What is an AvantGrand piano?

What is an AvantGrand piano?

Most of the Yamaha hybrid piano designs are a 100% functional acoustic piano with the integration of digital piano technology… The AvantGrand series is this ethos in reverse. A flawless sounding digital piano, coupled with a real acoustic upright piano action, the Yamaha NU1Xa is the hybrid piano for those seeking all of the convenience and capabilities of a digital piano, with absolutely no sacrifice in quality of piano touch.

The action found in the NU1Xa is the same design and geometry as found in Yamaha upright pianos, meaning that for the first time ever, when practicing on a digital piano there is no risk of diminished development of proper piano technique and ability.

The NU1XA features our newly developed Articulation Sensor System, which accurately and continuously captures the pianist’s subtlest performance nuances, through non-contact electromagnetic sensors and Yamaha's proprietary algorithm. This system utilizes two separate sensors on each key: one for the hammer—the most crucial part of the acoustic piano sound mechanism—and the other for the key itself, to precisely measure the movement of finger release and articulate exactly the special nuances when the sound stops. Together, they fully capture the most delicate expressions of the player.

Virtual Resonance Modelling and Binaural Sampling means that the digital sample sound of the Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos have been recorded in such a way that every nuance and sparkle of these remarkable pianos has been captured and reproduced in the NU1Xa, fully experienced even when using headphones.

This connection is further emphasised by the brilliantly responsive and autherntically functioning three pedal system. Although most of the NU1Xa is modelled on the appearance and utility of an upright piano, the three pedals in fact function like those on a grand piano.

Being utilised in prestigious teaching institutions, such as the Julliard School in New York, and professional music venues across the world, the AvantGrand range has been accepted by professionals and enthusiasts alike as a worthy and convenient replacement to the acoustic piano.
