the strings. I was pleasantly surprised to discover no difference between this and the normal upright piano mode – my playing was not not compromised in any way. There is no question that the digital piano sound allows players to enjoy an extremely realistic piano-playing experience.
In addition to the instrument’s three playing functions, the AURES’s soundboard can be used as a speaker for playing music from a tablet or smartphone. The possibility of filling a living-room with sound from a piano is a special and unique concept – almost like owning a player-piano, but one that can play all kinds of music rather than just piano pieces. With a Bluetooth-connected smartphone, you can even enjoy playing along with a backing track or accompaniment. The instrument’s top-of-the-range transducer components have been developed by Japanese electronics manufacturer Onkyo. By using a vibrating wooden soundboard rather than cone speakers, the resulting sound is projected in all directions. This is huge advance compared with other hybrids, which tend to project sounds in a more limited way.
An impressive and versatile piano. Highly recommended. IP
