Kawai Novus NV5S Hybrid Digital Upright Piano


The Kawai NV5S hybrid delivers the touch of a world-class upright piano through its Millennium III Hybrid upright piano action with a real damper mechanism, which authentically replicates the natural motion and feel of an acoustic piano. A modern touchscreen LCD display, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity create a cutting-edge playing experience. With impressive sounds powered by Onkyo transducers – including the renowned Shigeru Kawai SK-EX Concert Grand Piano – the NV5S hybrid sets a high standard for competitive hybrid digital piano technology.

The Novus NV5S incorporates Kawai’s industry-leading acoustic upright piano keyboard action technology, renowned for its extended spruce key sticks, and innovative ABS Carbon components that are stronger, lighter, faster, and more dimensionally stable than conventional wooden parts.

The specially adapted Millennium III Hybrid keyboard action utilized by the NV5S replaces traditional felt hammers with new ABS equivalents that are individually graded in weight from bass to treble. High-precision optical sensors take the place of metal strings, precisely reading the subtle movements of each hammer as the corresponding keys are played.

Found on Kawai’s CA99 and NV5S Hybrid instruments, our unique Soundboard Speaker System embraces the resonant qualities of wood as it channels sound energy onto a real wooden soundboard to produce natural, organic tone.

The long wooden ribs attached to the soundboard broaden the instrument’s frequency range and volume, resulting in a remarkably authentic playing experience that faithfully reproduces the tonal ambiance of an acoustic piano.
