Kawai K-200 ATX2 45" Professional 'AnyTime' 'Hybrid' Upright Piano

Kawai K-200 ATX2 45" Professional 'AnyTime' 'Hybrid' Upright Piano

The Kawai K-200 ATX2 45" Acoustic 'AnyTime' Professional 'Hybrid' Upright Piano is a new breed of musical instrument created by the fusion of acoustic and digital elements - designed to enhance the enjoyment, flexibility and capabilities of the player.

The Kawai K-200 ATX2 45" Acoustic 'AnyTime' Professional 'Hybrid' Upright Piano begins with the traditional and renowned
Kawai K-200 45" Professional Upright Piano, a traditional Kawai stringed acoustic piano, in which the strings are struck by hammers, the strings vibrations transmit through a bridge to the wooden soundboard that amplifies the acoustic energy into the air, that has been the choice of discerning pianists for generations since 1927.

The traditional acoustic piano is then equipped with Kawai's Digital Technology
, to enable the piano to operate as a full featured digital piano.

This allows the piano to be played silently in the room, 'AnyTime' without disturbing anyone, while only the player can hear and listen, to the full rich digital piano sounds being created, using personal headphones.
In this 'AnyTime' mode, when the piano keys are struck and the piano is played, the piano hammers will no longer hit the strings and instead, a highly sophisticated sensor-technology captures all movements of the keys and sends them to the digital tone module.

When the ‘AnyTime’ silencing function has been engaged and piano keys are struck a hammer shank stopper rail is moved into place to prevent the hammers from striking the strings. While the piano is outwardly silenced by the acoustic muting feature, the movement of the keys and other performance information are picked up by action sensors and converted to digital data. Kawai’s digitally sampled acoustic sound of their finest concert grand or other Kawai model acoustic pianos sounds are then sent to stereo headphones for the player to enjoy in complete privacy.

Kawai’s highly acclaimed sound technology is called Harmonic Imaging™. Simply put, Harmonic Imaging is a blend of technology and techniques aimed at producing the most realistic recreation of our world famous Shigeru Kawai EXL 9-foot concert grand piano possible. In all Kawai's Unique Harmonic Imaging on the K-200 ATX2 provides 27 different sounds: 9 Pianos, 3 Electric Pianos, 2 Organs, and more.

The Pleasure of Sound ... the Comfort of Touch
Anytime Upright Pianos

At certain hours of the day, an acoustic piano might distract; when an infant is napping or the applied notes of children repeating their scales may conflict with the schedules of others who wish to watch television, or even the sweetest of Chopin's preludes may well concern neighbors, if played at an inconvenient time, possibly late at night.

Fortunately, the Kawai ATX2 instruments incorporate an acoustic mute function with powerful digital audio components, which allows pianists to continue to enjoy the exclusive sensations of a traditional piano, without disturbing the environment or other members of the family or neighbors, thanks to an individual headphone.

The Kawai ATX Hybrid Anytime X2 Upright Piano is actually Three Pianos in One:

(1) A Kawai Traditional Acoustic Upright Piano
(2) A Kawai Digital Upright Piano 
(3) A Kawai AnyTime™ Quiet Piano, which you may “play any hour of the day or night” without disturbing neighbors or anyone in the home.

Upright Piano with Silent System
(Demonstrating All AnytimeX2 Sounds/Voices)
In 'Acoustic' Mode

The piano can be played in traditional fashion with full-bodied tone filling the room.

In 'AnyTime' Mode

The hammers never touch the strings. When the piano keys are played, digital piano tones are heard through the headphones. Play the piano 'AnyTime' without anyone hearing your playing. Ideal for homes where playing the piano could disturb family or neighbors early in the morning, late at night, or when family members are watching TV, resting or young ones are napping.

ATX-SS, ATX2-f (K-300 ATX-SS Available)

Hybrid of traditional acoustic pianos and digital technology.
ATX-SS, ATX2-f allows digital features to be used without headphones, channeling sound energy back onto the piano’s wooden soundboard.

“AnyTime” ATX2-f functionality plus the 'Soundboard Speaker System' delivers an exceptional playing experience, enabling not only the realistic digital sound through an acoustic soundboard, but also the beautiful layered tone of digital sounds and full-bodied acoustic sounds played together.

Soundboard Speaker System

ATX-SS, ATX2-f models feature Kawai’s unique Soundboard Speaker System, allowing sounds produced by the instrument’s digital tone generator to be channeled onto the acoustic piano’s soundboard speaker and enjoyed without headphones. 

