Since 1972, Roland has worked to create the ultimate piano experience, and our current HP pianos are among the most exciting yet. The HP piano philosophy is all about bringing the sound and performance of a concert-class piano into your living, teaching, or recital space, with modern connectivity and cabinet color choices to suit your lifestyle. The HP603/HP603A is powered by the latest version of our acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology, along with a unique keyboard that blends wood and molded materials for great feel and durability. With its sophisticated elegance, the classically styled HP603/HP603A will definitely make a big impact in your home, studio, or venue, especially with a choice of finishes including contemporary rosewood, contemporary black, and white.
Both the HP603 and HP603A feature built-in wireless Bluetooth# MIDI support for working with apps like Roland#s Piano Partner 2 and Piano Designer on your smartphone or tablet. The HP603A also includes Bluetooth audio support, allowing you to wirelessly stream music from your mobile device through the piano#s integrated sound system.

SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling for a Rich, Living Piano Sound
Press a key on most digital pianos and you#ll hear a recording of a piano note. But a SuperNATURAL Piano works differently, using the latest modeling technology to recreate, rather than replay, the sound. Our unique modeling process spans the entire sound-creation process of a typical piano, including the combination of notes played, their resonances, and the way in which the piano#s many elements interact with each other. The result is a rich, complex sound # complete with overtones # that actually changes in response to the way you play, something that#s impossible to achieve when a piano uses samples. It#s the difference between just listening back to a recording or actually being there yourself.
Grand Piano Sound Through Your Headphones
One of the great advantages of a digital piano is the ability to play quietly with headphones. However, when used with headphones, some digital pianos simply switch the sound from the speakers to your ears. This is a missed opportunity, as good headphones can provide remarkable clarity and detail when you#re practicing. Roland pianos use Headphones 3D Ambience to optimize the audio so it sounds like it#s coming from within the piano itself, not through your headphones. This provides a very natural and immersive experience, and enables you to practice for extended periods of time without fatigue, any time of the day or night.
The Look and Feel of a Wooden Keyboard, Without the Drawbacks
The wooden piano keyboards often found on acoustic pianos are attractive to look at, and they feel solid and substantial under your fingers. But a completely wooden keyboard is not the best approach for a digital piano, as wooden keys need regular maintenance to keep them in the best condition. The HP603/HP603A has a new type of keyboard that blends wood and molded material for the best of both worlds; beautiful wooden sides give each key a familiar, rigid mass that feels just right to play, while the durable inner frame means you can enjoy your Roland piano every day for years to come without worrying about reliability. You can play it every night too, as our piano key construction produces a minimal amount of #thump# noise when played.
Plays Like an Acoustic Grand Piano
It#s not just the feel of the keys # the way they move is also important. Each key on the HP603/HP603A has a stabilizing pin to ensure the vertical travel is smooth and precise, avoiding the sideways key movement and noise experienced when playing glissandos on some pianos. Since the HP603/HP603A has our latest piano engine onboard, we also retuned the key sensing system to match it, so that the sound and keyboard work in complete harmony for the ultimate piano experience. Finally, the keys share the look and feel of real ebony and ivory, and their moisture-absorbing properties mean your fingers won#t slide off when playing.
Connect Your Smartphone or Tablet via Bluetooth and Use Apps to Make Learning Easy
Today, people often play and learn the piano with the aid of smartphones and tablets. Using Bluetooth technology, the HP603/HP603A wirelessly connects to your mobile device, enabling you to take advantage of popular iOS/Android MIDI music apps. Roland#s unique Piano Partner 2 app shows digital notation for the piano#s internal songs, and you can even turn pages with the pedals. It also provides a variety of fun backing rhythms to build your timing, plus lots of useful practice tools and more. And with the Piano Designer app, you can access the piano#s powerful Piano Designer functions from the convenience of your device#s touch display.
While the HP603 and HP603A models both support Bluetooth MIDI, the HP603A supports Bluetooth audio as well. This lets you wirelessly stream audio from a smartphone or tablet directly through the HP603A#s integrated sound system. You can play along with songs from your music library or online sites, and have a more connected experience with all the great piano education content that#s available on the web. And when you just want to relax, the HP603A#s high-quality speaker system delivers rich stereo sound for simple listening enjoyment.
*The Bluetooth feature may not be available depending on the country where you purchase this product.
Elegant Design, Classic Lines, Timeless Sound
Although it#s packed with advanced technology, the HP603/HP603A is reassuringly traditional when it comes to style. Combining classic lines with a space-conscious design, there are three premium finishes available: contemporary rosewood and easy-to-clean contemporary black or white. Once your piano is home, you don#t even need to press the power button to get started # just open the lid and start playing.
