The CLP685’s keyboard features the highly regarded Grandtouch system. These keys have a specially dried wooden core which has the classic feel of an acoustic piano. The keytops benefit from a synthetic material which has a similar touch as ivory and ebony. This makes the CLP685 suitable for traditional acoustic players who want each key to have a robust feel. The weighted hammer action has a smooth and consistent motion, allowing musicians to have an expressive response. This playability and likeness to an acoustic piano is ideal for advanced musicians wanting their performance to feature all of their subtle playing nuances.
The Yamaha Clavinova benefits from Bluetooth technology, opening your development to a variety of apps. The Bluetooth connects to your smartphone or tablet and interacts wirelessly for a quick, easy setup. You can use the Bluetooth compatibility for bespoke apps such as Chord Tracker, which analyses your favourite songs before displaying the chords directly for you. The Sound Controller offers parameter editing functions to tweak your piano’s playability and response to your exact preference. You can also record songs, track your progress and access sheet music all from your phone. This feature is ideal for developing musicians wanting to stay inspired, and advanced musicians needing to tweak the performance to their exact preference.
VRM Physical Modelling
The Virtual Resonance Modelling technology optimises your piano’s resonance. In an acoustic piano each note blends with the next for natural swell and decay of sound. The VRM uses an advanced register to measure the strings’ distance and interaction with each other. It can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add an appropriate decay of each note. This gives the CLP685 a more acoustic feel with textured tones, removing any unnatural breaks in sound.
Binaural Sampling Technology
Yamaha’s advanced binaural sampling technology gives the player a fully immersive concert grand experience - even with headphones. The technology uses samples from the CFX, Yamaha’s acclaimed concert grand piano, recorded with specialised microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural that you’ll forget you’re even wearing headphones. Once you choose the Yamaha CFX Grand Voice and put headphones on, the binaural sampled sound is automatically ready and no additional settings are required. Now you can fully enjoy the concert grand experience at home, with or without headphones.
3 Speaker System
The 3 speaker design on this Yamaha Clavinova reproduces your notes with exceptional clarity and balance. The first speaker runs along the top bar of the piano, directing sound straight towards the performer for an immersive experience. The lower speaker pushes bass frequencies with a realistic resonance. The middle speaker adds warmth and mid frequency power to your mix. By having this speaker under the cabinet, the performer will notice a more accurate sound. The even tone and volume capabilities are ideal for musicians in a home, studio, or teaching environment.

Standard Courier Delivery
When you add this product to your shopping basket, you will be provided with our standard courier delivery option. This will deliver the piano to the ground floor of your house or building. Please note that if there is not a ground floor entrance we may not be able to deliver there. You may also need to help the delivery driver as this product comes packaged in large boxes.
This may not be suitable if you are unable to help the driver if required, or if you need the piano delivering upstairs. Please consider whether this is the most appropriate delivery service for you, as other delivery options are available at an additional cost.
2 Man Delivery Service
The delivery personnel will deliver the piano to a ground room floor of your choice, rather than just the front door. Please note that this service will take a few days longer than the standard courier. If you would require a 2 man delivery service, please contact us on 0330 365 4444 for further information.
Delivery and Installation Service
This service can be arranged on an ad-hoc basis via a specialist piano delivery company. Delivery times cannot be guaranteed until we have made arrangements with the delivery company. If you would prefer a delivery and installation service, please contact our sales team on 0330 365 4444 who will be happy to set up a quotation for you and provide you with more information on this service.
