A grand piano in a great-sounding venue is magnificent. A pure piano tone, responsive keyboard and charming ambience give an experience like no other.

All pianos in the range feature 324 different tones. These span from distinctive European and American grand piano sounds, through to electric piano and organ tones. PureAcoustic Ambience is across the range, giving you a choice of large and small space ambience effects. They also come equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, making these appealing options to replace your hi-fi and improve your home.


Roland LX708

The LX708 is the range-topping flagship model of the series. Designed for the most discerning pianists who require a truly professional sound and feel. Its tall cabinet means it stands out from the rest of range. The opening lid adds an authentic charm, and gives a subtle change in tonal character.

The keyboard itself is Roland’s own Hybrid Grand Keyboard. This uses slightly longer keys than found on other digital pianos, which gives a softer and more delicate action. Durability is assured thanks to their modern design, and you will feel a great balance of pressure, momentum and movement whilst playing. The LX708 even reproduces the resonant vibrations that occur in a real grand piano! This is truly an authentic and exciting reproduction of a grand piano playing experience.

Taking all things into account; from the sound of the hammers on the strings to the cabinet resonance, all reproduced with warmth and crystal clarity. And what’s more, connect your music device via Bluetooth and you’ve got yourself a serious contender to replace the hi-fi.

Roland LX706

The LX706 is the mid-range option in the series. This offers a great balance between features, size and importantly price. Roland have developed the LX706 to be a home-friendly option, with a more compact cabinet. It still looks great, and would make a luxurious addition to your living space without completely taking over the space.

The keyboard is the most important part of a piano! The LX706 again uses the 88-key Hybrid Grand Keyboard from Roland, albeit without the vibration feedback features. This gives you a delightfully subtle playing experience with exceptional response and feel. The inviting feeling of playing this piano is what’s going to keep you coming back day after day.

The LX706 streamlines the speaker setup from the LX708 and features six speakers equipped with the Acoustic Projection System. This still gives a powerful and flexible sound, suitable for any musical scenario. Each of the three pairs of speakers is optimised to provide the best possible sound reproduction across the whole piano’s dynamic range.
