Introducing the Roland LX706 digital piano

The mid-range model of the new LX700 series range, the LX706 is the first model in the range to feature the newly developed Hybrid Grand Keyboard action and PureAcoustic modelling sound engine, resulting in a piano far more authentic than Roland has produced to date. The Hybrid Grand action has longer keys than ever before, resulting in a more nuanced and balanced touch, while retaining the wood and plastic construction of the PHA50 keyboard for enhanced structural rigidity.

The usual refinements include escapement and ivory & ebony feel, and for the first time what Roland calls Haptic Key Vibration. This recreates the natural vibrations the pianist feels through the keys and has only previously been available on considerably more expensive Hybrid models. This suits the new PureAcoustic modelling sound engine perfectly, with new European and American grand piano sounds which are purely modelled for the most authentic possible attack and decay.

And with a more compact cabinet, closed-lid design and six-speaker system, the LX706 matches its pro-level performance with a budget-conscious price.

Compact cabinet design that invites you to play

With its shorter cabinet height and closed-lid format, this sleek model is ideal for players who can’t spare the space for the taller LX708. The clean lines and lustrous finish instantly catch the eye, while closer inspection reveals the signature build features that make the LX series so enticing. Traditional and timeless – but with a twist – the LX706 is an instrument that complements your living space without dominating it. Available in polished ebony, dark rosewood and charcoal.

Three-way, six-speaker system for room-filling sound

With a more streamlined take on the LX708’s Acoustic Projection System, the LX706 is still powerful and flexible enough for any musical scenario, with a three-way, six-speaker layout. Each of the three pairs of speakers are optimised to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano’s dynamic range – even down to the noise as the hammers strike the strings, or the resonance of the cabinet as the sound reverberates through the piano’s body. Whether playing or streaming, you’ll hear your music with crystal-clear clarity.

Hybrid Grand Keyboard & Progressive Damper Action pedals

From dramatic left-hand rhythms to delicate top-note trills, the LX706 will keep you inspired with its new Hybrid Grand Keyboard and Progressive Damper Action pedals. Every key on the LX706’s Grand Hybrid keyboard is longer than on typical digital pianos; the extra length means the pivot point sits further back, so less pressure is needed to depress each key – and your hands won’t grow tired when playing over longer periods. The white keys combine sleek wooden sides with a durable inner frame for maintenance-free reliability. And when playing, you’ll feel the ideal balance of pressure, momentum and return movement, along with smooth vertical travel, while the addition of pedals that enable a variety of advanced techniques makes this an authentic and thrilling piano experience.

Cutting-edge technology across the range

Regardless 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 design

When 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 sound

Tone 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 home

Pull 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 system

The 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 others

A 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 fun

Piano 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 playing

Playing 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.
