Yamaha’s story and success have been more than a hundred years in the making. Today, Yamaha is now the most well-known piano manufacturer globally, especially for its technological additions to the acoustic piano. Among Yamaha’s famous pianos, the Hybrid Pianos offer the best of both worlds to piano players. So, what’s the difference between the Yamaha Hybrid pianos? Let’s find out: Yamaha piano playing

Silent Piano

As the name might suggest, the Silent Pianos is played silently like a digital piano. Unlike a digital piano, the Silent Piano comes as an upright or grand acoustic piano, but with the Silent System.  Once this Silent System is activated, the player can use the piano with headphones without disturbing others while practicing. With the helpful addition of app interactivity, USB connectivity, and dual headphone sockets, Silent Pianos is an incredible tool for teaching and practicing. These pianos are perfect for students at home, professional performers, or piano teachers. The record function is also available, which allows you to professionally record your music pieces and track your progress as you learn.

Trans Acoustic

The TransAcoustic piano is the next step in piano technology. Unlike the silent piano, which requires headphones to hear the different piano sounds and effects available, TransAcoustic models project the digital sounds from a tone generator using the acoustic soundboard. The soundboard, body, and strings of the piano resonate as they would on an acoustic piano. This feature creates a genuinely natural sound and playing experience. The TransAcoustic piano can be overlaid with the live acoustic piano sound to create a pure tone that a digital piano can’t compare. You can also find all of the headphone-aided Silent play, recording, and app interactivity that the Silent Pianos from Yamaha offer.

Enspire Disklavier

The Enspire Disklavier is a player piano that includes the TransAcoustic range and the Silent Piano’s technology. What sets the Enspire Disklavier apart from other pianos is that the sound model is not externally visible on the piano. Without looking underneath, you would think the Enspire were simply an average acoustic piano. The Enspire Disklavier also has the most extensive song library of any player piano, with playback on a real acoustic piano in your own home. There is an Enspire ST range available on select Yamaha upright pianos, grand pianos, and baby grands. Another available range is the Enspire Pro range, which features the highest recording resolution and is available only on Yamaha Premium Pianos from within the CF range.
