Craft & Science

While the SPIRIO R represents a revolutionary advancement in musical technology, it can also be enjoyed just like any other Steinway. It is for their dynamic resonance, powerful sound and unrivalled response that Steinway pianos are chosen as the preferred instrument by concert pianists and everyday players the world over. The SPIRIO R invites players to enjoy the deep, warm tone of a Steinway with the unique ability to recreate live performances on the same instrument.

For over 165 years, the Steinway plate has been a marker of excellence. Today, the SPIRIO R continues this legacy by preserving a rich history of music and offering professional musicians and students of music alike the experience of enjoying magical performances in the comfort of their own homes. This exclusive high-resolution player piano faithfully recreates live performances, capturing every nuanced gradation of hammer velocity, the dynamic resonance from proportional pedalling, and the spirit of music as it is meant to be enjoyed,
