Convenience Only Digital Pianos Can Deliver

Clavinova pianos are loaded with convenient features only digital pianos can deliver. Use headphones to keep your surroundings quiet, and play along with the preset songs. Also, connect to Yamaha’s app, Smart Pianist, to gain extra help for your piano practice.


Featuring the latest GrandTouch keyboard with a broad dynamic range of touch and response on the level of a grand piano. Excellent consistency and nuanced expression give the pianist the utmost control over touch.


Grand Expression Modeling is a groundbreaking new technology that enables the pianist to use their techniques to produce the limitless tonal variation unique to grand pianos. The ability to vary the intensity and speed of touch to produce different tones adds another dimension to the joy of musical expression.

Sound Quality

Virtual Resonance Modeling performs real-time modeling of the sympathetic resonance created by the behavior of the strings and body of the instrument—the foundation of the beautiful sound of a genuine grand piano. Also, the latest acoustic design technology delivers lifelike concert grand piano tone and resonance to your home for you to enjoy.

Dedicated Smart Pianst app available for easy sound selection and control

In addition to selecting various sounds, you can use Yamaha's dedicated Smart Pianist app to adjust a range of functions that affect the sound of the Piano, such as Transpose, Tuning, Keyboard response and Pedal settings. You can virtually adjust the ‘lid position’ of the piano and place it in different ‘venues.’ On some models, you can use the Layer function to overlay sounds, or the Split function to play different voices with the left and right hands, playing multiple voices simultaneously to create performances with a pleasingly full sound. The app is free to download and is available for most iOS and Android devices.
