Yamaha Disklavier 5' 3" Full-Function Baby Grand Piano, Polished Ebony
Conservatory Grand Collection - Mark IV
Yamaha Disklavier 5'3" Full-function Grand Piano is built to perform.
The Ultimate in Personal Music Entertainment:
Ever since the original Yamaha Disklavier introduced the marvels of hybrid acoustic/digital pianos back in 1986, these computer-age 'player' pianos have evolved into instruments that can reproduce 'live' acoustic piano concerts and ensemble music with instrumental backings and vocal tracks. The Disklavier Mark IV takes this all a step further. Yamaha's unique combination of both acoustic and digital superiority has made it the obvious choice of music-lovers, pianists, and educators worldwide. Its easy-to-operate user functions make the Disklavier a breeze to customize and automate, always giving you the right music at the right time. Combining the tone and touch of world-class Yamaha baby grand pianos with an astonishing range of interactive capabilities, the Mark IV is the ultimate piano for home entertainment systems, business establishments, or educational and creative environments.
Pocket Remote Control (PRC-100):
The sleek, compact design of the PRC-100 literally packs all of the Disklavier Mark IV's features and functions into a single hand-held device. Its intuitive full-color touch screen (320 x 240 pixels) is as easy to read as it is to use. You can browse your entire library with the handy stylus, or create custom playlists using the built-in QWERTY keypad.
Music So Inspiring You'll Want to Sing Along:
Just connect a microphone to the Disklavier Mark IV piano and sing along through its built-in speakers. To fine-tune your experience, the Mark IV offers performance-enhancing vocal effects including room, stage, hall, and reverb. You can choose to display song lyrics externally on any TV monitor or on internally via the Tablet Remote Control.
A Built-In Amplified Speaker System Only Possible From Yamaha:
The Disklavier Mark IV performs as a stand-alone unit or as part of the ultimate home audio/video system. With genuine Yamaha speakers, each powered monitor is discretely mounted at an outward angle sending music away from the piano for a more spacious overall sound. For larger audio systems and installations, flexible output routings are provided to send music to any part of the house your system allows. Outputs assigned to areas far from the Disklavier can have a digital piano sound inserted into the audio stream, while keeping a background only mix sounding in areas near the acoustic piano.
Low-Profile Hardware Provides the Gateway for All of Your Music Software:
Using the Media Center, software can be played directly from the built-in floppy disk and CD drives, and removable USB storage devices*, or loaded to internal memory for easy access. Convenient connections include headphone outputs, microphone input, and USB ports. The retractable glossy, black cover conceals the Media Center and matches the finish of the piano's cabinetry.
Practice Makes Perfect
More Than a Piano – the Yamaha XG Tone Generator:
Many educational software titles are available with ensemble backgrounds to accompany practice. The Yamaha XG tone generator has hundreds of high-quality instrumental voices to get the most out of your accompaniment.
The New AEM Tone Generator:
Taking digital instruments to new levels of realism, the new AEM (Articulation Element Modeling) tone generator breathes new life into orchestrated backgrounds. This next-generation sound source produces the subtle nuances heard in brass, saxophone, and string sections. Regular software, including educational and even karaoke titles, will spring to life with Yamaha's latest sound technology.
Practice One Hand While the Disklavier Plays the Other:
Every teacher knows that practicing hands separately improves speed, accuracy, and memorization. With the ability to play the right and left hands independent of one another on selected software titles, as well as vary the tempo, practicing piano on the Disklavier has become a truly interactive experience. Add to this the fact that many popular method and lesson books are being offered with hands-separate recordings on disk, and you've got the ultimate music practice partner.
Digital Quiet Mode/Headphone Mode Flexibility:
Yamaha Sound Muting System allows you to instantly switch off the sound of the acoustic piano, enabling the digital piano to be played at ultra-quiet volumes. With this feature, you can play and listen in Quiet Mode with the built-in speakers or in Headphone Mode via the privacy of dual headphones. Enjoy the Disklavier anytime at a sound level best suited for you and those around you.
There's a reason why the Yamaha Disklavier has become the symbol of excellence in reproducing pianos. Disklavier technology is factory-built into the piano from the beginning of its construction.
Superior Yamaha development and design:
The Disklavier Mark IV's advanced intricate internal construction:
- 1. Power supply unit
- 2. I/O center
- 3. Powered speaker
- 4. Powered speaker
- 5. Solenoid unit
- 6. Media center
- 7. Sensor
Ultra-Large Internal Music Storage Capacity:
Floppy disks, CDs, and other removable media are fine for carrying music from one place to another. But once the music makes it to the Disklavier Mark IV, it can be loaded onto the vast internal memory capable of holding hundreds of hours of music. Virtually every MIDI song file ever created for the Disklavier could be loaded and stored inside the Mark IV. If that seems a little excessive, the extra storage comes in handy for loading CD audio tracks.
Yamaha's Exclusive High-Performance Grayscale Hammer Sensor:
The world's first continual-detection optical hammer sensor continuously traces the hammer position from the time a key is pressed until it's released. This outperforms the previous two-point detection sensors of earlier Disklaviers and the simpler "Key ON/OFF" sensors used on many other systems. With the grayscale key sensor, the Mark IV monitors every motion of the key and hammer – even rapidly repeated notes – with meticulous precision and the softest touch.
Servo Control for Precision Playback Performance:
Under the command of specially developed LSI microprocessors, the servo control system continuously monitors the movement of each key, precisely recreating every detail of the original performance. This allows for a slow return of the keys and delicate pianissimo, things that were previously unattainable.
Get Connected with the I/O Center:
The Disklavier Mark IV has the ability to connect to a wide range of external equipment. Essentially, any device that connects to the Mark IV will be plugged into this "Input/Output" center. You can connect TVs, cameras, computers, home networks, and various other audio and music equipment to the I/O Center. No matter what your particular needs are, the Mark IV is ready to play…
