The re-designed interface lets you browse the 24 instrument Voices with ease with a shortcut to the world-class CFX concert grand piano. New to the Arius line series, you'll experience the sound of the stereophonic optimizer which creates a realistic sense of spaciousness when listening via headphones.

You can enjoy the realism of Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM), and high-quality digital effects through the on-board stereo speaker system. Play along with built-in rhythm patterns and record your performances using the built-in MIDI recorder. And with over a century of acoustic piano manufacturing heritage, it only makes sense that the best digital pianos come from Yamaha.

Piano sound quality only possible from Yamaha
Yamaha’s flagship 9’ concert grand piano, the CFX, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with 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.

Superb playability and feel
Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action with synthetic ebony and ivory keytops reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard in order to provide a grand piano-style response and feel. This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provide a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.

Pedaling provides an added level of realism
Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes, from slight to full, as the sustain pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. Similar to that of an acoustic piano, the result is more realistic sound.

Capture your performance
The MIDI recording function built into the instrument allows players to record performances*. Players can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback. Both hands can be recorded separately and played back together. Additionally, you can create your build your own compositions by overdubbing different voices.

*Recordings are made in Standard MIDI file (SMF) format. Compatible software is required for playback of the recorded data on a computer.

Connect and interact with your instrument
A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the Yamaha UD-BT01 Bluetooth MIDI adapter, or the Lightning-USB Camera adapter. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.

Great little piano


Well built, fantastic sound, good features. We are happy with this piano.



Love this Digital Piano


This is the perfect digital piano for a wide range of skill levels. For the price, the piano feels so high quality. The financing option through Samash was helpful in giving me the perfect hobby for self-isolation!



Love this Yamaha!!


This has been a game changer for us as empty nesters...had a baby grand Kawai ...gave to grandchildren when downsizing but then missed playing holiday music etc.. This has given my husbandv(the organist) and my love of playing Suzuki accompaniments for cello/ violin!! And the grandkids love the tonal changes to choir/ orchestra/ jazz piano! Thank you!!



Awesome sound


Excellent investment



I would buy this piano again, and again.. in fact I did!


Second one I've purchased in a year and a half. I liked the first one so much, getting another one was an easy decision. I have several kids in piano lessons, and the Yamaha was perfect for everything we need. Next year I may purchase a third. The sound is great, and it's a beautiful piano. Very happy with the price, quality, and the service we received. Highly recommended.




I would buy this piano again and again,...in fact I did.


We really love this piano. The sound is tremendous, and the value you get for the price is great! This is the second one I've purchased in a years time. With several kids in piano lessons, I needed a second piano, so another YDP-184R was a no-brainer. My sales specialist, Evan Schlossberg, was great to work with, and he went out of his way to make sure we got what we needed at a great price. Thanks, Evan.



great purchase experience


Sam Ash customer service team did a great job helping me through of the process of deciding which Piano is best suited for me. They were very knowledgeable and very quick to respond to my inquiries. I am new to playing piano but my initial impression is this Piano has a great sound and built very well.



Amazing digital piano


I love this piano.. the sound is amazing. Feels like you're playing an acoustic piano. so many great features.



Great digital piano to have in any home.


I just received the piano this week, shipping took longer than expected...but well worth the wait. Not only is it visually a beautiful instrument it sounds amazing! I have literally played it every day!



Great customer service and easy setup and operation


We are really enjoying playing the Yamaha YDP-184 and happy we got it from Sam Ash. The Sam Ash sales team was helpful in our investigation of different pianos and once we decided to placed an order for the Yamaha, we worked with the delivery company to schedule a delivery before Christmas. When the delivery company called to schedule delivery, it was clear delivery would be a week too late. I contacted the Sam Ash sales team for help thinking they may have ideas. They made calls and determined there was no way the trucking company could schedule an earlier delivery date and so they offer me a piano keyboard that could be wrapped and placed under the tree. What a great idea and generous offer. This is the kind of customer service that earns my business over and over again. As for the YDP-184 piano, the setup instructions were clear and easy to follow as was the electronic user interface. The Yamaha Smart Piano smartphone app makes the user interface even more intuitive. But in all honesty, we're using the most basic of features of the piano thus far and usually turn it on and begin playing.