Channeling the digital piano sounds onto the instrument’s large wooden soundboard produces a richer, more natural tone, while allowing the player to enjoy a three dimensional ambiance that cannot be achieved with conventional speakers alone. The volume level of the Soundboard Speaker System can be easily adjusted so as to minimize disturbances to others.  This allows individuals who experience discomfort when wearing headphones for extended periods of time to practice the piano freely, while still playing on an acoustic piano keyboard action.    

It is even possible to play the instrument’s rich acoustic piano tone and high quality digital sounds simultaneously, allowing players to enjoy a broad selection of interesting tonal combinations that inspire their musical creativity.

Powerful Performer, Superb Touch, Exceptional Tone

The K-200 model offer the same attention to detail and quality found in Kawai’s larger pianos, but in a 45" height size to fit any room. The action design and components are comparable to those of the K-400 to K-800 Series pianos to provide outstanding touch and playability. With their resonant tone and classic good looks, the K-200 will be an impressive addition to any home or studio.

The Kawai K-200 45" Professional Upright Piano provides maximum performance with a minimum footprint. With features normally found in larger uprights, it is a powerful performer in a medium-scale instrument. The K-200 provides the full-bodied tone of a classic upright in a flexible size to adapt to virtually any home or studio environment.

The K-200 45” proudly encompasses a distinguished legacy. Since its introduction, the K-200 has been a professional piano of unique stature. Kawai master craftsmen designed it to exceed the strictest standards of superb touch, exceptional tone and proven dependability, a professional piano for home, studios, churches and schools. The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM)  ‘Acoustic Piano of The Year’ award has been received by Kawai for numerous consecutive years for the Kawai K Series Professional Upright Piano for its Outstanding Musical Excellence.

Combining modern material science with innovative new design concepts, Kawai has developed an action with a feel and consistency that is unmatched. We cordially invite you to experience the preeminent piano action of the third millennium

"Soft Fall" Fallboard

Kawai’s "Soft Fall" Fallboard closing system protects hands, fingers and the pianos finish from the harm that a jarring close may cause.

The Elements of Innovative Design

Soundboard Design

Kawai K-200 ATX2 'Anytime' Hybrid Technology

Acoustic Tranquility

The sound of hammers striking strings, resonating through solid spruce. Warm vibrations that illuminate a room, leaving its audience enchanted. The natural voice of an acoustic piano is truly unmistakable.

A fine piano entices musicians to perform with spontaneity and passion, yet such unbridled expressiveness may not always be appropriate. Indeed, in certain environments, an acoustic piano can prove disruptive; the diligent tones of children practicing scales are unlikely to be welcomed by other family members wishing to watch television, while even the most gentle, soothing Chopin preludes have the potential to irritate neighbors if performed after an acceptable time.

Fortunately, AnyTimeX2 instruments incorporate an acoustic muting feature with powerful digital audio components, allowing pianists to continue enjoying the distinctive feeling of a traditional piano, while listening discreetly using private headphones. Exceptional touch, optimum responsiveness, digital flexibility: The new range of AnyTimeX2 hybrid pianos from KAWAI.


In 1971 KAWAI revolutionized piano technology by introducing ABS action parts within the fine workings of the piano action. This rigid, atmospherically stable compound material, addressed many of the problems associated with wooden components, such as breakages under continual high stress, and shrinking and swelling due to changes in climate. The introduction of ABS action parts proved a significant development in modern piano design, and rapidly earned high praise from pianists and technicians worldwide. The Millennium III Upright Action, unveiled in 2006, has been developed to enhance the three performance elements that professional pianists most desire - speed, control and power. The introduction of stronger ABS Carbon materials has allowed KAWAI scientists to develop lighter action parts without sacrificing durability, further optimizing key repetition and response speed for a truly unparalleled playing experience.


With the acoustic components muted, KAWAI AnyTimeX2 pianos employ a unique digital technology, developed and refined at the Shigeru Kawai Research & Development Laboratory in Ryuyo, Japan, calling upon the finest hand-crafted KAWAI EX Concert Grand piano to deliver an unmistakably warm, authentic tone. Placed inside a purpose-built anechoic chamber, free of audio reflections, the rich sound of this world class instrument is meticulously analyzed and recorded by our Master Piano Artisan pioneers. The acoustic portrait of each note is later transformed into a highly precise three dimensional digital representation, employing KAWAI's proprietary Harmonic Imaging™ technology. This unique process faithfully reproduces the broad dynamic range of the original grand piano, while also providing the source for a rich selection of additional high-quality instrument sounds.

