Description

Kawai K-500 Aures Hybrid Piano

Practice time is now limitless with the introduction of the Kawai K-500 Aures, the premium model of the newest generation of Kawai’s AnyTime hybrid pianos.  The K-500 Aures is an acoustic piano with digital capabilities that allow players to practice silently.

The Kawai K-500 Aures Hybrid Piano combines two of Kawai’s flagship series into one.  The K-500 Aures is a fully acoustic K-500 Professional Upright, with built in digital technologies used in the highly acclaimed Concert Artists Digital Piano series.  When the K-500 Aures is switched to the digital piano function, the K-500 Aures utilizes the SK-EX Rendering Piano Sound Engine and the new Hybrid Sound Board amplification to digitally produce sound.  The sound is produced entirely by the wooden soundboard activated by Onkyo transducers, therefore creating a immersed, fuller tone quality.  This blurs the line between the K-500 Aures’ acoustic and digital sounds, because both emanate from the same soundboard.

Features

The K-500 Aures offers the signature AnyTime feature, acoustic muting.  The acoustic muting feature gives players the option to play through headphones, without compromising the touch of an acoustic keyboard.  Whether players live in environments that restrict piano practice to specific hours of the day, need a piano that shares the space with other media devices, or wish to practice privately without disturbing others, this feature is the practical solution for a multitude of scenarios pianist face. 

Found in Kawai’s premium digital pianos, a stunning 5″ LCD touchscreen display is discreetly nestled in the left cheekblock.  With an intuitive interface, players can engage themselves with a variety of other instrument presets, such as electric piano, strings, organ.  Lesson books, metronome and internal recorder are programmed as well, to aid players.

The K-500 Aures offers Bluetooth MIDI and Audio connectivity, allowing wireless connection between the piano and smart devices.  Kawai created a number of apps to enhance the digital piano experience, one of the most notable is the Virtual Technician.  The Virtual Technician which allows users to refine various parameters of their K-200 Aures to fit their musical needs and style in real time.  With equipped USB connectors, the K-500 Aures can connect to computers or USB memory devices.  Standard MIDI jacks are available for connecting to other instruments.
