If your goal is to become a better pianist, the Arius YDP-162 digital piano is equipped to help make that goal a reality. Get free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price on the Yamaha Arius YDP-162 Digital Piano at Sam Ash Direct.

Perform and record with an instrument designed to provide the classic Ivory-touch feel and tone of a real acoustic piano. The 20W speaker system easily fills large rooms while the Acoustic Optimizer ensures the correct tone at any volume. Combine voices and play along with 50 great piano songs or easily integrate with select iOS App devices for further exploration.

Authentic tone deserves a classic touch
Suitable for advanced players as well as beginners, the new Graded Hammer action with Synthetic Ivory Keytops is weighted to match the resistance of hammers in a grand piano. And now Synthetic Ivory Keytops give that porous, tactile feel you would only expect from an acoustic piano manufacturer like Yamaha. Its surface absorbs finger moisture allowing serious players to comfortably play for longer periods of time.

Piano quality only possible from Yamaha
PureCF Sound Engine starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo, so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords.

Optimal tone at any volume level
The Acoustic Optimizer is a new, unique Yamaha technology. Using a special design and position within the instrument, the Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustical flow, which controls resonances and enriches the overall sound. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies provides an incredibly expressive capability.

Capture your performance
The built-in, 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture a performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for hands-separate practicing at any tempo you're comfortable with. Now you can practice one hand, while your Arius plays the other.

Discover an inspiring combination
Combine two Voices together, like piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience. Nothing livens up piano practice like playing a piece with a different sound, and combining two sounds together takes that creativity a step further.

The power to play more
128-note polyphony provides enough horsepower for a dropout-free performances even while layering two Voices and playing two-handed, sustained chords with heavy pedaling. So as you become a more advanced player, your digital piano can respond to your skill level.

A piano with its own repertoire
50 classic piano songs are provided in the built-in song memory and also as a music book, "50 Greats for the Piano." Learn how to play these pieces at your own pace either one hand at a time or at a reduced tempo. Or just listen to the beauty of these pieces, recorded by the hands of a master.

The power to be heard
With over 3-times the power of lesser models, the YDP162's 20 Watt amplifier provides enough sound to fill the largest of rooms in a typical household. The resulting sound is much larger than you'd expect from a digital piano of this size.

Aspire to new heights
At 33 inches, the YDP162 is taller than previous ARIUS models. Not only does this greater cabinet size give a more substantial upright piano look to the YDP-162, but it also helps deliver deeper piano sound acoustically.

      Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-162PE Digital Piano (Polished Ebony):

      Hands down, one of the best digital pianos ever made. The YDP-162 is an incredible innovation from Yamaha. The weighted action is a lot smoother thanks to the synthetic ivory keys and gives it a very natural feeling, similar to an acoustic grand piano. The digital samples eliminate the need for a piano tuner and have amazing resonance. Perfect for the beginner to learn good technique, and for the professional who wants a great sounding piano for the price.

            This Yamaha Arius Digital Piano really fills a solid void in the industry for a solid, affordable, and well performing digital piano. With great sounds and craftsmanship, the polished ebony really shines through the 20W speaker that can easily fill large rooms.

                  Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP-162PE Digital Piano (Polished Ebony):

                  The Yamaha Arius 162 is a great digital piano that feels and sounds just like an acoustic upright piano, without all of the hassles of acoustics. The keys are designed to replicate the feel of real ivory keys and the response is very realistic as well, making it easy to transition to an acoustic piano for a concert or recital if necessary. And now, you can also connect this piano to an iOS device to use with certain apps available on the app market for recording or rehearsing. And with the 50 pre-recorded classical pieces in the memory and the included book, you can listen to or even play along with some of the most recognizable songs right out of the box! Finally, you can even combine any 2 of the various sounds that are in the piano so you can have piano or strings, or a piano and digital piano, for even more diversity in your music.

                    The YDP-162 offers everything you would want in a classic style electric home piano. For a taller guy like myself, the 162 sits a little higher and is definitely more comfortable to play. With hammer graded action and touch sensitive keys, paired with a set of speakers that will produce all the low end you'll need, the YDP-162 is a great choice for your home.
