Roland LX17

A full-sized 88-note digital piano, the Roland LX17 is at the top of its game. It looks like an upright piano, it accurately recreates the sound, and plays, with its unique keyboard, just like an acoustic piano. With Bluetooth® technology the LX17 is fully integrated into the modern world.


When hitting a key on the LX17, it does not merely play a recording back to the pianist, it models the complexity and depth of a real acoustic piano sound to create a truly beautiful and authentic audio. This is thanks to the SuperNATURAL sound engine that copies clearly all the aspects of an acoustic piano’s sound, from the soundboard resonance to the tone decay. In combination with limitless polyphony, the LX17 is primed from the most talented pianists.

The 4-way 8-speaker sound system has its potential maximised by the Acoustic Projection arrangement. The main piano sound is emitted through the cabinet speakers; the resonances come through the spatial speakers, overtones and hammer noises are routed through the nearfield speakers, and nearfield tweeters create the finest treble tones available. A functioning lid also operates over the main cabinet speakers, which, when opened, gives a brighter sound to the LX17.

To open up even more possibilities the audio technologies extend to the headphones too. Here 3D Ambience recreates the superlative piano sound for the closeness of headphone listening, rather than merely re-directing the established speaker sound. Making the headphones a haven for true audiophiles.


The Roland LX17 is fitted with a top-class keyboard in the PHA-50 with escapement. Weighted with touch sensitivity the sound responds to the playing of the pianist, just like on a real acoustic piano. This level of engineering is a significant advancement for digital piano keyboards and allows for the full expression of the pianist’s character.

Constructed from an amalgam of wood and plastic the PHA-50 benefits from few maintenance issues; a stabilising pin sustains the integrity of the key’s movement; and the feel mimics the best qualities of ebony and ivory right down to their ability to absorb excess moisture.

With 3 pedals, soft, sostenuto, and sustain, the LX17 is typically well equipped here too, with Progressive Damper Action technology that adds half-pedalling techniques to its repertoire.  


The many digital features of the LX17 are all conveniently accessed immediately above the keyboard and have a small display to optimise recognition of selected features. Piano Designer technology allows the user to alter the overall sound, the instrumental voices, and each individual note. There are many effects that can be brought to bear upon these aspects of the LX17’s sound and the user can save up to 25 of these customisations internally, whilst connectivity provides a route to even more storage.

There are both MIDI and audio recording facilities on the LX17, though audio requires a USB Flash Drive in order to save the .wav file. Bluetooth® connectivity links the LX17 to smart phones and tablets, through which a world of music apps can be accessed for everything from aiding learning to opening up musical scores.

The LX17 also has several physical connections that provide the opportunity for a diverse range of options including attaching external speakers, music players, and sequencers. There is an Input and x2 Output ports, a USB Flash Drive and cable connection, and x2 headphone jacks.
