    Background: To avoid discord between aspiring pianists during practice time and members of the family, a Tokyo plano manufacturer launched this month the "Pianet". Its electrically-sounded notes are only heard by the student - through earphones.

    If everybody in the family wants to hear the "Pianet", a switch will transmit the notes through its two amplifiers. Here a family watch a television show while their musical daughter practises without disturbing them - or the neighbours.

    This "Planet" costs less than half the price of a piano of the same size.
