"Real Grand Expression" Sound, touch, pedals–perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.

By harmonizing the three key elements of sound, touch and pedals in a single piano, the CVP Series gives you the feeling that you are playing a grand piano.

Achieves grand piano performance…and more.

The RGE Sound Engine delivers the ultimate expressive capability.

The Clavinova uses the RGE (Real Grand Expression) Sound Engine, the next-generation piano sound source. This lets you enjoy a playing response and expressive capability similar to that of a concert grand piano.
It features a new Smooth Release function which can clearly enunciate staccato notes with the sound of lingering resonance heard when gently lifting your fingers from the keys. It succeeds in capturing the essence of a piano performance to create grand piano-like, richly expressive experiences.

Subtly reproduces resonance with the depth you hear from an acoustic piano.

The Clavinova subtly reproduces the unique resonances of an acoustic piano. It features String Resonance that recreates the mellow sounds of the other strings resonating and Key-Off samples that deliver the delicate change in sound the instant the damper touches the string, just before you raise your finger from the key. The addition of these sounds results in tonal resonances that are not only beautiful, but also deep and rich.

Experience real piano touch with Yamaha’s Natural Wood keyboard.

The Clavinova NW (Natural Wood) keyboard could only be made by Yamaha, with woodworking techniques perfected from over a century of building fine acoustic pianos. Like a grand piano, the keys are made of wood that has undergone the long drying process required for use in a musical instrument. By selecting only the highest quality sections of each piece of wood, keys that are more resistant to warping and deforming are created. The keys have three sensors that maximise their sensitivity to the pianist playing them. Combined with the solid texture of wood, this provides an outstanding playing experience and performance.

Synthetic ivory keytops remain tactile during long performances.

Pianists enjoy a touch that clings firmly to their fingers, just like the ivory keyboards historically used in top-class pianos. Synthetic ivory keytops feature a soft, slightly porous surface that gives all keys added grip and natural friction for improved ease in playing, especially during long performances or practice sessions. The keys’ smooth, refined texture imparts a feeling of luxury and is easy to clean.

88-key Linear Graded Hammer action creates a unique weight for each key.

Each key in the Clavinova keyboard has a unique weight. On a traditional acoustic piano, the strings are short and narrow in the treble section and get progressively thicker and longer in the bass section. To produce an even sound, the size and weight of the hammers hitting the strings changes as you move up the keyboard. Thanks to the 88-key Linear Graded Hammer action, the CVP-609 precisely recreates the keyboard feel of a grand piano where the weight, touch and return of every key is different. Since the experience is extremely close to that of a grand piano, you can achieve better playing technique.

The GP Response Damper Pedal provides an authentic grand piano pedal feel.

The damper pedal is an important piano-playing element because it continuously varies the sound as you press it down. The Clavinova recreates acoustic piano behaviour by constantly detecting the amount of pedal travel and finely adjusting the amount of note elongation and reverberation. Additionally, the GP Response Damper Pedal reproduces the typical grand piano feeling, for example less resistance when starting to press and a heavy feeling when the pedal begins to take effect. As a result, players achieve greater control when operating the damper pedal.

Piano Room: your choice of piano and location.

The CVP-609 offers a great new feature called Piano Room that you can use when you really want to concentrate on piano performance and savor the piano sound. You can select from among four types of pianos - grand, pop grand, upright and honky-tonk - and also a playing location, such as concert hall, cathedral or stage. Instantly, the tone quality changes to match that piano and place, giving your performance a totally different feel. When you’re playing the grand piano or pop grand, you can even choose to have the “virtual” piano lid open or closed.

A wide variety of voices for amazingly realistic instrumental sounds.

The CVP Series offers many instrument voices in addition to pianos.
You can enjoy playing different sounds and reproducing the expressiveness unique to each instrument.

Super Articulation 2 Voices reproduce true effects, as if you are playing that actual musical instrument.

Yamaha’s Super Articulation Voices that provide genuine performance attributes of non-keyboard instruments are now supplemented by an even more extensive set of enhanced Super Articulation 2 Voices. SA2 Voices automatically add the nuances unique to each instrument. For example, legato, glissando and vibrato in wind instruments and the new SA2 Violin. Moving smoothly from Voice to Voice, you’ll achieve performances that sound like they’re naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument, instead of from the keys of a piano.

Play along with virtual backing bands where you’re the leader!

Accompaniment styles let you play along with virtual bands in numerous genres including rock and jazz. Change the style and you can perform the same piece with a completely different mood.

Music Finder

Music Finder is useful when you can’t decide on the right Style or a Voice for ensemble performance. All you have to do is choose the name of the song you want to play and the CVP will call up the proper settings so you can get playing right away.

Style Recommender

Delivers powerful bass for greater enjoyment of ensemble performances.

The acoustic system has been redesigned from previous models to include an additional subwoofer so that during ensemble playing, the low tones of basses and drums are reproduced with even greater intensity. From professional piano performance to joy the of discovering music for the first time, the CVP-609 can fulfill anyone’s piano playing dreams.

"Intelligent Acoustic Control" provides a full, balanced sound with rich lows and clear highs even at low volumes.

Volume adjustment is convenient for playing at home, where sometimes others may prefer you to play softly. You’ve probably experienced the fact that when the volume is low, it is difficult to hear treble and bass. On a Clavinova, however, the Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) automatically adjusts the sound, so you enjoy proper sound balance even at low volumes. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) at low volume. This ability to adjust volume without losing the rich and balanced sound is an exclusive Yamaha benefit, ensuring you always play with the utmost sound quality.

Yamaha's latest sound engineering technology, "Acoustic Optimizer".

The "Acoustic Optimizer" system has been created to enrich and control resonance by physically adjusting the flow of sound waves, thanks to its design and positioning within the instrument. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies gives the CVP Series an incredible expressive capability.

A piano appearance with the benefit of many advanced features.

When the key cover is closed, your CVP has the calm ambience of a piano. When it is open, you see an efficiently laid out control panel. CVP-609 features the traditional strong points of the CVP Series that let you explore new ways to enjoy music, along with the genuine expressiveness of a piano.
