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:

      This digital piano is incredible. Not only does it feel like an upright piano in the keys but now with the new Acoustic Optimizer option it actually sounds like an upright too. Yeah this piano has all the features that made Yamaha famous and really stand out against the crowd, but its the Acoustic Optimizer that is the shining beacon for this piece.

        Great piano with very responsive feel. It's like having the tones and play ability of a baby grand in a compact size. The Acoustic Optimizer feature built into this piano is really what sets it apart. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

              Want a compact upright piano, but don't want to worry about tuning? This is perfect!!

              Yamaha is the king of grand piano sampling and their keyboards never disappoint. This piano looks, plays and sounds amazing. Yamaha's graded hammer keys give you an authentic acoustic piano feel and the key volume responds accurately to force as well. The harder you play, the louder it gets!! If you want a quality digital piano for the home or studio and want authentic feel and sounds, look no further!

                        This digital piano is a great alternative to an upright piano. The piano sound is very natural sounding for a digital piano and the weighted keys make it feel like a regular piano. For aesthetics, Yamaha made this keyboard look like an upright right down to the pedals. A benefit over a standard acoustic piano is that this keyboard can be played silently with headphones. The addition of a built in metronome as well as recording make it great for practice. This is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a natural feeling and sounding piano that doesn't need tuning.
