Compact digital/acoustic grands for your playing and listening enjoyment
Disklavier Playback Grand pianos incorporate most of the Mark III Series features, including piano/ensemble playback, comprehensive playback controls, a built-in amplified stereo speaker system and a full array of external connections.
Silent System™ playback
The DGP1 grand is also equipped with a playback-only version of the Yamaha Silent System, which lets you silence the piano's acoustic sound and hear digital reproduction instead. Whether you choose to listen in 'Quiet' mode through the internal speakers or in 'Silent' Mode via headphones, this enables you to set volume levels appropriate to the surroundings and enjoy Disklavier performance at any time.
The original Yamaha Disklavier, which made its debut back in 1986, introduced the world to the wonder of traditional pianos equipped with integrated digital electronics for recording, auto playback and more. Since that time, these computer-age 'player' pianos have evolved into instruments of truly remarkable capabilities. They can reproduce not only 'live' acoustic piano concerts, but instrumental ensemble music as well. And, they connect you to new opportunities offered by MIDI devices, personal computers and the Internet. Their unique combination of acoustic excellence and digital versatility has made them an increasingly popular choice of pianists, educators and music-lovers worldwide.
Now, as Yamaha pianos enter their second century, Yamaha is proud to introduce a major new evolution of the Disklavier line. The Disklavier Mark III Series grand pianos incorporate a host of new advances — from recent refinements in Yamaha acoustic grands to cutting-edge digital developments. The DGP1 playback grands include built-in stereo amplifiers and speakers making them superb, self-contained musical entertainment centers.
Now Equipped As Fully Self-Contained Musical Entertainment Systems!
Live' acoustic piano playback
Thanks to a sophisticated computer-controlled drive system, Disklavier pianos can reproduce piano performance on their own keys, pedals and strings, as if the original pianist were right there at the keyboard. Simply choose from the wide variety of Disklavier software to experience 'live' concerts by many of the world's best-known classical, jazz and popular artists, as well as a wide range of titles recorded by top studio musicians.
A variety of versatile playback controls provide added flexibility. You can adjust the playback volume to a level that you prefer, change the tempo without altering the pitch, transpose the performance into other keys without affecting the tempo, or repeat any selection — individual songs, specific sections or entire disks — as often as you like. With L/R-encoded software, you can separate left-and right-hand parts to play back one hand at a time, if desired, or play one part yourself while the Disklavier plays the other. And the wireless remote control unit gives you complete command over Disklavier performance from virtually anywhere in the room.
Digital/acoustic ensemble sound
An advanced Yamaha XG digital tone generator which lets Disklavier Mark III Series grands reproduce the sound of other instruments in conjunction with the piano, providing hundreds of realistic instrumental voices and variations. This makes it possible for you to host fully orchestrated Disklavier performances with up to 16 piano and ensemble parts. You can relax after work to the mellow sounds of a swinging jazz trio, for instance. Enjoy an intimate dinner with the romantic accompaniment of a chamber music ensemble. Or add excitement to parties and informal gatherings with the rousing renditions of big bands and popular groups.
New! Built-in amplified speakers
Incorporating their own stereo (60W + 60W) audio systems with dual two-way speakers, the new Mark III Series pianos can serve as totally self-contained musical entertainment systems. There's no complex setup; simply select the music you want to hear, press the PLAY button and sit back to enjoy the show. In addition to stand-alone ensemble performance, this feature also allows you to hear the digital piano in 'Quiet' Mode through the internal speakers, lowering the volume to a level appropriate to the circumstances. And, with the Disklavier's external connections, you can easily tie it into your home audio system, letting you route the sound through remote speakers and bring the concert to other rooms or even outdoors for parties on the patio.
Offering Unparalleled Opportunities For Musical Creativity And Enjoyment
Digital Quiet/Silent Mode flexibility
The Yamaha Silent System; technology, which lets you instantly cancel the acoustic piano sound and switch to digital piano tone generation. Allowing you to listen at lower volume in 'Quiet' Mode through the built-in speakers, or via the privacy of headphones in 'Silent' Mode, this makes it possible to enjoy the Disklavier at any time by selecting a sound level suitable to the time of day and the activities of those around you.
Sophistication made simple
The Disklavier is designed to be easy to use, with a multi-function LCD display and intelligently configured, intuitive controls. Utility functions handle formatting, copying, titling and other needs.
New! Expanded memory and programming features
Now with greatly expanded internal memory capacity, the Disklavier Mark III grands allow you to store a vast library of prerecorded songs for quick and easy access, as well as copy music between different recording media. Sixteen internal 'memory disks' let you group selections for specific moods or occasions, combine these groups in any order for continuous chain-play performance, and store up to nine different multi-disk programs for instant recall. A built-in calendar/clock/timer even makes it possible to program the Disklavier to play certain sets at certain times, for totally automatic, unattended operation, and 'time stamp' new recordings to facilitate future PC editing.
Versatile PC, MIDI and AUX connections
AUX connections let you amplify the Disklavier's sound via external audio equipment without the need for microphones or other equipment. The AUX In jacks also allow you to listen and play along with audio recordings through the Disklavier's own speakers or headphones. Essentially, the Disklavier's sound system is not just for Disklavier music
any audio device can share the instruments speakers.
The built-in PC interface lets you connect the Disklavier directly to your personal computer for an extended set of musical possibilities. Play the Disklavier from your PC keyboard and applications or download music files for playback on your Disklavier. With Yamaha's CBX MIDI driver installed, your PC essentially becomes your MIDI Song File jukebox!
Yamaha Servicebond™ Assurance Program
The Yamaha Servicebond Assurance Program is provided to the customer, without additional charge, 3-8 months after delivery of their piano. This service is a thorough check up and adjustment procedure to "rejuvenate" a piano after play-in and acclimation to its new environment. After 3-8 months or so of settling and becoming acclimatized, the piano will receive the benefit of a service visit to return it to the conditions specified by the manufacturer.
