The Yamaha DGX-660 contemporary digital piano gives aspiring pianists a fun way to enhance their learning experience.

Welcome to your personal "Piano Room"! The DGX-660 provides a dedicated virtual space where you can choose from a variety of pianos and acoustic settings, creating your personalized practice or performance environment. Simply select your desired piano, then choose any acoustic space ranging from a plain room, to a club stage, to a concert hall.

You can even adjust the position of the virtual piano lid! Players of all abilities can feel what it's like to play with a band and sound like a pro! And the built-in USB Audio Recorder captures your musical inspirations when you're ready to share your accomplishments.

An authentic piano touch with an 88-note weighted GHS keyboard
The Yamaha Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard features a weighted action with heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique and strength for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano.

Sing along while you play!
Simply connect a microphone to the DGX-660 to sing along either with your playing or with pre-recorded karaoke song files from Yamaha MusicSoft. You can hear what you sound like with everything mixed perfectly together from the built-in speakers. View the lyrics on the included score display. Three convenient presets are provided for different vocal performance situations. You can even create and save your own original microphone settings, including professional reverb and chorus effects.

Go wireless with your iOS device
Optional wireless adapters from Yamaha stream audio and MIDI to and from your iOS device with compatible music apps. The Chord Tracker app takes full advantage of this technology, allowing you to play back songs from your iOS device's song library wirelessly through the DGX-660's speaker system. Chord Tracker analyzes the audio songs stored in your iOS device and then displays the chord symbols for you. It can even create an XF song file that plays back the entire song using the DGX-660's accompaniment Styles.

Easy-to-read score and lyric display
The crystal-clear LCD can be switched to score or lyric display, showing you notation for any MIDI song that the DGX-660 is playing. Read the music for your favorite built-in songs, or follow along with songs downloaded to a USB device from Yamaha MusicSoft. Even see the score for songs you've created yourself on the DGX-660!

Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices
Experience authentic guitars, lush strings, and punchy brass with the highly acclaimed Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices. These Voices on the DGX-660 feature a unique blend of long, stereo and multi-layered samples that capture the essence of each instrument, right down to genuine resonance, expression and vibrato.

Choose Styles the easy way with Style Recommender!
Style Recommender helps you find Styles quickly and easily when you know how the music should feel, but don't know which Style is right for the part. Simply play a few notes in the rhythm of the song you want to perform, and Style Recommender will offer a list of matching Styles to choose from.

Let your mobile music device be heard!
Use the AUX IN to connect your portable music player or even another instrument to the DGX-660, and hear the playback through the built-in speakers. The DGX-660's speaker system is powerful, clear and fine-tuned for playing back music of all types

The Technology is Astounding

By 

from Nashville, TN

Verified Reviewer

When I read that this was sampled from a CFIII with a real keyboard feel, I was skeptical, as I am a pianist with a highly discriminating touch and ear. Well, I was duly impressed. I would compare the touch on this instrument to a Yamaha U1 (same as an upright, believe it or not), and the sound really is world-class. It is near impossible on a digital instrument to emulate the touch of a concert grand...however, they've managed to emulate the touch of a high quality upright piano, which is pretty amazing for a digital instrument. The pedal that it comes with is more of an "on-off", not sensitive, so you need to replace it with a separate pedal unit. The touch and sound of this instrument is BETTER than what Yamaha used to sell for over $5,000 only 5 years ago....this is to tell you how far they've come with their technology. You just can't beat Yamaha technology. Always state-of-the-art...I am seriously impressed. For this price point, you can't beat it. Sounds like an instrument you paid thousands for. Many wonderful, incredible features! I am floored by this purchase, and it's an impressive product from Yamaha. Tough to beat!

    Absolutely LOVE the tones on this keyboard! The on board speakers produce a pure clean tone and get a rich deep end which I love since I tend to stay closer to the bottom end. The sound choices greatly surpass the cheaper boards and the quality is second to none! I prefer a different pedal than the one that comes with it, but other than that it's a great keyboard!

    Acoustic Feel with Digital Features

    • Stunning Sounds

      • Worship Venues

      Ready to step up to an acoustic feel but reluctant to leave the versatility of digital features? This keyboard retains the familiarity of using entry to mid level keyboards in features, but adds the elegance of an acoustic weighted feel. As this keyboard is refresh of the DGX-650, the keybed is improved, with the proper feel of hammer action graded touch sensitivity.

      The built in speakers are also delightful in sound, though equally impressive is the ease of connecting the keyboard to external monitors. With the included stand, this keyboard will equally serve you as a home piece as well a worthy stage performance gear. Get acoustic sounds and feel without the compromise features!

      Great Sound and Feel

      By 

      from Los Angeles CA

      Staff Reviewer

      The DGX 660 has it all at an affordable price. Weighted keys with a great feel to them, tons of terrific sounds, a large easy to read screen and amazing sounding built in speakers. It is easily detached from the stand, making it quick work to pick up and take to your next gig. There are tons of sounds ranging from pianos, electric pianos, strings, horns, guitars and basses among others.

      Versatility at its finest

      By 

      from Torrance, CA

      Staff Reviewer

      I've owned this model for about a year. I upgraded from a P115B, because I wanted a lot more onboard features, and this model delivers in spades. There are many features I've yet to utilize, but I love that I can set it up like a digital piano AND carry it around if I choose to. If you plan on transporting it on a regular basis, make sure you get a nice case for it.

          Yamaha has really stepped up their game with this digital piano. It still has the same quality and great features as the DGX-650 with a few improvements. One of the coolest features on the DGX-660 is the virtual piano room. It gives you the ability to choose between many different piano sounds and simulated rooms, and even lets you set how far open the lid is! You are also able to record to a USB device so you can play back and share your performances, and you can run a microphone through it to perform and simultaneously record with. And on top of all of that, you can even connect your iOS device and stream MIDI or audio through the DGX-660 to play backing tracks or display chord data right on the screen.

          Awesome upgrade from Yamaha

          By 

          from Edison, NJ

          Staff Reviewer

          This past year Yamaha announced the DGX-660, an upgrade from their much loved DGX-650 model. Biggest improvements are the keys now have graded hammer action which will allow the keys to feel more like a grand piano. You also have the ability to plug a microphone into the keyboard and read the lyrics off the main screen. Comes with wooden stand.

            • Teacher

            This keyboard feels and sounds great! Priced for the student looking for a serious 88-key digital piano, while still maintaining the functionality of the Yamaha keyboard line. Compared to the previews models, the 660 now includes a great IOS feature while still holding true to their loved features such as the graded hammer action and educational features.
