Priced at $499, the Grand Piano X1 launches in Stellar Gray, White, and Black and has been designed to complement any room décor and design seamlessly.
According to Kygo:
This marks an exciting time for X by KYGO, as we unveil a new look and feel of the brand in addition to a product collection unlike anything we've ever created before. It was important to me that all the new products and designs used the same technology that creates the soundscapes and frequencies I use to produce music, and I'm really looking forward to continuing to share the gift of music with consumers everywhere who are looking for a premium listening experience, no matter the genre.
The Xellence and Grand Piano X1 will be available through the X by KYGO website and at select retailers this spring.
