 Product Description

From makers of the world's finest acoustic pianos, come the world's best digital pianos.

Realize your full piano potential with a Yamaha ARIUS digital piano.

The Yamaha Arius YDP-143 digital piano provides authentic acoustic piano touch and tone suitable for any aspiring pianist. The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action helps build proper finger technique and strength for an easy transition to playing on acoustic pianos. Improved Pure CF Engine delivers expressive, high resolution recordings of the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. Damper Resonance digitally recreates acoustic piano depth of tone when pedaling, while newly improved reverbs set the stage for you to replicate the feeling of playing in a variety of different environments. With 192-note polyphony, many of the most complex piano compositions can be played without any dropped notes, and the sustained notes ring through faithfully. The Arius YDP-143 is available in either rosewood or black walnut finishes, and the furniture-style cabinet exceeds all expectations of the typical electric piano, lending a classic piano look to any home.

Features

Piano sound quality only possible from Yamaha

The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of many years of piano-making history and expertise, combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology. Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology, and this is evident when listening to Yamaha digital pianos that utilize the Pure CF Sound Engine. The sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness, making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.

Superb playability and feel

The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, replicating the feel of the hammers inside an acoustic piano. GHS is great for the aspiring pianist, because it can help you build proper finger technique. When it comes time to play the real thing, your hands will be ready! Additionally, the matte finish of the black keys can absorb moisture from your hands, making them less slippery even after hours of practice.

Pedaling provides an added level of realism

Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes, from slight to full, as the sustain pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. Subtle changes occur when the player begins to press the pedal while striking a key.

A piano with its own classic repertoire

The Yamaha digital piano is pre-loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for your listening and learning pleasure. Players can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces. They can also simply listen to the songs and enjoy these recognizable piano favorites. This feature is sure to add hours of enjoyment to this terrific instrument.

Capture your performance

The recording function built into the instrument allows players to record performances* with a single touch. Additionally, players can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, meaning that both hands can be recorded separately.

* Recordings are made in Standard MIDI file (SMF) format. Compatible software is required for playback of the recorded data on a computer.

Access your favorite features quickly and easily

The "Digital Piano Controller" app has an attractive interface optimized for iOS touch screens, adding a whole new level of functionality to your Yamaha instrument. Turn your iOS device into an intuitive instrument controller, allowing you to access features and settings even more quickly than using the panel of your instrument. Adjust settings, choose Voices, and even record performances. Once you try it, you'll never want to live without it!

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 creating unique combinations of two sounds together. Experiment with these combinations to discover new inspiration.

Optimal tone at any volume level

With the Yamaha exclusive Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, people can enjoy playing their digital pianos at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the addition of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a truer sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. This ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on the digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.

Full tone built right into the cabinetry

Yamaha developed this new technology with an in-depth knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments. Acoustic Optimizer delivers naturally smooth tonal richness across the entire keyboard by regulating the flow of sound and control of tone from the cabinet of the instrument.

A new kind of headphone experience

The Stereophonic Optimizer is unique to Yamaha. When playing and listening to the instrument using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano, resulting in a spacious, surround sound quality that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Within this private listening environment, the sound of the piano can be perceived to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural experience.

Connect and interact with your instrument

A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the Yamaha UD-BT01, or the Lightning-USB Camera Adaptor. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.

Conserve energy with convenient auto power off feature

 

Auto power off shuts down the instrument after a period of inactivity. You can customize how long it will wait before shutting down, or disable it if you prefer. To learn more about other ways that Yamaha conserves energy.
