The Yamaha Arius YDP-144 brings together true piano sound and feel for an outstanding playing experience. Yamaha incorporated their high-tech sampling system into the Arius YDP-144, so you get the rich sound of Yamaha’s flagship 9' CFX concert grand. Damper Resonance digitally re-creates the depth of tone of a real acoustic piano while pedaling, while high-quality reverbs replicate the sound of playing in a variety of rich environments. The Arius YDP-144’s classic looks will fit perfectly into your home, church, or school — and students and teachers will appreciate the onboard song recorder. Music Experience’s advice is this: If you’re looking for an excellent, affordable digital piano, you can’t go wrong with the Yamaha Arius YDP-144.

          Yamaha Arius YDP-144 Digital Home Piano at a Glance:

          • Traditional upright-piano look makes a striking first impression
          • GHS graded hammer action plays more like an acoustic piano
          • Engineered to sound like a 9' CFX concert grand

          Traditional upright-piano look makes a striking first impression

          Before you even get your hands on the the Yamaha Arius YDP-144, you'll be stunned by its richly-finished rosewood cabinet and elegant appointments. These give the Arius an inviting acoustic allure that won't look out of place in a living room, teaching studio, recital hall, or house of worship. Includes a matching rosewood bench for a traditional look.

          GHS graded hammer action plays more like an acoustic piano

          Music Experience keyboardists have been impressed with the Arius pianos' Graded Hammer Action (GHS) keybeds. This feature gives the YDP-144 a realistic key response that's heavier in the bass side and lighter on the top end. Matte black keytops absorb sweat and moisture to keep fingers from slipping through extended periods of use. Though not quite as realistic feeling as the higher-end Ariuses, the YDP-144 does a great job for students and weekenders.

          Engineered to sound like a 9' CFX concert grand

          Arius's Pure CF Sound Engine comes loaded with multiple velocity samples of every key on a world-class Yamaha CFX to deliver a convincing grand piano tone in the box. This will inspire you and your students to play expressively and dynamically. Stereo speakers with dual 20W amplifiers provide a good approximation of sitting down at a real piano to practice. And for an even more convincing tone, Arius's Stereophonic Optimizer crafts the sound through headphones for haunting realism.

          What Yamaha Says...

          Immerse yourself in the sounds you create, whether purely for fun or as you strive for perfection. This ARIUS digital piano is a finely crafted instrument made possible by culmination of over a century of advanced Yamaha technologies and expertise. The ARIUS YDP-144 is an affordable digital piano, perfect for students or hobbyists looking for an attractive instrument for their home.

          The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano

          Newly sampled for the YDP-144, the Yamaha flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

          Authentic acoustic piano playability

          With an 88-key piano action, the Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. With matte black keytops, the touch and feel of this keyboard action makes it comfortable to play for hours on end.

          Pedaling provides an added level of realism

          The YDP-144 offers convenient functions for when you cannot always play the piano at high volume. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the sound automatically to allow players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level. Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones. When using this function, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.
