Yamaha PSR-E233 and PSR-E333 portable keyboards unveiled [NAMM11]

Yamaha continues to add to its low-end line of PSR series home keyboards with the introduction of the PSR-E233 and PSR-E333 61-key instruments.

Thanks to Yamaha’s experience in home theatre audio technology, these new entry-level instruments benefit from an Ultra-Wide Stereo function that allows the built-in speakers to output a spacious sound. This DSP button allows the player to become immersed in the soundscape.

As you’d expect from the PSR series of keyboards, there are a wide variety of other features including a range of voices, 100+ built-in accompaniment styles, a Portable Grand button for instantly calling up a grand piano sound, and the Yamaha Education Suite to guide new and improving keyboard players through a series of music lessons.

The PSR-E333 can be connected to a computer via its built in USB port, while the PSR-E233 can be connected via optional MIDI interface.

Shipping in May 2011, the PSR-E233 will be available at an MSRP of $169, while the PSR-E333 will be available at an MSRP of $269.
