The instruments from the Yamaha Avant Grand Serie are also known as "hybrid" piano's". Hybrid means that they combine features from both digital and acoustic piano's.

The series consists of the models NU1X, N1X, N2 and N3X. The N3X has the cabinet of a grand piano. The first 3 models have the cabinet of an upright piano. One of the most important characteristics is that these are essentially digital piano's equipped with a real acoustic action, that you also find in Yamaha's acoustic instruments.

To express yourself musically, you need to form a physical bond with your instrument. In the case of the Avant Grand series, it starts with real wooden keys with a comfortable touch. Then comes the all-important key action, which the Avant Grand series has inherited from Yamaha’s esteemed grand pianos. Beneath your fingers you sense the same precise weight and responsiveness, the same scope for expression. To capture every nuance of your performance, Yamaha employs a non-contact optical sensor system that doesn’t affect the feel or performance of the action in any way. Under each key is a continuous optical sensor that captures the speed and depth at which that key is depressed. An additional optical sensor affixed to each hammer shank measures the timing and strength of the hammer hitting the virtual “strings”. This information is instantly translated into a beautifully authentic sound reproduction. The more you play, the more you find yourself becoming one with the piano.

When it comes to judging piano tone, much depends on personal taste. To help you achieve the tonal palette you desire, Yamaha offers the choice of two world-class grand pianos in one—each with its own unique character to convey the emotion you want to express through a piece of music. At the touch of a button on the Yamaha Avant Grand N1X, you can opt for authentic sounds sampled either from a Yamaha CFX concert grand or from a Bösendorfer Imperial. As Yamaha’s flagship grand piano, the majestic CFX boasts a wide palette of tonal colors, from sparkling high notes to powerful bass tones. The legendary Bösendorfer, meanwhile, is renowned for its sonorous and rich Viennese sound. Either way, the lifelike sounds of the Yamaha Avant Grand N1X allow you to explore the outer reaches of your expressive imagination.

With the introduction of the Avant Grand, Yamaha ignited a revolution in the approach to sampling recording and playback of the notes of the actual acoustic piano. Treating the sound-board not simply as a point source of sound but as a plane, we took samples at four positions, adding optimum center and rear locations to the traditional left and right. Meanwhile, the Avant Grand’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 reproduce 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. This innovative configuration allows the instrument’s outstanding sound system to reproduce the nuances of each individual note. For even greater sonic accuracy, feature speaker layouts optimized for the size of the instruments.

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 Yamaha Avant Grand N1X through Virtual Resonance Modeling (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 Yamaha Avant Grand 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 Yamaha Avant Grand N1X features a damper pedal that recreates the subtle changes in resistance experienced when using a grand piano pedal. What’s more, the Yamaha Avant Grand 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.

Thanks to our advanced binaural sampling* technology, the sound you hear through your headphones is remarkably lifelike. This technology uses piano samples recorded by specialized 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. (*CFX Grand Voice only)

The Yamaha Avant Grand N1X embellishes any room with the unique, refined curves of an acoustic grand piano despite being a much more compact musical instrument. We have 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.
