The Kawai K-500 AURES2 upright piano is the most recent and advanced addition to Kawai’s leading line of hybrid instruments. The Kawai K-500 AURES is identical to the Kawai K-500 upright piano but also boasts the new built-in AURES hybrid technology, making it the finest hybrid upright piano on the market.

AURES2 stands for the blending of audio and resonance and Kawai have ensured this instrument delivers high-quality audio without adding external speakers via their resonance system which uses the soundboard of the Kawai Upright piano.

Part of the Kawai “AnyTimeX3 Pianos,” the Kawai K-500 AURES2 is in the hybrid acoustic piano range that can be played anywhere, at any time, without disturbing anyone!

Kawai have developed the K-500 AURES2 by combining operational technology and award-winning craftmanship with the class-leading K-500 upright piano. The AURES2 offers soundboard technology specifically developed to incorporate high performance transducer components that are more efficient at transmitting energy than more traditional parts. The Kawai K-500 AURES2 produces an incredibly rich and powerful sound which is achieved and enhanced by the use of a solid spruce soundboard.

This instrument allows full digital flexibility by incorporating both the elements of a powerful digital audio component with an acoustic muting feature which enables the feeling of playing a traditional piano whilst playing silently, in privacy, with the newly developed Kawai SH-9 headphones that are matched to the internal sound source of the piano.

The Kawai K-500 AURES2 offers the pianist endless versatility to explore their musical ideas due to its large range of digital piano voices and other orchestral and instrumental sounds.

Featuring advanced digital technology and the revolutionary Millennium III upright action that has been developed to enhance the pianists speed, power and control, the Kawai K-500 AURES2 can be heard through the built-in speakers, attached to the soundboard.

The Millennium III keyboard action incorporates the latest materials combining ABS Carbon materials. The ABS-Carbon compound is incredibly rigid and lightweight and ensures the keyboard action has increased durability, improved control and responsiveness and is less prone to degradation over time.

This model boasts an integrated lesson function and offers full digital convenience due to its full-colour 5” touchscreen that enables settings and sounds to be selected simply through the swipe or tap of a finger. This instrument is part of the range that has been able to successfully integrate sensors within the working of the piano action. The result? It reads the exact movements of each hammer.

Further features of this model include Harmonic Imaging XL technology, integrated Bluetooth MIDI and audio technology (which allows it to communicate with suitable smart devices wirelessly).

Part of the AnyTimeX3 instruments, the Kawai K-500 AURES2 delivers tonal clarity and offers an unrivalled dynamic range. This hybrid model offers the excellence of the Kawai K-500 upright with the enhanced ability of boasting the technology of the Kawai’s CA digital pianos. This unique technology creates a vibrant, lively sound using the natural wood material of the piano. The digital piano sound engine can be mixed with the traditional sound of the acoustic piano to create sound layers never heard before from an acoustic instrument.

The Kawai K-500 AURES2 has been billed as the perfect blend of craftsmanship and technology, resulting in it being the finest hybrid upright piano on the market.

Upstairs delivery:

In the event that your new piano needs to be delivered upstairs we would require pictures and measurements to be emailed into our sales team ([email protected]). We would then calculate an upstairs delivery quotation for you. In some local cases we may request to come and view the access to make sure the piano will fit round tight corners in a staircase.

Home assembly required:

If you have purchased an instrument from our digital piano range and not selected the ‘Premium Delivery Service’ then the instrument will be arriving in a flatpack box and will require self-assembly.

The assembly of most digital pianos will take you around a minimum of 1 hour. We strongly recommend that you have two people present during the assembly. Instructions of assembly will be located inside flatpack box.

Here at Broughton Pianos every instrument is checked by our fully qualified piano technicians before leaving for delivery, this ensures all of customers are 100% satisfied. In the unlikely event of an item being faulty or not suiting the acoustics of room its being kept in we will assess the situation in a neutral manner and reach an agreement to suit all. Broughton Pianos does not accept any returns for unfaulty goods after the statutory period. We use the discretion of our professional piano technicians to determine if an instrument is faulty. If a change of mind occurs we do our best to find an alternative instrument.
