In our SX Series grands, innovation comes in the form of
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.)
Think of a Stradivarius, and you think of a rich, mellow tone that resonates more deeply with every passing year. What if you could bring that same timeless resonance to a concert piano? Our A.R.E. treatment imbues wood used in the rims with the acoustic properties of a beloved vintage instrument. In SX Series pianos, the effect is remarkable. You find yourself embraced in a richly expressive sound with a beautifully sustained resonance.
