The Arius YDP-165 is a great choice for the hobbyist, student, or parent of a student. Its 88-note weighted action (GH3) with the improved CFX concert grand sound engine provides an expressive piano experience. Connecting an iOS device running the Smart Pianist app lets players select Voices, record performances, and configure settings with even greater ease.
- Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) with synthetic ivory key tops add a tactile surface to the white keys, which absorbs finger moisture and prevents slipping.
- CFX Stereo Sampling faithfully reproduces the sound of Yamaha’s flagship CFX Full Concert Grand.
- Tone Escapement uses a long and narrow hole in the back of the piano to create a wide sound space.
- 3 Piano-Style Pedals offer authentic sustain, sostenuto, and soft pedal performance.
- VRM (Virtual Resonance Modeling) Lite technology makes the sound more like that of a real acoustic piano by reproducing its sophisticated string resonance.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The USB TO HOST port allows players to connect to and interact with a wide variety of educational, creative and entertaining musical applications on a computer or mobile device.
- Duo mode splits the keyboard into two halves, each with their own “middle C” for practicing with a partner
- Volume Limiter lowers the overall volume of the instrument so that you can protect your hearing with or without headphones.
