A grand experience from a compact home piano
Immerse yourself in the sounds you create, whether purely for fun or as you strive for perfection. This ARIUS digital piano is a finely crafted instrument made possible by culmination of over a century of advanced Yamaha technologies and expertise. The ARIUS YDP-144 is an affordable digital piano, perfect for students or hobbyists looking for an attractive instrument for their home.
An authentic, expressive piano experience
YDP-144 offers grand piano-like experience, featuring the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand sound, and realistic Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard.
The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano
Newly sampled for the YDP-144, the Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in 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.
Authentic acoustic piano playability
With an 88-key piano action, the Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves.
Designed for your personal enjoyment
The YDP-144 offers convenient functions for when you cannot always play the piano at high volume. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the sound automatically to allow players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level. Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones. When using this function, voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.
From selecting instrument Voices or adjusting settings to practicing with a metronome or recording your masterpieces, Smart Pianist gets you to making music faster and lets you focus on the fun.
Play your favorite songs
Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your Music Library, analyzes the chord progressions and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song play back through your instrument's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play.
ARIUS gives an essence of acoustic piano
Designed to elegantly fit into your home decor, the YDP-144 represents the traditional design of the acoustic piano while delivering the technology and convenience of a state-of-the-art digital piano. Choose from three finish options to best match your music-making space.
