KAWAI CN 39 Black
The CN39 is the successor to the popular CN37 upper-mid-range digital piano. This updated model has been
developed in partnership with premium audio equipment manufacturer, Onkyo, and features a brand new
motherboard and speaker system designed by the company, to deliver richer, higher quality sound.
The CN39 retains the same cheekblock control panel as its predecessor, but features a modern OLED
graphic display for improved visibility. Complementing the Bluetooth® MIDI functionality introduced
on previous generation CN Series instruments, the CN39 also supports Bluetooth® Audio, allowing the
audio from a smartphone or tablet to be streamed through the piano’s speakers wirelessly. Finally,
the updated CN39 features new Shigeru Kawai SK-5 grand piano, electric piano, and electric grand sounds,
as well as improvements to existing grand piano and harpsichord sounds that provide a more natural and
realistic playing experience.
