Focusing on the acoustic piano’s essential mechanism of resonating sounds

When you press the piano keys, its hammer strikes the corresponding strings, and the strings vibrate. The initial sound is small, but the soundboard amplifies it with the entire body of the piano serving as a resonator. The result: the distinctly rich sound of an acoustic piano. TransAcoustic™ technology deftly employs this mechanism of resonance keyed by the soundboard.

Creating acoustic sound from digital audio sources

TransAcoustic™ technology does not rely on speaker units to produce sound; instead, transducers are used. Transducers convert audio source signals into vibrations, and then relay them to the soundboard. The soundboard amplifies the vibrations, and the entire piano vibrates sympathetically. Even digital audio sources go through the same mechanism of resonance, so that the sound that reaches your ears is as rich as that of an acoustic piano.

Specially designed transducers for acoustic pianos

Commonly used transducers are too heavy to install on soundboards since the transducer weight compromises the soundboard's essential functions. In response, Yamaha developed transducers specifically for acoustic pianos, designing them such that only the lightweight vibrating parts are installed on the soundboard. This allows faithful reproduction of the sound of an acoustic piano.
