Introducing the Roland LX705 digital piano
As the first model in the new LX700 series the LX705 punches hugely above its weight! Offering a great specification for the price it combines the best features of the higher end LX706 and LX708 with excellent value for money. The sound chip is the same, offering PureAcoustic modelling technology with unlimited polyphony and the same choice of American or European grand piano voices.
The instrument benefits from Roland's Piano Designer menu, enabling the pianist to customise almost every aspect of the piano sound from lid position to duplex scaling to the amount of cabinet resonance - you can make the piano your own, just like an acoustic instrument and also save these and share them with the rest of the world using the Piano Designer app. Bluetooth connectivity enables use of the Piano Designer and new Piano Every Day apps, along with audio streaming so you can play along with your favourite songs.
And with a four-speaker system bringing your music into the world, the entry-level to the LX700 series still punches well above its weight. Play a piano in the LX700 series and you’ll quickly find there’s a lot to love; getting started is easy - stopping is much harder.
Stylish cabinet design with a compact footprintBoasting 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 systemWhile 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 optimised to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano’s dynamic range.
Express yourself fully with PHA-50 keyboard & Progressive Damper Action pedalsFrom 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 rangeRegardless of which LX700 model you choose, many of the headline features are standard across the range. For example, Roland’s PureAcoustic Piano Modelling and PureAcoustic 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.
Beautifully simple designWhen a piano sounds this good, it should look good too. From the tall, impressive cabinet flanked by one-piece side panels on the LX708, to the elegant front legs and sophisticated curves, every piano in the LX700 series draws you in and compels you to start playing. Across all three models, the finish has been carefully selected and meticulously manufactured, so you can choose a piano that truly looks at home in your living room. They have even received numerous awards, the overall lineup receiving both the 2019 iF Design Award and Red Dot Product Design Award 2019, while the flagship LX708 model was honored with a Good Design Award 2018.
Great performances start with great soundTone is a priority for any serious pianist. The rich sound of a grand piano is created by a multitude of physical interactions; keys are pressed, hammers strike, strings resonate, and sound emanates. These and many other elements all contribute to the final sound that reaches the player. Roland’s entirely new PureAcoustic Piano Modeling uses advanced technology to reproduce the interactions within each of these stages, resulting in a beautifully rich sound that, until now, could only come from a grand piano.
Play in a concert hall, while sat at homePull up the stool, close your eyes and imagine playing a concert grand piano in a renowned concert hall. Transformed by the acoustic properties of the hall, the sound becomes even more dramatic and powerful. To recreate this experience at home, the LX700 series not only reproduces the rich, powerful sound of a grand piano, but also the space in which it’s played. Discover how it sounds to play in larger spaces, including concert halls, cathedrals and studios, adding an extra dimension to an already wonderful instrument.
Transforms into an impressive Bluetooth® speaker systemThe high-quality speaker systems found in the LX700 series will fill your home or venue with rich, exceptional sound. When you’re entertaining friends, Bluetooth audio functionality allows the piano to replace your hi-fi, wirelessly connecting to your tablet or smartphone and playing your favourite songs and playlists through the speakers.
Practice in peace without disturbing othersA key advantage of a digital piano is using headphones, to avoid disturbing others. But the LX700 series takes it a step further, using Headphone Acoustic Projection technology to optimize the sound sent to the headphones. As you play, you’re enveloped in rich, warm sound that seems to emanate from the piano itself. You’ll enjoy all the benefits of the PureAcoustic Ambience feature on the headphones, too – just close your eyes and you could be playing a midnight concerto in a concert hall, from the comfort of your own home.
Connect to your smart device and make piano practice funPiano practice is a pleasure, not a chore, when you use the LX700 series’ integrated Bluetooth MIDI functionality. You can wirelessly connect to educational apps like Roland’s Piano Every Day, accessing digital sheet music, song libraries, and more. And when you’re just relaxing, the Piano Every Day app lets you control the piano’s internal song library from the comfort of your sofa.
Onboard educational features improve your piano playingPlaying alongside the onboard songs prepares you for joining a band or orchestra, while Twin Piano mode lets a learner and teacher play side-by-side in the same key range. The built-in metronome develops accurate timing, while the onboard recorder lets you capture what you’ve just played, then listen back to evaluate your progress. Meanwhile, the unique Do Re Mi Lesson found in the onboard songs lets you learn music basics, by singing solfege along with the songs or practicing score-reading.
