Model Comparison *Bold shows upgrades from the previous model:
The CLP-635 incorporates the sound of two of the world's finest grands, and also includes brand new technology - Yamaha's new Enhanced VRM engine - to make the clavinova not only sound like an acoustic grand, but respond like one too.
These detailed piano settings can be accessed and controlled through the new user interface and new Piano Room feature. The control panel of CLP-635 makes settings quick and easy to access, including the two feature sounds - the CFX and Bosendorfer Inperial. These voices are part of a total of 36 sounds making the CLP-635 extremely versatile.
The 30w x 2 speaker system in CLP-635 has been designed to provide tich and depth and crystal clear clarity - achieved in part with the inclusion of two new 16cm speakers.
CLP-635 features a GH3X keyboard which brings a gradually weighted feel complete with escapement and synthetic ebony and ivory key tops, 303 classic piano lessons are also included, alongside 50 piano songs.
The ability to connect a USB memory stick to CLP-635 brings many benefits, not least the ability to record and play back real ausio files, while the binaural sampling, music rest clips, 30 rhythms and optional wireless connectivity to iOS devices further enhance the impressive piano.
Step Up to CLP-645:
The step up to CLP-645 brings many important enhancements to both piano playing and additional features. The CLP-645 features a better keyboard, NWX, with wooden keys alongside a significant ugrade to speaker technology - there are 4 speakers in CLP-645, prividing a big change in the sound of the piano. The CLP-645 is also the first model to feature the popular bluetooth audio technology.
Step Down to CLP-625:
The step down to CLP-625 from CLP-635 is far greater than just a major design alteration. A change of speakers and loss of enchanced VRM engine results in a dramatic difference in sound. Features such as the new user interface, piano room, large number of voices ad included lessons are also lost.
The step down to CLP-625 would also result in less colour options.
