What Yamaha boasted as “the most popular, most reliable and most award-winning reproducing piano in the world” just got upgraded
Yamaha has announced the shipment of Disklavier ENSPIRE, the seventh generation of Disklavier pianos – an instrument that the company claims to be a “piano of unlimited potential” – with three system variations (CL, ST and PRO) spanning 14 models, ranging from 48-inch uprights to a nine-foot concert grand.
Replacing the E3 series, the Disklavier ENSPIRE’s new streamlined design eliminates the control box of previous generations, while an app enables the piano to be controlled by Apple iOS and Android devices, as well as PCs and Macs. The controller app provides direct access to over 500 built-in songs and over 6,000 performances that can be downloaded directly to the instrument from Yamaha’s online store.
Users can listen to unique stereo ensemble recordings with piano performances from the largest and most recognised artist roster in the world, with songs including The New Cool by Bob James & Nathan East; Angel and I Will Remember You by Sarah McLachlan, Gran Torino by Jamie Cullum and Reverie by Frederic Chiu.
As part of its recording capability, the ENSPIRE possesses Yamaha’s AccuPlay technology – an integrated DSP servo drive system that monitors key, hammer, pedal and solenoid movement during playback and automatically adjusts in real-time.
Yamaha Disklavier ENSPIRE is available in 14 models, 48-inch uprights and grand pianos ranging from five-feet to the flagship nine-feet concert grand. For more information, visit disklavierenspire.com
