Stylish cabinet design with a compact footprint
Boasting the most compact cabinet in the range, this model fits snugly into your living room or apartment, complementing your décor with its clean lines and natural finish. Traditional and timeless – but with a twist – the LX705 is an instrument that makes a stylish statement without dominating your room. Available in polished ebony, dark rosewood, charcoal and light oak.
Punchy sound from powerful four-speaker system
While it has fewer speakers than the LX708 and LX706, the LX705’s Acoustic Projection System still offers ample power and punch for most musical scenarios, thanks to a two-way, four-speaker layout where each section has a specific role in delivering superior tone. The four speakers are split into two pairs, with each pair optimized to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano’s dynamic range. Whether you’re playing or streaming music, you’ll hear every note in immersive, crystal-clear sound.
Express yourself fully with PHA-50 keyboard & Progressive Damper Action pedals
When it comes to the wish-list for your new piano, feel should be a priority. From building basic skills to expressing yourself in a demanding piece, the LX705 always keeps you inspired with its PHA-50 keyboard. Whether you’re hammering or tickling the keys, you’re in control of a responsive keyboard that reacts to your touch and technique. Plus, in the longer-term, you’ll appreciate construction that combines artisan tradition and cutting-edge technology, with sleek wooden sides giving each white key a familiar feel, while the durable inner frame ensures maintenance-free reliability. Pull up a stool at the LX705, meanwhile, and you’ll find Progressive Damper Action pedals with a response to rival the best acoustic pianos out there.
Cutting-edge technology across the range
Each model in the LX700 series offers a different combination of cabinet design, keyboard, pedals and the number of onboard speakers. But regardless of which LX700 model you choose, many of the headline features are standard across the range. For example, Roland’s Pure Acoustic Piano Modelling and Pure Acoustic Ambience technology is available on all three instruments, along with the European and American piano models and the additional sounds including electric pianos, organs and orchestral. You also get convenient features like Bluetooth audio, Twin Piano mode, metronome and the option to use headphones to play in private, along with the unique C-shape aperture on the front panel that enables natural sound projection.
The power to create – at your fingertips
Roland’s Pure Acoustic Piano Modelling technology digitally recreates the way acoustic pianos create sound; the key is pressed, the hammer strikes the string, the string resonates within the cabinet – before many other elements shape the final sound. These elements interact to produce complex tonal characters, while the resonance alters in response to the number of notes being played, their register, and how the damper pedal is being pressed. In the hands of the right player, an unlimited level of expression can be achieved, and the LX-700 series puts all of this, and more, right at your fingertips.
Sensational Sound that Surrounds You
Each LX700 model includes an Acoustic Projection System, reproducing the rich, room-filling sound of a grand piano in a great venue – without needing the floorspace. The flagship LX708 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a powerful amplifier, with each speaker fulfilling a specific role in delivering superior piano tone. The powerful cabinet speakers produce the all-enveloping main sound, while the top-mounted spatial speakers reproduce the resonance of the piano’s frame, projecting through the front C-shape wide aperture. Finally, the nearfield speakers and tweeters project the sounds you’re most likely to notice, including dramatic, dynamic overtones and even the noise of the hammers hitting the strings through the keyboard section. The sound can be made even clearer by opening the top lid.
The keys replicate the look and feel of real ebony and ivory, and their textured, moisture-absorbing properties mean your fingers won’t slide off.
Learn Faster With the Roland Piano App
Studying piano doesn’t have to mean endless work. Just five minutes of focused daily practice can improve your playing—especially with the Roland Piano App. It runs on your smartphone or tablet and communicates with the piano via Bluetooth, so it’s always ready for action. Find your favorite tunes, play along, and record your performance or practice session. Then listen back to assess the areas that need attention, even when you’re away from the piano. It’s the fast-track route to better playing and way more enjoyable than just practicing over and over.
