Kawai Novus NV5

As the latest addition to Kawai’s premium NOVUS range of hybrid instruments, the NV5 utilises the same Millennium III keyboard action as that of Kawai’s highly-regarded ‘K’ series professional upright pianos, with high-precision optical sensors detecting the movement of each hybrid hammer.


Action: Millennium III Upright Hybrid
Speaker System: TwinDrive soundboard technology with six premium Onkyo speaker drivers


The NV5 includes a real acoustic piano damper mechanism, preserving the important physical connection between the keyboard and pedals to ensure the most authentic playing experience possible.

The NV5 has also been developed in collaboration with premium audio specialists, Onkyo, with a powerful amplification and delivery system that incorporates Kawai’s unique TwinDrive soundboard technology, reproducing the incredible sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano.

The modern NV5 supports both Bluetooth® MIDI and audio connectivity, and boasts a variety of convenient features, easily accessible from the large LCD touchscreen display embedded within the instrument’s left cheek block. Its ultra-compact cabinet occupies a depth of just 46cm – far smaller than that of a conventional upright piano, while the contemporary design and immaculate ebony polish finish guarantee that this stunning instrument will become the centrepiece of any room it occupies.

Control of the NV5’s settings is accessed through a discrete touchscreen interface in the bass cheek block, shared with the new ATX3 and AURES pianos. The flexible USB recording functions embrace MP3 and WAV file formats – the former for smaller, easy-to-share files, and the latter for larger files offering the very best quality.
