Authentic sound, natural touch and an absolute joy to play in an advanced, yet affordable console digital piano.
Attractive wood cabinetry and Yamaha's heritage in piano craftsmanship make ARIUS/YDP the premier name in entry-level console digital pianos.
Perfect for beginning students and experienced players alike, the ARIUS series provides true piano touch and tone. The Graded Hammer keyboards of the YDP-162/YDP-181/YDP-S51/YDP-C71PE and the Graded Hammer Standard keyboard of the YDP-142 make it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. PureCF sampling in the YDP-142/YDP-162/YDP-S51 delivers the tone of Yamaha's acclaimed CFIIIS concert grand piano. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. Dual voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, while a song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances.
The Yamaha Arius YDP-143 digital piano provides authentic acoustic piano touch and tone suitable for any aspiring pianist. The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action helps build proper finger technique and strength for an easy transition to playing on acoustic pianos. Improved Pure CF Engine delivers expressive, high resolution recordings of the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. Damper Resonance digitally recreates acoustic piano depth of tone when pedaling, while newly improved reverbs set the stage for you to replicate the feeling of playing in a variety of different environments. With 192-note polyphony, many of the most complex piano compositions can be played without any dropped notes, and the sustained notes ring through faithfully. The Arius YDP-143 is available in either rosewood or black walnut finishes, and the furniture-style cabinet exceeds all expectations of the typical electric piano, lending a classic piano look to any home.
A 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 the hammers inside an acoustic piano. GHS is great for the aspiring pianist, because practicing with the GHS action builds proper finger technique for playing on an acoustic piano. Additionally, the matte finish of the black keys makes them less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of many years of piano-making history and expertise, combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology. Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology, and this is evident when listening to Yamaha digital pianos that utilize the Pure CF Sound Engine. The sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness, making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.
