Yamaha DGC1M4 Disklavier Mark IV Grand Piano – the piano that thinks it’s a computer

Yamahadisklavierpro

The new Yamaha DGC1M4 Disklavier Mark IV Grand Piano is a piano in the same way that a space shuttle is a crop duster. Yeah sure, it makes reassuringly nice grand piano sounds when you plink the keys, but does your aging honky-tonk in the basement feature:

  • Direct Internet connection for streaming music from the web to your keys.
  • Pocket Remote Control touchscreen PDA with wireless LAN card for song control.
  • Karaoke player with microphone input
  • Integrated piano teacher (with auto-follow accompaniment)
  • 80 GB hard drive
  • Alarm clock
  • 10 channel online radio tuner
  • CD and USB flash drive ports
  • Camcorder port for synchronised video recording
  • Laser powered key sensors
  • Six hours of on-board music included

No? Thought not. $42,995.00.

 Have time to learn? With SmartKey technology, the new Disklaviers can make your dream come true. Even if you’ve never touched a keyboard or read a note of music in your life, the new SmartKey feature makes it easy to learn without a single lesson. Just follow along as SmartKey shows you which notes to play by partially depressing the next key in the melody. SmartKey prompts the Disklavier to wait for you and play at a speed within your comfort zone. Within minutes, you’ll be playing entire songs while the Disklavier follows your lead with virtuoso harmonies and arpeggios.
