Yamaha DC2X Disklavier ENSPIRE Grand Piano
The new Yamaha Disklavier ENSPIRE DC2X is certainly a worthwhile upgrade to the DC1X if the extra space and budget is available. At 5'8 in length a larger soundboard area combined with longer strings makes for a richer and fuller tone, making the C2X ideal for the home or even the smaller performance space. As part of the coveted CX series the instrument benefits from specially selected, high quality lambs wool hammers and a unique soundboard design to improve resonance.
This model is the largest piano available with the ST Disklavier system, with all larger models incorporating the PRO system for even more accurate recording and playback.
Disklavier ENSPIRE is an all new player piano system with host of other intuitive features to transform your piano into something everyone can enjoy. Music can be streamed to your multi-room sound system, piano music streamed from the internet, backing tracks played back through built in speakers and you can even learn to play. Yamaha have rethought the user interface too, with this being the first generation of Disklavier without a cumbersome control box attached. Instead it is operated via an app downloadable to an Android or iOS device.
Recording and playback on the new system is more accurate than ever before, even at low volume and you can play along with backing tracks produced by the sound engine from the stunning flagship Tyros5 keyboard. This makes your performances much more realistic, and for the first time on a player piano system even includes real audio tracks for instrumentation and drums. In a unique collaboration between Yamaha's Audio Visual and Piano Divisions your piano can also now be a part of your Yamaha MusicCast multi-room sound system via wireless streaming.
The possibilities are endless and the new Disklavier Enspire offers something for everyone, the pianist and non pianist alike!
Streamlined controls offer ease-of-use while staying hidden from view - maintaining the classic look of the finely crafted Yamaha C2X Grand.
Network connectivity is built-in, offering easy use with mobile devices, smartphones and computers for unlocking all of the instrument’s unique capabilities and for playing back exclusive content.
The Disklavier Enspire allows you to revel in whatever music suits your mood or occasion, from classical solo piano or concerto selections to your favourite jazz or pop songs on piano – accompanied by audio and vocals. There are over 500 built-in songs* and thousands of performances that can be downloaded directly to the instrument from the Yamaha MusicSoft online store.
*Built-in songs include 380 piano solo songs (PianoSoft Solo), 72 songs with instrumental accompaniments (PianoSoft Plus), and 48 songs with audio backing (PianoSoft Audio).
In addition, the Enspire also offers revolutionary streaming radio services, allowing you to discover and enjoy thousands of piano performances in the comfort of your own home. Yamaha Piano Radio gives you instant access to over 30 channels of 24-hour streaming piano music.
Disklavier Enspire features popular, award-winning and legendary Yamaha artists such as Sarah McLachlan, Bob James, and Jamie Cullum*. These performances are not simply a rendition of the artist’s songs, but exclusive performances by the artists themselves, recorded specifically for Enspire. Experience the genuine touch, nuance and emotion as the instrument recreates a precise portrayal of the artist’s intentions.
*Songs you can enjoy with audio (PianoSoft Audio) are totally 48 songs. And 13 of them are by Yamaha artists such as Bob James, Jamie Cullum, and Sarah McLachlan.
The Disklavier Enspire is the only piano that can truly reproduce every nuance of a piano performance, precisely recreating all of the details that other player pianos cannot. For example, a player's key release timing controls the exact timing of each individual damper coming down on the string and contributes to the overall musical message that the pianist is trying to convey. Other player systems rely on predetermined programming to control the release of the piano keys, which results in every key releasing at the exact same speed during playback. This programming equates to half of the original performance being altered, which means half of the human element of the piano performance is removed. The Disklavier, by contrast, can reproduce all articulations of the performance, including the speed by which a key is released, meticulously reproducing what even other high-end systems cannot. Couple these unmatched reproducing capabilities with advanced AccuPlay DSP technology, and you have a piano that not only recreates every nuance of the original performance, but is intelligent enough to verify and adjust itself during playback to ensure accurate performance reproduction.
Extremely accurate recording functions allow teachers and students to critique recorded performances - providing new ways for students to enhance their musical development. Proprietary video sync technology gives users the ability to create, archive and share an acoustic piano driven visual performance using just the piano and a video camera.
Our Silent Piano technology allows you to listen, learn and play without being disturbed or disturbing others. Utilizing a unique sampling technique that replicates the interaural characteristics of the human ear, the Disklavier Enspire binaurally recreates the sound, presence and resonance of a Yamaha CFX Concert Grand from the player’s position through headphones. This innovative technology is built into every Enspire ST Disklavier, giving you increased flexibility and more opportunities to enjoy your piano.
