You could explore the distinctive tonal qualities of European or American-style grand pianos, relayed through our powerful Acoustic Projection multi-speaker systems. Or you may be inspired to play more often with Roland’s unique Piano Every Day app. Play a piano in the LX700 series and you’ll quickly find there’s a lot to love; getting started is easy stopping is much harder.

A piano that communicates at the highest level
If you’ve got high expectations of piano tone, the LX700 series is designed to satisfy. Even at the most basic level – the way the sound is created – the LX range stands apart. There’s the choice of two world-class pianos in one, each with remarkable tonal character that you won’t find anywhere else, and a powerful speaker system that’ll give you goosebumps. If you prefer the finer things when it comes to playing music, every model in the LX700 series is a sound investment.
Great performances start with great sound
Tone is a priority for any serious pianist. The rich sound of a grand piano is created by a multitude of physical interactions; keys are pressed, hammers strike, strings resonate, and sound emanates. These and many other elements all contribute to the final sound that reaches the player. Roland’s entirely new PureAcoustic Piano Modeling uses advanced technology to reproduce the interactions within each of these stages, resulting in a beautifully rich sound that, until now, could only come from a grand piano.
The power to create – at your fingertips
Roland’s PureAcoustic Piano Modelling technology digitally recreates the way acoustic pianos create sound; the key is pressed, the hammer strikes the string, the string resonates within the cabinet – before many other elements shape the final sound. These elements interact to produce complex tonal characters, while the resonance alters in response to the number of notes being played, their register, and how the damper pedal is being pressed. In the hands of the right player, an unlimited level of expression can be achieved, and the LX-700 series puts all of this, and more, right at your fingertips.
Why modeling is better than sampling
Most digital pianos use ‘sampling’ technology, which records the individual notes from an acoustic piano and combines them to deliver the final sound. This approach results in a limited range of expression, similar to when animation is composed by still images. Roland takes a different approach, producing the sound using advanced digital modeling technology that recreates the process of piano-tone-generation in real-time. It’s so accurate that your expression and touch is captured as you perform, and reflected onto the tone, resulting in a beautifully rich sound that compels you to play.

The best of both worlds – in one instrument
Even experienced pianists need fresh inspiration. The LX700 series includes two completely different piano models; a classic European grand with a rich, deep tonal character, and an American grand that emphasizes clarity and brightness. This approach goes far beyond the typical sound variations found on conventional digital pianos. Think of it as owning two world-class pianos, representing two distinct-but-complementary sides of the piano’s tonal spectrum. You can even customize the sound so it’s exactly how you like it.
Sensational sound that surrounds you
Each LX700 model includes an Acoustic Projection System, reproducing the rich, room-filling sound of a grand piano in a great venue – without needing the floorspace. The flagship LX708 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a powerful amplifier, with each speaker fulfilling a specific role in delivering superior piano tone. The powerful cabinet speakers produce the all-enveloping main sound, while the top-mounted spatial speakers reproduce the resonance of the piano’s frame, projecting through the front C-shape wide aperture. Finally, the nearfield speakers and tweeters project the sounds you’re most likely to notice, including dramatic, dynamic overtones and even the noise of the hammers hitting the strings through the keyboard section. The sound can be made even clearer by opening the top lid.
4-way / 8-speaker (LX708)
Eight-speaker Acoustic Projection System, comprising four independent pairs of speakers, each pair optimized to recreate specific elements of a piano’s sound (for example, cabinet and body resonance, or the sound of the hammers striking the strings).
Opening top lid (LX708)
Opening the top lid provides a natural but noticeable variation in tone, just like opening the lid on an acoustic grand piano.
C-shape with wide aperture
The front C-shape wide aperture projects the resonance of the piano frame from the top-mounted special speakers.
