    Two of the world's finest grand pianos

    The P-515 features piano models built using sound captured from our flagship CFX concert grand and the revered Viennese Bösendorfer Imperial grand. Using our advanced acoustic modelling, these recreations of two of the world’s finest and most prominent concert grand pianos are brought to life.

    Completely natural sound

    The P-515 features two advanced technologies that allow you to enjoy exceptionally realistic, natural sound, even when listening through headphones: Binaural Sampling and the Stereophonic Optimizer.

    Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard - the feel of an acoustic grand piano

    The NWX keyboard found in the P-515 features white keys made from only the best quality wood and topped with synthetic ivory. The black keys are finished in textured synthetic ebony. Furthermore, this keyboard features the true feel of the escapement mechanism found in a grand piano action when the hammer is thrown and then separated from the key in order to allow the string to vibrate freely.

    Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM)

    The P-515 using advanced acoustic resonance modelling to create the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes of a concert grand from one instant to the next. This Enhanced VRM also calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame.

    This technology allows for vivid, bright and richly varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance. Aliquot is a stringing method for pianos that uses extra, un-struck strings in the upper octaves to enhance the tone. These strings sympathetically vibrate with other strings in an acoustic piano, resonating with overtones, and adding richness, brilliance and complex colour to the sound. Since they do not have a damper, they will continue sounding even after you release your hands from the keyboard.

    Powerful onboard speaker system

    The P-515 features 15 watt and 5 watt amplifiers combined with a 2-way speaker system which provides an immersive, authentic piano experience with astonishing clarity. The P-515 also features a Twisted Flare Bass Port: our technology that offers a clear and precise bass sound. The flared and gently twisted shape evenly diffuses the air flow through the port. Compared to a conventional port, the Twisted Flare Port reduces air turbulence noise, resulting in clear and accurate low frequency reproduction.

    Simple operation using the Smart Pianist app!

    Our Smart Pianist app allows you to control the many functions included in Yamaha digital pianos with your device. Voices, rhythms and other settings can be selected right from the touch screen, making it even easier to get what you want from your P-515. You can also save your favourite settings for quick recall at any time. Smart Pianist can even access the songs in your  device's music library and create a chord chart for you, so you can play along with recordings of your own music.

    Connect your music player via Bluetooth and instantly turn your P-515 into a high quality wireless speaker system.
