With P-515, you can enjoy the exquisite beauty and sought-after tone of both the Yamaha CFX and Bsendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos.

With over 500 Voices, P-515 gives you a wide selection of sounds to choose from, making it the perfect tool to create and perform in any musical genre.

P-515 has a Natural Wood X(NWX) keyboard - created using the unrivaled expertise Yamaha has acquired through more than a century of crafting some of the world's finest acoustic pianos. This, combined with cutting-edge digital technology, makes for an authentic piano playing experience that only Yamaha can provide.

The elegant, yet compact and portable design makes P-515 an attractive addition to your home, and a reliable, eye-catching instrument on stage.

FEATURES

Two of the world's finest grand pianos
P-515 features piano sounds captured from Yamaha's flagship CFX concert grand and the famed Viennese Bosendorfer Imperial grand. These piano samples put two of the world's finest and most prominent concert grand pianos at your fingertips.

Completely natural sound
P-515 features two advanced technologies that allow you to enjoy exceptionally realistic, natural sound, even when listening through headphones: Binaural Sampling and Stereophonic Optimizer

Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard - the feel of an acoustic grand piano
The NWX keyboard found in P-515 features white keys made from only the best quality wood and topped with synthetic ivory. The black keys are finished in textured synthetic ebony. Furthermore, this keyboard features the true feel of the escapement mechanism found in a grand piano which the hammers away from the strings quickly after they strike them, in order to prevent any interference with string vibration.

Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM)
P-515 is able to calculate the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes of concert grand from one instant to the next. Enhanced VRM also calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame. This technology allows for vivid, bright, richly varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.

Aliquot is a stringing method for pianos that uses extra, un-struck strings in the upper octaves to enhance the tone. These strings sympathetically vibrate with other strings in an acoustic piano, resonating with overtones, and adding richness, brilliance and complex colour to the sound. Since they do not have a damper, they will continue sounding even after you release your hands from the keyboard.

Powerful onboard speaker system
P-515 features 15w + 5w amplifiers along with 2 way speaker system which provides an immersive, authentic piano experience with astonishing clarity.

P-515 also features a Twisted Flare Bass Port, Yamaha's technology that offers a clear and precise bass sound. The flared and gently twisted shape evenly diffuses the air flow through the port. Compared to a conventional port, the Twisted Flare Port reduces air turbulence noise, resulting in clear and accurate low frequency reproduction.

Customising the Sound and the Touch Response of Piano Voices (Piano Room)
The Piano Room function is for those who want to simply, conveniently, and fully enjoy playing the instrument as a piano. No matter what settings for Voice etc. you've made, you can instantly call up the optimum settings for piano performance with a single button press. Try creating a custom piano sound by adjusting the various parameters such as lid position, string resonance, damper resonance, touch response and so on.

In addition to Piano Room, applying on board effects such as reverb, chorus and various effects gives you greater and richer expressive capability.

Playing the piano along with Rhythm Playback
The P-515 comes complete with forty different and simple rhythm patterns (drums and bass accompaniment) that are perfectly suited to many types of music , letting you spice up your performance with some backing musicians, make practice more interesting, or open up your creative flow with inspiring new ideas.

Simple operation using the Smart Pianist app!
Yamaha's "Smart Pianist" app allows you to control the many functions included in Yamaha digital pianos with your iOS device. Voices, rhythms and other settings can be selected right from the touch screen, making it even easier to get what you want from your P-515. You can also save your favourite settings for quick recall at any time. Smart Pianist can even access the songs in your iOS device's music library and create a chord chart for you, so you can play along with recordings of your personal favourite songs.

Bluetooth audio for wireless listening
Connect your music player via Bluetooth and instantly turn your P-515 into a high-quality speaker system to listen to your favourite songs through.

I spent a happy hour at the Lethbridge Store exploring this astounding piece of music technology. I have owned MANY Yamaha instruments. One in particular is over 40 years old and none have failed me. Over the 58 years since I started playing music I have periodically bumped into the limits of technology. That did not happen with the P 515. I could see new places I could go with my music, unfettered by any technological limits. Exciting. If you try this piano, wherever you are, be sure to take along a REALLY good set of pro studio headphones. I did and they shut out the usual store noise background. The P 515 can be as subtle as your dreams or as loud and on point as a prairie thunder storm. Make sure you get to hear everything you can finally do!

If you are looking for a mid priced relatively portable digital keyboard that offers the feel of a real grand piano, this is worth considering. Its wooden keys provides a realistic touch and feel similar a real acoustic piano far superior to plastic keys. Check out the Smart Pianist app. It is a great feature of this keyboard. While the grand pianos sound fantastic through quality headphones, Yamaha has let us down by installing cheap speakers that diminish the sound quality of the great grand piano samples. So much so, that it is a deal breaker for me at this price point.
