What we think of the Yamaha CLP685 digital piano

The new flagship Yamaha Clavinova CLP685 digital piano has to be seen to be believed. Yamaha's new GrandTouch keyboard with linear weighting and counterweights creates a truly authentic grand piano playing experience and coupled with the sound of Yamaha's CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grands has the sound to match the authenticity of the action. Clever modelling techniques allow Yamaha to carefully reproduce the natural resonances of an acoustic instrument, and once put through the CLP685's powerful speaker system the sound quality is simply stunning. The elegantly cabinet is styled to look just like an acoustic upright, even including a soft-closing lid as found on their more expensive upright piano models. With Bluetooth connectivity, 16 track sequencer and an enormous selection of instrument voices this is a wonderfully capable instrument, ideal for musicians of any ability and the perfect choice of digital piano. Offering a more powerful speaker system, a more natural touch than the CLP675 and an XG voice bank of 480 sounds for recording and playback this is a worthwhile upgrade over the CLP675 and is on display in our Haslemere showroom.
