Polished Ebony mini grand case cabinet

The gorgeous polished ebony cabinet is finished with an attractive back frame, rim and suspended pedal assembly. A hinged adjustable lid completes the grand piano look – and allows the rich soundboard resonance to fill the room.

Natural Wood (NW) Keyboard

The special Natural Wood keyboard uses real-wood white keys, to reproduce as closely as possible the experience of playing an actual acoustic grand piano. The authentic touch and feel of the keys goes far beyond existing electronic keyboards, realistically recreating the hardness of the keys, the balance between the weight of the key and hammer, and the characteristic weight gradations of the keys – heavy in the low end, light in the high register – to make you feel as if you’re playing a real grand piano. Moreover, this specially crafted keyboard lets you use techniques only possible on grand pianos, such as playing the same note successively and having the sounds blend smoothly even without use of the damper pedal, or playing the same key quickly and having perfect articulation without the sound cutting off unnaturally.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling

The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates sound close to that of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expressive quality and potential becomes.

Instrumental Active Field Control (iAFC)

This sophisticated technology outputs sound picked up by built-in microphones together with the Clavinova’s internal sound through rear speakers, making automatic adjustments to create a richer sound that best matches the acoustic characteristics of the room you’re playing in. It also uses signal processing to reproduce an authentic damper effect. When the damper pedal is pressed, it delivers discretely sampled overtones, harmonics and resonance to recreate the warm and spacious sound.

Selection of Voices

Choose from a large selection of other stereo-sampled musical instrument sounds to perform with. These sounds provide added realism for more music playing enjoyment.

128-note Extended Polyphony (max.)

Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument “steals” notes to make room for new notes. A maximum of up to 128-notes can be played at once.


Insert a USB flash memory in the USB TO DEVICE terminal on the instrument and save or load user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device.

USB TO HOST Terminal

Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer recorded parts with different instrument sounds – all from a single instrument.
