"Real Grand Expression" Sound, touch, pedals perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a
grand piano.
Real Grand Expression. This phrase defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is not only the
full realization of the sound, the touch and the pedals, but the application of technologies nurtured
by crafting acoustic pianos to perfectly integrate these three elements into a single piano. This piano produces that
exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. As you play, you will truly feel as
though you are playing a grand piano.

Exquisite sound
The tone of the finest concert grand pianos in the world
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 a brand held in high
esteem by pianists throughout its long history are renowned pianos characterized by distinctive
traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness. Both of these superb pianos'
Voices are featured in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician
with the sound from each key sampled individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of
these outstanding instruments.With your Clavinova, you can enjoy the exquisite beauty of the sought-after tone
that the CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial deliver.
Reproducing the Damper Resonance and deep reverberation of an acoustic piano
The Clavinova faithfully reproduces the sound of an acoustic piano utilizing features like String Resonance to
emulate the mellow tonal color that occurs when strings react to one another. The result is a beautiful tone with
rich, deep reverberation.In addition to the reverberation of the strings themselves, Damper Resonance reproduces
the broad, deep sound field of an acoustic piano. It also mirrors the tonal changes that result when a damper pedal
on a grand piano is depressed. It includes sounds such as those emitted from the key bed and emulates the
cumulative resonance that occurs when all of these sounds blend together.
Smooth tonal transformations perfectly matched to key pressure
Pianists can change the volume of the sound as well as its dynamics to achieve both mellow and
bright tones by simply changing the pressure they apply to the keys.The Clavinova features long,
carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano, reproduces them in rich detail and utilizes unique
Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions in response to the touch of the player.
From staccato to legato

superbly expressive sound that responds to the player's touch
Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology, Clavinova offers the crisp tone
heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing
the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist's playing.

Key-Off samples
The moment a pianist's fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the instrument's
tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute its sound. Key-Off samples features actual recordings of
these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle changes in the piano's sound, allowing for a more
realistic performance.
256-note polyphony
Play many notes simultaneously without any unwanted dropped notes.
Superb playability and feel
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards are created using Yamaha's unrivaled expertise
of wood acquired through more than a century of crafting fine pianos. Just as with
grand pianos, the material used for the NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has
been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments. Utilizing the
same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, NWX keyboard action reproduces the
touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. And
the three-sensor configuration accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard for a response and
feels very similar to that of a grand piano.The NWX keyboards also feature an escapement mechanism that
reproduces a slight clicking sensation near the bottom of the key dip, and they have been designed in such a way
that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Synthetic ivory keytops a pleasure to play even after hours of performance
Reproduces the gentle, tactile surface of the ivory keyboards once used in only the finest pianos. It features
highly-absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of performing, while retaining the
ideal texture and feel.

Full-body resonance, just like an acoustic piano
Similar to an acoustic piano, the Clavinova is calibrated carefully, with speaker positioning and body materials
checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. For a sound image that is very close to the grand
piano, these instruments feature Tone Escapement in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound
from the speakers to be projected to the listener's ears without being trapped inside the instrument.
2-way speakers
Dedicated drivers for mid- and high-frequency ranges provide astonishingly powerful sound.
Acoustic Optimizer Regulation to ensure a balanced tone
The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone.A new
technology springing from Yamaha's intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of the interiors of musical
instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver natural, smooth feel and tone across the entire keyboard.
Other features
Easy-to-use interface
An easy-to-read LCD and intuitive layout enable simple operation of your Clavinova, giving you
more time to focus on playing.

these exquisite reverbs to add depth and atmosphere to your sound and enjoy concert hall ambience and
spaciousness in the privacy of your own home.
IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control), perfect for playing at home
The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always
be able to play at high volume levels. Often at low volumes, both bass and treble may become
difficult to hear. To counter this, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which
adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level.
