Playing an expressive piano at a great-sounding venue feels incredible. The purity of the piano tone. The responsiveness of the keyboard. And the ambience of the room that further enhances the sound. But instead of just imagining how it would feel, why not find out for yourself? Roland’s new LX700 piano series recreates this immersive playing experience with superior sound and peerless expression, housed within refined, elegant cabinet designs that invite you to perform. But while the sound and action are worthy of a high-end traditional instrument, Roland’s digital expertise lets you go much further. Maybe you’ll discover the unique atmosphere of a world-class concert hall or studio (even when using headphones). You could explore the distinctive tonal qualities of European or American-style grand pianos, relayed through our powerful Acoustic Projection multi-speaker systems. Or you may be inspired to play more often with Roland’s unique Piano Every Day app. Play a piano in the LX700 series and you’ll quickly find there’s a lot to love; getting started is easy - stopping is much harder.
If you’ve got high expectations of piano tone, the LX700 series is designed to satisfy. Even at the most basic level – the way the sound is created – the LX range stands apart. There’s the choice of two world-class pianos in one, each with remarkable tonal character that you won’t find anywhere else, and a powerful speaker system that’ll give you goosebumps. If you prefer the finer things when it comes to playing music, every model in the LX700 series is a sound investment.
Tone is a priority for any serious pianist. The rich sound of a grand piano is created by a multitude of physical interactions; keys are pressed, hammers strike, strings resonate, and sound emanates. These and many other elements all contribute to the final sound that reaches the player. Roland’s entirely new PureAcoustic Piano Modeling uses advanced technology to reproduce the interactions within each of these stages, resulting in a beautifully rich sound that, until now, could only come from a grand piano.
Roland’s PureAcoustic Piano Modelling technology digitally recreates the way acoustic pianos create sound; the key is pressed, the hammer strikes the string, the string resonates within the cabinet – before many other elements shape the final sound. These elements interact to produce complex tonal characters, while the resonance alters in response to the number of notes being played, their register, and how the damper pedal is being pressed. In the hands of the right player, an unlimited level of expression can be achieved, and the LX-700 series puts all of this, and more, right at your fingertips.
Most digital pianos use ‘sampling’ technology, which records the individual notes from an acoustic piano and combines them to deliver the final sound. This approach results in a limited range of expression, similar to when animation is composed by still images. Roland takes a different approach, producing the sound using advanced digital modeling technology that recreates the process of piano-tone-generation in real-time. It’s so accurate that your expression and touch is captured as you perform, and reflected onto the tone, resulting in a beautifully rich sound that compels you to play.
Even experienced pianists need fresh inspiration. The LX700 series includes two completely different piano models; a classic European grand with a rich, deep tonal character, and an American grand that emphasizes clarity and brightness. This approach goes far beyond the typical sound variations found on conventional digital pianos. Think of it as owning two world-class pianos, representing two distinct-but-complementary sides of the piano’s tonal spectrum. You can even customize the sound so it’s exactly how you like it.
Each LX700 model includes an Acoustic Projection System, reproducing the rich, room-filling sound of a grand piano in a great venue – without needing the floorspace. The flagship LX708 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a powerful amplifier, with each speaker fulfilling a specific role in delivering superior piano tone. The powerful cabinet speakers produce the all-enveloping main sound, while the top-mounted spatial speakers reproduce the resonance of the piano’s frame, projecting through the front C-shape wide aperture. Finally, the nearfield speakers and tweeters project the sounds you’re most likely to notice, including dramatic, dynamic overtones and even the noise of the hammers hitting the strings through the keyboard section. The sound can be made even clearer by opening the top lid.
As the flagship of Roland’s LX700 series, the LX708 recreates all the pleasures of playing a traditional grand piano in a great live venue. Standing out among the LX range with its tall, commanding cabinet and a lid that opens for optimum sound projection, this luxurious instrument makes a bold statement in your home. And with its powerful eight-speaker system ready to fill your home with music, the LX708 is the ultimate choice for discerning players.
There’s no mistaking the LX708. Standing out from the LX series with its taller cabinet, one-piece side panels and an openable lid that reveals a subtly different tonal flavour, this luxurious flagship model is designed to draw your gaze and attract your fingers. Classic and timeless – but with a twist – it’s an instrument that makes a strong presence in any room, without shouting. Available in polished ebony, polished white and charcoal.
The LX708’s Hybrid Grand Keyboard has a longer key action compared to most digital pianos. Because the key action is longer, the pivot point of each key is set further back, so you don’t need to press harder the further up the key you play. The white keys combine sleek wooden sides with a durable inner frame for maintenance-free reliability. And when playing, you’ll feel the ideal balance of pressure, momentum and return movement, along with smooth vertical travel. The premium LX708 even reproduces the physical vibrations that resonate through a grand piano’s keyboard, while the addition of pedals that enable a variety of advanced techniques makes this an authentic and thrilling piano experience.
One of the thrills of playing a concert grand in a great venue is how the sound seems to fill the room – so it’s frustrating if your home piano sounds small and lifeless by comparison. The flagship LX708 features the most impressive Acoustic Projection System in the range, with a four-way, eight-speaker setup driven by a powerful amplifier. The eight speakers are split into four pairs, with each pair optimised to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano’s dynamic range – even down to the noise as the hammers strike the strings, or the resonance of the cabinet as the sound reverberates through the piano’s body. When you want to fill your home with rich piano sound, the LX708 is the ultimate choice.
Each model in the LX700 series offers a different combination of cabinet design, keyboard, pedals and the number of onboard speakers. But regardless of which LX700 model you choose, many of the headline features are standard across the range. For example, Roland’s PureAcoustic Piano Modelling and PureAcoustic Ambience technology is available on all three instruments, along with the European and American piano models and the additional sounds including electric pianos, organs and orchestral. You also get convenient features like Bluetooth audio, Twin Piano mode, metronome and the option to use headphones to play in private, along with the unique C-shape aperture on the front panel that enables natural sound projection.
