Spirio R

Presenting Spirio R

The STEINWAY SPIRIO R is the world’s finest high-resolution player piano capable of live performance capture and playback. A revolutionary blend of artistry, craftsmanship, and technology, SPIRIO R provides powerful new tools of expression and new ways to access, share and experience performance — enriching connection and intimacy. SPIRIO R stores and plays music and videos directly from the instrument, with immediate response and uninterrupted playback. SPIRIO R captures the most nuanced musical passages, precisely reproducing the loudest, softest and fastest notes.

‘Buying a piano does not have to mean waiting for a pianist to play it at home. It’s a major leap, a milestone — with superb craftsmanship.’




Craft & Science

First and foremost, Spirio R can be played like any other Steinway, the instrument artists have chosen for over 165 years for its broad palette, warmth and depth of tone, powerful resonance and unmatched touch response.

Much like the megapixel revolution of the digital camera, Spirio R offers exclusive high-resolution recording, preserving all the music: every nuanced dynamic level from infinitesimal gradations of hammer velocity, and every shade of resonance from proportional pedalling – now at your fingertips.

The artisans at Steinway & Sons seamlessly install Spirio R technology at the time of manufacture, ensuring no alteration in the musical performance nor compromise in the instrument’s beauty.

High-Resolution Recording

The Spirio R permits users to record and listen to performances in stunning state-of-the-art high resolution – with all the nuance, power and passion on display.
