Kawai to preview new AURES hybrid upright piano at Musikmesse 2018

Kawai AURES hybrid upright piano - Musikmesse 2018 Preview

Kawai is proud to announce that a new hybrid upright piano instrument, named AURES, will be previewed to the public at the Musikmesse exhibition held in Frankfurt, Germany from 11th~14th April.

AURES – blending AUDIO and RESONANCE – instruments are equipped with a newly developed resonance system that allows the soundboard of a Kawai K series upright piano to also deliver digital audio, such as commercially available music, or the sound of other musical instruments, without the aid of additional speakers.

The AURES’ unique soundboard technology has been developed in collaboration with Japan’s leading premium audio manufacturer, Onkyo, and incorporates newly-designed high performance transducer components that transmit energy more efficiently than conventional parts.  The resulting sound produced entirely by the soundboard is rich, powerful, and expansive, and enhanced by the unique harmonic properties of solid spruce wood.

In addition to previewing AURES, Kawai will also exhibit a selection of professional acoustic grand and upright pianos, the NOVUS NV10 hybrid digital piano, and a full range of digital instruments including the latest Concert Artist series and MP stage pianos.

Musikmesse visitors can experience the AURES in person at a special exhibit in Hall 11.0 booth A88 from 11th~14th April.
