The Yamaha YDP164 Arius digital piano is a brilliant step up from the Yamaha YDP144 beginners piano. The YDP 164 offers a more accurate touch and response along with better repetition over the YDP144. Furthermore you will find the piano tone greatly improved, all thanks to its better speaker configuration.
The YDP-164 features a new sample from the CFX 9' concert grand piano. The CFX concert grand, played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times. Therefore the YDP Offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass. Furthermore, a sound that appears to project to the furthest reaches of any concert hall.
Acoustic piano playability:
Authentic piano feel with an 88-key piano action and synthetic ivory and ebony keys. The Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 features a three-sensor configuration that accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard. This enables it to provide a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control.
Designed for your personal enjoyment:
The YDP164 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.
Classic & Elegant:
Designed to elegantly fit into your home decor. The YDP-164 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.

This is our free option and the fastest. (subject to stock) This option involves a courier delivering the piano on a pallet. It will be delivered at street level to your front door but cannot be delivered up any steps and will not be delivered into your home. We highly recommend having someone assist you with moving the piano as the boxes are large and heavy. You will be responsible for building the piano and disposing of all packages.
This option is done by either ourselves or by a specialist piano courier. They will deliver the piano into your home to the room of your choosing. It will be delivered in it's box and will require self assembly. You will be responsible for removing the packaging and disposing of it. If the box will not fit into the room or up the stairs, the company will remove individual components and place them in the room. You will still be responsible for assembly and disposal of all packaging. This service can generally be timed to suit you, but this is not a guarantee. You will be provided with a 2 hour delivery window by ourselves or the piano courier.
Our premium delivery service is all inclusive and one of our most popular options. Ourselves or a specialist courier will deliver the piano at a time to suit you.
