Description



Roland’s flagship digital piano, the LX17 combines all the features available in Roland’s piano range with 8 custom speakers and 6 dedicated amplifiers to create simply the best sounding Roland digital piano ever created. If you’re looking for the best of the best, look no further than the Roland LX17. Featuring top-of-the-line PHA-50 blend of wood and molded material keyboard action with escapement and ebony/ivory feel, Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL modelling engine, continuous pedal feature and simulated adjustable acoustic resonance, every nuance of a piano performance can be controlled by the player to give the most realistic piano performances.

The LX-17 connects via Bluetooth® technology to your smartphone or tablet so you can hear your music-making apps or online piano lessons through the piano’s powerful eight-speaker sound system. And even though it’s compact, the classically-styled LX-17 is our tallest upright piano and it’ll definitely make a big impact in your home especially with a choice of finishes including polished ebony and polished white.

 

SuperNATURAL Modelling

Press a key on most digital pianos and you’ll hear a recording of a piano note. But a SuperNATURAL Piano works differently, using the latest modeling technology to recreate, rather than replay, the sound. The unique, modeling process spans the entire sound creation process of a typical piano including the combination of notes played, their resonance and the way in which the piano’s many elements interact with each other. The result is a rich, complex sound – complete with overtones – that actually changes in response to the way you play; something impossible to achieve when a piano uses samples. It’s the difference between just listening back to a recording or actually being there yourself.

PHA-50 Keyboard

The wooden piano keyboards often found on acoustic pianos are attractive to look at and they feel solid and substantial under your fingers. But a completely wooden keyboard is not the best approach for a digital piano, as wooden keys need regular maintenance to keep them in the best condition. The LX-17 has a new type of keyboard that blends wood and molded material for the best of both worlds; beautiful wooden sides give each key a familiar, rigid mass that feels just right to play, while the durable inner frame lets you enjoy your Roland piano every day for years to come without worrying about reliability. You can play it every night too – as our piano key construction also produces less of a “thump” noise when played.

Acoustic Speaker System

Roland’s Acoustic Projection speaker system reproduces the rich, immersive sound experience of an acoustic grand piano. The LX-17 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a powerful six-channel amplifier and each section fulfils a specific role in delivering superior piano tone. The powerful cabinet speakers produce the all-enveloping main piano sound, while the top-mounted asymmetric spatial speakers reproduce the resonance of the piano’s frame. Finally, the nearfield speakers and tweeters project the sounds most likely to be noticed by the player, including dramatic, dynamic overtones and even the noise of the hammers as they hit the piano string. The sound can also be made even clearer by opening the top lid, just like on an acoustic piano.

Bluetooth Connectivity and Apps

Today, people often play and learn the piano with the aid of smartphones and tablets. Using Bluetooth technology, the LX-17 wirelessly connects to your mobile device, enabling you to take advantage of popular iOS/Android apps and online practice videos. Once connected, the audio is routed through the piano’s internal speakers, or headphones if you prefer to practice in private. Then you can play along with your favourite artist and bands or practice with the very best piano teachers. You could visit Sheet Music Direct to download a wide range of music scores, or install iOS apps like PiaScore with free access to over 70,000 classical music scores; you can even turn the pages of the score on your iPad/iPhone screen by pressing the piano’s pedal.

Headphones 3D Ambience

One of the great advantages of a digital piano is the ability to play quietly with headphones. However, when used with headphones, some digital pianos simply switch the sound from the speakers to your ears. This is a missed opportunity as good headphones can provide remarkable clarity and detail when you’re practicing. Roland pianos use Headphones 3D Ambience to optimize the audio so it sounds like it’s coming from within the piano itself and not through your headphones. You’ll also be able to practice for extended periods of time without fatigue, any time of the day or night.
