Description

The award-winning heritage of Kawai’s CN Series Digital Pianos embodies over 90 years of piano building excellence. The design of the CN39 captures the incredible piano tone of the famed Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert Grand Piano with stunning accuracy using Progressive Harmonic Imaging technology. Delivering authentic touch response, considered to be among the best available, is the Responsive Hammer III keyboard action. The CN39 features a powerful sound system with key components from premium audio equipment specialists Onkyo. Exceptional visual clarity of the control panel, nestled neatly to the left of the keyboard, is the result of the latest OLED display. Playback audio from mobile devices can connect through the CN39 sound system using the built-in Bluetooth™ feature, which also allows for wireless MIDI connection with other devices. With standard features like Grand Feel Pedal System, Spatial Headphone Sound selection, and USB capabilities, the CN39 is one of the most popular digital pianos available.

FEATURES

REPOSNIVE HAMMER III WEIGHTED-KEY ACTION

CN39 Touch

CN39 Touch

The CN39 digital piano’s Responsive Hammer III (RHIII) action recreates an acoustic grand piano’s distinctive touch, with its realistic movement and accurate 3-sensor technology providing a smooth, natural, and highly responsive piano playing experience. The weight of the keyboard is appropriately graded to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano, while structural reinforcements within the action assembly ensure greater stability during fortissimo and staccato passages. The CN39 digital piano also features Kawai’s Ivory Touch key surfaces that gently absorb finger moisture to assist the player’s performance, while, let-off simulation recreates the subtle ‘notch’ sensation felt when softly playing the keys of a grand piano, satisfying the expectations of the most discerning pianists.

SHIGERU KAWAI SK-EX AND KAWAI EX INSTRUMENT SOUNDS

The CN39 digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert grand piano. Widely regarded as the ‘premier pianos of Japan,’ Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity. The CN39 features the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which professional pianists have frequently selected in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others. Both instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analyzed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using Harmonic Imaging™ sound technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.

PREMIUM AUDIO TECHNOLOGIES

Superior Sound

Superior Sound

Unrivaled in its class, the CN39 features a premium speaker and audio system developed by audio equipment specialist Onkyo delivering improved tonal clarity and superior sound. Lower-range frequencies are delivered through the instrument’s underside, while mid and high frequencies are projected outward via top-mounted speakers, closely mirroring the sound projection characteristics of an acoustic piano.

RICH SOUND SELECTION

Complementing the CN39’s realistic acoustic piano voices, it features an excellent selection of additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs to strings, human choirs, and even atmospheric synth-style pads, inviting musicians to add greater variety to their performances. Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections. The volume balances for each playing mode can also be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.

VIRTUAL TECHNICIAN

Virtual Technician

Virtual Technician

The CN39 digital piano’s Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic piano, electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped at the touch of a button, with settings to adjust voicing and regulation, string, damper, and cabinet resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning and volume of individual notes before storing one’s personalized instrument configuration to memory.

FLEXIBLE USB CONNECTIVITY

The CN39 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that allow this instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use and load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This ‘USB to Device’ feature allows instrument settings or recorded songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware. USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece or to play along with their favorite songs. It is even possible to record performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family or further editing using an audio workstation.

SUPERIOR HEADPHONE EXPERIENCE

CN39 Headphone Experience

The CN39’s Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology enhances the depth and realism of the instrument’s sound when listening through headphones or earphones.
