Step up to bigger piano cabinetry and a fuller sound with the Arius YDP-162 digital piano.

As a pianist's skill level rises, they require a keyboard action built for more serious playing. The Arius YDP-162's Graded Hammer action with Synthetic Ivory keytops give the performer a tactile surface reminiscent of the keys found on the finest pianos throughout history. And with a more powerful 20W stereo amplifier, its PureCF sampling more expressively delivers Yamaha's CFIIIS concert grand piano tone for the more experienced player. If your goal is to become a better pianist, the Arius YDP-162 digital piano is equipped to help make that goal a reality.

Features
 

Authentic tone deserves a classic touch

 

Suitable for advanced players as well as beginners, the new Graded Hammer action with Synthetic Ivory Keytops is weighted to match the resistance of hammers in a grand piano. And now Synthetic Ivory Keytops give that porous, tactile feel you would only expect from an acoustic piano manufacturer like Yamaha. Its surface absorbs finger moisture allowing serious players to comfortably play for longer periods of time.

 


 

 

Piano quality only possible from Yamaha

 

PureCF Sound Engine starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Aspire to new heights

At 33 inches, the YDP162 is taller than previous ARIUS models. Not only does this greater cabinet size give a more substantial upright piano look to the YDP-162, but it also helps deliver deeper piano sound acoustically.

 

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 your Arius 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.

The power to play more

128-note polyphony provides enough horsepower for a 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.

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 beauty of these pieces, recorded by the hands of a master.

 

 

 

 

 

The power to be heard

With over 3-times the power of lesser models, the YDP162's 20 Watt amplifier provides enough sound to fill the largest of rooms in a typical household. The resulting sound is much larger than you'd expect from a digital piano of this size.
