I have called my piano dealer in France today. He said me that new CLP700 should be available in September. No more information, and no more about date of announcement.

Yikes! Those prices!
6800 AUD for black CLP785
8100 AUD for PE
8500 AUD for white

I know those are Australian dollars, so ...
4695 USD for black
5592 USD for PE
5868 USD for white

And a 900 USD premium for PE!

Is it because of the generally high cost of imports in Aussie-land?
Or is Yamaha trying to tell us to buy an AG instead?
Because the NU1X competes in that zone, and the N1X isn't that much more money.

Kept the grandtouch action as expected... And is it now fully modelled?

I must say.. It doesn't sound great in the video...

And those prices listed at Better Music are lower than the Yamaha (Australia) RRP too.

I don't think it is fully modelled when they specifically talk about samples... thankfully.

What even? I would just buy an AvantGrand for those prices if I had the money.


Finally bought the P515

Yamaha would make a big mistake selling in lime or any other of those ridiculous colors...

I would highly prefer them to make a Green/Purple Clavinova! I would paint the walls purple and buy a green piano bench... i'm sure that'd look wonderful. smile

Seems like the only real upgrade from the 600 series is the binaural sampling for Bösendorfer.

They say new samples. Maybe resampled everything? Some modeling is mentioned “grand expression modeling” (“reproduces a diverse array of tonal variations enriching the playing experience”) but hard to know what it means. Maybe just the VRM, but VRM is mentioned separately. Maybe some round-robin sampling techniques to vary samples and create variations in otherwise same velocities?

I must say the upgrade seems a little bit dissapointing... Maybe just hearing them in person would change our minds smile AS Beowulf mentioned, Bosendorfer binaural sampling seems the only real upgrade. I am so amazed that they didn't listen at all to people complaining about the grand touch action..

Criticism is welcomed since it helps improving and going forward!

RGE is now RGE2.

And other such "improvements".

I guess we won't know what really changed until Yamaha makes the usual video of Peter Baartmans looking at the wrong camera and explaining and demonstrating it.

(I have nothing against Peter B.)

And they added the fortepiano. Roland has had "historical pianos" for years already.

It looks like their sound finally has the air in the treble and is cleaner than previous series. Video shows nothing than empty stupid marketing babble, which is telling nothing to noone...

The GrandTouch-S on the CLP-745 is rather intriguing. I'm guessing the S means small and they are the GrandTouch but with shorter key sticks? smile

Another thing, why does Yamaha continue to make plastic black keys? I believe the other manufacturers all have full wooden keys on their premium lines.
