The YUS5 is the top of the range YUS Series model, and while built on the same 131cm tall frame as the YUS3 it is a completely different animal. Designed to appeal to those who require grand piano performance but cannot accommodate one, the YUS5 benefits from the same Ivorite synthetic ivory and wood composite key coverings as the CX Series grand pianos, while longer keys than the YUS3 deliver a more 'grand-like' touch and response.
The YUS1 is the most refined 121cm tall piano that Yamaha produces, it is perfect for the more discerning amateur and an excellent size for the home.
First and foremost an acoustic piano, a TransAcoustic piano is a versatile tool which combines the best features of a digital piano with the inimitable resonance and feel of an acoustic instrument.
Specially positioned transducers transform the piano's soundboard into a natural loudspeaker, meaning you can practice at a lower volume without wearing headphones.
TransAcoustic pianos from Yamaha feature advanced technology, and have been equipped with a volume control feature. It is also possible to play silently through headphones and the new TransAcoustic technology will allow you to adjust your piano volume, so you can play without disturbing anybody.
Even at low volumes, the soundboard still vibrates so you can enjoy the physical sensation of natural acoustic sound as you play.
TransAcoustic technology employs a mechanism of resonance keyed by the soundboard through a digital tone generator. The initial sound created is small but is amplified by the soundboard and the entire body of the piano serves as the resonator. This creates a very realistic playing experience.
Although the sounds are created digitally, there is no need for a speaker unit. The included transducers prevent the hammers from striking the strings and convert the digital signals into vibrations which are then relayed to the soundboard. The soundboard then amplifies the vibrations and the sound reaching your ears is as rich as that of an acoustic piano.
Despite all the extra technologies that have been added to this range of TransAcoustic pianos, it is still a genuine acoustic instrument. Yamaha has created pianos that allow players to develop and express themselves with a rich sound and reliable quality.
The new TransAcoustic feature makes it possible to play with a true acoustic piano, or alternatively, switch on TransAcoustic mode and use the included volume control features to continue playing during anti-social hours.
With this new technology, your piano becomes a speaker so you don't have to wear headphones or use unwanted cables. Although the sound is being created digitally, the soundboard still vibrates and the strings still resonate so the feel of an acoustic piano is maintained.
This new range of TransAcoustic pianos is also equipped with SILENT Mode. Plug in your headphones and enjoy the realistic piano sounds at any time without disturbing anyone with a realistic experience which is enhanced with the binaural sampling.
Binaural sampling creates a truly spacial and immersive sound while you wear headphones. The piano sounds like it is in front of you rather than in your ears, which also reduces fatigue and enables you to practice for longer!
Sampling the sounds from two concert grand pianos, the Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial have been chosen for their harmonious tones which have been captured and faithfully reproduced for the purposes of the TransAcoustic technology.
These two world renowned concert grand pianos are joined by a long list of other keyboard instrument voices, including electric piano, harpsichord and organ.
Smart Pianist connects your iOS or Android device to the piano, either via USB or via the optional UD-WL01 wireless LAN adaptor to remotely control the instrument's sounds, control the record facility and metronome and even display music notation on screen. The app will also scan your iTunes library and produce a basic score so you can learn to play your favourite songs!
Unlike most silent systems, Yamaha's Silent and TransAcoustic systems are installed during the manufacturing process. Yamaha piano actions are designed to accommodate these systems, so you can be sure of the highest quality performance and reliability. Nothing has been compromised!
Yamaha offers all acoustic piano customers 5 years warranty on a new piano and 2-year warranty on included electronics as standard. However, if you register your piano with Yamaha to increase that to 10 years warranty on the piano and 5 years on electronics. This extended warranty ensures your investment is protected for added peace of mind.
