Korg has announced the LP-180 Digital Piano, which they tells us features rich, expressive, realistic piano sounds based on the latest Korg technology. Here's what Korg has to say...

This slim, 88-note piano combines the sounds and action from Korg's affordable SP-170 stage piano with the modern aesthetic of Korg's flagship LP-380 lifestyle piano. The slim-line cabinet fits easily into nearly any environment, and the two available finishes complement nearly any décor--chic black or elegant white. When not in use, the LP-180 can enhance any living space or commercial location. With a smooth top/keyboard cover, and no exposed hinges, it can easily blend into a room--ideal for apartment dwellers, churches, restaurants, or anyone looking for a space-saving, visually striking digital piano.

Although compact in design, the LP-180 offers a remarkably accurate acoustic piano experience. It's equipped with Korg's NH (Natural Weighted Hammer Action) keyboard, ensuring that the nuances of playing dynamics will be expressively reflected when playing sounds such as piano or electric piano. The LP-180 is accurately weighted like a traditional piano, with a heavier touch in the lower ranges, becoming progressively lighter in the higher registers. Additionally, all three pedals from a concert grand are included (damper, soft and sostenuto), with half-pedaling supported by the damper and soft pedal.

The LP-180's high-quality piano sounds contain stereo samples from a concert grand piano taken at two velocities to clearly reproduce playing dynamics. Ten different sound variations round out the onboard offerings, which include piano, electric piano, vibraphone, pipe organ, and strings.

A robust sound system is integrated into the unit's cabinet. Two large 10-cm speakers are mounted in a bass-reflex chamber and powered by a pair of 11-Watt amplifiers, for rich, refined sound. For private use, dual headphone outputs allow parent and child, student and teacher, or friends to share the instrument.

Pricing and Availability:
The Korg LP-180 Digital Piano will be available in May with a U.S. Street price of $699.
