Beautiful, Powerful Sound Sampled from the Acclaimed Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano

Using a voice sampled from Yamaha's crown jewel CFX concert grand piano - a renowned piano with an exceptionally expressive tone, delivering brilliant highs and powerful lows - the YDP-165 boasts the same articulate tone, from the lower register to the highest keys. With plenty of clarity and lush harmonic complexities, this digital piano delivers outstanding expression and nuance, that reacts faithfully in your daily rehearsal, as well as your most emotive stage performances.

Authentic Acoustic Piano Playability and Half-Damper Pedal Control

The YDP-165's 88-key Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard replicates the feel and response of an acoustic piano, from the naturally heavy touch in the lower register, to the lighter feel in the higher octaves. This allows for quick repeating notes and authentic expressive control. The included half-damper feature accurately recreates the damper action of a grand piano, delivering rich expressive variation.

Harmonic Resonance Like That of a Grand Piano - Virtual Resonance Modeling Lite (VRM Lite)

One of the endearing characteristics of the grand piano is the sympathetic vibrations caused by the entire instrument resonating. Through a cutting-edge technology called Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM), the YDP-165 replicates this colorful sympathetic vibration. Creating a complex and varied sound by emulating the intricate sympathetic tones that naturally occur when the resonance of the strings transfer into the soundboard and adjacent strings, proportional to the timing and intensity of the key playing and pedaling.

Rich, Powerful Sound Provided by the Tone Escapement Construction

Employing a freshly developed tone escapement design on the rear of the cabinet that emanates sound from inside the piano, the YDP-165 provides the experience of natural sound radiation and 3D resonance found in acoustic pianos.

Rich Variety of Built-In Songs, and Intuitive Operation with Smart Pianist App

The Yamaha YDP-165 naturally boasts an authentic grand piano sound, but also features a range of other integrated instrument sounds for a total of 10 Voices. This includes electric piano, organ, vibraphone, and strings.

This digital piano also has 353 in-built songs, including 50 iconic classical songs, 303 comprehensive rehearsal exercises from famous methods, like Beyer, Burgmüller, Czerny and Hanon. This instrument is also compatible with Yamaha's free Smart Pianist app - just download the app to a smart device and connect it to the instrument!

Using the Smart Pianist app, you can operate the various Voice functions of the instrument easily, and use it to recall scores of built-in songs. Also featuring a comprehensive Piano Room function, the Smart Pianist app allows you to alter the tonal characteristics and resonance settings of the piano sound.

Features for Greater Listening Comfort when Using Headphones

The YDP-165 uses new technology that optimizes the sound balance according to the volume you set, delivering an astonishingly natural sound that's pleasant to listen to and is gentle on hearing, even during extended sessions.

You can also enjoy the natural, reverberant sound experience you get when sitting in front of an acoustic grand piano, even when using headphones, thanks to the integrated Sterophonic Optimizer effect.

Stylish Design Matches your Room Interior

Primarily based on straight lines, the YDP-165 features elegant stylings - incorporating luxurious curves typically found on grand pianos - giving this piano a sophisticated edge that will suit any interior or taste.
