Introducing the Yamaha Arius YDP-S34 digital piano

Built on the same principles of the YDPS52, a YDP163 in a slimline cabinet, the new YDPS34 is the lower model YDP143... you guessed it... in a slimline cabinet! It has slightly better amplifiers though, 2 x 8 watt to produce a richer and more authentic sound, and improved reverb and damper resonance so that it sounds much more like the 'real-thing'.

Ideal for the beginner/intermediate player, Yamaha's go-to entry level key action, the GHS Graded Hammer Standard, is responsive and provides a good level of resistance, well weighted and balanced with matt black sharps for enhanced grip. It offers everything you need as a beginner musician, a realistic touch, good quality sound and some useful features such as a two-track record facility and metronome to help you along the way.

Available in black walnut, white ash, and white finishes, this digital piano provides options to match the interior design of your music making space.

Modern & stylish

With modern homes becoming increasingly compact, the Arius YDP-S34 offers a creative and contemporary approach to the digital piano. Its stylish and discrete design brings elegance to any room while continuing to deliver amazing sound quality.

Music that easily fits into your life

Life can be busy, but we all need to take time to do the things we love. Bringing the enjoyment of playing music into you life should be simple. With the Arius YDP-S34 digital piano, you can count on a high-quality instrument that doubles as a stylish piece of furniture, also with incredible sound quality.

Designed for an authentic acoustic piano experience

Yamaha has over a century of acoustic pianomaking heritage and has tapped into this experience when designing digital pianos. From the moment you open the lid, sit down, and start playing, you'll be immersed in the sound of the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. The 88 Graded Hammer Standard keys replicate the touch of a grand piano, giving you an authentic acoustic piano experience.

An authentic, expressive piano experience

Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, and is similar to an acoustic piano. Meanwhile, newly designed speakers can deliver a very powerful sound from low to high notes. The YDP-S34 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion by utilising the following Yamaha technology.

The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano

The Yamaha flagship 9’ CFX concert grand piano offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

The Stereophonic Optimizer—a new kind of headphone experience

When using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the dispersed sound heard when sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereophonic Optimizer, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos appear to come from the body of the instrument. This provides a comfortable, natural experience that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.

Acoustic Optimizer

The speakers attached to the case exhibit a phenomenon in which, if nothing is done, the volume of the sound will increase due to the resonant frequency of the material. However, installing Acoustic Optimizers with the same resonant frequency within the body of the piano suppresses this resonance. This improvement of the sound is something that has only been possible thanks to Yamaha‘s thorough knowledge of the internal acoustic characteristics of musical instruments.

Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) - for comfortable practice at home

At low volumes, bass and treble used to be difficult to hear; however, YDP-S34 is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced piano tones at any volume level.
