Experience Pure Performance
Feels Just Like an Acoustic Piano
Featuring a sophisticated upright piano mechanism that captures every delicate movement, the NU1XA reacts faithfully to the nuances of your playing – from soft trills to repeated notes. And with its keyboard made of real wood, which provides a sold, natural response, you’ll feel just like you’re playing an acoustic piano.
Remarkably Detailed Sound
The NU1XA introduces our newly developed Articulation Sensor System. Using non-contact electromagnetic sensors and our proprietary algorithm, this unique system captures every intricate detail of your playing. With dual sensors on each key – one for the hammer and another for the key’s release – even the gentlest of expressions are perfectly represented.
The moment the hammer strikes the strings, a grand piano comes alive, filling the room with gorgeous sound. The NU1XA is designed to replicate this experience. Its innovative sound features upward-facing woofers, as well as tweeters with a newly designed horn structure. Together, they create an amazingly rich and realistic grand piano sound that expands as it resonates throughout the performance space.
