September 9, 2016, Los Angeles, CA — Roland has announced the DP603 Digital Piano, a stylish home instrument with a slim, modern design. The DP603 features rich, authentic sound with Roland’s latest SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology and a highly expressive playing feel with the new PHA-50 keyboard. Numerous onboard practice features are backed up by Bluetooth® wireless support for a tablet or smartphone, allowing audio playback and connectivity with the latest apps. Blending classic sounds with contemporary design, the Roland DP603 is ideal for the modern piano player.
The DP603 stands apart from other piano models, offering an attractive linear cabinet design that keeps curves and embellishments to a minimum. With a compact depth of just 13.5 inches (35 cm), the instrument is a nice fit for apartments, condos, and other smaller living spaces. An integrated keyboard lid opens to provide a music rest, and closes with a safety-conscious soft-fall motion. The DP603 comes in Polished Ebony, Polished White, or Contemporary Black finishes, allowing users to choose the ideal look to complement their home furnishings.
Behind its minimalist appearance, the DP603 delivers high-end sound and feel with Roland’s advanced piano technologies. Featuring the same SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling sound engine found in the flagship LX/HP models, the DP603 fully recreates the rich, dynamic response of an acoustic grand. The new PHA-50 Progressive Hammer Action Keyboard with Escapement is the perfect complement, offering the latest sensing technology and a combination of wood and ivory-feel materials to provide both authentic playability and lasting durability.
The DP603’s onboard speaker system projects warm, enveloping sound into the surrounding space, with adjustable volume to suit any playing scenario. Via Bluetooth, users can wirelessly stream songs from a smartphone or tablet through the speakers, perfect for both play-along fun and background music for entertaining.
The DP603 also includes many educational features for developing piano skills. The built-in metronome promotes accurate timing, while the onboard recorder lets users capture performances and evaluate their progress. Twin Piano mode splits the piano keyboard into two identical ranges, ideal for playing side-by-side with a teacher or duet partner. And with Headphones 3D Ambience technology, players can enjoy natural, realistic sound in private practice sessions with headphones.
DP603 users can play along with the piano’s built-in classical etudes and exercises, audio and MIDI songs stored on USB memory, or music streamed over Bluetooth. Additionally, Bluetooth MIDI connectivity enables players to enhance their piano experience with Roland’s free Piano Partner 2 app, as well as great apps from Sheet Music Direct, piaScore, and numerous other developers.
The DP603 Digital Piano is offered with street pricing starting at $1999. To learn more, visit Roland.com/us.
