Immerse yourself in natural sound
The Yamaha CFX Binaural Sampling produces a natural, room-filling sound that lets you forget you’re wearing headphones. Combined with VRM (Virtual Resonance Modeling) for authentic reproduction of the unparalleled resonance of an acoustic piano, this technology allows you to immerse yourself completely in the natural sound of a piano – without being disturbed by the outside world.
Play audio files on your piano – a whole new experience!
Experience your audio files with the natural, rich sound that only a piano’s soundboard can produce. Play along with your audio files or just listen when your entire piano becomes a speaker. In any case, this new technology will find a place in your life.
The rich sound of different sounds comes from the entire piano.
Choose from the sounds of a variety of instruments. Among them are two legendary concert grand pianos – Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial – as well as electric pianos, harpsichords, organs and many more. Only with TransAcoustic™ pianos can these instruments sound from the entire piano and thus create an absolutely authentic acoustic sound experience.
With the Smart Pianist App you can select the different tones directly from your Smart Device.
The UD-WL01 USB Wi-Fi Adapter (sold separately) is required to create a wireless connection between the Smart Pianist App and the piano.
The focus is on how the piano works: sound and resonance.
When a key is struck, the hammer hits the strings and they begin to vibrate. The original sound is soft, but the soundboard amplifies it – with the entire body of the piano as the soundbox. The result is the unmistakable, rich sound of an acoustic piano. The TransAcoustic™ technology uses this mode of operation where the soundboard transmits the sound without really striking the strings.
Acoustic sound from digital sources
The TransAcoustic™ technology does not use speakers to reproduce the sound. Instead, sound converters are used. The transducers convert audio signals into vibrations, which are then transmitted to the soundboard. The soundboard amplifies the vibrations and the entire piano begins to vibrate in unison. Since the contact area between the transducer and the soundboard is very small, the vibration of the soundboard is not affected. Digital audio sources also go through this process. This allows you to experience the rich sound of an acoustic piano while listening to it.
