There are three models in the ROLAND LX700 series, offering the discerning player a true grand piano experience. The new series includes the flagship ROLAND LX708, mid-range ROLAND LX706 and entry-level ROLAND LX705
A few days ago, Roland released the new LX700 series of digital pianos, which recreates the experience of playing a beautiful grand piano in a world-class venue. Delivers superior performance for discerning players with innovations in tone generation, keyboard play, presence modeling and design.
LX705 | 2-way/4-speaker
Unlike typical digital pianos that create sounds through sampling, the LX700's pure acoustic modeling technology mimics the way an acoustic piano produces sound, including the hammers hitting the strings and the sound resonating through the piano's body. This approach allows for the selection of grand piano models that are completely realistic but unique in tone: one for European taste and another for American feel. Two super playable and customizable pianos for LX700 players. Roland's PureAcoustic Ambience technology convincingly simulates the acoustics of world-class concert halls, studios and even cathedrals, reproducing the sound space around the piano, which is especially impressive when using headphones profound.
The keyboards and pedals in the LX700 series respond faithfully to every nuance, so even highly sophisticated pianists need not adjust their playing or compromise their expression. Roland's new Hybrid Grand keyboards (LX708/LX706) feature longer keystrokes than standard digital pianos, so players don't have to press harder to play the keys. When playing a grand piano, the LX708's keyboard even reproduces the effects of the cabinet's resonance. Additionally, the LX708 features a newly designed responsive damper action for the most authentic pedal expression possible.
LX708 | 4-way / 8-speaker
With the exception of the keyboard, the above technologies are standard across the entire product range. Convenience features like Bluetooth audio, dual piano mode, a metronome, and the option to use headphones for private practice are also standard, as well as a unique C-shaped hole on the front of the piano for natural sound projection. The user interface is designed to be inviting to play, with minimal distractions, elegant backlit buttons and sophisticated knobs.
LX708 | Opening top lid
Each model of the digital piano offers a different combination of elegant cabinet designs, keyboards, pedals, and acoustic projection speaker systems. The flagship LX708 features a tall operating cabinet with an opening lid for optimal sound projection, as well as a powerful eight-speaker sound system. The mid-range LX706, with its shorter cabinet, closed-lid design and six-speaker system, matches pro-level performance at a great price. The entry-level LX705 has the most compact cabinet, four-speaker system and Roland's expressive PHA-50 keyboard, but still shares technology with flagship and high-end models. Depending on the model, finishes include polished ebony, polished white, charcoal, black rosewood and light oak.
C-shape with wide aperture
Launching with the LX700 series is Piano Every Day, a unique smartphone app that encourages players to play regularly. Once installed, LX700 users can browse and purchase Sheet Music Direct's online library of more than 70,000 scores, then track and display progress in learning new pieces as they try out "Timeline" projects, and complete exercises when necessary. Piano Every Day can be downloaded for free from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
