HPi-50e: Digital Piano

The piano that teaches you how to play it

Imagine a piano with a colour screen showing sheet music and exercises to help you improve. That’s the HPi-50e in a nutshell, a digital piano for anyone wanting to improve their playing. It combines Roland’s SuperNATURAL piano engine with a powerful set of speakers (called Acoustic Projection) and an authentic Ivory Feel keyboard action to replicate the sound and feel of a world-class concert grand piano.

But the HPi-50 is all about that big colour screen, called DigiScore, which is housed in the music rest. The DigiScore system displays digital sheet music (and even turns the page for you) with a choice of over 400 built-in songs. You can even add other songs via SMF data (also known as Standard MIDI Files). A wide range of exercises and games make learning fun for everyone. Younger children will love to earn ‘medals’ for their progress, while older players will appreciate the ability to perfect their playing technique and notation reading.

Roland HP-508 : Digital Piano

The ultimate home piano with a six-speaker sound system

The flagship HP508 digital piano offers the ultimate blend of style, feel and sound. Like the other two models in the range, the HP508 is based on the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, but earns its place at the top of the table thanks to it’s glorious cabinet design and six-speaker Acoustic Projection system. If you appreciate the finer things in life - be it design, craftsmanship or performance - the HP508 will make you happy every time you play it.

So what’s better than a four-speaker system that envelops the player in warm, rich sound? How about six speakers? The HP508’s premium six-speaker Acoustic Projection system is the jewel in the crown, producing a sound so pure that if you closed your eyes, you’d swear you were playing an acoustic piano. The piano’s low, mid and high timbres are intelligently blended and projected into the air around you, accurately recreating the sound field of an acoustic grand piano. And for the player this is great news; you get the emotion and character found in acoustic pianos, with all the advantages of a digital piano.

You also get the same highly-sensitive PHA-4 Concert-class keyboard found on the HP506, and as you play the keys, hear the SuperNATURAL Piano sound, and feel the Acoustic Projection speakers all working together, you’ll realise that the HP508 is a digital piano quite unlike any other.

Available in three finishes, contemporary black, rosewood and polished ebony, the HP508 is also the largest piano in the range. With a more imposing design compared to the other models, this is the piano for those who like to make a statement, with bold, confident lines, sturdy front legs and an overall feeling of strength, prestige and stateliness. And you still get everything that makes the other HP pianos so enjoyable to play, including the Piano Designer, 3D Headphones sound, built-in recorder, USB connectivity, free Roland piano apps and no need for tuning - ever.

Available in contemporary black, rosewood or polished ebony finishes.

  • Enjoy superior sound with SuperNATURAL Piano, which delivers the rich, complex tone of an authentic acoustic grand
  • New PHA-4 Concert Keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel features Roland’s latest high-resolution touch-detection technology

Roland HP-506 : Digital Piano

The classic home piano with a four-speaker sound system

Building on the features of the HP504 comes the bigger-brother HP506, aimed at everyone from young students to more advanced players. This mid-range HP piano uses the same SuperNATURAL sound engine as the other models in the series, but introduces the Acoustic Projection sound system, PHA-4 Concert-class keyboard and a gorgeous polished ebony colour option.

Most digital pianos use a single pair of speakers to project the sound. And even though this approach is fine for everyday use, those who want an even better sound should try the Acoustic Projection system. The HP506 has four speakers, instead of two, which are positioned so the player is enveloped in a rich, warm sound that’s far closer to an acoustic piano. As you play, you’ll notice the sound coming from where it would in an acoustic piano, making you feel a real connection with the instrument.

The HP506’s keyboard has also been upgraded to our PHA-4 Concert-class. First, it’s highly sensitive and able to capture the most subtle nuances of your playing; we believe that SuperNATURAL pianos offer the most expressive playability of any digital piano, so it makes sense to develop a keyboard to match it. The keys replicate the unique appearance, touch and moisture-absorbing properties of genuine ebony and ivory, and are a world apart from cheaper keyboards that play about as well as they look. The key action is quieter than previous models too, so you won’t disturb others when playing with headphones.

With three finishes available - contemporary black, rosewood and polished ebony - classic elegance is still very much in vogue, with a timeless design that’s as nice to look at as it is to play. And of course, you also get everything that makes the HP504 so enjoyable to use, including the Piano Designer, 3D Headphones sound, built-in recorder, USB connectivity, free Roland piano apps and no tuning costs.

Available in contemporary black, rosewood or polished ebony finishes.

  • Enjoy superior sound with SuperNATURAL Piano, which delivers the rich, complex tone of an authentic acoustic grand
  • New PHA-4 Concert Keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel features Roland’s latest high-resolution touch-detection technology

Roland HP-504: Digital Piano

The affordable home piano with classic design, sound and feel

It might be the most affordable piano in Roland’s HP range, but the entry-level HP504 will still make your head turn. Available in rosewood or contemporary black, the HP504 is a modern classic, with an elegant, understated look that brings a touch of class into your home.

The SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine found in all Roland pianos has been enhanced further for the HP504 with a Dynamic Harmonic feature for fortissimo playing, while the new PHA-4 Premium Keyboard with Escapement and Ivory Feel includes the latest touch-sensing technology to fully explore SuperNATURAL Piano’s rich tonal variations and natural dynamics.

One of the major benefits of digital pianos is that you can use headphones, so you don’t interrupt others while you practise. Most pianos don’t take this into account though, and the sound you hear from the headphones can be dull and uninspiring - not ideal, as you’ll probably use headphones often. But now with the HP504 you’ll enjoy the unique sound field of an acoustic piano during your private practice sessions, thanks to the Headphones 3D Ambience effect.

There are other benefits of owning a digital piano too. The HP504 never needs tuning and it features a built-in recorder so you can record your playing, and then listen back to evaluate your playing skills. You can connect a USB key containing your favourite songs and listen to them through the HP504’s speakers and then play along on top. And if you’re bored of a classic grand piano sound, you can play with smooth electric pianos, jazzy organs or majestic strings.

Finally, recognising that even the most devoted piano lover needs a little fun sometimes, the HP504 works with Roland's free iOS piano apps, so it’s easy to use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to enhance your learning and have more fun with the piano.

Available in contemporary black or rosewood finishes.
