Introducing the brand new Kawai K300 Aures hybrid upright piano. The Kawai K300 Aures piano is an identical instrument to the Kawai K300 premium acoustic upright piano but has the additional benefit of the built-in Aures Hybrid Technology.
What Does AURES Mean?
The name AURES stands for the blending of AUDIO and RESONANCE. Kawai Aures instruments are fitted with a cutting edge resonance system which uses the soundboard of the Kawai Upright piano to deliver high-quality audio without adding external speakers.
The K300 Aures plays and responds as a normal acoustic upright piano, but can be played 'silently' with headphones when you wish to practice without disturbing other people in the household. In addition to this, the Aures piano features the same advanced digital technology featured in Kawai's flagship digital pianos which offers a huge range of different digital piano voices, as well as numerous other instrument and orchestral sounds.
The 'digital' piano sound can also be heard through built-in transducer speakers which are attached to the piano soundboard. This unique technology creates a vibrant, lively sound using the natural wood material of the piano. The digital piano sound engine can be mixed with the traditional sound of the acoustic piano to create sound layers never before heard from an acoustic instrument.
To summarise, the K300 Aures piano can be played as a high-quality acoustic piano, a Kawai 'Anytime' piano for silent practice, or as a hybrid piano - mixing the best features of digital and acoustic instruments together to create completely new sounds!
Features Of The Kawai K300 Piano
The K300 features Kawai's exclusive Millennium II Upright Action. Components made from ABS-Carbon are used in the action, which are lighter than traditional piano action components, yet none of the strength is sacrificed. This results in a fast and powerful action, giving more control and stability than wooden piano actions. Great care and detail has gone into every aspect of the K300, including the finest quality T-stapled hammers, which preserve shape and generate exceptional tone with an added interior layer of underfelt.
