Many thanks to Bill Brandom, Senior Technical Manager of the Piano Division of Yamaha Corporation of America in Buena Park, California, and his team for making this PianoSmart Upgrade for the DCD1 so well documented and easily available. This upgrade, as opposed to a simple software update, represents an enormous amount of work to enable older Disklaviers to use audio technology with a minimum amount of expense.
Yamaha provides a FREE PianoSmart Operation Manual that thoroughly documents the new features and provides more details than the excerpts I have posted here. You can order a manual from your Yamaha piano dealer or call 1-800-854-1569.
