Yamaha Arius YDP144 Digital Piano
The Yamaha Arius YDP-144 Digital Piano an excellent choice of instrument for the student or keen hobbyist. Utilizing Yamaha's digital piano experience, the YDP144 puts an authentic piano-like feel and great sound into an affordable instrument that is a perfect option for the home.
Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano has been newly sampled for the Yamaha YDP-144, allowing for a rich, expressive piano sound with sparkling highs and resonant lows. The Yamaha CFX has gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands in recent times, and with the YDP-144 you have access to a taste of this wonderful instrument.
The Damper Response adds depth to the tone whilst pedaling and thanks to the reverb spatial effects, you can get the sound of the piano across various environments. There are 10 voices in total with the ability to have dual/layers and a duo mode that enables two people to play at the same time.
Yamaha's Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the sound automatically to allow players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level, allowing for a great tone whether at room-filling volumes or quiet practice times. Tonal quality and aural satisfaction are also improved courtesy of the Stereophonic Optimizer, letting players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano and even when wearing headphones.
Not only does the YDP144 sound great but thanks to the Graded Hammer Action keyboard (with matte black keytops) the feel is great too. Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier feel while the higher ones are lighter to the touch, and thanks to its huge 192 note polyphony, any complex piano piece can be played without fear of dropped notes.
Yamaha's very own Smart Pianist app will allow you to add more functionality to the piano. You'll be able to adjust settings, select voices, record performances, and it'll even help you learn your favourite songs that are in your Music Library.
The newly designed speaker system ensures an excellent balance of power and clarity, delivering rich low frequencies and superb, clear highs that compliment all of the onboard voices.
Other features include 10 demo songs, a recording function, the standard acoustic piano 3-pedal layout and dual headphone socket for silent practice.
The Yamaha ARIUS YDP-144 is a superb home digital piano that delivers a fulfilling, acoustic piano-like experience in a compact and attractive design, and with its affordable price point its another great digital piano from Yamaha.
