The Yamaha Arius YDP-165B Digital Piano with Bench is a great choice for the hobbyist, student, or parent of a student. Its 88-note weighted action (GH3) keyboard features synthetic ebony and ivory keytops for an authentic acoustic piano feel.

Connecting an iOS device running the Smart Pianist app lets players select Voices, record performances, and configure settings with even greater ease. Furthermore, the Smart Pianist app can analyze songs stored in your music library and produce a chord chart, allowing you to learn and play along with your favorite songs 

Enjoyment That Stays with You

The luxurious tone and expressive ease of playing stay true to the basics of a real piano. It almost plays itself, releasing the sound and music you have within. Start your day with music and a huge smile on your face. The Yamaha Arius Digital Piano makes you want to play more and more.

Sampled from the Acclaimed Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano

The YDP-165B features a piano Voice sampled from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano, a renowned piano that delivers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a superbly expressive sound. The YDP-165B has the same detailed sound, from the lower keys to the higher keys, full of clarity and rich in colorful harmonic content. It gives you extraordinary expressive power and nuance, that authentically responds in your daily practice as well as your most emotion-filled performances.

Acoustic Piano Playability

With an 88-key piano action, the GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from a naturally heavy feel in the lower key to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GHS keyboard provides a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control. Moreover, there’s a half-damper feature that authentically replicates the damper action on a grand piano, providing rich expressive variation.

Harmonic Resonance

One of the allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. The YDP-165B elaborately reproduces this rich sympathetic resonance through a groundbreaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modeling Lite (VRM Lite). VRM Lite creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings, corresponding to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedaling.

Rich, Powerful Sound

The YDP-165B uses a newly developed tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet that emanates sound from inside the piano. This allows you to experience the natural sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance like that of an acoustic piano.

Rich Variety

Naturally, the YDP-165B has an authentic grand piano sound, but it also features various other built-in instrument sounds, for a total of 10 voices including electric piano, organ, vibraphone, and strings. The YDP-165B also has 353 built-in songs, including 50 famous classical songs, and 303 comprehensive practice exercises from famous methods, such as Beyer, Burgmuller, Czerny, and Hanon. The instrument is also compatible with Yamaha's free Smart Pianist app.

Greater Listening Comfort with Headphones

The YDP-165B employs new technology that corrects the sound balance optimally according to the volume you set, giving you an exceptionally natural sound that’s easy to listen to and is gentle on the ears, even when playing for a long time.

Stylish Design

While based primarily on straight lines, it has a stylish design that incorporates elegant curves that are typical of a grand piano.
