The Yamaha YDP-S51 digital piano is stylish, with a footprint that fits into less space than most pianos, simple-to-use with performance bigger than it's size, with Graded Hammer action, Pure CF sampling & a triple pedal for a true piano experience.

The Yamaha ARIUS YDP-S51 has been designed after an upright piano. Music rest and pedals have been carefully placed for the optimal playing position while the key cover features the gentle, soft-close action found on many traditional pianos.  The piano sound comes from Yamaha's “Pure CF Sound Engine”, the same technology which has earned high praise in the renowned Clavinova series, giving you a playing response and expressive capability beyond what you normally expect from a digital piano.

Yamaha's exclusive “Acoustic Optimizer” is a new technology was created to control and enrich resonance by design and positioning within the instrument, thereby physically adjusting the flow of sound waves. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies gives YDP-S51 an incredible expressive capability. YDP-S51 is also the first slim-line ARIUS piano to feature a Graded Hammer (GH) Keyboard.

The keyboard offers a natural feel with expressive playability, providing subtle weight variations on the low end, which is heavier to the touch, though the action becomes lightens up as you move into the higher notes. YDP-S51 features three sturdy metal pedals.

Half-pedalling capability, together with the Damper Resonance function give fine control to the player and replicate the delicate nuances of an acoustic piano. Intelligent Acoustic Control automatically adjusts the sound so that you can still experience a balanced, rich tone even at low volumes, for pianists who want to practice quietly.

  • Graded Hammer keyboard action keyboard
  • Genuine piano feel lightens up as you move into higher notes
  • 10 Voices including 3 piano Voices, 128-note polyphony
  • USB TO HOST port  connects ARIUS and a computer.
  • Metronome function for effective practice and recording.
  • Built-in memory enables you to record your performance.
  • Duo Mode splits the keyboard into two with the same register

      Comments about Yamaha YDP-S51 ARIUS 88-Key Console Digital Piano - Black Walnut:

      These are the pianos we use in our lesson rooms here at Sam Ash. They're virtually indistinguishable from playing an acoustic piano, and they look great. I would recommend this to anyone who wants something close to a real piano in their home. They're great for churches, school music programs, etc.

          If you are familiar with the legendary quality of Yamaha's Clavinova series, or Yamaha digital pianos in general, you will not be surprised by the amazing sound and feel of this piano. Its wood sides, stand, and finish are striking. The sound is inspiring and that's the key to any instrument.

                I wanted the look of an upright piano, but not as bulky because I don't have much space in my condo.
                This Arius was the perfect size.
                I love the sound of the piano and I can use headphones so I don't disturb my neighbors.
                It is truly a fine instrument, I am completely satisfied.

                  Looks and feels like a real piano. Yamaha really delivers on these Arias digi pianos. For anyone who doesn't want to shell out $5k-$10k for a piano that needs tuning, this is for you! Great hammer on action that has the feel and sound that a real piano would.
                  Highly recommended from a Staff Writer @ Sam Ash

                  This keyboard suits my needs in my small apartment. I am just taking lessons and it doesn't take up a lot of space and has a great sound. It also has the feel of a real piano because of it's graded hammer action. By me being in an apartment it has headphone jacks so I don't have to

                          More minimal than any other Arius I have ever seen
                          Great piano sound and great for practice as well.
