The STEINWAY SPIRIO remains a fully-functioning STEINWAY & SONS piano, with the same level of painstaking craftsmanship that goes into every single instrument Steinway produces.

Each month, new music, videos and curated playlists are released and featured in our Spirio Spotlight.
The high resolution library of repertoire is recorded in the STEINWAY & SONS Studios by a roster of over 1,700 Steinway Artists, exclusively for the STEINWAY SPIRIO, as well as significant historical performances by Steinway Immortals.
Spirio’s high resolution playback system uses proprietary software to measure hammer velocity (up to 1020 dynamic levels at a rate of up to 800 samples per second) and proportional pedaling — for both the damper pedal and soft pedal (up to 256 pedal positions at a rate of up to 100 samples per second).
The steinway & sons spirio reveals the subtlety and passion of an artist’s original performance. Soft trills, delicate pedaling, and thundering fortissimos present no difficulty for spirio — and are reproduced with unparalleled accuracy. The result is a precise revelation of the pianist’s entire range of motion and emotion.
The powerful Steinway sound, the ever-expanding content library and high resolution technology are all easily accessible through the STEINWAY SPIRIO app — an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.
A complimentary iPad® is included with the purchase of a Spirio.
