About the Technology

More than 30 years of continuous innovation has created an acoustic piano that can faithfully reproduce every nuance of a performance and stream it, wirelessly, anywhere in the world. Yamaha Disklavier pianos feature two patented systems that work together to recreate the intangible, human variations. The piano's Optical Sensor System continuously measures the subtle movements of each key, hammer and pedal, while the AccuPlay Technology interprets every detail in real-time and adjusts to faithfully reproduce each note.
