The Yamaha YDP143 is a full sized, graded hammer-action Digital Piano, which beautifully recreates the sound of Yamaha's CFIIIS concert grand piano. Available in a choice of finishes, and with matching stools also available to purchase.
The Pure CF Sound Engine starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords. And the 128 note polyphony ensures that YDP-142 can handle demanding repertoire, even in complex passages, without losing notes.
For every piano player, touch and response like that of an acoustic piano is essential. Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard recreates the heavier touch on lower notes, and lighter touch on higher notes. Touch sensitivity can be adjusted to suit different playing styles and abilities.
For pianists who want to practice quietly, Intelligent Acoustic Control function automatically adjusts the sound so that you can still experience a balanced, rich tone even at low volumes.
A new addition for the Arius Digital Piano range is a USB port, which allows the player to connect their computer, iPod, iPad or other device to the YDP143. This gives you access to using a variety of apps, including Yamaha's own, which give you quick and easy access to sounds, presets, and the ability to save your own presets. You can also purchase a special Bluetooth adapter which will allow you to make the same connection wirelessly.
For silent practice, a headphone connection socket is provided. The sound is specifically optimised for headphones, providing an impressive and immersive stereo image. Thanks to the dual headphone jacks, two people can enjoy playing the piano together in total privacy. Practice as much as you need before unplugging the headphones to let others hear your progress.
Continuous or half-damper pedal control provides the detailed nuance and subtlety experienced when pedaling on a grand piano. This is done by creating continuously increasing amounts of sustain as you depress the damper pedal further.
Damper Resonance digitally reproduces the sympathetic interaction between strings on acoustic pianos. When the damper pedal is used in a performance, the harmonics of other strings are recreated.
The built-in 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture your performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for practicing
