The Yamaha Arius YDP-143 combines an authentic acoustic piano touch and tone with a compact and stylish cabinet, ideal for all aspiring pianists. The YDP-143 features Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action, which is well suited to the beginner pianist and delivers the graded, weighted touch that piano teachers recommend for building proper technique.
The improved Pure CF sound engine is the result of state-of-the-art sampling technology, delivering an expressive, high resolution recreation of the Yamaha CFIIIS 9ft concert grand piano. Damper resonance technology digitally recreates depth of tone when pedalling, and improved reverb spatial effects bring to life the feeling of playing in a variety of different environments. Another great function is duo mode: a feature which splits the keyboard into two independent pianos, each with their own middle C; perfect for teachers and duets.
The YDP-143 can also be connected to iOS devices with Yamaha’s free Digital Piano Controller app. This allows players to turn their iOS device into an intuitive controller allowing them to adjust settings, select sounds and even record performances.
