The Broadway MK11 is the UK's most popular self-playing digital baby grand piano in the UK.
It can be played either as a normal piano or can be set to play all by itself on the virtual player (self-play) mode.
In the self playing mode the piano plays music, and the keys move up and down on their own. It's like having an invisible pianist.
You also get a remote control with it... so you can select the songs from a distance!
This piano has been supplied to many private homes and businesses.
If you own a restaurant, bar, or hotel, then the Broadway can entertain your customers endlessly without needing to stop for a break. And it doesn't require any beer to function ;-)
Joking aside, this piano is so versatile. It has over 1000 popular songs built-in to its memory: from Classical to Jazz to Rock to Pop to Gospel and so much more. It also has Christmas carols.
It's memory capacity is large, so you can download hundreds more songs by saving a midi file to the USB stick provided.
If you would rather have a pianist play, then no problem.
It's a high class piano with a great surround sound speaker system and wooden keyboard.
Its tone is so real and it feels like you're playing on a real concert grand piano.
If you want the 100% authentic look, just close the lid over the control panel so it conceals the buttons.
There's also hundreds of built-in instrument voices and tones; also rhythms and accompaniment.
The Broadway MK11 has a beautifully warm, deep, sonorous tone. It has wooden keys, so it feels firm, just like the real thing, all of which makes it such a favourite.

The Abundant Sound of the ROS V.5 Plus (Real Orchestra Sound Version 5+).
The ROS V.5 Plus sound source combines an innovative and unique sampling technology with the sound of finest European grand pianos to produce its refreshingly new sound. With the innovative and unique sampling technology in one pocket, and the sound of the finest European grand pianos in the other, the ROS V.5 Plus sound source now enjoys a new birth in its refreshingly new sounds.
It has a uniquely expressive tone colour, its sound deeply resonating with its player providing the most satisfactory playing experience. Equipped with the sounds of top tier European grand pianos, the ROS V.5 Plus employs the large-capacity MLFSS (Multi Layered Full Scale Sound) to offer its two distinguished grand piano voices. One button click is all that takes to pick your choice that suits your music. These quality grand piano voices could serve many kinds of musical interests.
Supporting high-capacity memory and diverse expression
The abundant sound of a digital piano requires a memory space that is large enough to contain the high-resolution samples.
The ROS V5 Plus supports a total of 8Gb of memory in order to store all its large-sized MLFSS (Multi Layered Full Scale Sound) and MLS (Multi Layered Sound) sources.
The MLFSS (Multi Layered Full Scale Sound), with its extremely large data size, assigns separate sample data to each portion of dynamic range which is divided into many levels, allowing natural expression of forte and piano. To play it is like to have many different types of high-end grand pianos in one hand, due to its inclusion of diverse grand piano sounds with differing characters. With this wide selection of grand piano voices, all genres and styles ranging from 18th century Baroque to contemporary music are fully covered, its expression more accurately in the character of the style.
The deeply resounding resonance of the grand piano
When a grand piano is played it produces a variety of different sounds that are not directly resulting from the keystroke – the product of various resonance phenomenon. It captures each of them into its digital pianos in order to provide more authentic piano-playing experience.
This feature, called the Acoustic Simulator, allows to closely emulate the characteristics of acoustic piano sounds. String resonance, damper resonance, damper samples and key-off sounds are all included in the samples as to bring the sensational experience of hearing the sound of a concert grand in a resonance-optimised concert hall. The string resonance emulates the vibrations of sympathetic strings that occur when playing a grand piano. While a note is being held down, playing an additional note whose frequency is a multiple of the first one causes all strings sympathetic with that overtone series to vibrate. This resonance effect is applied to the sounds so that the authentic grand piano sound is replicated allowing for fully resonant harmony.
The damper resonance refers to the particular resonance effect that takes place when using the damper pedal. When the pedal is pressed all dampers inside the piano are lifted from the strings, and it is the sound resulting from the interaction between notes and dampers that is sampled. Differing effects are provided depending on the depth the pedal is pressed. Also, the damper samples capture the natural vibrations of all free strings except the ones played, with the dampers raised above the strings.
The Key-off sound emulates the subtle sound that occurs as a key is released. It recreates the sound of dampers falling back onto their respective strings as the pianist releases his or her hand off the keys, allowing for more realistic playing.
These in-depth resonance and other subtle components of piano sound, along with the brand new enhanced keyboard is designed to provide natural playing experience, embellished with all-natural touch, response and sound.
