The Yamaha Clavinova CLP-685 is infused with authentic realism. Its GrandTouch keyboard with synthetic ivory/ebony keytops and escapement and 88-key Linear Graded Hammer action ensure authentic feel, while key counterweights offer an eminently smooth playing experience — including the back end of keys and at pianissimo levels. Even the most discerning ears will appreciate the CLP-685's carefully sampled Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos. Listen to the CLP-685's binaurally sampled Yamaha CFX through headphones, or feel the full-bodied resonance of Virtual Resonance Modeling through the onboard 3-way stereo speaker system. If you're a serious pianist, don't settle for anything less than Yamaha's top-of-the-line Clavinova CLP-685.
The Yamaha Clavinova CLP-685 provides an unbelievable piano experience. GrandTouch keyboard action reproduces the touch, feel, and dynamic range of a concert grand better than ever. In addition to the synthetic ivory keytops that were featured on earlier models, the CLP-685 also sports synthetic ebony keytops, so the entire keybed feels amazing. The onboard sounds have been expanded from 48 voices and 12 drum/SFX kits to 49 voices and 14 drum/SFX kits. A binaurally sampled Yamaha CFX grand piano sounds stunning through headphones. Improved Virtual Resonance Modeling makes your CLP-685 vibrate and reverberate like a real acoustic piano. Connect your music player wirelessly via Bluetooth to listen and play along with your favourite songs. And the built-in amplification system has been upgraded from 180 to 300 watts with a spruce cone added for a more natural, piano-like attack.
The authentic feel and response of a real acoustic piano — the Clavinova CLP-685 delivers it. Yamaha calls it Real Grand Expression — and they should know. They've been perfecting their piano-making craft for over a century, and their grand pianos are standard equipment in top studios and on premier concert stages worldwide. Packed with unique, expertly integrated Yamaha technologies, the Clavinova CLP-685 delivers renowned expressive capability as it precisely executes your nuanced musical intent through the responsive touch of its keys and the feel of its pedals. As you play, you'll revel in the experience of playing an acoustic grand piano.
In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing distinctively rich, room-filling reverberation. Yamaha uses their Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) to re-create this acoustical phenomenon in the Clavinova CLP-685. VRM calculates the various states of the strings from one instant to the next for each of the instrument's 88 notes. This enables vivid, richly varied expression that reflects the infinite number of factors involved in a live performance, including the velocity with which you strike the keys, which keys are pressed, and your pedal timing.
The Clavinova CLP-685 grand piano voices are sourced from premium, hand-selected Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos tuned to perfection by top professional piano tuners. Only then were the sounds meticulously sampled in varying velocities, for a stunningly realistic grand piano sound with smooth tonal transformations perfectly matched to key pressure. From staccato to legato, you get superbly expressive sound that responds beautifully to your touch. Featuring Yamaha's Smooth Release technology, CLP-685 gives you realistic crisp staccatos and luxurious legatos, for nuanced response just like a real grand piano.
In a process analogous to that of an acoustic piano, the Clavinova's body materials and speaker positioning are meticulously calibrated to ensure that the instrument resonates optimally. To achieve a sonic image uncannily close to a grand piano's, the CLP-685 employs tone escape ports in multiple locations throughout the cabinet; this allows the sound from the speakers to be projected naturally to the listener's ears without getting trapped inside the instrument. The body of the CLP-685 has Acoustic Optimizers that control tone and regulate the flow of sound, for natural, smooth sonic richness across the entire keyboard range.
The Yamaha CLP-685 has a 16-track, 250-song recorder to capture your creativity. When it's time to share your music, simply record your performances to a USB flash memory device as a WAV audio file. With 16 tracks and the CLP-685's 48 high-quality instrument Voices, you can build up complex arrangements for compelling demos or to flesh out your song ideas.
You can't always rock out at home without disturbing your family or roommates. Of course, the Yamaha CLP-685 sports dual headphone outputs, but for those occasions when you prefer not to use 'phones, the CLP-685 lets you adjust your speaker volume while compensating for the loss of bass and treble you get at lower levels. Yamaha calls it Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC); we call it brilliant. IAC acts like the "Loudness" contour on vintage hi-fi receivers, boosting highs and lows at lower volumes so you enjoy balanced sound at any setting.