IHSS Sensor System

A fine acoustic piano entices musicians to perform with enthusiasm, spontaneity and passion. Yet, the satisfaction that one enjoys when hammers strike the strings is often diluted by traditional piano silencing techniques. Sensors located below the keyboard struggle to accurately interpret the subtleties of musical expression, which is why AnyTimeX2 pianos integrate sensors within the fine workings of the piano action, reading the precise movements of each hammer. Whether performing rapid passages that demand the same key be played repeatedly before returning to its natural starting position, or pianissimo pieces desiring the very softest of key strokes, the Integrated Hammer Sensing System (IHSS) represents the elaborate nuances of every note. Pianists can finally enjoy the convenience of absolute privacy, without sacrificing the responsive touch and authentic expression of a traditional acoustic piano.

Digital Convenience

The AnyTimeX2 control box is placed below the keybed. In addition, the AnyTimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models feature an innovative slide-out control panel, with a gentle push revealing an LCD display and array of function buttons. Digital operation greatly extends the capabilities of the AnyTimeX2 piano beyond that of a traditional acoustic instrument, with convenient transpose and tuning facilities, a metronome and song recorder (except K-15 ATX2-p), and a selection of high fidelity sounds suitable for various musical occasions. Dual headphone sockets provide greater flexibility for academic institutions, while other connectors allow a range of creative music-making opportunities.

Harmonic Imaging XL (HI-XL)

With expanded piano sound memory, the new AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models boasts the largest sample size of any Kawai digital piano. This ‘eXtra Long’ standard of Harmonic Imaging technology extends the important attack portion of the piano sound by up to 120%, articulating the natural detail and resonance characteristics of each note more clearly, and improving the instrument’s organic tonal quality overall. When playing a fine piano, the amount of pressure applied to the keyboard affects not only the volume of the sound produced, but also the unique tonal character of each note. Therefore, in order to construct a realistic acoustic portrait of the EX concert grand piano, not only is each key recorded individually, but also at various different volume levels, ranging from gentle pianissimo to thunderous fortissimo.

AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models offer a highly detailed acoustic portrait, with Harmonic Imaging XL technology ensuring smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range.

88-key Piano Sampling

The beautiful sound of the Kawai EX concert grand piano is at the heart of the new AnytimeX2 series, with all eighty-eight keys of this world-class instrument painstakingly recorded, meticulously analyzed, and accurately reproduced as high-fidelity digital waveforms.

Recording each key individually in this way – as opposed to stretching the same tone over several different notes – preserves the rich harmonic character of the EX concert grand piano, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any key is a faithful representation of the original acoustic source.

Acoustic Piano variety

The AnytimeX2 models showcase a variety of grand piano sounds that are suitable for a wide range of musical periods and styles. In addition, a traditional Kawai upright piano sound is also included for pieces that suggest a feeling of nostalgia, or call for a slightly more intimate tonal character (except K-15 ATX2-p).

An experienced piano technician is essential to fully realize the potential of an acoustic piano. As well as meticulously tuning each note, the technician performs regulation and voicing adjustments that allow a fine instrument to truly sing. The Virtual Technician function in the new AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models simulate such refinements digitally. Players can perform touch and voicing adjustments, regulate hammer and key release noises, and fine-tune string, lid, and damper resonances. It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning and volume of individual notes – all in real-time.

The Variety of a Digital Piano

Supplementing the beautiful acoustic piano voices, the AnytimeX2 models also feature an excellent selection of additional sounds, ranging from electric piano and drawbar or church organ, to strings, and other instruments, inviting musicians to add variety to their performances.

The AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models feature several keyboard modes. The Dual playing mode allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections. The volume balances and can be adjusted quickly and easily.

Redeveloped Effects & Reverb

The AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models powerful new digital effects engine further enhances the instrument’s superior core sounds, applying additional layers of detail and realism that bring performances to life.

Studio quality chorus, tremolo, delay, and auto-pan effects can be used to tailor a sound’s character and feeling, with modelled amplifier/speaker simulations applying vintage warmth to electric pianos and trademark growl to drawbar organs.

The depth of a performance can then be transformed using the updated reverb features, allowing pianists to position themselves within one of six acoustic environments, ranging from a small practice room to an inspirational grand cathedral.

