Suitable for the home, stage, recital hall, house of worship, or classroom, the snow white Kawai ES920 is a portable digital piano with authentic grand-piano touch and tone, realistic additional instrument sounds, a powerful, high-fidelity speaker system, and modern Bluetooth connectivity—all housed within a stylish, lightweight case.
The ES920 features 88 keys with Responsive Hammer III grade-weighted key action, Ivory Touch key surfaces, and let-off simulation, 256-note polyphony, Shigeru Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and EX grand piano sounds, and Harmonic Imaging piano sound technology, which provide a rewarding playing experience with expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo for pianists of all abilities. At just 37.5lb, this lightweight keyboard is the ideal traveling stage piano or practice instrument on the road, for advanced and professional pianists playing in a wide range of musical styles.
In addition to the 10 acoustic piano sounds, the ES920 offers additional sounds ranging from electric pianos, to drawbar and church organs, to strings, choirs, and bass, for a total of 38 sounds. These sounds are easily selectable from the pianos’ elegant control panel, which features an intuitive button layout and sharp OLED graphic display with 4-band EQ faders providing convenient real-time control during live performances.
The ES920 boasts a powerful 40W stereo speaker system that incorporates audio processing and amplification technologies developed in collaboration with renowned Japanese audio specialists, Onkyo. This unique hardware combination delivers well-rounded bass and crisp treble frequencies, reproducing the superb Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds with exceptional tonal clarity and richness.
An integrated Rhythm Section function with 100 styles and 2 variations per style, a selection of 4-part backing accompaniment styles, and 100 preset chord sequences invite players to add greater variety to their performances. The Dual playing mode allows two different sounds such as grand piano and strings to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections.
The ES920 features Metronome, Transpose, and Tune functions. An internal 2-track recorder offers a 10-song, 90,000-note capacity, which can be used as a learning tool to monitor your own performance. Onboard effects include 6 reverbs, chorus, delay, amp simulation, and more.
Built-in Bluetooth MIDI and Bluetooth audio connectivity allow apps such as Kawai’s dedicated PianoRemote control app or a wide range of third-party learning and recreation apps to be enjoyed wirelessly, or for music streamed from a smartphone or tablet to be played through the piano’s audio system without any additional cables. Wired connectivity is also supported with standard MIDI, USB, and line in/out, providing a range of options for studio and stage use.
When attached to the dedicated HM-5 designer stand and F-302 triple pedal bar (both available separately) in matching snow white finish, the ES920 is transformed into a stylish, ultracompact grand-piano replacement, great in a lounge, living room, office, or bedroom. An F-10H damper pedal is included.
