      The Yamaha CVP-805B has the wonderful Voices from the Yamaha CFX - Yamaha's finest concert grand piano and the legendary BÖsendorfer Imperial (Yamaha recently acquired BÖsendorfer) , The Yamaha CVP805B Clavinova possesses a sonic palette that is simply stunning. Each key has been sampled individually, and due to binaural sampling techniques, the CVP-805B S gives a fully immersive concert grand piano experience, even when using headphones.

      The Yamaha CVP-805B has the GrandTouch keyboard, which allows pianists to play with nuanced dynamics through the entire range of the instrument, and reproduces the individual differences in the weight and return of each key.


      Obviously the Yamaha CVP-805B has a wide array of backing styles, it allows you to enjoy great-sounding performances with really good introductions and endings, delivering accompaniments that will enhance your playing across a diverse range of musical genres. The CVP-805B comes with dramatically improved sounds within the styles, enriching your performances .

      The CVP-805B Series has amazing spatial acoustics and ensemble functionality so realistic that you can almost feel the presence of the other performers around you.

      From 2 amazing piano samples , breathy saxophones, ringing guitars and warm, resonant strings, the CVP-805B Series features a huge collection of natural instrument Voices. Thanks to acclaimed Super Articulation technology, the distinctive characteristics of each instrument are reproduced in incredible detail as you play.

      The latest Yamaha CVP-805B features all-new samples for instruments such as electric piano, strings, guitar, bass, and drums, delivering sound quality that has to be heard to be believed.

      Distorted guitars, rotary speaker organs, ethereal string, this CVP-805B delivers on all fronts, with unprecedented levels of realism.


      The Yamaha CFX, the flagship 9 foot concert grand piano, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The BÖsendorfer Imperial is a piano known throughout its long history for its classic Viennese sound, warm and haunting. Both are top class pianos characterized by distinctive traits of power, versatility, subtlety and lightness.

      Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology, the Yamaha CVP-805B Clavinova offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist's playing. Sound in an acoustic piano attenuates over a long time. Pianists can change the volume of the sound as well as its dynamics to achieve both mellow and bright tones, just by the way the keys are played .

      The CVP-805B has long, meticulously sampled recordings of each note on a piano, reproduces them in rich detail and utilizes unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions in response to the touch of the player.

      Additionally, the Yamaha Clavinova has been repeatedly tested and adjusted by many exeptional pianists in order to attain a performance feel similar to that of a grand piano.

      The moment a pianist's fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the instrument's tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute its sound. Key-Off samples features actual recordings of these changes, offering a true reproduction of the tiniest changes in the piano's sound.


      In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the whole of the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that blankets the player in sound. This phenomena is reproduced in the Yamaha CVP-805B through enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). It calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard, from one instant to the next, and timing and depth of damper pedals pressed. This technology allows for vivid, bright, richly-varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.


      The CVP-805B incorporates Yamaha's advanced binaural sampling technology that uses samples from the CFX, Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano, recorded with specialized microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural, so enveloping, that you'll soon forget you're even wearing headphones at all.

      Once you choose the Yamaha CFX Grand Voice on the CVP-805B and put headphones on, the binaural sampled sound is automatically ready and no additional settings are required. Now with or without headphones, you can fully enjoy the concert grand experience at home.

      When using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the dispersed sound heard when sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereophonic Optimizer, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos* appear to come from the body of the instrument. This provides a comfortable, natural experience that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.

      * The CFX Voice utilizes binaural sampling technology


      Our fingers are very sensitive, and for pianists, the texture of the piano keys is extremely important. The GrandTouch keyboard features white keys made from the highest quality synthetic ivory, developed independently by Yamaha. The black keys are finished in synthetic ebony. Synthetic ivory keytops reproduce the tactile surface of the real ivory keyboards once used in older acoustic pianos. It features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of practice, while retaining the ideal texture and feel. Resulting from well over a century of experience in making acoustic pianos, this exclusive Yamaha technology achieves a finish that feels natural and comfortable. In addition to the feel, the appearance and fine texture of these keys is unmatched by any other digital piano, and is sure to inspire pianists from the moment they experience it.

      When playing a digital piano, the back area of the keys may prove to be a challenge to full musical expression. This is because the back of the key is closest to the fulcrum of the action. The closer to this pivot point that you strike the key, the less leverage you have and the more strength you need to apply. The greater length of GrandTouch keys give the player MORE leverage, allowing for better expressive control, even at the backs of the keys. This is the same support length found on the Yamaha S3X premium grand piano (as of April 2017), and is the longest support length used on any digital piano.


      Yamaha introduced their Smart Pianist App several years ago. It's a well written and easy to use app with some very clever features. There are hundreds of tuition/practice books in the app. The studies are tried and trusted methods for getting you to play better, improve technique and sight reading. There is something for any standard of player

      Smart Pianist can analyze songs on your smart devices to create chord progressions for you to follow. On the CVP-805B , Smart Pianist features an "Audio To Score" function that creates piano accompaniment scores automatically.

      Smart Pianist can play back both preset and commercially available songs, and allows you to simply listen to them or play along. It also displays notation for hundreds of built-in MIDI songs, and you can even enjoy additional songs for purchase from Yamaha MusicSoft.
