The Compact Upright, CUP-2, the latest addition to Kurzweil’s growing family of home digital pianos, offers a contradiction that most players will surely welcome; a top of the line, powerful sound system in what seems to be an impossibly small, discreet enclosure.
Using the same chip technology as our acclaimed PC3 Series, the CUP-2 brings professional studio sound quality into your home. The CUP-2’s 88 onboard sounds have been taken directly from the PC3, and represent the best of nearly two decades of Kurzweil sound design and engineering (Sound Program List available for download here).
The famous Kurzweil Triple Strike Grand Piano is front and center (with a dedicated Grand Piano button), but the CUP-2 also provides world-class sounds in every category; rich strings and orchestral sounds, realistic electric pianos, drums, basses, guitars and synthesized sounds.
While the CUP-2 leaves a very small footprint in any room, it can also fill any room, great or small, with spectacular concert hall sound quality with its 140 watt bi-amped speaker system, the same system used in our top of the line X-Pro Upright.
