Play legendary grand pianos
Enjoy the rare opportunity to create a grand piano sound in your home. Not just this, but you get this remarkable tone in a stylish, slim upright that won't take over your room. Many dream of playing either the Yamaha CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial, but here you get an authentic experience of playing both. This gives you the chance to mix up your tone based on the genre of your music, whether that works better with the strong, full-bodied palette of the CFX or the warmest Vienna tones of the Imperial.
Remarkable key action
Play a hybrid with a luxurious natural feel. The Yamaha NU1X provides better piano key action than most other models. This is thanks to Yamaha using 88 individual wooden keys, with the moving parts that you'd find in an acoustic upright piano. A feature like this is exceptional in this price range. So many wood and organic parts create more natural tonal vibrations for you to feel whilst you play. The deep care that has been taken with this key action makes it quick, light, and responsive - a pleasure to play.
Upright acoustic details
Play with the feeling you know and love. Since many learners develop their sound on an upright piano, Yamaha decided to create this, one of their only digital hybrids that are based on an upright piano. Thanks to this, you'll get the lighter upright feel that you like, as well as the richest concert sounds, perfect for performing. This performance-ready sound comes as you can boom out with the power of 256 note polyphony. No matter how complex your piece, this means the NU1X AvantGrand can keep up, letting each note ring out to its full potential.
Yamaha's Virtual Resonance Modelling adds to the strength, creating the surrounding sound you get with full string resonance. This technology calculates the state of each string in the different situationss your playing would put them into, whether that's played with strength or lightly and with a variety of pedal timing. Get a rich variety of expression to match your playing.
All with the control of digital
Experience this unrivalled piano craft with the power of modern technology. This means you get to project your traditional, grand piano tone as well as being able to get creative with 13 other voices. Adjust the volume to whatever the situation requires, whether that's full performance power with the two 45W speakers, or through headphones for silent practice. This silent practice won't sacrifice any sound quality. Advanced binaural sampling technology gives you an incredibly lifelike sound through headphones thanks to specialised microphones. And, with a range of connectivity options, open even more possibilities on your piano.
External device connection
Who said pianos had to be traditional? The Smart Pianist app offers a range of features that places you in control. The app enables you to select instrument voices, adjust various settings, record your performance, and much more! You will find yourself making music faster with this app as it gives you the freedom to do it via your smart device.
Want to play along with your favourite songs? Now you can! Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your music library, analyses the chord progressions, and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. It's that simple. Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song playback through your piano's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will also allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play. Please note: Smart Pianist functionality may vary dependent on the model of Yamaha piano used.
