Disklavier is the modern day version of the “player piano.” Disklavier pianos are true acoustic pianos that incorporate fiber optic sensing systems, high performance solenoids, and state-of-the-art computer technology. These pianos can very accurately record piano performances and play back with all of the expression and nuance of the original performance. These instruments have many capabilities that provide a wide range of entertainment and educational uses.
The Yamaha Disklavier E3 combines technology with tradition to open up a whole new world of musical possibilities to explore. The E3’s innovative features help you find your own customized way to relax. When you pick up the remote control, you are instantly ready to enjoy new music over the Internet or listen to an old favorite from your personal CD collection. The E3 also comes with built-in speakers as well as exclusive Yamaha CD’s, allowing you to start listening right away without a complicated set-up process. And no matter where you live, when you connect the E3 to the Internet, you gain access to a treasure trove of musical performances from the finest musicians in the world.
Relax to the sounds of the world’s greatest music
1) Start listening the same day it arrives in your home.
There is no special software to install, and you don’t need to purchase any music. Special music CDs come included with every E3. You can literally start listening as soon as the E3 is delivered to your home. With over 200 songs prepared for you by Yamaha, all you have to do is sit back and let the E3 turn your living room into a concert hall.
2) Hear subtle sounds with crystal clarity.
The volume on the E3 can be adjusted to meet your particular needs and ensure that your entertainment never disturbs. With the volume set at its lowest levels, the E3 can play whisper-soft sounds while retaining all of the clarity you expect from a Yamaha acoustic piano.
3) The convenience of DisklavierRadio.
With the E3’s Internet Direct Connection (IDC), you can listen to DisklavierRadio by “streaming,” receiving radio-type broadcasts from the Internet. DisklavierRadio offers uninterrupted streams of music on over 11 different channels full of tunes to match your mood.
