OVERVIEW

As much a breakthrough as it is a refinement.

The best digital piano is one that can grow with a musician as he or she progresses. When a pianist's skill level rises, a keyboard action built for more serious playing is needed. The Arius YDP-163 features Graded Hammer 3 keyboard action with three sensors and synthetic ivory keytops provide a tactile surface with a response reminiscent of the finest pianos.

The Pure CF Engine on the YDP-163 delivers the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano tone through its powerful 20W stereo amplifier. With 192- note polyphony, complex piano compositions can be played without dropped notes, and the sustained notes ring through faithfully. The YDP-163 has all of the convenience of an electric piano without sacrificing the performance of an acoustic piano.

The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of many years of piano-making expertise combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology. Yamaha is an industry leader in digital piano technology, and this is evident when listening to Yamaha digital pianos that use 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.

Superb playability and feel

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to provide a grand piano-style response and feel. This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provide a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.

A piano with its own classic repertoire

The Yamaha digital piano is loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for your listening and learning pleasure. Players can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces. They can also simply listen to the songs and enjoy these recognizable piano favorites. This feature is sure to add hours of enjoyment to this terrific instrument.

Optimal tone at any volume level

With the Yamaha exclusive Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, people can enjoy playing their digital pianos at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the addition of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a truer sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. This ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on the digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.

Connect and interact with your instrument

A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the Yamaha UD-BT01, or the Lightning-USB Camera Adaptor. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.

    Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-163 88-Key Digital Console Piano with Bench:

    I have bought this as a gift to my wife, who has been a a professional piano teacher for twenty five years and she loves it! We live in an apartment and the space is limited, so we could not have a real piano at this point of our life. After trying the YDP 163 at a friend's house my wife was completely sold and overwhelmed from the realistic feel of this digital piano. Bravo to Yamaha for another superb product!

        Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-163 88-Key Digital Console Piano with Bench:

        I bought this piano for my daughter after reading several reviews about pianos in the 1K range. Musiciansfriend.com had the one I bought on special because it was an open box. After contemplating whether I should buy it or not, I'm very glad I did. The piano is in great condition and has a few very superficial scratches. There is one key that is slightly damaged but it's one that is not frequently used. This piano is a huge upgrade from the last one we hadn't in terms of sound and feel. I would recommend this piano!
