Description

Feel the smooth hybrid action as your fingers glide over the keys. Tune into convenient digital features to propel performances and support learning. And rest assured that you’ve made a sound investment with a maintenance-free future.

Superior Expression

The LX-5 combines the rich, resonant sound of a premium grand piano with the immediate expression of an upright. In contrast with sampled pianos that just trigger pre-recorded sounds, Roland’s Piano Reality Modeling approach recreates every aspect of an acoustic piano’s voice for a truly immersive musical experience.

Limitless Inspiration

Enjoy endless tonal possibilities and expressive qualities that seamlessly adapt to your playing. Gentle keystrokes produce a dignified, mellow resonance while escalating intensity results in a bright tone that mirrors your dynamic touch. There’s no limit to the performance at your command.

True to Your Touch

To develop proper techniques, there’s no room for compromise regarding the keyboard action. An authentic weighted response allows more nuanced control during your most demanding technical pieces. The innovative PHA-50 hybrid keyboard puts the feel of premium acoustic piano keys under your fingers, combined with durability that will not let you down.

Shape Your Environment

Want to hear your performance from a studio, lounge, concert hall, or cathedral? Instantly transport yourself to four immersive environments with Piano Reality Ambience projected from the Piano Reality Projection four-speaker sound system. Or use headphones to envelop yourself in beautiful music without disturbing others around you.

Personalize the Sound

If you want to tweak the LX-5’s tone, there’s no need to call a piano technician. Easily adjust the tonal character through elements like string tuning and temperament, resonance, keyboard sensitivity, and more.

Digital Repertoire

Spark creativity and sharpen skills with enhanced features only available with a Roland digital piano. Access digital scores, play with your favorite tunes, and dive deeper into settings by pairing the piano with the Roland Piano App and other music apps via Bluetooth.
