The Aphex Aural Exciter was used in 1975 through 1977 with the Steinway Grand Piano.

...As an E.Q. we used a thing called Aphex Aural Exciter. I'd suppose you'd say it was an emphasizer; it gave the piano sparkle. Otherwise it can sound very flat or dull through a pickup. - John Paul Jones, 1977 Keyboard Player

The first Aural Exciter units were available exclusively on the rental basis of $30 per minute of finished recorded time. The unit became so popular, especially with the Los Angeles music and recording studio scene, that Aphex had to move to Hollywood.`
