Capturing the sound of this incredible instrument is only one part of the AvantGrand story. Equally as important are the speakers which Yamaha, pioneers in high end hi-fi technology, have advanced like never before. In fact, with the introduction of AvantGrand, Yamaha ignited a revolution with their approach to sampling and the subsequent playback of acoustic instrument sounds.

Treating the soundboard not simply as a point source of sound but as a plane, Yamaha took samples at four positions rather than the traditional two. Meanwhile, the Yamaha N1X’s speaker system has been designed to ensure that this sound is heard best at the playing position. A three-way system featuring woofer, mid-range and tweeter speakers reproduce the rich natural resonance of the soundboard with an
accuracy never before heard. This innovative configuration allows the instrument’s outstanding sound system to reproduce the nuances of each individual note.
