechanical design closely emulating that of Kawai’s grand piano actions. Additionally, the front key pivot length of the GF II action is precisely the same length as that of Kawai’s acclaimed RX grand piano’s keys, providing a greater amount of control and nuance to the player.

The CS11’s digital side is no less impressive. For tone, the CS11 relies upon Kawai’s signature Harmonic Imaging XL with 88-note piano sampling. Plus, the CS11 now features samples of the acclaimed Shigeru Kawai EX concert grand and the SK5 chamber grand pianos.Other powerful digital features include USB digital audio capabilities, USB data storage, 256-note polyphony, split and layered keyboard modes, and a large number of exceptional instrumental sounds. The finishing touch is

the unique Cheekblock Control System, which provides intuitive operation along with a large LCD display, all discreetly housed in the left check block of the instrument.

The new CS8 Digital Piano joins the CS11 as part of the Classic Series digital piano lineup. It offers all of the attributes of the CS11, except that it uses a traditional 4-speaker sound system rather than the Soundboard Speaker System. It is clad in a traditional digital piano cabinet with a polished ebony finish, making it a beautiful addition to any decor. The CS11 and CS8 are now available in the US and Canada.
