Key Features

  • CFX Stereo Sampling faithfully reproduces the sound of Yamaha’s flagship CFX Full Concert Grand.
  • Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) with synthetic ebony and ivory key tops add a tactile surface to the keys, which absorbs finger moisture and prevents slipping.
  • Half-damper pedal control allows for continuously increasing amounts of sustain as the pedal is depressed.
  • The Smart Pianist app not only gives you full control over your piano’s major functions, but also analyzes your favorite songs right out of your music library using chord tracker technology.
  • Damper Resonance DSP recreates the sound of the inside of a grand piano when the dampers are off the strings.
  • The USB TO HOST port allows players to connect to and interact with a wide variety of educational, creative and entertaining musical applications on a computer or mobile device.
  • The 2-track song recorder allows players to practice one hand at a time, or record their next hit single!
  • 192 note polyphony allows you to play complex passages on your keyboard without any dropped notes.
  • 50 classic piano songs are provided in the built-in song memory as well as in a music book, “50 Greats for the Piano.” These can be used to supplement practice, or simply for the player’s listening pleasure.
  • Dual Mode lets you combine two Voices together, like piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience.
  • Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) automatically adjusts the EQ of the built-in stereo speaker system to the player’s setting, ensuring the richest tone at any volume level.
  • Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustic flow by using a special design and position within the instrument to control resonance and enrich the overall sound.
  • Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spatial distribution of sound in the listener’s headphones, creating the sensation that sound is coming directly from the piano, rather than from the headphones.
  • The Digital Piano 3-year, carry-in warranty protects you from defects or malfunctions not resulting from misuse. Simply return the product to your dealer, who will manage getting it repaired or replaced for you.

Customer Reviews

We got to christen LR’s newest acquisition tonight, a 9′ Bösendorfer which amazed concert goers who were used to seeing either our past-it’s-prime Steinway or a rented piano on stage for our soloists. Let me tell you folks, to say this instrument has an AMAZING sound understates what I heard. I have always been a fan of the Bösendorfer sound, and tonight had everyone of my memories of those instruments reignited. Such wonderful presence, projection, and rich full tone… and in the hands of a master like John Anthony Cheek, it shone in all it’s glory. Of course, being a Lutheran institution, the first piece performed on it was a Bach Keyboard Concerto! Followed by something completely different, “The Piano Factory” by (we’ll claim him since he’s been transplanted here so long) NC’s own J. Mark Scearce showing off a completely different set of sounds this remarkable instrument is capable of. Kudos to John and Daniel Kiser in putting together the deal to make this happen for LRU – thanks to the donors and everyone responsible including Ruggero Piano and Yamaha/Bösendorfer USA. If you missed it… I am sorry for you (LR Choir Tour members from 1978 will remember that quote). - Tim Phillips – Lenoir-Rhyne University
