The Roland HD708 digital upright piano makes a visual statement that will enhance you décor with its award-winning cabinet and fill your home with Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling and an 8-speaker sound system that will inspire and uplift all who experience it.
Sitting at the top of the LX700 range, the eye-catching LX708 digital upright piano features a multiple award-winning cabinet design, but what’s going on under the lid is even more impressive. Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology is as sonically stunning as the LX708 is visually, precisely modeling the sound and response of an acoustic piano down to the component level. Plus, it gives you custom control over the elements that comprise acoustic piano tone including cabinet, string, and soundboard resonance, hammer and key-off noise, and more. To envelop you in sonic nirvana, the LX708 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a powerful amplifier, with each speaker fulfilling a specific role in delivering superior piano tone. If you’re a night person, as many creative people are, you can still immerse yourself in sound without disturbing anyone, thanks to Roland’s Headphone 3D Ambience. With the advanced PHA-50 keyboard giving you the touch and feel of an ivory key bed, Bluetooth apps, and onboard tutorial features, you’ll never be short on inspiration or opportunities to improve your technique. Plus, it can give you the tone of a grand piano and the ambience of 11 world-class acoustic environments.
Streamlined, sophisticated design that invites you to sit and play
A great-sounding piano must look good too. From the tall-yet-slim cabinet to the elegant front legs and sophisticated curves based on the design concept of Roland’s flagship LX Series, the LX708 draws you in and compels you to start playing. Each finish has been carefully selected and meticulously manufactured, so you can choose a piano that truly looks at home in your living room. Also, the cabinet is designed to deliver the best possible sound, regardless of where the piano is situated. The unique C-shape aperture on the front panel that enables natural sound projection. To suit your décor, the LX708 available in polished ebony, polished white, 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. The latest being their SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology, which offers unlimited polyphony and supremely realistic piano sound brought to life by the expressive touch of the PHA-50 keyboard. The combination of these advances provides a playing experience that will satisfy all, from beginner to accomplished pianist.
There’s no doubt that a great sound makes you play better. That’s why Roland engineers chose to refine modeling technology over sampling. The LX708’s SuperNATURAL technology captures the essence of an acoustic piano in every note. Unlike sample-based digital pianos, Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology replicates the entire sound creation process of an acoustic piano—including the combination of notes played, their resonance, and the interaction between myriad elements—for a rich, complex sound that responds to your touch.
Perfectly matched to the sound engine, the new PHA-50 keyboard features hybrid construction with wood and ivory-feel materials, plus an integrated pin in each key for stability. This provides truly authentic playability and consistent feel that’s impervious to normal temperature and humidity changes, eliminating a costly maintenance issue that’s common with traditional piano keys. The LX708’s Hybrid Grand Keyboard has a longer key action than most digital pianos. 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. When playing, you’ll feel the ideal balance of pressure, momentum, and return movement, along with smooth vertical travel. Going a step further, as Roland always does, the LX708’s keys even reproduce the physical vibrations that resonate through a grand piano’s keyboard, while the addition of continuous-detection damper, soft, and sustenuto pedals enable a variety of advanced techniques for authentic piano experience.
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. The LX708 features the most impressive Acoustic Projection System in the range, with a four-way, eight-speaker setup driven by a powerful amplifier. The eight speakers are split into four pairs, with each pair optimized to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano’s dynamic range – even down to the noise as the hammers strike the strings, or the resonance of the cabinet as the sound reverberates through the piano’s body. However, it doesn’t stop there. The LX708 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 LX708 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 LX708 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 LX708 makes practice a pleasure, not a chore, ensuring that you’ll stay motivated and your piano skills will constantly improve.
