Highlights

BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL SOUND SAMPLED FROM THE ACCLAIMED YAMAHA CFX CONCERT GRAND PIANO

The YDP-165 features a piano Voice sampled from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano—a renowned piano that delivers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a superbly expressive sound.

The YDP-165 has the same detailed sound—from the lower keys to the higher keys—full of clarity and rich in colorful harmonic content. It gives you extraordinary expressive power and nuance, that authentically responds in your daily practice as well as your most emotion-filled performances.

AUTHENTIC ACOUSTIC PIANO PLAYABILITY AND HALF-DAMPER PEDAL CONTROL

With an 88-key piano action, the GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from a naturally heavy feel in the lower key to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 keyboard provides a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control. Moreover, there’s a half-damper feature that authentically replicates the damper action on a grand piano, providing rich expressive variation.

HARMONIC RESONANCE LIKE THAT OF A GRAND PIANO—VIRTUAL RESONANCE MODELING LITE (VRM LITE)

One of the allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. The YDP-165 elaborately reproduces this rich sympathetic resonance through a groundbreaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modeling Lite (VRM Lite). VRM Lite creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings, corresponding to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedaling.

RICH, POWERFUL SOUND PROVIDED BY THE TONE ESCAPEMENT CONSTRUCTION

The YDP-165 uses a newly developed tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet that emanates sound from inside the piano. This allows you to experience the natural sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance like that of an acoustic piano.

RICH VARIETY OF BUILT-IN SONGS, AND INTUITIVE OPERATION WITH SMART PIANIST APP

Naturally, the YDP-165 has an authentic grand piano sound, but it also features various other built-in instrument sounds, for a total of 10 Voices—including electric piano, organ, vibraphone, and strings.

The YDP-165 also has 353 built-in songs, including 50 famous classical songs, and 303 comprehensive practice exercises from famous methods, such as Beyer, Burgmüller, Czerny, and Hanon. The instrument is also compatible with Yamaha’s free Smart Pianist app—simply download the app to your smart device and connect it to the instrument.

With the Smart Pianist app, you can easily operate the various Voice functions of the instrument and use it to call up scores of the built-in songs. It also features a comprehensive Piano Room function for changing the tonal quality and resonance settings of the piano sound.
