The hybrid sound
The NU1X offers 15 different voices, from pianos to organs, and harpsichord to piano/string combinations. While all of the sounds housed in NU1X have been created with the greatest attention to detail, nothing can compare to the its samples of two legendary concert grands: the Yamaha CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial.
The nine-foot CFX is a full sized concert grand piano characterized by a wide palette of tonal colors and the ability to create the subtlest expressive nuances. The CFX was one of the Yamaha's most ambitious projects and greatest achievements, and no expense was spared to confirm that what you hear in the NU1X lives up to the reputation of the original.
Bösendorfer has been perfecting the craft of piano creation for over 185 years. The legendary 97-key Imperial Grand has been serving artists from Franz Liszt to Tori Amos since 1909, offering the largest soundboard of all concert grands and a characteristic warm tone known as the "Viennese Sound." From dramatic presence and power to tender passion, every subtlety of this $300,000 masterpiece is at your fingertips with Clavinova.
The hybrid touch
When considering the experience of playing an acoustic piano, the touch is every bit as important as the sound. Yamaha uses the same style of hammer system and natural wood keys found in their upright pianos, making the NU1X nearly identical to the feel of their U1 upright. Rather than trying to mimic the response of an upright piano, the NU1X feels real, because it is real.
GP Response damper pedal
The damper pedal on an acoustic piano functions like a lever system to raise the damper off the strings. Yamaha’s GP Response Damper Pedal feels heavier as you push it further down, just like the damper pedal on an acoustic piano. This allows a player to have a more consistent experience between playing the NU1X and a grand piano.
The digital advantage
While every effort has been made to offer an acoustic piano experience, saving money on piano tuning is hardly the greatest advantage to owning a digital piano. Yamaha offers state-of-the-art technologies in NU1X, allowing you a greater opportunity to explore your creativity. Advanced connectivity options include USB for storage and MIDI, Bluetooth for audio streaming, and WiFi iOS App integration.
