Harmonic Imaging Technology
The authentic piano sound of Kawai digital pianos starts with the world's finest concert grand piano, the Kawai EX. We recorded the exceptionally rich sound in the "anechoic chamber" at our advanced piano research facility. Our engineers then analysed the unique harmonic structure of the EX and created an extremely accurate sound map for each key across the entire dynamic range. Finally, our engineers and piano technicians worked together to reproduce the excellent sound of the EX concert grand piano. The sound data was digitally tuned and voiced by the ears of our proud piano craftsman. The result is a new level of authenticity in the art of digital piano.

AWA Grand PRO Action
As one of the world's premier builders of acoustic pianos, Kawai has long understood the vital importance of "feel" to the pianist. For this reason, Kawai has been a pioneer in the use of real wooden keys in our digital pianos. The CP136 features our AWA Grand PRO action. As an acoustic piano has heavier hammers in the bass section and lighter hammers in the treble section, AWA Grand PRO uses different hammer weights appropriate for each playing zone. In addition, the lower keys have counter weights for better control when playing softly. AWA Grand PRO is designed to faithfully simulate the grand piano action. The long wooden key stick is supported by a balance pin with a bushing cloth. The front bottom of the key stick touches the front felt with its face. These structures are the same as the ones found in acoustic grand pianos. It's easy to forget that you are playing a digital piano with the excellence of the AWA Grand PRO action, with real wooden keys.
