Announcing the brand new Roland LX series

Announcing the brand new Roland LX series


After a long wait, Roland have announced replacements to their popular LX series of digital upright pianos. The LX (luxury) series represent the pinnacle of Roland design and engineering and are endowed with the very most powerful modelling features and grand piano-like actions.

There are significant updates and improvements to the action, piano modelling engine, speaker design and placement and aesthetic of the new range.

Three models are available, sitting above the HP series and offering a range of sizes. They all include a high quality matching adjustable stool and are covered by Roland's unique ten year warranty. All three feature Roland's Piano Reality Modelling sound with limitless polyphony and advanced real time modelling of harmonics, string and pedal noise and sympathetic resonance.

The flagship is the LX9. Its 8 speaker arrangement is possibly the most powerful speaker system ever fitted to a digital piano, offering an astonishing 162W of power. The hybrid grand action retains the haptic key vibration that was also a feature on the previous LX708. But this is a vastly different level of performance. At 125cm, it is the height of a true acoustic upright and retains an elegant and compact form with soft close life and grand piano style music desk. It is available in three finishes: charcoal, polished ebony and polished white.

Its slightly shorter sibling is the LX6. This model represents incredible value: it possesses the same processor and action as the LX9 and only misses out on haptic key vibration. While the LX6 only has a five speaker arrangement, it carries more than enough power and volume for any domestic setting and sounds satisfying both in the playing position and sitting back. The LX6 is produced in charcoal, dark rosewood and polished ebony with the polished finished attracting a typical premium.

The entry point is the LX5, which offers the widest choice of cabinet finishes: charcoal, dark rosewood, light amber ash and polished ebony. It features Roland's still impressive PH-50 action with real wood inserts and a four speaker system that brings to life the Piano reality modelling engine. 

All models are wirelessly compatible with the Roland app which features a range of learning modules and sheet music as well as recording, metronome and piano control functionality such as the acoustic simulator. 

The LX range represent a genuine acoustic piano replacement for many customers and offer another impressive leap in digital piano innovation and design.
