Product Overview

The Kawai CA501 Digital Piano continues a legacy of authentic sound and premium features found in previous models. This updated model preserves the core Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action and acoustic piano sounds of both Shigeru Kawai and Kawai Concert Grand Pianos, featuring a new ‘competition grand’ sound which provides a more natural and dynamic playing experience. The CA501 incorporates a redesigned speaker system with 360° top speaker diffuser panels to distribute the sound more like an acoustic piano. Improved Bluetooth® MIDI v5 functionality is complemented by the addition of Bluetooth® Audio v5, providing high-quality wireless audio with minimal latency and enhanced audio quality. The CA501 possesses an updated cabinet design, adopting the taller body and rounded edge details of the larger Concert Artist models, for a more impressive, contemporary look. It also boasts a modernized OLED graphic display for easier visibility. The Kawai CA (Concert Artist) Series is one of the most award-winning lines of digital pianos in the world today, and the CA501 is a model that will delight players of all levels with an exceptional playing experience.
