The Steinway grand is the gold standard of Pianos, representing over 160 years of dedication to craftsmanship and uncompromised expression. It is for these reasons that over 19 out of 20 concert pianists choose the Steinway grand — and why the instrument remains at the heart of cultured homes the world over.
Inspired & Intuitive technology | Piano’s Heaven
The Spirio’s high resolution playback system captures the nuance and passion the Steinway Artist intended by using proprietary software to measure hammer velocity (up to 1020 dynamic levels at a rate of up to 800 samples per second) and proportional pedaling, for both the damper pedal and soft pedal (up to 256 pedal positions at a rate of up to 100 samples per second). The soft trills, delicate pedaling, and thundering fortissimos that separate the world’s finest artists are reproduced with unparalleled accuracy with Spirio, precisely realizing both the pianist’s and the piano’s entire range of motion and emotion.
