From the moment you sit down in front of a Kurzweil Digital Piano, you'll be impressed. Impressed not only by the look of the instrument and its authentic feel of the full 88-note weighted keyboard, but most of all, you'll be impressed by the sheer quality of the instrument — from its critically-acclaimed sample sounds upon which Kurzweil's entire heritage and reputation have been based to the clear, powerful, custom-designed sound system that is a unique and integral part of every Kurzweil Digital Piano.

Kurzweil Music Systems Inc. was founded in 1982 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA by Raymond Kurzweil, a world-leading expert in artificial intelligence who was inducted in U.S. National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2002, and is the recipient of 12 Honorary Doctorates and scores of technological rewards. Kurzweil, who is a talented musician, developed his synthesizer after a meeting with Stevie Wonder, who complained how synthesizers at that time did not reproduce the sound of musical instruments very well.
Kurzweil's line of digital pianos evolved from his work on music synthesizers, particularly his groundbreaking work in ARS (Asymmetrically Responsive Sampling), SSS (Signature Series Styles), and AII (Acoustic Instrument Imaging).
In 1990, Kurzweil sold his digital piano and synthesizer business to Young Chang. Today, Kurzweil digital pianos and synthesizers are sold in 55 countries worldwide and are used widely by both amateur and professional musicians, including Stevie Wonder. Its R/D facility and the original Kurzweil engineering team are located in Waltham, Massachusetts, while production and manufacturing are done in Korea.
