A grand experience from a compact home piano

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.

Key Features:

  • The YDP-165 has all of the conveniences of an electric piano without sacrificing the performance of an acoustic piano.
  • The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano: Newly sampled for the YDP-165, 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 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.
  • Designed for your personal enjoyment: The YDP-165 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.
  • Enjoy the piano more with Smart Pianist, a dedicated app that adds a beautiful graphic interface and a variety of incredible features to your compatible Yamaha digital piano.
  • Designed to elegantly fit into your home decor, the YDP-165 represents the traditional design of the acoustic piano while delivering the technology and convenience of a state-of-the-art digital piano. Choose from two finish options to best match your music-making space:  Dark Rosewood or Black Walnut (you can specify your color choice in the notes at checkout).
