Yamaha YDP-163R Arius Digital Piano - Rosewood

10-voice Digital Piano with Wood Cabinet and Bench

This Yamaha Arius makes a satisfying studio piano for pros and the perfect practice tool for students. Yamaha took special care to make its YDP-163 sound and respond like one of its world-class concert grands. By using multi-velocity samples, an upgraded GH3 keybed with synthetic ivory keytops, and powerful stereo speakers, the Arius provides a convincing approximation of a Yamaha CFIIIS grand along with nine other voices. Onboard productivity tools include a 2-track recorder for you to record your own accompaniment and a USB port to connect to recording and notation software. And thanks to a real wood cabinet and matching bench, the Yamaha Arius YDP-163 is sure to add an elegant look and inviting atmosphere to your home studio or living room.

Traditional upright-piano look makes a striking first impression

Before you even get your hands on the the Yamaha Arius YDP-163, you'll be stunned by its finished walnut 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 walnut bench for a traditional look.

GH3 graded hammer action plays more like an acoustic piano

Sweetwater keyboardists were impressed with the last-generation Ariuses' GH and GHS action. The YDP-163's Graded Hammer Action 3 (GH3) keybed feels even better than before, with keys that swing back faster and better weight to respond to fast arpeggios and dynamic performances. Players who are used to practicing on an acoustic piano will have an easier time transitioning to the 163's action; students will learn better technique to take them to the recital hall and beyond.

Engineered to sound like a 9' CFIIIS concert grand

Arius's Pure CF Sound Engine comes loaded with multiple velocity samples of every key on a world-class Yamaha CFIIIS 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.
