Since the release of the world’s first electronic piano in 1974, Roland has been leading the innovation in digital pianos, and our new LX pianos are among the most exciting yet. The LX-17 is equipped with the new PHA-50 keyboard that blends wood and molded material. Wooden sides give each key a familiar, rigid mass that feels just right to play, while durable inner frame lets you enjoy your Roland piano for many years. Each key has a stabilizing pin to ensure the vertical travel of the key is smooth and precise. The LX-17 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a six-channel amplifier. The cabinet speakers produce the main sound, while the top-mounted asymmetric spatial speakers reproduce the resonance of the piano’s frame. The nearfield speakers and tweeters project dynamic overtones and the noise of the piano hammers. This multi-channel acoustic projection system recreates the rich, deep sound of an acoustic grand piano. The sound can also be made even clearer by opening the top lid, just like on an acoustic piano. The SuperNATURAL Piano Modelling technology spans the entire sound creation process of a typical piano including the combination of notes played, their resonance and the way in which the piano’s many elements interact with each other. The result is a rich, living sound – complete with overtones – that actually changes in response to the way you play; something impossible to achieve with conventional sampling. Using BLUETOOTH® technology, the LX-17 wirelessly connects to your mobile device, enabling you to take advantage of popular apps. You can also record your performance to USB. Combining classic lines with a space-saving compact upright cabinet, there are two premium finishes available; polished ebony and polished white. The LX-17 – our most luxurious home piano with the ultimate sound experience.
