There are times when a player needs the touch of a fine piano without the tone. When the baby is sleeping, children are studying, people are sharing the room, or neighbors need quiet, you want an instrument that offers the natural touch of an acoustic piano, but sound that only you can hear. The solution has arrived!
AnyTime X2 instruments incorporate an acoustic muting feature with powerful digital audio components, allowing pianists to continue enjoying the distinctive feeling of a traditional piano, while listening discretely using private headphones.
• Players who want the touch of an acoustic piano with the privacy of headphones.
• Late night or early morning practice without disturbing family or neighbors.
• Apartment living where piano practice is restricted to specific hours of the day.
• Homes where the piano must share space with computers and other media devices.

Why choose ATX2
Integrated Hammer Sensing System
A fine acoustic piano entices musicians to perform with enthusiasm, spontaneity and passion. Yet, the satisfaction that one enjoys when hammers strike the strings is often diluted by traditional piano silencing techniques. Sensors located below the keyboard struggle to accurately interpret the subtleties of musical expression, which is why AnyTimeX2 pianos integrate sensors within the fine workings of the piano action, reading the precise movements of each hammer. Whether performing rapid passages that demand the same key be played repeatedly before returning to its natural starting position, or pianissimo pieces desiring the very softest of key strokes, the Integrated Hammer Sensing System (IHSS) represents the elaborate nuances of every note.
Digital operation greatly extends the capabilities of the AnyTimeX2 piano beyond that of a traditional acoustic instrument, with convenient transpose and tuning facilities, a metronome and song recorder, and a selection of high fidelity sounds suitable for various musical occasions.
Dual headphone sockets provide greater flexibility for academic institutions, while other connectors allow a range of creative music-making opportunities.
Digital Piano Flexibility
Concealed Control Panel
The slide-out control panel discretely placed below the keybed incorporates a large LCD display and an array of buttons, providing convenient access to digital features without diminishing the piano’s traditional appearance.
