Is it possible to add 2 external speakers to Roland LX-706 for them to sound along with 6 built-in ones as one 8-speakers system?

Yes. The manual says ...
Output jacks (L/Mono, R)
Here you can connect external speakers via cables that are equipped with mono 1/4” plugs (commercially available).
Since this lets the sound of the piano be louder, it is useful when you are playing in front of a large number of people."

Oh... I am far away from this piano now, so, couldn't watch the manual.
I just wonder if i is possible to buy a couple of speakers and somehow make LX-706 sound closer to that of LX-708, in terms of frequencies balance, richness etc.

The only way to know is to try.
But I wonder ... would it be difficult to try? Are there many stores where you live ... in northeast Siberia?!
(How's the weather up there?)

His piano isn't in northeast Siberia. But PSA33, does this mean you've been dreaming about your piano from far away? 😊

Have you compared LX706 and the 708 side by side and if so how would you describe the sound difference?

I have only heard 706 and felt the sound seemed to come from a distance behind the piano. A pair of front-facing speakers should fix this.

Mac, I think you need 1 or 2 amplifiers between the o/p and the speaker(s) . . .go on, now just tell me I been doin' this all wrong, all these years . . . .

Or you could just use active monitors instead of passive speakers, and have amps built into the speaker.

Mac's been around a while so I'm sure he meant powered speakers.

Some keyboards are designed so the internal speakers are muted when line out is used but you should be able to go in and set for them to stay on.

Actually my first foray into piano amplification was with a set of un-powered speakers, driven by a suitable A/V receiver. The latter provided 5 channels ... enough for my 4 speakers.

I've since switched to monitors. So you might say I swing both ways.

Note: peterws was surely just poking fun, right?

If you're new to the business, how'd you know? Many guitar speaker cabinets have no amps. But there's another point here.
My lappie outputs audio from the h/ph socket; most do the same. And the volume, if amplified at that point, is much less than when I feed said output into "audio in" on piano, and use the lineouts from that to the same amplification. There's a large gain.

Qiute right, Tyrone smile
Looks like I'm gonna leave Udachny in the end of January. This work takes too much strength from me. I always thought of job as of a basement for life, but not life itself. If a job takes too much effort and leaves no energy for life - hobby, reading books etc. - I don't need such a job.

I've always thought jobs like yours take a lot out of a person, and here you've confirmed it. I hope life after Udachny is more to your liking.
