If you’re looking at a piano to suit all needs, the Roland RP701 is the perfect package. Sound quality and keyboard feel are the two most important factors when learning to play, and this affordable digital instrument offers bright, rich tone courtesy of Roland’s Supernatural Piano technology, plus the highly playable PHA-4 Standard keyboard for the authentic feel of an acoustic piano.
The RP701 is also designed to be so intuitive to use that even younger players can jump in right away. Easy-to-read icons and a clutter-free front panel ensure that the focus is on playing and enjoyment, not reading the owner’s manual. And with built-in Bluetooth connectivity for streaming music from your smartphone and accessing a world of apps, there’s always something new to try and keep everyone motivated. Fill the room with music via the powerful onboard speakers, sharpen your skills in private with immersive Headphones 3D Ambience, or simply appreciate the traditional look of a high-class piano that brings a note of sophistication to your home.
Just like playing a traditional acoustic grand.
If you’re used to playing your piano teacher’s acoustic, you’ll find the RP701 a smooth transition. This digital piano feels instantly familiar, not only capturing the sound of each note in minute detail, but also reflecting your touch and dynamics. The powerful onboard SuperNATURAL sound engine means you’ll hear all the subtle changes in tone and resonance, just as you would on an acoustic instrument. That lifelike tone is matched by the PHA-4 Standard keyboard, whose escapement and ivory-touch white keys feel just right, even down to the distinctive “click” when each one is played. Also included is a Progressive Damper Action pedal, so you can practice the same half-pedal techniques you’ve learned at music lessons.
Easy to operate. Intuitive to play.
The RP701’s simple controls and friendly icons make it easy for younger players to access all the basics on their own—without having to stand over them. From 300-plus onboard songs and a practice-friendly metronome to recording functions and app connectivity, it’s all right under the fingers. Sit down and enjoy rich, powerful sound from the twin speakers. Or when you want to focus on playing without distractions, simply slide the keyboard lid to hide the control panel, connect headphones, and lose yourself in Headphones 3D Ambience that surrounds you with warm, evocative piano sound.
Fast-track learning with apps and Bluetooth.
Great digital pianos include features that keep the whole family interested, so everyone’s more likely to keep playing. Using Bluetooth audio, you can connect to your tablet or smartphone, stream music through the RP701’s speakers or headphones, and then play along with your favorite artists. And with Bluetooth MIDI, it’s simple to explore online teaching platforms like Skoove and others. Or try the Roland Piano App, which offers musical exercises, recording and evaluation tools, and a One Week Master program to continually build your song repertoire.
