To suit your décor, the LX706 is available in polished ebony, dark rosewood, and charcoal.
No stranger to innovation, starting with the world’s first touch-sensitive electronic piano in 1974, and the first to offer the ability to bend audio with VariPhrase technology in 2,000, Roland has been racking up the firsts ever since. For the latest and greatest in authentic piano modeling, the LX706 features Roland’s PureAcoustic Piano Modeling and PureAcoustic Ambience technology. Along with the European and American piano models, you get additional sounds including electric pianos, organs, and orchestral instruments. You also get convenient features, such as Bluetooth audio, Twin Piano mode for instruction, a metronome, and the option to use headphones for private practice—an essential feature for apartment dwellers. Not just limited to digital technologies, the LX706 has a unique C-shape aperture on the front panel that enables natural sound projection.
erfectly matched to the sound engine, the The LX706’s Hybrid Grand Keyboard has a longer key action compared to most digital pianos. Because the key action is longer, the pivot point of each key is set further back, so you don’t need to press harder the further up the key you play. The white keys combine sleek wooden sides with a durable inner frame for maintenance-free reliability. And when playing, you’ll feel the ideal balance of pressure, momentum and return movement, along with smooth vertical travel, while the addition of continuous-detection damper, soft, and sustenuto pedals enable a variety of advanced techniques makes this an authentic and thrilling piano experience.
When we say that a digital keyboard can satisfy both amateur and professional, we’re not just talking about sound quality. As any classical pianist will tell you, escapement, s an essential feature that without it, would disqualify a digital piano as an option.
Escapement, also known as “let-off,” is what allows the hammer to be released (escape) after it strikes the string, even if the key is still depressed. Without this “single escapement,” the hammer would be held against the string (muting its vibrations) for as long as the key was depressed. What’s unique about the escapement is the feel it has when you press a key. It has a specific “clicking” feel when a key is depressed about halfway down, which is an integral characteristic of acoustic piano action.
The escapement action and clicking feel, typically found only on high-end digital pianos, is a feature found all Roland digital pianos, regardless of price point, which makes the LX706 that much more of an incredible value—and enables experienced pianists to seamlessly transition from acoustic to Roland digital pianos, and conversely, students who learned on digital pianos to play acoustic pianos without having to alter their technique.
The sound of an acoustic piano doesn’t occur in isolation. A major component is the reverberance of the acoustic space that joins with the piano’s sound. Much like singing in the bathroom, there’s nothing quite like the exhilaration you get from playing piano in a lively acoustic space as the sound reaches your ears from 360 degrees. On the other hand, living rooms, tend to be flat and unpredictable in their response, which in turn makes this grand instrument dull and lifeless.
With a more streamlined take on the LX708’s Acoustic Projection System, the LX706 is still powerful and flexible enough for any musical scenario, with a three-way, six-speaker layout. Each of the three pairs of speakers are optimized to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano’s dynamic range—right down to the noise the hammers make striking the strings, and the resonance of the cabinet as the sound reverberates through the piano’s body. Whether playing or streaming, you’ll hear your music with crystal-clear clarity.
However, it doesn’t stop there. The LX706 also has Roland’s PureAcoustic Ambience effects, which turns your room into your choice of six acoustic environments, including studio, lounge, concert hall, wooden hall, stone hall, and cathedral. When you want to fill your home with rich piano sound, the LX706 is the perfect choice.
Learning the piano is both a physical and mental acquisition that can prove challenging to adults and children alike. However, with a little dedication and the expanded educational features that the LX706 offers, you can boost your technique in ways that book-learning can’t provide. For example, there are 287 lessons, including Hannon and Czerny, while the Twin Piano mode allows a learner and teacher to sit side-by-side and play in the same key range. The built-in metronome promotes accurate timing, while the onboard recorder lets you capture what you’ve been working on to instantly evaluate your progress. There’s audio and MIDI playback from USB memory, plus integrated Bluetooth MIDI functionality that lets you wirelessly connect to apps, such as Roland’s Piano Partner 2, and also access digital sheet music, song libraries, and more. The Roland LX706 makes practice a pleasure, not a chore, ensuring that you’ll stay motivated and your piano skills will constantly improve.
