Today's article continues our 5-part review series on the Clavinova CLP line at YamahaMusician.com. Ah the beauty of a grand. There's nothing like the sound and touch of a grand so we demoed the CLP 265GP, a special edition Grand Piano Clavinova CLP.


The Clavinova CLP 265GP is essentially the CLP 230 with a twice as powerful sound system (2 x 40W amp systems with 4 speakers) in a grand piano cabinet (just under 4') available in polished ebony only.

To become familiar and understand the CLP 265GP's features, please read our CLP 230 review.


We really loved the look of the Clavinova CLP 265GP's grand piano cabinet. Plus, the more powerful sound system adds even more depth and dynamics to an already high quality piano!
