A piano you can play any time you want, with the natural touch of an acoustic grand piano. The new Silent Piano™ from Yamaha, offering enhanced Silent functions and an even richer sound.
With magnificent cabinetry, spruce soundboard and back posts crafted to European preferences, the P116 delivers superb sound quality while remaining compact in appearance. Silent functionality has been added to this P116. This is an SH-type type Silent piano™ featuring a CFX sound source.
Yamaha’s first model with binaural sampling system, enabling reproduction of natural and three-dimensional sound.
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.
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.
