Just found this new LX708 youtube video from Japan.

Not much playing but shows the process of unpacking and moving this 240lbs single piece beast to new happy owners. Looks like they're moving an acoustic. lol

BTW, the bench is included by the manufacturer.

The dealer said they had one in stock and will call to schedule the delivery. Too bad I'm on a business trip Sun-Thurs; hopefully I can get it delivered next Friday.


Your price is inline with my price of $6900CAD + taxes. Includes bench, head phones and free delivery. Japan and parts of Europe have it good. $5000CAD equivalent.


I can relate to that. With crate it weighs 150kg. it took 5 person for us in order to climbing it at 2nd floor laugh funny day.

>>...The LX705 seems to be a slight adjustment of the range, with the successor to the HP605 (?) now being considered an LX 'luxury' piano.<<

Been through the whole thread and above very early extract hits topic I was most interested in. But no follow up. So...

The HP605 is now being labelled 'Discontinued' in some places (including here) and I was hoping its successor would appear within the next 2-3 months or so. However the audio spec for the HP605 seems superior to the new LX705. It has the 6 speaker system on HP605 that made it my choice over the 2 speaker HP603.

The LX705 has 4 speakers, with the 2 small ones just 2.5cm size vs HP605s' 4x 5cm.

So, following on from earlier comment above, does anyone think/know the LX705 is going to be HP605's successor? If so, why only 4 speakers will less overall power?

And if not, how can they upgrade HP605 with so little 'room' between it and the new LX models? With new modelling system and improved PHA-50 keyboard into HP605 successor would make it better than the LX705. Yes? No?

Thanks for any feedback on this.

PS. Have read a couple of posts about HP605 vs LX708 sound. Anyone compared HP605 to LX705?

I think it is far more than a slight adjustment to the HP6 range. If you play with headphones the speakers aren't going to be that important, but compare their output for a better idea.

As for the sound comparison, the 705 is the same as the 708 via the headphones. See

Yeah so sound engine is definitely better but I can't tell how speakers compare on both HP 605 and LX 705.

Yes. No contest on sound engine. I am quite sure the LX705 will sound better to most ears.

Looking at audio specs the HP605 and LX705 are very close for speakers and amps. 12cm x 2 for main, etc. And LX705 does have 6 speakers, like the HP605 (I said 4 in original post) but the LX combines a 12cm and 2.5cm in same enclosure it seems, hence the confusion (for me!).

So the 'Acoustic Projection' design may be a tad better for the LX705 but marginal given that sound systems are not progressing like the sound engine and keyboard main enhancements.

So to me, it does look like the LX705 is an HP605 successor, and the Luxury entry model. Just costs signifcantly more than the old HP605.

The LX706/LX708 use 25cm main speakers, like the old LX7/LX17, so they are the true top of the line.

In Poland they both cost around the same.

Thanks Nordomus.
That really does add a lot of weight to my findings/thinking. Mmm... maybe if a second-hand HP605 in excellent condition was available here, it would be worth thinking about. That could be half the price of a new LX705.
