The Yamaha Arius YDP-164 brings together true piano sound and feel, for an outstanding playing experience. Yamaha incorporated their high-tech sampling system into the YDP-164, so you get the rich sound of Yamaha's flagship 9-foot 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 YDP-164'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: If you're looking for an excellent, affordable digital piano, you can't go wrong with the Yamaha Arius YDP-164.
The Arius YDP-164 is a great choice for hobbyists, students, and parents. Its 88-note weighted GH3 action features synthetic ebony and ivory key surfaces for authentic acoustic piano feel. Combine this keyboard action with the sound of the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand and you have an inspiring and highly expressive piano playing experience, no matter what your level as a pianist. And to improve those playing skills, connecting an iOS device running the Smart Pianist app lets you select Voices, record performances, and configure settings with even greater ease. What's more, Yamaha's Smart Pianist app can analyze songs stored in your music library and produce a chord chart, letting you learn as you play along with your favorite tunes.
The Yamaha Arius YDP-164's spacious stereo grand piano sound is the result of Yamaha's century-plus expertise in making acoustic pianos — in concert with their industry leadership in digital sampling technology. It's uncanny the way the YDP-164 naturally responds to your touch — radiating full, lustrous grand piano sound into the room. Perfect for aspiring pianists, the Arius YDP-164 provides realistic acoustic piano sound and touch. The Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) weighted keyboard helps develop finger strength and proper technique for easy transition to acoustic piano. The Arius YDP-164 is not only your trusted musical partner, but is also an elegant addition to your home decor.
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.

This ARIUS digital piano is a finely crafted instrument made possible by the culmination of over a century of advanced Yamaha technologies and expertise.

Newly sampled for the YDP-164, 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.
With an 88-key piano action and synthetic ivory and ebony keys, the Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 features a three-sensor configuration that accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to provide a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control.
The YDP-164 maintains a rich and balanced sound at any volume level you choose to play at. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the balance of bass and treble automatically to allow players to enjoy a full sound even at a lower volume. 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.
