The Touch that Inspires - The N1 combines the superb natural feel of a real piano action with the innovation of digital technology.
The AvantGrand N1 offers the player a specially-developed action that features the same configuration as that of a grand piano.. The hammers strike the “virtual strings” from underneath, allowing minute adjustments to the weight distribution of the hammers, and to the movement of the hammers themselves, for a smoother feel when playing. In addition to a hammer sensor, the AvantGrand employs a non-contact key sensor that has no effect on the movement of the keys, affording excellent recognition of the player's pressure on the keyboard, timing, and the other delicate nuances that affect musical expression. This combination provides an impressive sensitivity for the entire range from pianissimo through to fortissimo, and the ability to translate even the swiftest trills of the pianist with transparency.
The superb natural feel of a real piano action
The touch and feel of a piano is vitally important to any pianist, whether they’re just starting out or playing at a professional level. The N1 delivers an authentic playing experience that is almost indistinguishable from that of an acoustic piano. With the same action and natural wood keys as used in Yamaha’s finest upright pianos, the NU1 offers a realistic feel that is sure to inspire.
Experience the stunning sound of Yamaha’s premier concert grand piano in the comfort of your home
The N1 features sound carefully sampled from one of the finest instruments that Yamaha has ever made—the CFX full concert grand piano. To complement its sparkling highs and full-bodied bass, the N1 utilizes newly-developed acoustic technology unique to Yamaha to reproduce the characteristic resonance felt when playing an acoustic piano.
Alluring elegance that complements any room
The elegant simplicity of the N1 blends effortlessly into any setting, adding an air of distinction without being imposing. Inheriting the superb sound and playability of the AvantGrand series of pianos, the N1 offers the warmth and natural presence of an acoustic instrument in a stylish, compact form.
