The Yamaha Arius YDP-144 is a great digital piano for any aspiring pianist. The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action combines with Yamaha CFX piano sampling and Damper Resonance to recreate the touch, tone and expression of an acoustic piano. The optional iOS app, Smart Pianist, makes navigation and configuration easier than ever. For over a century, Yamaha has crafted pianos fit for the world’s most prestigious concert halls. Now ARIUS recreates the touch of a Yamaha acoustic piano and our flagship CFX concert grand sound to fit your home and your life. All with the sleek design, intuitive features and advanced technology you’ve come to expect from a Yamaha.
- The CFX Premium Grand Piano Voice recreates the power and tone of the flagship CFX concert grand piano from Yamaha.
- GHS weighted action is heavier in the low keys and lighter in the high keys, just like an acoustic piano. The special matte black key tops are designed to absorb moisture and remain tactile after extended use without becoming slippery.
- Half-damper pedal control allows for continuously increasing amounts of sustain as the pedal is depressed.
- The Smart Pianist app not only gives you full control over your piano’s major functions, but also analyzes your favorite songs right out of your music library using chord tracker technology.
- Damper Resonance DSP recreates the sound of the inside of a grand piano when the dampers are off the strings.
- 50 classic piano songs are provided in the built-in song memory as well as in a music book, “50 Greats for the Piano.” These can be used to supplement practice, or simply for the player’s listening pleasure.
- The 2-track song recorder allows players to practice one hand at a time, or record their next hit single!
- Dual Mode lets you combine two Voices together, like piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience.
- Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) automatically adjusts the EQ of the built-in stereo speaker system to the player’s setting, ensuring the richest tone at any volume level.
- Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustic flow by using a special design and position within the instrument to control resonance and enrich the overall sound.
- Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spatial distribution of sound in the listener’s headphones, creating the sensation that sound is coming directly from the piano, rather than from the headphones.
- USB to HOST connectivity with MIDI and audio transfer means you only need one cable to connect to your music-making software.
- 192 note polyphony allows you to play complex passages on your keyboard without any dropped notes.
- The Digital Piano 3-year, carry-in warranty protects you from defects or malfunctions not resulting from misuse. Simply return the product to your dealer, who will manage getting it repaired or replaced for you.
