Introducing the Yamaha Arius YDP-165 digital piano

The Yamaha YDP-165 combines the expressive tone of an acoustic piano with the variety of voices and ground-breaking modern technology found in Yamaha’s keyboards to create a unique playing experience.

Designed to fit into any space, the YDP-165 is neat and compact while retaining a full-length keyboard and 3 pedals, as found on an acoustic grand piano. The GH3 keyboard action has 3 sensors to accurately recreate the response of an acoustic grand piano while synthetic ivory and ebony key surfaces give a luxurious and tactile feel.

Every piano in the Yamaha YDP series has a powerful sound and resonant tone accompanied by an authentic acoustic feel. The YDP-S55 will motivate you to keep playing and enable you to express your musical ideas with ease.




CFX grand piano

The new ARIUS models all feature a piano Voice sampled from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano — a renowned piano that delivers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a superbly expressive sound.

All ARIUS models have the same detailed sound — from the lower keys to the higher keys — full of clarity and rich in colourful harmonic content. It gives you extraordinary expressive power and nuance, that authentically resonates in your daily practice as well as your most emotion filled performances.




Feel

With an 88-key piano action, the GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from a naturally heavy feel in the lower keys to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 keyboard even provides a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control. Moreover, there’s a half-damper feature which authentically replicates the damper action of a grand piano, providing rich expressive variation.

One of the allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. All ARIUS models elaborately reproduce this rich sympathetic resonance through a ground-breaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modelling Lite (VRM Lite). VRM Lite creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings, corresponding to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedalling.




Additional features

Naturally, all ARIUS models have an authentic grand piano sound, but they also feature various other built-in instrument sounds, with a total of 10 Voices – including electric piano, organ, vibraphone, and strings.


All ARIUS models also have 353 built-in songs, including 50 famous classical songs, and 303 comprehensive practice exercises from famous composers, such as Beyer, Burgmüller, Czerny, and Hanon. The instrument is also compatible with Yamaha's free Smart Pianist app – simply download the app to your smart device and connect it to the instrument.




Smart Pianist

With the Smart Pianist app, you can easily operate the various Voice functions of the instrument and use it to view scores of the built-in songs. It also features a comprehensive Piano Room function for changing the tonal quality and resonance settings of the piano sound.




Sound balance

All ARIUS models employ new technology that optimally corrects the sound balance according to the volume you set – giving you an exceptionally natural sound that’s easy to listen to and is gentle on the ears, even when playing for a long time. It also has a Stereophonic Optimizer effect that lets you enjoy the natural, spacious sound you experience sitting in front of an acoustic grand piano, even when wearing headphones.

The YDP-165 also uses a newly developed tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet that emanates sound from inside the piano. This allows you to experience the natural sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance similar to that of an acoustic piano.




Design

While based primarily on straight lines, the YDP-165 has a stylish design that incorporates elegant curves that are typical of a grand piano. Moreover, you can choose from a variety of colour variations to find the one that suits your interior and personal taste.
