OVERVIEW

Digital piano with GHS keyboard with matte black keytops.

The Arius YDP-142 digital piano provides authentic piano touch and tone suitable for any aspiring pianist. The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action builds proper fingering technique for an easy transition to playing on acoustic pianos. PureCF sampling delivers expressive recordings of Yamaha's CFIIIS 9-foot concert grand piano. Damper Resonance digitally recreates acoustic piano depth when pedaling, while Yamaha's exclusive Intelligent Acoustic Control ensures a full, balanced tone at any volume. The Arius YDP-142's 42" cabinet lends a classic piano look to any home interior.

PureCF sampling starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo, so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords.

Authentic to the touch
A weighted action with heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end is just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. To make the YDP-142 be your favorite, you can select touch sensitivity from 3 types - hard, medium, or soft - depending on your finger strength or playing style. You can play with your favorite keyboard setting which matches to you.

Smooth, continuous pedaling
Continuous or half-damper pedal control provides detailed nuance and subtlety experienced when pedaling on a grand piano. This is done by allowing continuously increasing amounts of note sustain, from slight to full, as you depress the sustain pedal deeper.

True sound that resonates
Damper Resonance digitally reproduces the sympathetic interaction between strings on acoustic pianos. When the damper pedal is used in a performance, the harmonics of other strings wash over the notes you play until the pedal is released.

Optimal tone at any volume level
The Acoustic Optimizer is a new, unique Yamaha technology. Using a special design and position within the instrument, the Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustical flow, which controls resonances and enriches the overall sound. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies provides an incredibly expressive capability.

Capture your performance
The built-in, 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture a performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for hands-separate practicing at any tempo you're comfortable with. Now you can practice one hand, while song recorder plays the other.

Discover an inspiring combination
Combine two Voices together, like piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience. Nothing livens up piano practice like playing a piece with a different sound, and combining two sounds together takes that creativity a step further.

Ready to play, side-by-side
Up to two people can enjoy playing the piano together in total privacy. Practice as much as you need before unplugging the headphones to let others hear your progress.

A piano with its own repertoire
50 classic piano songs are provided in the built-in song memory and also as a music book, "50 Greats for the Piano." Learn how to play these pieces at your own pace either one hand at a time or at a reduced tempo. Or just listen to the songs as background music.

The power to play more
Provides enough horsepower for dropout-free performances even while layering two Voices and playing two-handed, sustained chords with heavy pedaling. So as you become a more advanced player, your digital piano can respond to your skill level.

Elegant, Beautiful Digital Piano

This is an excellent digital piano. I recently purchased this piano "Restocked" and it arrived in near perfect condition (one minor ding on the front of the keyboard cover).

This piano feels VERY close to a real piano, and it has the added benifit of being able to plug headphones in if you are living in an apartment or similar multi-family housing. There are three grand piano patches, all of which are realistic (I believe they are all sampled from real pianos).

Lastly, it is beautiful. The finish is great, and the piano looks substantial, which is important if you are going to have it set up essentially permanantly in your apartment.

        Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-142 88-Key Digital Piano with Bench:

        This keyboard is very realistic and sounds like a real piano. We use it in our worship services. We are a small church with small funds, but it was affordable and classy. Geared much more for a beginning to intermediate level of play, but will work for many years to come.

                The sound is amazing. It is compact and doesn't take up much room. It looks nice and the action feels like a conventional piano. The bench that comes with it has no storage, but is comfortable.

                  My daughter started on this because we didnt want to spend big money on a real piano. She used it for a few years and once we were convinced she was sticking with it we bought an upright. Yamaha has high quality and you cant go wrong with this digital piano. Great for apertments too!

                  For the price, I believe it's the best you can get. But there aren't enough preloaded songs and voices and there's a significant delay time when turning it on and being able to play it.
