In 2016, Kawai showed the CS-X1 prototype of their collaboration with Japanese audio gurus Onkyo at Frankfurt Musikmesse. At the 2017 show, it was the turn of the Novus NV10 in pre-production form, and it drew huge levels of attention as a preview of what could be achieved by two long-established companies, both specialists in their fields. Now, the finished NV10 is already in huge demand, and has been nominated for awards in the American MMR magazine.

The NV10 is one of the first instruments to use Kawai’s new SK-EX Rendering piano sound engine to produce an ultra-realistic and responsive Shigeru Kawai concert grand piano sound. Onkyo’s sophisticated DIDRC technology filters the sound to remove the high frequency noise usually associated with digital audio. The new Millennium III Hybrid action, based on the action found in the GX-Series acoustic grand pianos, offers the player maximum control of the tonal and dynamic colours available, making the Kawai NV10 a truly satisfying instrument to play. This control extends to the pedals, including a brand new Grand Piano damper lift that perfectly replicates the feel of the sustain pedal on an acoustic instrument.
