The CLP685’s keyboard features the highly regarded Grandtouch system. These keys have a specially dried wooden core which has the classic feel of an acoustic piano. The keytops feature a synthetic material which has a similar feel to ivory and ebony, making it suitable for traditional acoustic players who want each key to have a robust feel. The weighted hammer action has a smooth and consistent feel, allowing musicians to have an expressive response. This playability and likeness to an acoustic piano is ideal for advanced musicians wanting their performance to feature all of their subtle playing nuances.
The Yamaha Clavinova benefits from Bluetooth technology, opening your development to a variety of apps. The Bluetooth connects to your smartphone or tablet and interacts wirelessly for a quick, easy setup. You can use the Bluetooth compatibility for bespoke apps such as Chord Tracker, which analyses your favourite songs before displaying the chords directly for you. The Sound Controller offers parameter editing functions to tweak your piano’s playability and response to your exact preference. You can also record songs, track your progress and access sheet music all from your phone. This feature is ideal for developing musicians wanting to stay inspired, and advanced musicians needing to tweak the performance to their exact preference.
VRM Physical Modelling
The Virtual Resonance Modelling technology optimises your piano’s resonance. In an acoustic piano each note blends with the next for natural swell and decay of sound. The VRM uses an advanced register to measure the strings’ distance and interaction with each other. It can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add an appropriate decay of each note. This gives the CLP685 a more acoustic feel with textured tones, removing any unnatural breaks in sound.
Binaural Sampling Technology
Yamaha’s advanced binaural sampling technology gives the player a fully immersive concert grand experience - even with headphones. The technology uses samples from the CFX, Yamaha’s acclaimed concert grand piano, recorded with specialised microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural that you’ll forget you’re even wearing headphones. Once you choose the Yamaha CFX Grand Voice and put headphones on, the binaural sampled sound is automatically ready and no additional settings are required. Now you can fully enjoy the concert grand experience at home, with or without headphones.
3 Speaker System
The 3 speaker design on this Yamaha Clavinova reproduces your notes with exceptional clarity and balance. The first speaker runs along the top bar of the piano, directing sound straight towards the performer for an immersive experience. The lower speaker pushes bass frequencies with a realistic resonance. The middle speaker adds warmth and mid frequency power to your mix. By having this speaker under the cabinet, the performer will notice a more accurate sound. The even tone and volume capabilities are ideal for musicians in a home, studio, or teaching environment.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