256 Maximum Polyphony
Larger number of maximum polyphony allows a digital piano to play more notes simultaneously without running out of handling capacity which causes loss of earlier notes. There is a maximum 256 notes of polyphony in the Broadway MK11, which is enough to fully support the performance by professional pianists.
Equaliser System for Customising
The equaliser system divides the full frequency range of piano sounds into four levels consisting of high (~2.6KHz), middle-high (~1KHz), middle-low (~300Hz) and low (~115Hz), and allows to adjust the volume of each frequency range independently. 8 types of preset EQ is included, as well as the option to fully customise your own frequency-volume settings, and you are free to perform with the sound of your choice. Wood keyboard ARHA-3W conveys the feeling of real keys that every pianist desires.
The RHA-3W was born with the sole objective of creating a keyboard as close as possible to acoustic piano keys, and presents the best qualities of acoustic key touch on a digital piano. Enjoy the sensation, with the new MK11 digital baby grand player piano.
Before making it to the keys, the wood used for RHA-3W goes through processes identical with those that are used to create acoustic piano keys, then is subjected to careful inspection. This detailed process ensures that the keys would be of fine quality and close to the feel, weight and touch of acoustic piano keys.
Graded Key Hammer Action
In order to better represent the touch response of acoustic piano keys, the keys of RHA-3W grows in weight as it moves towards the bass and vice versa, allowing the pianist more natural control over the keys.
Triple Sensor System
The triple sensor system of RHA-3W, a creation of technical expertise, allow extremely fine key movements to speak out. Equipped with three sensors that keep track of the subtlest movements of the keys, RHA-3W reacts more sensitively to the movement of its keys and translates that motion into a realistic and breathing piano performance.
Virtual Pianist System
The Virtual Pianist is a feature that ‘performs’ its keyboard automatically in accordance with a demo piece that is being played. This used to be something that was only possible by adding on an expensive device to an already expensive acoustic piano, but the technology came up with a self-playing system independently, requiring no additional devices and easily accessed via simple controls.
There is a free music library consisting of about 1,300 pieces coming from different genres to be played through the player system for enjoyment, without needing an accomplished pianist.
USB TO HOST & DEVICE
- Convenient MIDI Access
Connect to a computer or an external MIDI device via USB MIDI using the USB TO HOST terminal to gain access to all MIDI related projects and performances.
- Recording and Playing
Recording is easily accessible by connecting to external devices (computers, tablets or smartphones) via USB audio, and playing recorded material is just as simple. The piano is also capable of playing music files stored in an MP3 player. The USB features support Windows/Mac/iOS/Android systems. Actual compatibility may vary depending on the specific version and the types of the app.
Pianists control the amount of sustain they get when using the damper pedal by adjusting how deep they press it. In order to further enhance playing experience, it incorporates the half pedal feature which is designed to respond to the depth of the pedal to provide the players with the ability to perform the delicate control that they exercise on acoustic pianos.
Volume Control of Resonance Effects
The acoustic grand is a source of many different resonance phenomenon. Having captured these subtle elements of piano sound into its digital lineups, there is also the option to control the strength of these various resonance effects so that anyone would be able to set up the configuration that suits oneself.
- Damper Resonance Volume Control
- String Resonance Volume Control
- Damper Resonance Sound Volume Control
- Key-off Sound Volume Control
- Mechanical Noise Sound Volume Control
Acoustic grand pianos have some variations in the frequencies of overtones depending on the tension and stiffness of the strings, and a unique tuning method called stretched tuning is employed to compensate for it. This method tunes the low notes lower than their actual pitches and the high notes higher, addressing the balance between the overtones of notes and therefore reducing the dissonance that occurs as multiple notes are played simultaneously.
Once fully set, the full configuration (voices, parameters etc.) of the piano may be stored to one of the registration memory slots to be recalled later for future access. A performer may recall his/her favourite configuration with surprising convenience.
Auto Power Off
In order to conserve energy and reduce power consumption, this piano is equipped with an auto power management system that turns the power off following 30 minutes of inactivity.
The smart box is located on the top of the panel for ergonomic concerns, facilitating convenient connections with external devices and easier access to smart features.
Fully Dimensional Sound System
Equipped with high-end spec woofer and tweeter speakers, the MK11 produces a more realistic sound than ever before. Its 2-way, 6 speaker composition offers abundant and powerful sound.
LCD Display / Data Wheel
The LCD is easy to read, and even easier to control with the data wheel, providing an altogether intuitive interface for the users.
