THE TECHNOLOGY AND QUALITY BEHIND SILENT Piano™
Unique key sensors that allow continuous detection offer faithful reproduction of the player's inspirations
Key sensors equipped with continuous-detection greyscale shutter sensing systems accurately capture the nimble movements and detailed nuances of the pianists fingers. This makes it possible to execute repeated notes and trills at the edges of the keys smoothly and naturally. The sensors are non-contact, so they do not affect the touch of the keys.

Binaural sampling is a painstaking method of recording-Special microphones are set up in the same positions as the performers ears, done specifically to enhance the headphones listening experience.
