The authentic feel of a concert grand is made possible by our industry-leading “Grand Feel II” wooden-key keyboard action that utilizes an ideal combination of materials, mechanics and motion to re-create the unrivaled touch and control of a fine grand piano. Audio from mobile devices can be played through the CA78 digital piano sound system with the built-in Bluetooth® Audio feature.
Direct USB and MIDI connectors expand capabilities for music making, while integrated Bluetooth® allows for wireless communication with other devices. Placed neatly in the keyboard side panel is the 5” color touchscreen that provides intuitive access to the CA78’s full range of features, controls and sound options. Try the CA Series, CA78 digital piano and see why it is described as a powerhouse of performance.
