The DGB1K, Yamaha’s most compact and affordable grand, is a popular choice for locations where space is somewhat limited, with a full resonant tone comparable to that of many substantially larger models. The Yamaha Enspire is the latest generation of Disklavier pianos. All features of the Enspire series are completely controllable with your Apple or Android smart device, and it comes pre-loaded ready to play with over 500 songs!
The Yamaha Baby Grand
Yamaha designers, engineers and craftsmen were challenged to bring out the expressive tone, subtle colors and dynamics of a conservatory grand from a more compact instrument. The GB1K and GC Series put the unmistakable sound of a Yamaha grand piano in more places, and in reach of more people, than ever before.
The Yamaha Disklavier
Disklavier is the modern version of the “player piano”. Disklavier pianos are true acoustic pianos that incorporate fiber-optic sensing systems, high-performance solenoids, and state-of-the-art computer technology. These pianos can very accurately record piano performances and playback with all of the expression and nuance of the original performance. These instruments have many capabilities that provide a wide range of entertainment and educational uses.
5' Disklavier ENSPIRE Baby Grand Piano
The GB1K Yamaha Disklavier ENSPIRE baby grand piano packs all of Disklavier's premium features into a compact and affordable cabinet. It can teach you to play hit songs simply by wiggling the key you're supposed to play and waiting for you to play it. It can also record your music and send it to The Cloud - allowing you to share it with friends, family members, followers or music schools around the world.
It can connect to almost 40 XM-style internet radio stations - creating a custom "Disklavier Radio" experience for your home or business. It can also connect to Disklavier TV and play LIVE (or on demand) concerts by A-list musicians in your living room! You can even connect your iPhone wirelessly with Bluetooth® and record your own music videos! With all these powerful features, it's easy to see why we call Yamaha Disklavier "The Ultimate Piano."
Yamaha Disklavier pianos are the only player pianos that can self-calibrate. Thanks to their auto-sensing system, they are able to detect subtle changes in the piano's wood action and automatically compensate for them. Other player pianos require regular adjustments by professional technicians to do this.
Technologically Discreet, Acoustically Elegant
A streamlined control panel allows for simple tactile control while remaining hidden from view, providing the elegant look one would expect from a finely crafted Yamaha acoustic piano.
Wireless network connectivity and seamless compatibility with mobile devices, smartphones and computers allows intuitive access to all of the instrument’s exclusive content and unique capabilities.
Thousands of Performances In One Masterpiece
The Disklavier ENSPIRE allows you to revel in whatever music suits your mood or occasion, from classical solo piano or concerto selections to your favorite jazz or pop songs on piano – accompanied by audio and vocals. An easy-to-use and intuitive UI design provides direct access to 500 built-in songs* and thousands performances that can be downloaded directly to the instrument from the Yamaha MusicSoft online store.
Exclusive Streaming Services
In addition, the ENSPIRE also offers revolutionary streaming radio services, allowing you to discover and enjoy thousands of piano performances in the comfort of your own home. Yamaha Piano Radio gives you instant access to over 30 channels of 24-hour streaming piano music.
*Built-in songs include 380 piano solo songs (PianoSoft Solo), 72 songs with instrumental accompaniments (PianoSoft Plus), and 48 songs with audio backing (PianoSoft Audio).
Every Note, Every Nuance
The Disklavier ENSPIRE is the only piano that can truly reproduce every nuance of a piano performance, precisely recreating all of the details that other player pianos cannot. For example, a player's key release timing controls the exact timing of each individual damper coming down on the string and contributes to the overall musical message that the pianist is trying to convey. Other player systems rely on predetermined programming to control the release of the piano keys, which results in every key releasing at the exact same speed during playback. This programming equates to half of the original performance being altered, which means half of the human element of the piano performance is removed. The Disklavier, by contrast, can reproduce all articulations of the performance, including the speed by which a key is released, meticulously reproducing what even other high-end systems cannot. Couple these unmatched reproducing capabilities with advanced AccuPlay DSP technology, and you have a piano that not only recreates every nuance of the original performance, but is intelligent enough to verify and adjust itself during playback to ensure accurate performance reproduction.
Inspired By Technology, Powered By Performance
Extremely accurate recording functions allow teachers and students to critique recorded performances - providing new ways for students to enhance their musical development. Proprietary video sync technology gives users the ability to create, archive and share an acoustic piano driven visual performance using just the piano and a video camera.
The Sound of Innovation
Yamaha SILENT Piano™ technology allows you to listen, learn and play without being disturbed or disturbing others. Utilizing a unique sampling technique that replicates the interaural characteristics of the human ear, the Disklavier ENSPIRE binaurally recreates the sound, presence and resonance of a Yamaha CFX Concert Grand from the player’s position through headphones. This innovative technology is built into every ENSPIRE ST and PRO model Disklavier, giving you increased flexibility and more opportunities to enjoy your piano.
Artistic Excellence In Your Living Room
Disklavier ENSPIRE features popular, award-winning and legendary Yamaha artists such as Sarah McLachlan, Bob James, and Jamie Cullum*. These performances are not simply a rendition of the artist’s songs, but exclusive performances by the actual artists themselves, recorded specifically for ENSPIRE. Experience the genuine touch, nuance and emotion as the instrument recreates a precise portrayal of the artist’s intentions.
*Songs you can enjoy with audio (PianoSoft Audio) are totally 48 songs. And 13 of them are by Yamaha artists such as Bob James, Jamie Cullum, and Sarah McLachlan.
