So if you are making the decision to choose a digital piano over a real acoustic one, there are a couple of important points you should really consider. The first is, how accurate is the piano action to replicate the real acoustic piano in touch, control and feedback. The second, does the digital sample and speaker system deliver a sound that is incredibly close to that of the acoustic piano and give you that emotional connection and experience. Therefore in the digital piano world, the CLP685 is pretty close to doing just that, and should be top of your shopping list.
When it comes to style and looks the CLP685PE has it all. The stunning looking polished ebony finish along with the chrome detailing on the pedals, make this a piano to grace any home. In addition you feel you are sitting at a real acoustic piano as the control panel sits over at the left hand side.
Yamaha have achieved this quality of excellence through a history of acoustic piano manufacturing. With Real Grand Expression, these elements are combined perfectly into a single instrument. Therefore creating the exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. When you play a CLP685, you can imagine that you are playing a grand piano.
When it comes to touch, Yamaha have created their best ever Clavinova action right here. The GrandTouch keyboard design, recreates the responsive feel of a grand piano. They considered the key mechanism and weight, as well as the key shape and friction that occurs during key travel. In doing so, have widened the range of differences in key touch between lighter and harder playing. This lets you naturally sense the difference between louder and quieter sounds while playing.
Furthermore, the design allows you to play with an expressiveness that rivals that of a grand piano. Therefore the GrandTouch keyboard gives you tactile feedback from the time you touch the keys until they reach the keybed. What‚'s more, they have included a mechanism that simulates the lifting of hammers on a grand piano. This recreates the feeling of escapement at the end of the key stroke. As a result, the GrandTouch emulates both the release feeling that is unique to an actual escapement mechanism, and the feeling of stopping that comes afterwards.
When it comes to sound, the CLP685 really does capture the beauty of the Yamaha CFX and the Imperial B√∂sendorfer concert grands. A highly skilled piano technician tunes the carefully selected Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer grand pianos. The process then involves the sound of each key being individually sampled. The characteristics of these two great pianos, power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness are completely at your fingertips.
In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the CLP685 through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). This calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. Thus allowing vivid, richly-varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing the piano. Capturing which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and the pedal timing.
The CLP685 is calibrated carefully, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. This creates a sound image that is very close to the grand piano. Tone Escapement features in several locations throughout the body of the CLP685. This allows the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener‚'s ears without being trapped inside the instrument. It also features dedicated DSPs, amplifiers and speakers, this vastly improves sound production. In addition it ensures that the volume and quality of sound heard by the performer is flawless, with the output from each speaker arriving at the performer‚'s ears in perfect synchrony.
The Yamaha CLP685PE features speaker cones that use pulp from the same spruce wood used to make acoustic piano soundboards. This results in a more natural, piano-like attack to the sound and draws from Yamahas experience in building both acoustic pianos and high-end speakers.
