Disklavier

The world's most advanced piano.


In 1982, it started with a simple idea. To craft an acoustic piano with a record and playback system unlike any other. More than 30 years of continuous innovation has created an acoustic piano that can faithfully reproduce every nuance of a performance and stream it, wirelessly, anywhere in the world. Including your living room. It’s no wonder the Yamaha Disklavier has become the reproducing piano everyone is trying to reproduce.


  • No two artists are alike. Disklavier features two patented systems that work together to recreate the intangible, human variations that other reproducing pianos can’t. Our Optical Sensor System continuously measures the subtle movements of each key, hammer and pedal, while our AccuPlay Technology interprets every detail in real time and adjusts to faithfully reproduce each note.
  • The subtle ways an artist presses and releases each key determines the quality of sound. Disklavier is the only reproducing piano that measures both key attack and release, capturing the articulation of every performance, with up to 1024 dynamic levels of key and hammer velocities and 256 unique pedal positions.
  • Record recitals, concerts or rehearsals, sync them to video and play them back on your piano. Then save them and share with family and friends. Disklavier makes every live performance come to life.
  • The world’s most advanced piano is remarkably easy to use. Disklavier connects wirelessly with your smartphone, tablet or laptop for quick access to the ENSPIRE Controller app.
  • Disklavier faithfully recreates exclusive performances from Yamaha artists including Sarah McLachlan, Bob James and Jamie Cullum as if they were sitting at your piano. Plus their band, ensemble or symphony will be right there with them in the fully-integrated speakers. Download thousands of performances in all genres of music, from solo piano to piano accompanied by world renowned philharmonic orchestras.
  • Yamaha Piano Radio and Disklavier TV let you stream any one of 30 channels of music and hundreds of videos directly to your piano, 24/7/365. And it’s the only service that streams live performances from the concert stage directly to your living room.
  • Each Yamaha Disklavier is conceived, designed and built from the ground up, fashioned by Yamaha master craftsmen in the same factory where our acoustic pianos are made, and using the same time-honored, traditional methods.
  • Disklavier easily connects to your home theater system, recording software and the MusicCast wireless ecosystem to make all the devices you love do more things you love.
