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.

A Great Piano for Students or Professionals


The YDP-184 is absolutely the best of the pianos in the Arius line by Yamaha. The keys are responsive, and weighted in a way that makes it feel like you're sitting in front of an acoustic piano. The keys even have a synthetic ebony and ivory feel. It makes it significantly easier to keep your fingers from slipping off of the keys while playing. What truly makes the 184 great is it's ease when it comes to learning. I would absolutely say that a student could, and should, use a piano like this one when learning. For those who are already professionals, it comes with a MIDI recording feature. 16 tracks can be played simultaneously!
