Nord tells us that they are excited to present their first binaural piano recording, The Royal Grand 3D, taking the Nord piano experience to a new level. Here's the story in their own words...

The Royal Grand 3D is our first piano recorded using a dummy head microphone and is a premium concert piano with an elegant, natural and well-balanced tone.

The dummy head is shaped like an average sized human head, equipped with ear shaped microphones, in order to reproduce the human hearing experience. The Royal Grand 3D was recorded with the dummy head placed in the player's position to capture a natural and authentic experience of actually sitting in front of the piano.

This binaural recording technique is designed for headphone playback, but the Royal Grand 3D sounds amazing on regular stereo speakers too.
