2014 was a record setting year for Kawai, having received six major international product awards for our digital pianos. We started the year by receiving Music Inc. magazine’s “Best in Show” award for our CS10 Hybrid Digital Piano. The CS10 was one of only twenty products selected from the many thousands of instruments, accessories and software shown at the Winter NAMM trade show in January, 2014.
At that same trade show, our VPC1 Virtual Piano Controller received the Silver Prize from the RockoN magazine from Japan. Later in the year, our CN34 digital piano was named “Best Digital Piano under 1500 Euros” by Tastenwelt magazine, a German publication covering musical instruments.
At the conclusion of 2014 came three more awards for Kawai digitals. Music Inc. magazine gave our CN Series digitals their Product Excellence Award, based on input from dealers in North America. Musical Merchandise Review (MMR) magazine gave Kawai digitals two of their coveted Dealers’ Choice Awards. Our CN Series was named “2014 Home Keyboard Line of the Year” and our MP Series Stage Pianos were named “2014 Professional Digital Piano Line of the Year”.
Kawai’s focus is on building digital pianos with the finest tone and touch, and this is the reason for their unprecedented success in 2014. With superior keyboard actions, Harmonic Imaging sound technology, and the exclusive Soundboard Speaker System (CS10 only), Kawai has the most authentic sounding and feeling digital pianos in the industry.