Flexible USB/MIDI Connectivity

The AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models are equipped with MIDI connectors that allow the instrument to be connected to a computer or MIDI-instruments for MIDI use.

The USB to Device functionality (except K-15 ATX2-p) allows favorite instrument settings, and memorable recorder songs stored in internal memory to be safely preserved on USB, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be listened to using the instrument’s exquisite Harmonic Imaging XL sounds without additional hardware.

MP3 Audio Playback & Record

USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files (except K-15 ATX2-p), allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favorite songs. It is even possible to record entire performances (including external line-in audio*) directly as MP3 or WAV audio files for emailing to family and friends, or casual listening away from the piano.

Useful Connectivity Options

In addition to the USB to Device connector, the AnytimeX2 and AnyTimeX2-f models also feature standard LINE-level audio and MIDI jacks. These useful connectivity options allow the instrument to be enjoyed in larger settings such as churches or school halls, and provide greater flexibility when using computers and other audio devices.

Integrated Lesson Function

The convenient lesson function (except K-15 ATX2-p) allows aspiring pianists to learn piano with classical Czerny, Burgmüller, Beyer and Bach etudes. With a strong emphasis on acoustic piano realism, both models also feature traditional finger exercises, scales, and warm-up drills, and include a companion book of printed scores to further aid one’s practice.

Energy Conservation

The AnytimeX2 models are equipped with a power saving feature which turns off the piano automatically after a specified period of inactivity.
One of the most coveted attributes of a fine piano is dynamic range – the ability to play not only thundering fortissimos, but also the most delicate and sensitive pianissimos. The technological superiority of the Millennium III Action is most evident in its extraordinary ability to produce the perfect pianissimo. It seems ironic that the K-200 technology speaks loudest when it whispers.

In the Shigeru Kawai Research and Development Laboratory in Japan, the Shigeru Kawai renowned Master Piano Artisans patiently craft one of the world’s finest musical instruments scale design—the K-200 Professional Upright Piano. Combining time-tested methods of origin with today's most sophisticated piano design tools each K-200 Professional Upright Piano is conceived as a “next step” in the evolving art of the piano.

A limited number are crafted each year for all the world. But to truly understand the K-200 is to play it. Only then, in its transcendent tone and incomparable touch, will you fully sense the passion, the devotion... the tradition and innovative spirit of Kawai.

Purity of Tone that Fills the Room... In order to produce Kawai’s special tone, a broad range of woods are meticulously analyzed for quality and character, before being selected as the finest materials for each specific purpose. The soundboard has arguably the most significant influence over a piano’s individual tonal elements. Therefore, woods that conform to the most rigorous gravity and propagation velocity standards are carefully selected by experienced Kawai Artisan Craftsmen in order to achieve rich, deep bass tones, and bright, colorful, sustaining treble tones.

The synergy of the selection of the finest structurally divergent hardwoods produces a powerful, well-rounded richness of extraordinary tone that is the hallmark of the K-200 Piano. This focus creates an incredibly strong “core” foundation that maximizes the reflective capabilities of the inner rim for outstanding tonal power and sustain. Select precision permanently crowned soundboards made of only straight-grained, quarter-sawn solid spruce, with bridges made of solid maple, are carefully set and matched to the iron plate for correct string pressure and optimal enhanced energy transfer, which empowers the K-200 with exceptional energy transmission and tonal projection for life, breadth, and depth of extraordinary tone that lasts from generation to generation.

Touch Texture. Responsive Fast Action.
Beautiful Quality of ‘Singing Strings’. Brilliant Rich Harmonics and Depth.


Playing the piano is as much an experience of "touch" as it is of tone. Day after day, the musician's hands come in contact with the piano keys. The piano's responsiveness can make a critical difference that can affect the player's performance, confidence and overall playing enjoyment. Consistent, ultra-responsive touch is a Kawai tradition.


The extraordinary combination of strength and stability allows the K-200 piano action to transfer energy to the underfelted hammers with unparalleled efficiency, power, precision and nuance for a superb playing experience, leaving more energy in the strings for increased tone production that will last over time better than any other piano.

A Rare Treasure… A limited number of all Kawai instruments will ever bear the name K-200. The rigorous degree of handwork and use of specially chosen materials keeps these instruments rare in both character and quantity. Each K-200 piano is a limited edition treasure numbered by year of creation.
