Remarkably realistic sound of a stereo-sampled Yamaha concert grand.

The Yamaha Arius YDP160 is a digital piano with 88 weighted keys. The Arius YDP160 offers Yamaha's trademark playability with ultra-responsive Yamaha Graded Hammer Effect (GHE) action and the remarkably realistic sound of a stereo-sampled Yamaha concert grand. The YDP160 boasts a beautiful dark rosewood cabinet and a premium bench perfectly matches the instrument's rosewood finish. Also included are a wood music rest, sliding key cover, pedal frame with three piano-style pedals and a modesty panel.

The Yamaha YDP160 includes ten different Voices ranging from Grand Piano to Vibraphone and the 20W x 2 built-in amplifier has plenty of power to play loud and clear in even the largest of rooms. Equipped with four types of reverb, the YPD160 is capable of making a small room sound as big as a concert hall. Also included are duet-friendly twin headphone jacks.

Arius models feature an increased number of piano samples per-key over their YDP predecessors along with enhanced cabinetry. The weighted action keys, rich timbre and attractive styling make them excellent choices for hobbyists and aspiring musicians who seek an invitingly playable instrument with a design that complements a classic home decor.

With onboard, single-song recording capabilities, the new Arius pianos capture note-for-note performances as a rehearsal tool or as a quick and easy musical scratch pad. The built-in "50 Greats for the Piano" songs will fill your home with music — whether or not there's someone sitting at the bench. Because the YPD160 includes 64 Voice polyphony and MIDI connectivity, they can also be used for song archiving and score notation when connected to a home computer.

Nice piano replacement

By thatbassguy99

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-160 Digital Piano:

Feels like piano action, sounds better than some inexpensive spinet pianos. Yamaha actually uses the same keyboards in their digital pianos that they do in their real pianos. A great instrument to learn on or practice quietly. Almost as good as a real piano, probably better than a really cheap real piano. If you have a crummy piano at your house that sounds terrible, needs to be rebuilt, won't hold a tuning, etc., this might work as an inexpensive replacement.

Wow what a deal!

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-160 Digital Piano:

I am ungrading from a small electronic keyboard. It is so nice to have the full 88-keys that I enjoyed with a traditional piano, but take up less space from the room. Setup instructions were very easy to follow. This piano is quality all the way down to the headphone hanger that is included. Love the 50 Piano Greats music book. You can play with the demos! Great product and price!

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-160 Digital Piano:

This is my first digital piano, and I must say that it's a huge step up from the dinky little keyboard I was using before. This piano has tons of pro-quality features that make it worth a lot more than what it's priced at. To start off, this instrument has a killer sound. I haven't played around too much with any of the voices besides the normal piano voice, but I can truly say that this thing sounds more like a real piano than any keyboard I've ever heard before. It has a pretty wide range of volume that should suit most situations, but if you don't need too much power I would suggest you buy the YDP-140- it's a little cheaper and has all of the same features, but it doesn't get quite as loud and it's a few pennies cheaper than the YDP-160. Also, this instrument looks very professional. It would be well suited for the home or studio environment and doesn't take up much space nomatter where you put it, so there are a lot of options. The YDP-160 also has key response that is just a small step down from authentic piano hammer action. Most people won't be able to tell the difference between the key response on this and that of a real piano. One last thing: all of the little features on this piano make it well worth your time. from the sliding key cover to the headphone hook underneath to the three realistic pedals on the floor, this instrument can compete with anything else out there, guaranteed! I just can't say enough good about this piano. I encourage anyone who is in the market for a quality keyboard to take a look at the YDP-160 and take it for a spin at your local music store. Trust me, it won't disappoint!
