Touch, pedal feel, reverberation, and resonance—by all metrics, the N3X meets or surpasses the demands of even the most discriminating pianist.


It starts with a true acoustic action. More than 5,000 genuine parts, meticulously crafted to deliver the unmistakable touch of a Yamaha acoustic piano. Yamaha’s groundbreaking innovations recreate the sound and feel of two legendary concert grand pianos, from the natural vibrations of the strings to the subtle harmonics and rich overtones. All with the power, colors and shadings for the most demanding repertoire. The more you play AvantGrand, the more you realize it’s not just a revolution in digital pianos. It’s a revolution in the piano.


The NU1X represents the next evolution in hybrid piano technology melding the Yamaha pedigree of unparalled piano craft with progressive digital innovation. Employing a real acoustic upright piano action that intuitively connects player and piano, the NU1X offers a gratifying dynamic experience. The result is an instrument that not only pays tribute to its acoustic counterpart but exceeds all expectations.



To play an AvantGrand means access to the actual sound profile of two legendary concert grands: the Yamaha CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial. Whether you prefer the bold, expansive palette of the CFX, or the warm, rich Vienna tones of the Imperial, switching between the two is simple.



The NU1X features a damper pedal that recreates the subtle changes in resistance experienced when using a grand piano pedal. What’s more, the NU1X’s damper pedal allows you to use the same half-pedal techniques that you would with a grand piano, offering detailed control over sustain and reverberation.



Headphone connectivity wasn’t just an added formality for the NU1X. Thanks to our advanced binaural sampling technology, the sound you hear through your headphones is remarkably lifelike. This technology uses piano samples recorded by specialized microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural, so enveloping, that you’ll soon forget you’re even wearing headphones at all. (CFX Grand Voice only)



The elegant simplicity of the NU1X blends effortlessly into any setting, adding an air of distinction without being imposing. Inheriting the superb sound and playability of the AvantGrand series of pianos, the NU1X offers the warmth and natural presence of an acoustic instrument in a stylish, compact form.




Behind its simple control panel, the NU1X hosts an abundance of connectivity options for maximum functionality and integration with external devices. It can be connected directly to computers and mobile devices via USB, sound and recording systems via audio cables, act as a Bluetooth receiver, and integrate with iOS apps via WiFi.


USB Audio/MIDI Connectivity

USB Audio/MIDI connectivity allows you to connect the piano directly to your Mac or PC for easy audio and MIDI integration.

This feature allows you to record audio and MIDI directly into your favorite DAW software, such as Steinberg Cubase, without the need for a separate computer interface.

*Cubase series software is not bundled with this product, and must be purchased separately.

Yamaha Avant Series Testimonials

I personally purchased an NU1X for my apartment and I have enjoyed many hours of good practice and playing on my NU1X! The action is better and more responsive than that of a purely digital piano and the speakers and piano sample are outstanding. As someone who has studied piano at the University level, I have been very happy with the NU1X!

Josh Gratton | Piano Department Manager & Piano Instructor

I love the NU1X! First and foremost as a teacher I need a quality sound and action. I really like the main grand piano sounds, especially the Bösendorfer. The fact that the action is from an acoustic piano makes the feel of the piano great.

I teach in person and online, and I really like that I have the flexibility to plug the piano into my computer when I’m teaching online. I use the recording feature to play duets with myself and when teaching in person I can record duets ahead of time for my students. This allows me to instruct when I would otherwise be playing. All in all, the NU1X gives me a bit more versatility when I’m teaching.

I like that I do not have to tune the piano and I also utilize the Bluetooth feature often! The speakers are high quality so when I play music through the piano it sounds amazing!
