Yamaha has introduced its CVP300 Series of Clavinovas, which includes the CVP301, CVP303, CVP305, CVP307, CVP309, and CVP309GP models.
They all come with Internet Direct Connection, song and lyric displays, floppy disc drive, and Smart-Media slots, as well as the USA Edition upgrade.
Assuming the user has an Internet connection, they can go online from the Clavinova’s LCD panel in order to download their favourite songs and styles.
It’s also possible to send the digital audio of their music to another device for recording, using the built-in Optical Out terminal found on the CVP305 and higher models.
The keyboards use the Graded Hammer Effect 3 (GH3) action, and feature Yamaha’s MegaVoice Technology.
The CVP-307/309 models feature iAFC (Instrumental Active Field Control) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a sophisticated technology that examines and adjusts room acoustics Ã¢â‚¬â€œ creating a richer and more spacious sonic environment. Using built-in microphones, iAFC picks up sound and combines it with the Clavinovas internal sound through the rear speakers, making automatic adjustments in real time to enhance performances and match the acoustic characteristics of the room.
The CVP301 comes in a choice of Dark Rosewood or Cherry finishes. The CVP303/305/307 models offer a choice of Mahogany, Dark Rosewood or Cherry. The top-of-the-line CVP309 features a choice of Polished Ebony or Polished Mahogany cabinetry, as well as Yamahas Natural Wood Keyboard Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the finest, most accurate and authentic acoustic keyboard. The CVP309 is also available in a grand-style Polished Ebony cabinet, and is called the CVP309GP.
