Great performances start with great sound
Tone is a priority for any serious pianist. The rich sound of a grand piano is created by a multitude of physical interactions. Roland's Pure Acoustic Piano Modelling technology digitally recreates the way acoustic pianos create sound; the key is pressed, the hammer strikes the string, the string resonates within the cabinet - before many other elements shape the final sound. These elements interact to produce complex tonal characters, while the resonance alters in response to the number of notes being played, their register, and how the damper pedal is being pressed. In the hands of the right player, an unlimited level of expression can be achieved, and the LX-700 series puts all of this, and more, right at your fingertips.

Why modelling is better than sampling
Most digital pianos use 'sampling' technology, which records the individual notes from an acoustic piano and combines them to deliver the final sound. This approach results in a limited range of expression, similar to when animation is composed by still images. Roland takes a different approach, producing the sound using advanced digital modeling technology that recreates the process of piano-tone-generation in real-time. It's so accurate that your expression and touch is captured as you perform, and reflected onto the tone, resulting in a beautifully rich sound that compels you to play.

The best of both worlds - in one instrument
Even experienced pianists need fresh inspiration. The LX700 series includes two completely different piano models; a classic European grand with a rich, deep tonal character, and an American grand that emphasizes clarity and brightness. This approach goes far beyond the typical sound variations found on conventional digital pianos. Think of it as owning two world-class pianos, representing two distinct-but-complementary sides of the piano's tonal spectrum. You can even customize the sound so it's exactly how you like it.

Sensational sound that surrounds you
Each LX700 model includes an Acoustic Projection System, reproducing the rich, room-filling sound of a grand piano in a great venue - without needing the floorspace. The flagship LX708 houses a four-way, eight-speaker system, driven by a powerful amplifier, with each speaker fulfilling a specific role in delivering superior piano tone. The powerful cabinet speakers produce the all-enveloping main sound, while the top-mounted spatial speakers reproduce the resonance of the piano's frame, projecting through the front C-shape wide aperture. Finally, the nearfield speakers and tweeters project the sounds you're most likely to notice, including dramatic, dynamic overtones and even the noise of the hammers hitting the strings through the keyboard section. The sound can be made even clearer by opening the top lid.

Express yourself with Hybrid Grand Keyboard & Responsive Damper Action Pedals
The LX708's Hybrid Grand Keyboard has a longer key action compared to most digital pianos. Because the key action is longer, the pivot point of each key is set further back, so you don't need to press harder the further up the key you play. The white keys combine sleek wooden sides with a durable inner frame for maintenance-free reliability. And when playing, you'll feel the ideal balance of pressure, momentum and return movement, along with smooth vertical travel. The premium LX708 even reproduces the physical vibrations that resonate through a grand piano's keyboard, while the addition of pedals that enable a variety of advanced techniques makes this an authentic and thrilling piano experience.

Find the perfect combination of piano and performance venue
Because it can recreate the acoustic ambience of a venue, each LX700 model lets you explore several inspiring combinations of piano and location. The 'My Stage' function offers a choice of tone collections, each perfectly matching the piano to the venue for an incredibly immersive experience. For example, 'Piano Recital' lets you hear what it sounds like to play a European grand in a large concert hall, while Jazz Club lets you try an American grand in a smaller lounge with completely different acoustics.

Greater focus, fewer distractions
Each LX700 model puts the controls directly in your line of sight, so you can glance down, find what you need and focus on your performance. The thoughtful touches continue with buttons that become backlit when activated, an extra-wide music rest for the thickest music scores, and a rotary volume knob instead of the usual buttons. You don't even need to press the power button - just open the lid and start playing.

Connect to your smart device and make piano practice fun
Piano practice is a pleasure, not a chore, when you use the LX700 series' integrated Bluetooth MIDI functionality. You can wirelessly connect to educational apps like the Roland Piano App, accessing digital sheet music, song libraries, and more. And when you're just relaxing, the Roland Piano App lets you control the piano's internal song library from the comfort of your sofa.

Onboard educational features improve your piano playing
The LX700 series provides an alternative to conventional book-learning with an array of educational features. Playing alongside the onboard songs prepares you for joining a band or orchestra, while Twin Piano mode lets a learner and teacher play side-by-side in the same key range. The built-in metronome develops accurate timing, while the onboard recorder lets you capture what you've just played, then listen back to evaluate your progress. Meanwhile, the unique Do Re Mi Lesson found in the onboard songs lets you learn music basics, by singing solfege along with the songs or practicing score-reading.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
