    Afternoon Dom, The N3X has been delivered and installed successfully. A bit stressful for me beforehand but the men were professionals and knew what they were up to which was a relief. And the piano itself looks and sounds wonderful. Thanks very much for making the whole process easy. It really makes a difference, particularly with most things being online and so automated nowadays. The delivery men didn t know about the N1 pick-up but took it anyway. They had a bit of trouble getting it out of the house and a certain amount of dismantling was required, so I hope you receive all the bits and pieces safely. I also included the manual and the long keyboard cloth. Thanks again and a very happy Christmas to you! David

What we think of the Yamaha AvantGrand N3X grand piano

New for Winter 2016, the Yamaha AvantGrand N3X is the flagship Yamaha digital hybrid instrument and is simply extraordinary. Building on the inherent quality of the outgoing N3, the new N3X has been re-engineered to include new piano samples from both Yamaha's CFX model and the Bosendorfer Imperial, along with a specially designed speaker system to perfectly mirror the position of the microphones in the piano that was sampled from. The N3X also benefits from a wider sound pallet than the N3 with additional electric piano and harpsichord voices. As with the outgoing model there is a Tactile Response System to send vibrations through the keys, a soundboard resonator and Ivorite keytops for a more luxurious and tactile touch. All of this is encased in a high quality, exquisitely designed cabinet with a soft closing keyboard fall.

Experience the response and feel of an authentic acoustic action

To express yourself musically, you need to form a physical bond with your instrument. In the case of the AvantGrand series, it starts with the keys. Real wooden keys with a comfortable touch, thanks to Ivorite® keytops that look and feel just like natural ivory. Then comes the all-important key action, which the AvantGrand series has inherited from Yamaha’s esteemed concert 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.

Two world-class grand pianos in one

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 new AvantGrand N3X, 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 warm and subtle Vienna tone. Either way, the lifelike sounds of the AvantGrand N3X allow you to explore the outer reaches of your expressive imagination.

Evolving the sonic spectrum

The AvantGrand series takes a unique approach to reproducing the sound of an acoustic grand piano. When capturing the original source sounds from a specially selected full concert grand, Yamaha technicians took samples from four different positions across the soundboard: left, right, center, and rear. Compared to conventional left-and-right channel (stereo) recording, this yielded wonderfully rich and authentic results. To make the most of this four-channel source sound, AvantGrand pianos employ Yamaha’s Spatial Acoustic Speaker System—a four-point speaker configuration that allows AvantGrand pianos to deliver faithful three-dimensional recreations of the original instruments. For the N3X, speaker placement mirrors the four recording positions on the source piano.

Digital technology that resonates with you

In addition to the four-channel Spatial Acoustic Speaker System, the AvantGrand features a flat-panel Soundboard Resonator located beneath the music rest and spanning the width of the instrument. This component allows for a more subtle reproduction of the buildup of sound that you feel when playing an acoustic grand piano. It works by using an oscillating transducer to transmit vibrations to the flat-panel soundboard, giving a realistic sound response that is especially evident in the upper key range.

Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM)

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 AvantGrand N3X through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from
