The Roland LX708 is the flagship model in the LX range. From the flowing keyboard to the tall upright cabinet housing a 4-way/8-speaker system, this luxurious instrument brings the graceful look of a high-end acoustic piano to your home.
As the flagship of Roland's LX700 series, the LX708 recreates all the pleasures of playing a traditional grand piano in a great live venue. Standing out among the LX range with its tall, commanding cabinet and a lid that opens for optimum sound projection, this luxurious instrument makes a bold statement in your home. And with its powerful eight-speaker system ready to fill your home with music, the LX708 is the ultimate choice for discerning players.
A Striking, Elegant Design
There's no mistaking the LX708. Standing out from the LX series with its taller cabinet, one-piece side panels and an openable lid that reveals a subtly different tonal flavour, this luxurious flagship model is designed to draw your gaze and attract your fingers. Classic and timeless – but with a twist – it's an instrument that makes a strong presence in any room, without shouting.
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-708 puts all of this, and more, right at your fingertips.
Why Modelling 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 modelling 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 LX708 includes two completely different piano models: a classic European grand with a rich, deep tonal character, and an American grand that emphasises 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 customise the sound so it's exactly how you like it.
Express Yourself With Hybrid Grand Keyboard
The LX708's Hybrid Grand keyboard has a longer key action compared to most digital pianos. Because the key action is longer, the pivot point of each key is set further back, so you don't need to press harder the further up the key you play. The white keys combine sleek wooden sides with a durable inner frame for maintenance-free reliability. And when playing, you'll feel the ideal balance of pressure, momentum and return movement, along with smooth vertical travel. The premium LX708 even reproduces the physical vibrations that resonate through a grand piano's keyboard, while the addition of pedals that enable a variety of advanced techniques makes this an authentic and thrilling piano experience.
Channeling The Power Of The Pedal
Advanced techniques aren't limited to the keyboard. Roland's Responsive Damper mechanism on the LX708 accurately recreates the detailed damper pedal response of a grand piano. This lets you channel the sympathetic resonance of the piano strings for a dramatic and lustrous sound. Lighter at first, the pedal's resistance increases as you press, before becoming lighter again upon release. Meanwhile, when a piece requires a lighter touch, use a more accurate 'half-pedalling' response, with the damper pedal depth allowing subtle control of tone decay.
Eight-Speaker System Fills Your Home With Rich, Warm Sound
One of the thrills of playing a concert grand in a great venue is how the sound seems to fill the room – so it's frustrating if your home piano sounds small and lifeless by comparison. The flagship LX708 features the most impressive Acoustic Projection System in the range, with a four-way, eight-speaker setup driven by a powerful amplifier. The eight speakers are split into four pairs, with each pair optimised to deliver superior sound reproduction across the piano's dynamic range – even down to the noise as the hammers strike the strings, or the resonance of the cabinet as the sound reverberates through the piano's body. When you want to fill your home with rich piano sound, the LX708 is the ultimate choice.
More Than Just A Piano
Roland's digital advantages can endlessly enhance your playing. Slip on headphones to practice in peace or perform late at night. Wirelessly connect your smartphone to the piano's powerful speakers, then play along with your favourite music. Try an inspiring choice of non-traditional sounds, including electric pianos, organs, harpsichord and strings, plus a library of onboard songs, from modern pop to classical repertoires with full orchestra backing – perfect for a change of pace. There's even a selection of onboard extras – from onboard metronome to recorder – to make learning easier. You won't pay for regular maintenance either, as the LX708 never needs tuning. For the discerning pianist, a piano should always be a piano. But when you choose an LX708, it can be something more too.
Transforms Into An Impressive Bluetooth® Speaker System
Sometimes you want to make music. Sometimes you just want to sit back and enjoy it. Either way, the high-quality speaker systems found in the LX708 will fill your home or venue with rich, exceptional sound. When you're entertaining friends, Bluetooth audio functionality allows the piano to replace your hi-fi, wirelessly connecting to your tablet or smartphone and playing your favourite songs and playlists through the speakers.
Connect To Your Smart Device And Make Piano Practice Fun
Piano practice is a pleasure, not a chore, when you use the LX708's integrated Bluetooth MIDI functionality. You can wirelessly connect to educational apps like Roland's Piano Every Day, accessing digital sheet music, song libraries, and more. And when you're just relaxing, the Piano Every Day app lets you control the piano's internal song library from the comfort of your sofa.
The Piano You'll Want To Play Every Day
If you're serious about mastering the piano, the LX708 offers a range of digital extras that put you in control of your learning. Convenient onboard features for daily practice include metronome and recording function – plus songs that cover a variety of genres, helping you with everything from listening and ensemble work to entertainment and basic skill-building. Another key advantage is compatibility with smartphone apps – you'll be amazed how fast your skills improve with Roland's Piano Every Day app.
Piano Every Day App
Playing piano makes you feel good – and Piano Every Day is a unique smartphone app that encourages you to play more often. Create your own library of scores or purchase the latest music from Sheet Music Direct. Try the '1-week master' option to track and display your progress as you learn a new piece, complete with exercises if required. If you love playing piano, learn something new and play more often with Piano Every Day.
Onboard Educational Features Improve Your Piano Playing
The LX708 provides an alternative to conventional book-learning with an array of educational features. Playing alongside the onboard songs prepares you for joining a band or orchestra, while Twin Piano mode lets a learner and teacher play side-by-side in the same key range. The built-in metronome develops accurate timing, while the onboard recorder lets you capture what you've just played, then listen back to evaluate your progress. Meanwhile, the unique Do Re Mi Lesson found in the onboard songs lets you learn music basics, by singing solfege along with the songs or practising score-reading.
