OVERVIEW

Classic piano touch. Contemporary music experience.

Yamaha is one of the leaders in digital piano production, and they continue that tradition with the DGX-650. A true ensemble digital piano, the DGX-650 has a variety of interactive features that make learning, playing, and sharing music fun for everyone regardless of skill level. With a full-size 88-note Graded Hammer Standard action keyboard, the DGX-650 not only gives you the authentic feel of playing a piano, it also incorporates Damper Resonance DSP and PureCF sampling that gives this digital version true and accurate sound reproduction of its acoustic counterpart. Add-in a USB audio recorder to instantly capture and share your musical achievements, and the DGX-650 is even better than the real thing.

PureCF-sampled piano
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.

Damper Resonance DSP
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.

88-note, weighted GHS action
A weighted action with heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, 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.

XG-optimized for You Are The Artist song books
Professionally-arranged, play-along XG song files from Yamaha MusicSoft are matched with best-selling song books from Hal Leonard. Learn to play songs made famous by artists like Elton John, Coldplay, Adele and more with the DGX-650 as your backing band.

USB Audio (WAV) Recording/Playback
Record performances or MIDI songs as uncompressed, CD-quality audio to a USB flash drive using the USB Audio Recorder. From there, copy to your computer to make CDs, share over the internet or transfer to your portable music player. You can also playback uncompressed WAV files stored on a USB flash drive.

Smart Chord
Smart Chord makes you sound like a pro, even if you're just learning how to play. With a single finger on your left hand, Smart Chord will create entire chords from simple Pop triads to complex jazz 7th and 9th chords. Accompaniment Styles create the rest of your virtual band so you can get straight to playing music.

Style Recommender
Style Recommender suggests a list of suitable Styles based on your playing. Play in a piano part, drum part or just tap a simple rhythm and Style Recommender will create a list of appropriate Styles based on what you played.

AUX line input
Connect any device with an audio output and hear it through the DGX-650's built-in speakers. Listen to music from your mobile device, hook up another keyboard or even a mixer and jam with friends. The DGX-650 makes a great speaker system for virtually any sound source.

128-note polyphony
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.

Made the decision after testing driving this in a local music store and reading great reviews.
Great piano feel and sounds. The display is kind of small to easily see the (score) music as it plays (you can view about four measure at a time), but the fact you can slow/pause it really helps. Having to scroll through/between menu's can be a bit cumbersome at times, but overall not bad. Great built-in speakers, very decent bass.
LOVE the ability to quickly and easily change tempo, rewind, and A-B loop parts of songs. Great way to help when learning new material. Excellent selection of built-in midi songs to play along with. You can mute any of six tracks. Nice to play additional midi files right from the usb drive.
Split and layering fairly easy. Good selection of various styles (rhythms & accompaniments). Shouldn't get bored soon. Didn't care at all for their "style recommender" function because it doesn't seems to be consistent or accurate.
Bottom line for me is I'm having so much fun learning new material, stuff that I've never played before. And it just sounds sssooo good when you play along with the songs.
There is much to offer here, whether you're just beginning or been playing out.

The DGX-650 88 key is an excellent product

It's an excellent tool for teaching, but the pedal is not what we see in the advertisement.

      Comments about Yamaha DGX-650 88-Key Graded Hammer Action Digital Piano:

      This digital piano shines! It was easily assembled and all parts fit well. The operation was flawless. Everything worked as it should out of the box. It is a very impressive instrument. It will take a while to get used to, but the results are very rewarding! You may spend more, but you will never get a better instrument than this.

      This is a great unit for not a lot of money. Very easy to take off the wood stand and take to a gig. The only draw back is it is very heavy.

          I couldn't pick up chicks playing the bagpipes, but since I bought the Yamaha DGX-650, I have so many chicks, that I might need to buy a farm! Seriously, this is an excellent investment and instrument...The piano sound is excellent and the options of recording are also excellent...Very very nice!

          Yamaha does it again. This instrument is pure gold. It is all that a person needs. I owned another Yamaha Digital Piano years back and that instrument was a pure delight to play. That is why I looked to Yamaha, again, when looking for a digital piano. Pure quality; pure sound; pure genius You won't be dissatisfied in owning this piano..

          Comments about Yamaha DGX-650 88-Key Graded Hammer Action Digital Piano:

          Full size keyboard under 1000 d o l l a r s with the most realistic piano sound (on Live Grand setting) I've heard. Much better than competing Casio and Yamaha models. Internal speakers have woofer and tweeter - gives very similar sound to that heard in headphones. Has way more voices than we'll ever use (bought as a piano). Looking forward to connecting to USB to see what can be done with it. Haven't done any recording yet.

          Relatively large depth - needed to house the speakers - makes it a tough one to find any sort of a case for. Pedal included is HORRIBLE. Get the Yamaha FC4 at least.

            Comments about Yamaha DGX-650 88-Key Graded Hammer Action Digital Piano:

            There are lots of great keyboards out there, but I think Yamaha has pretty much mastered the art of creating digital keyboards. For the money you are NOT going to find a better keyboard. I needed a keyboard with excellent piano and organ sounds, and this thing has a plethora of beautiful and realistic sounds. And the weighted keys are about the best you're going to find on a digital piano. The only bad thing I can say about this is the color choice for the black version - they should've made it solid black, like how the white one is one solid color with no fake wood grain. That dark wood with the black just looks terrible to me…so I had to buy the white one. That's not necessarily a big deal, the white one looks classy, but I think it was a poor design choice for the black keyboard. If it was solid black I would've gone for it. But, like I said…sound and feel wise: it's going to be very hard to find a better keyboard without jumping up to much higher prices.

              Excellent instrument. The piano came very well packaged. I received it in three days. The 3 pedal attachment was delivered seperately. Assembly was simple although the keyboard is heavy and requires two to mount the keyboard on the stand.
              The sound is incredible. Very nice, real feel, piano.
