Introducing the Yamaha AvantGrand N1X hybrid piano

The Yamaha AvantGrand N1X hybrid grand piano is the first in Yamaha's hybrid digital piano line-up to feature a grand piano action. Inherently different to an upright piano mechanism, the grand keyboard of the N1X is considerably more responsive than the upright NU1X with a more finely judged weight. Piano samples taken from Yamaha's own CFX concert grand along with the Bosendorfer Imperial are rich and dynamic, with Virtual Resonance Modelling and Spatial Sampling to enhance their authenticity.

A pallet of 13 other instrument sounds also includes electric pianos, organs and harpsichord, making a total of 15 to choose from. A powerful, specially designed speaker system adds an extra dimension to the sound too, accurately reproducing the sound field created by an acoustic grand piano. Specially positioned speakers give the impression that the sound is coming from a grand piano soundboard, while binaural sampling delivers the same quality sound via headphones.

Connect the N1X to your smart device via Bluetooth for audio streaming and connectivity to iOS/Android apps such as Yamaha's own Smart Pianist.

Experience the response and feel of an authentic acoustic grand piano action

Beneath your fingers you sense the same precise weight and responsiveness, the same scope for expression. To capture every nuance of your performance, Yamaha employs a non-contact optical sensor system that doesn’t affect the feel or performance of the action in any way. Under each key is a continuous optical sensor that captures the speed and depth at which that key is depressed. An additional optical sensor affixed to each hammer shank measures the timing and strength of the hammer hitting the virtual “strings”. This information is instantly translated into a beautifully authentic sound reproduction.

Two world-class grand pianos in one

When it comes to judging piano tone, much depends on personal taste. To help you achieve the tonal palette you desire, Yamaha offers the choice of two world-class grand pianos in one—each with its own unique character to convey the emotion you want to express through a piece of music. At the touch of a button on the AvantGrand N1X, you can opt for authentic sounds sampled either from a Yamaha CFX concert grand or from a Bösendorfer Imperial. As Yamaha’s flagship grand piano, the majestic CFX boasts a wide palette of tonal colors, from sparkling high notes to powerful bass tones. The legendary Bösendorfer, meanwhile, is renowned for its sonorous and rich Viennese sound. Either way, the lifelike sounds of the AvantGrand N1X allow you to explore the outer reaches of your expressive imagination.

Spatial Acoustic Sampling, Spatial Acoustic Speaker System

Treating the sound-board not simply as a point source of sound but as a plane, Yamaha took samples at four positions, adding optimum centre and rear locations to the traditional left and right. Meanwhile, the AvantGrand’s speaker system has been designed to ensure that this sound is heard best at the playing position. A three-way system featuring woofer, mid-range and tweeter speakers precisely reproduce the rich natural resonance of the soundboard. Even more, each of the low-, mid-, and high-frequency bands has been given its own amplifier to prevent interference between bands.

The authentic feel of a grand piano pedal

The N1X features a damper pedal that recreates the subtle changes in resistance experienced when using a grand piano pedal. What’s more, the N1X's damper pedal allows you to use the same half-pedal techniques that you would with a grand piano, offering detailed control over sustain and reverberation.

A fully immersive headphone experience

Thanks to our advanced binaural sampling* technology, the sound you hear through your headphones is remarkably lifelike. This technology uses piano samples recorded by specialized microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural, so enveloping, that you’ll soon forget you’re even wearing headphones at all.
(*CFX Grand Voice only)

Distinctive elegant lines of a Yamaha grand piano

The N1X embellishes any room with the unique, refined curves of an acoustic grand piano despite being a much more compact musical instrument. Yamaha have overlooked no detail in ensuring that it looks and feels just like the real thing, whether you are enjoying its lush tones from a distance or sitting down and playing for yourself.

Intelligent UX and Integration

Behind its simple control panel, the N1X hosts an abundance of connectivity options for maximum functionality and integration with external devices. It can be connected directly to computers and mobile devices via USB, sound and recording systems via audio cables, act as a Bluetooth receiver, and integrate with iOS apps via WiFi.
