About the Yamaha DGB1K Disklavier ENSPIRE Grand Piano
The NEW Yamaha Enspire Disklavier is simply the most advanced acoustic piano in the world. Building on the success of the popular E3 Disklavier series the new Enspire system offers an improved feature set and following a unique collaboration with Yamaha's Audio Visual Division your piano is transformed into a complete home entertainment system. The user interface has been much improved, the large control box with infra-red remote control has been replaced with a much smaller unit and you now completely control your Disklavier from your iOS or Android device. Playback is more accurate than ever before, and Yamaha have even included the sound engine from their stunning flagship Tyros5 keyboard for backing track recording and playback making your performances much more lifelike. Through wireless streaming your piano can also now be a part of your multi-room sound system - the possibilities are endless and the new Disklavier Enspire offers something for everyone; the pianist and non pianist alike. This system works fantastically with the ever popular Yamaha GB1 baby grand piano. At 4'11'' it will fit into smaller living spaces while still producing a wonderful quality of tone. It has a clear, bell like sound and is surprisingly rich in the bass. The attention to detail is faultless and Yamaha utilise a good many of the techniques used on their larger grand pianos in order to get as much sound quality as is possible out of this smaller framed piano. The results are fantastic.

Every Note, Every Nuance
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.
Inspired By Technology, Powered By Performance
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.
The Sound of Innovation
Yamaha SILENT Piano™ technology allows you to listen, learn and play without being disturbed or disturbing others. Utilizing a unique sampling technique that replicates the inter-aural 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 and PRO model Disklavier, giving you increased flexibility and more opportunities to enjoy your piano.
