The CN17 is the latest stand model of Kawai's highly regarded digital pianos and already features many equipment features of the Premium models at an attractive price. The new Responsive Hammer Compact II (RHC II) keyboard was developed to authentically reproduce the fine, natural touch of a wing. The keyboard is graduated with weights (as with an acoustic piano, the touch of the keys in the bass is slightly heavier than in the discant) and the surface of all 88 keys is slightly matted, which allows better control over play. As with all other keyboard mechanisms of the Kawai digital pianos, the Responsive Hammer Compact II keyboard is also equipped with a 3-sensor system, where the strength of the touch is calculated by the movement of the hammers and therefore the pianist has a very natural playing sense The RHC II keyboard mechanism also gives experienced pianists the opportunity to express their emotional playing ... from the soft pianissimo to the powerful fortissimo. The CN17 reproduces the special sound of the hand-crafted and world-famous KAWAI concert grand piano. All 88 tests of this extraordinary instrument were recorded and analysed. When playing on the new CN model, the images - by harmonic imaging technology - are reproduced naturally. This unique process enables the realization of the great dynamics of the acoustic original instrument and also serves as a source for a choice of further high-quality sounds.
