A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, the Yamaha U1SH offers outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured. Silent functionality has been added to this U1. This is an SH-type type Silent piano™ featuring a CFX sound source.
For the first time ever the Silent Piano™ offers sound sampled from the Yamaha CFX full concert grand piano, supporting the beauty of its clear, vivid tones with the power of this renowned instrument. – Yamaha’s first model with binaural sampling system, enabling reproduction of natural and three-dimensional sound.
[ Binaural sampling system ] A recording system in which microphones are installed in the ears of a dummy (see diagram) so that the sound can be reproduced the way it is heard by the player. – When playing in “Silent” mode, the player feels as though the CFX sounds are coming directly from the piano.
