But still, I’m wondering if a new LX is in the horizon; because the current has been out for five years.
I owned the LX-17, and the thing I liked the most was the action; however, the sound-engine, speakers, and cabinet (cheap) were a letdown.
When I compared the LX-17 to Pianoteq (5 or 6) the latter was miles ahead, and despite the instrument’s huge subwoofers and many speakers, there was something not-right about the sound/stereo imaging.
I’ve never looked back (at Roland) since, however, I did like the LX-708 uni-body (one piece) cabinet design, the extra height, and extra depth.
Purportedly, the “Pure-Acoustic” improved on the “Super-Natural,” and supposedly the -rebranded- engine in the new GPs, whilst the same as the previous, uses “improved algorithms” for note detection (according to Stu).
I’d probably be willing to give a new LX model a chance; especially if Yamaha doesn’t come out with a new Clavinova soon.
The uni-body design is a big deal for me; because the two-part (top-bottom) design bothers me whence I see “the line” connecting top to bottom (I also like the Kawai CA-901 uni-body design).
