Immerse yourself in the sounds you create, whether purely for fun or as you strive for perfection. This Arius digital piano is a finely crafted instrument made possible by the culmination of over a century of advanced Yamaha technologies and expertise. Perfect for hobbyists and students alike, the Arius YDP-164 is not only your trusted musical partner, but is also an elegant addition to your home decor.

Powerful Tone of the Acclaimed CFX Concert Grand Piano
Sampled for the YDP-164, the Yamaha flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

Authentic Acoustic Piano Playability
With an 88-key piano action and synthetic ivory and ebony keys, the Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 features a three-sensor configuration that accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to provide a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control.

Designed for Your Personal Enjoyment
The YDP-164 maintains a rich and balanced sound at any volume level you choose to play at. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the balance of bass and treble automatically to allow players to enjoy a full sound even at a lower volume. Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones. When using this function, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.

Buy the Yamaha YDP 164


We've owned 2 acoustic pianos and this is our first digital piano. We got the rosewood one and what a beautiful finish. But the sound, so rich and full of the Yamaha Grand. We bought during the Covid-19 shut in so we weren't able to listen to in person. I looked at the Kawai KDP 110, Roland 501, Yamaha 144 and 164 and Casio. Ruled out Casio and Roland due to Roland reviews showing various problems, same with Casio. I liked the mellower sound of the Kawai, 5 more voices, and bluetooth. However, there were too many reviews with noisy key action after 6 months to 1 year. Also closest authorized dealer to service is 2 hours away. I chose the Yamaha 164 due to the upgraded amplifier and speakers with 40 watts. I figured the sound would be better even at low volumes, and it's excellent! I don't care about having 10 voices as our purpose is to play piano and improve our piano skills, so though we've tried out the other voices, we keep it on the concert grand. I'm an android person so I was happy to see the Yamaha smart pianist app is on android too, unlike the Kawai. It's easy to maneuver and select voices, etc. I was disappointed that the music conversion feature so hyped in the utube videos only converts to chords, i.e. a minor, b flat, etc, not musical notation. Also the memory is a little lacking. Neither of these would change my mind. This is a beautiful instrument, great action, wonderful tone, love the key cover, pedals are good, though they seems to scratch easy. Oh, and the headphone jacks are a god send, now I can practice at night without disturbing my wife. First time I used them, even with cheap headphones, I had to take them off because I thought they weren't working the sound was so natural and clear. The page stays on the music stand are a nice touch also. The rep at Sam Ash was super helpful and gave me a great deal. The piano was shipped over 1100 miles in 4 business days. It was packaged very well and took about an hour to assemble and was very simple.





Perfect for any teacher OR student. Action on the keys is perfect. I've used my 164 for everything from recitals, to recording, to performances. For a great sounding instrument it isnt overly difficult to take it apart & put back together again. Plus quick delivery.

Piano is exactly as described by Yamaha, key feel and weight is like my C3 grand. The sound quality thru headphones is very similar to a grand. Delivery was quick and assembly was much easier than I expected. Note: given the weight and size of the keyboard section two people are needed to mount it on the stand. Very pleased with purchase.



Would buy again tomorrow


Amazing piano and we got it for an even more amazing price at Sam Ash. It sounds like an instrument worth many times more than it does, looks extremely classy and is full of useful touches. Highly recommend buy.
