Nothing matches the experience of playing a grand piano; from the precision of the key and hammer movements beneath your fingers, to the warmth and depth of piano tone - nothing matches that sensation
except for our AvantGrand Piano.
Crafted around a true horizontal wooden hammer action from our grand piano workshops, AvantGrand uses our groundbreaking piano synthesis abilities and audio reproduction technologies to give you a grand piano experience that can fit into almost any home - whether that be a country retreat, urban house or city penthouse apartment.

The Voices of the CFX Concert Grand...
We crafted our first grand piano in 1902 and since then, have created some of the world’s finest instruments. The CFX is the pinnacle of modern acoustic and design technology combined with over a century of piano craftsmanship. A full 9-foot concert grand, CFX represents the results of 19 years development alongside some of the greatest pianists the world has ever seen.
...And Bösendorfer Imperial Grand
A truly iconic instrument from one of the most celebrated and revered piano manufacturers in the world. Handcrafted in Vienna, Austria, the Imperial concert grand has a depth and warmth of sound that is unique to Bösendorfer.
Spatial Acoustic Sampling, Spatial Acoustic Speaker System
Treating the soundboard not simply as a
point source of sound but as a plane, we took samples at four positions, adding optimum centre and rear locations to the traditional left and right. Meanwhile, the AvantGrand’s speaker system has been designed to ensure that this sound is heard best at the playing position. A three-way system featuring woofer, mid-range and tweeter speakers precisely reproduces the rich natural resonance of the soundboard. Even more, each of the low, mid, and high frequency bands has been given its own amplifier to prevent interference between bands. Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM)
In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings you are playing vibrating, but other strings ring as a reaction to ones you play. This is one reason the piano sound is so complex and rich.
This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the AvantGrand N1X through Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. As a result, the N1X reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing an acoustic piano such as which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedal timing.
The authentic feel of a grand piano pedal
The N1X features a damper pedal that recreates the subtle changes in resistance experienced when using a grand piano pedal. What’s more, the N1X's damper pedal allows you to use the same half-pedal techniques that you would with a grand piano, offering detailed control over sustain and reverberation.
A fully immersive headphone experience
Thanks to our advanced binaural sampling* technology, the sound you hear through your headphones is remarkably lifelike. This technology uses piano samples recorded by specialised microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural, so enveloping, that you’ll soon forget you’re even wearing headphones at all. (Binaural sampling is featured on the CFX Grand voice only)
Distinctive elegant lines of a Yamaha grand piano
The N1X embellishes any room with the unique, refined curves of an acoustic grand piano despite being a much more compact musical instrument. We've overlooked no detail in ensuring that it looks and feels just like the real thing, whether you are enjoying its lush tones from a distance or sitting down and playing for yourself.
Intelligent Connectivity and Integration
Behind its simple control panel, the N1X hosts an abundance of connectivity options for maximum functionality and integration with external devices. It can be connected directly to computers and mobile devices via USB, sound and recording systems via audio cables, act as a Bluetooth receiver, and integrate with iOS apps via WiFi.
USB Audio Recorder
The USB to Device port allows you to connect your USB flash drive and use it as a built-in piano recording studio. You can store your performances directly on the USB flash drive as audio songs. These songs are stored in WAV format, so you can listen back using the keyboard's on-board speaker system, or conveniently play them on a computer, transfer them to a portable media device or upload them to share with friends online.
