The Yamaha YDP-V240 is an ensemble console digital piano featuring 88-note Graded Hammer Standard weighted Action. It has the authentic look, feel and most importantly the sound of an expensive acoustic Grand piano. Its 88-key graded hammer action keyboard delivers all the expressiveness, depth and subtle nuances to satisfy even the most demanding pianist, from developing student to seasoned professional.  

Housed in a sturdy, smart looking dark rosewood cabinet complete with a sliding key cover and built-in sheet music rest, the Yamaha YDP-V240 looks like a rich piece of furniture that will accent any home with a touch of class together with a stellar piano sound. In addition, there are over 490 of Yamaha’s 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling voices and 12 drum kits loaded inside the YDP-V240 taken from Yamaha’s extensive sample and synthesis collection. You can enhance the sound by tapping into any of the 238 onboard DSP effects. Reverb, distortion, chorus and other dynamic processing tools help add some polish to your sounds.

160 surprisingly realistic auto accompaniment presets covering many popular styles and genres make things fun and exciting, providing you with a full backing band experience.  The tracking is very good as the accompaniment responds instantaneously to your playing. Graded Hammer Action means that the YDP-V240’s 88 keys have a heavier touch towards the bottom notes and a lighter touch as you climb up the octaves, just like a real acoustic piano. Tempo, transposition and tuning functions are easily accessible from the top panel.

There are 2 USB ports that will help to expand your connectivity options. USB To Device lets you hook up a USB flash drive or hard drive and USB To Host lets you connect to your computer (PC or MAC) to work with your favorite music software. This will enable you to record and arrange your music utilizing the Yamaha YDP-V240’s multi-timbral sound engine and have many of its instrument voices playing at once.

The built-in Music Database contains titles of famous, traditional and standard song titles. When you call up one of the titles it adjusts all the panel setting of the YDP-V240 to provide the ideal combination of style and voices to fit that song. You can now use these settings for your own songs or jams in that specific genre. Additional titles can be downloaded directly from the Internet via the USB connection.

Another interesting feature of the Yamaha YDP-V240 Arius Digital piano is Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.). When you play along with a song and utilize this feature, regardless of what you play comes out sounding right! In other words, even beginners who don’t yet play piano can sound and appear like they do, even if you hit the wrong notes. Just keep in time with the music and you’ll sound like a world-class professional pianist!

Do you need piano lessons? The built-in Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) is an advanced set of helpful learning tools built into the YDP-V240 Digital Piano helping you teach yourself how to play and perform piano. It provides easy, 3 step lessons:

1. Playback of as song will wait for you until you play the correct key;
2. The song will follow your tempo;
3. The song will then play at the correct tempo minus one, which is the part you’ll be playing.

This makes learning easy and fun as it keeps pace with you until the point that you’ll need to keep pace with it.

All functions and selections are spelled out on the top panel’s 4.6” LCD display, easy to read even in low-light settings. You can also view the musical notation and lyrics of songs you play all on the same screen.

Audio connections include L/R stereo ¼” outputs. 2 built-in speakers are powered by a pair of 20- watt amps providing rich, full sound quality. There’s a built-in headphone jack for private listening. Feeling creative? The Yamaha YDP-V240 has an onboard 6-track recorder. There’s a 30,000-note capacity and you can store up to 5 of your compositions.

With it’s handsome rosewood cabinet, 88-weighted keys, 64-note polyphony, built-in accompaniment, onboard effects, built-in lessons, incredible sound quality and famous Yamaha pedigree, the YDP-V240 Digital Piano will bring joy and wonderful musicality into your home and life. Pull up a bench and get busy!

Comes with a Yamaha BC-100 Standard Bench.

      Comments about Yamaha YDP-V240 Arius 88 Key Digital Piano:

      This Yamaha Digital Piano is great for the price and combines the ease of a keyboard with the quality of a digital piano. It's versatile with various sound effects, voice options, accompaniments, and setup options available. This Yamaha is great for piano students all the way up to professional musicians. This digital piano looks great but more importantly it sounds great with good key action on all 88 keys. This digital piano comes with a solid stand built for durability and includes a piano bench. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a solid digital piano with extra features.

        It's 2014 and it might be about time you replace your upright piano! With this Yamaha you never have to worry about tuning or intonation issues again. And to top it all off, it looks GORGEOUS. A great choice if you're trying to learn but don't want an eyesore in the living room! And of course it plays and sounds beautifully! Yamaha knows what they're doing when it comes to digital pianos!

            Teaching is my business, and in every one of my lesson rooms, you'll find this model. It feels great, just like an acoustic instrument. It looks a lot nicer than having a keyboard on an X stand, and they sound great. They really fill up the room with sound.

              Comments about Yamaha YDP-V240 Arius 88 Key Digital Piano:

              Incredible digital piano. Sounds and plays and even looks like the real thing! The difference, a real piano needs to be tuned, can't be moved easily, and only sounds like one instrument. The YDP-V240 holds over 490 voices, 12 drum kits and has 238 DSP effects. Not one but two USB ports that will allow you to connect to PC or Mac to the software of your choice and will give you the ability to have multiple instrument voices playing at the same time. Looks great and sounds great! "This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Ontario".

                This piano is elegant and professional in both sound and looks. The sound is amazingly accurate and is supported by touch sensitive keys that get louder or softer depending on how you touch them. The wood body looks classy in the home or studio, and the sound is clean and precise.

                    The Yamaha YDP-V240 Arius 88 Key Digital Piano is awesome! I have used these in pit orchestras all the time. The feel is great and playing it is effortless. It has a great piano sound and a few other great sounds, like the strings, for when you need to add more to the orchestra. The transposition feature is very easy to use when you have a diva who needs a different key than the original.

The electronic piano sounds are amazing and I also like the act that you can record yourself. If you are a student get this piano, you wont get board practicing because of the many sounds it offers.it is quite heavy but not as heavy as a acoustic piano if you had it in your living room you could move it yourself.
