If you could dream up the ultimate digital piano, what would it look like? Most likely, it would be very close to the Yamaha CVP-709, their best Clavinova to date. From its gorgeous 8.5 inch LCD touchscreen display to the over 1200 voices with super articulation features, hundreds of accompaniment styles from all around the world, and instant song creating capabilities, the CVP-709 is packed with more features than you can imagine, making it the best digital piano for professionals and beginners alike.

World Class Sound

Two world class pianos are contained within the CVP Clavinova. The CFX, Yamaha’s finest concert grand, selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition, and the Imperial from Bösendorfer, one of the oldest piano manufacturers in the world and a brand held in high esteem by pianists throughout its long history. These renowned pianos are characterized by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness.

Both of these superb pianos’ Voices are featured by name in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician and having the sound from each key recorded individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these outstanding instruments.

With Clavinova, you can choose from and enjoy the amazing digital reproductions of the exquisite beauty tone that only the Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial can deliver.

Superb playability and feel

NWX (Natural Wood X) keyboards are created using Yamaha’s unrivaled expertise acquired through more than a century of crafting fine acoustic pianos. The material used for NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of the tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards.

The NWX keyboard also features an escapement mechanism that reproduces the feel of an acoustic piano as it goes through the let-off and drop of the hammer when a key is played very softly. The action has been designed in such a way that the escapement is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.

Synthetic ivory keytops reproduce the tactile surface of the ivory keyboards once used in acoustic pianos. It features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of performing, while retaining the ideal texture and feel.

Strike with the perfect balance.

Counterweights are embedded in the keys to balance the weight of the hammers and offer more precise control when playing delicately at low volumes. The Clavinova features a carefully-adjusted set of these individual counterweights for improved playability when playing pianissimo and quicker key return in rapid passages.

New Speaker innovations by Yamaha include Spruce Cones and Twisted Flare Ports

Drawing from its experience in building both acoustic pianos and high-end speakers, Yamaha CVP-709 speaker cones use pulp from the same spruce wood used to make acoustic piano sound boards.The result is a more natural, piano-like attack to the sound that is more piano-like when you play the keys.

The Twisted Flare Port, a new Yamaha technology, offers a clearer bass sound. The flared and gently twisted shape evenly diffuses the air flow through the port. Compared to a conventional port, the Twisted Flare Port reduces air turbulence noise, contributing to clear and accurate low frequency reproduction.
