The Disklavier Mark IV performs as a stand-alone unit or as part of the ultimate home audio/video system. With genuine Yamaha speakers, each powered monitor is discretely mounted at an outward angle sending music away from the piano for a more spacious overall sound. For larger audio systems and installations, flexible output routings are provided to send music to any part of the house your system allows. Outputs assigned to areas far from the Disklavier can have a digital piano sound inserted into the audio stream, while keeping a background only mix sounding in areas near the acoustic piano.
Using the Media Center, software can be played directly from the built-in floppy disk and CD drives, and removable USB storage devices*, or loaded to internal memory for easy access. Convenient connections include headphone outputs, microphone input, and USB ports. The retractable glossy, black cover conceals the Media Center and matches the finish of the piano's cabinetry.

Many educational software titles are available with ensemble backgrounds to accompany practice. The Yamaha XG tone generator has hundreds of high-quality instrumental voices to get the most out of your accompaniment.
