PianoDisc The Intelligent Player System:
Give Your Piano an iQ
The iQ Intelligent Player System can be operated with your choice of any external music player including popular music delivery devices such as MP3, iPod, iPad or Android. With iQ, you can control the piano from any compatible music player, while the SilentDrive HD system delivers a beautiful, fully expressive piano performance — even at whisper-soft levels. PianoDisc’s revolutionary iQ acts as a bridge between today’s latest music playback technology and PianoDisc’s elegant SilentDrive HD reproducing piano system.
Easy to Operate
With the swipe of the hand, iQ makes operating your reproducing player system easier than ever. You can now operate your piano from a familiar device such as your iPad or iPod or Samsung Galaxy. Play, pause, stop and adjust volume, as you normally would, and the piano will respond. All of your music is safely stored on your device or in the cloud.
Smart and Invisible
iQ gives you the flexibility to enjoy a truly invisible system, with no visible electronics mounted on the piano. An Airport WiFi router is mounted underneath the piano to communicate with your iPad, or other mobile device.

Specifically designed by PianoDisc to work with iQ smart technology, the flexible system features include integrated balance control for just the right mix of piano and accompaniment, HD playback with 1,024 levels of dynamic expression playback per note, built-in SD Card and USB slots and repeat and shuffle feature.
