Timeless Acoustic Resonance

The acoustic sound of quality wooden instruments evolves and improves over time. Yamaha developed its patented Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) treatment to recreate this effect in new instruments. A.R.E. is an innovative process that precisely controls temperature, humidity and pressure to transform the molecular structure of the wood — without the use of chemicals. The result is a refined property that gives the wood a maturity well beyond its actual age. The SX Series are the first pianos to incorporate A.R.E., generating uniquely warm, deep and expressive instruments.

Tradition into the Future

At Yamaha, inspiration is born from the blending of traditional craftsmanship, exceptional artistry and modern innovation. The SX Series represents an inspired and evolved approach to premium piano building with exclusively designed components and patented Acoustic Resonance Enhancement treatment. The result is a profound piano experience with an expanded natural tonal palette. Whether on stage, in a conservatory or at home, the Yamaha SX Series produces a rich sound that will inspire players and enchant audiences.
