The Digital Grand from Kawai
The DG30 is the first model of Kawai’s new series of high specification Digital Grand instruments, delivering the touch, sound, and appearance of a grand piano at an affordable price.
The DG30’s attractive cabinet is finished from top to toe in Ebony Polish, with silver-chrome fittings completing a modern, elegant look.
Opening the instrument’s topboard reveals a polished wooden soundboard, decorated with traditional rim braid, and long and short lid props that allow for both fully- and partially-open topboard positions. Despite its grand appearance, the DG30 is a relatively compact instrument and occupies a depth of just 87 cm(34 1/4 inches), ensuring this handsomepiano can also be enjoyed in smaller rooms that may struggle to accommodate an acoustic grand piano. Inside the instrument, the DG30’s grand exterior is complemented by Kawai’s advanced digital piano keyboard and sound technologies.
The highly-authentic Responsive Hammer III keyboard action incorporates premium features such as graded hammers, counterweights, triple-sensor key detection, Ivory Touch key surfaces, and even let-off simulation. This exceptional keyboard action is paired with the impressive Progressive Harmonic Imaging sound engine, which reproduces the distinctive tonal character of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert and SK-5 chamber grand pianos, along with the Kawai EX, K-60, and a wide variety of other acoustic pianos and instruments sounds.
These stunning sounds are delivered through a powerful 4-speaker output system, featuring technologies developed in collaboration with premium Japanese audio specialists, Onkyo. The DG30 also incorporates Bluetooth technology, allowing the instrument’s functionality to be expanded with a wide variety of apps, or for audio stored on a smartphone or tablet to be played through the piano’s speakers wirelessly.
