What we think of the Yamaha NU1X AvantGrand hybrid upright piano

The Yamaha NU1X replaces the popular NU1 Hybrid Upright Piano, and bridges the gap between Yamaha's digital and acoustic piano offerings. While having all the benefits of a digital, such as lots of sounds, no maintenance, volume control, headphones and USB Audio recording, the NU1X also benefits from a real upright piano action for the most authentic upright digital piano feel possible. Yamaha's NU1X is the only hybrid digital piano on the market today to model the action of an upright piano, making it completely unique and unsurpassable. Its sound comes primarily from Yamaha's CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos, two of the world's finest instruments and along with their proprietary Virtual Resonance Modelling system sounds incredibly authentic. New improved features for the NU1X include an increased sound library to include more pianos and electric pianos, Binaural sampling on the CFX sound for improved playability through headphones and Bluetooth for connecting to your smart device. This can be used for recording, sheet music page turning apps and also for streaming your music through the piano so you can play along.
