The black walnut YDP-162 Arius 88-Key Digital Piano from Yamaha features a graded-hammer action keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops that is designed to emulate the feel of an acoustic piano. It has Damper, Sostenuto, and Soft foot pedals with continuous control. It provides playback from its two oval speakers and built-in dual 20-watt amplifiers or its two 1/4" headphone jacks. The YDP-162 allows you to select between hard, medium, and soft sensitivity types to correspond with your playing style.
The YDP-162 is built on Yamaha's PureCF sound engine that powers its ten built-in voices. You can combine two voices simultaneously, allowing you to create new sounds. It also features Yamaha's Acoustic Optimizer, which is designed to adjust acoustical flow and control resonances.
A built-in two-track MIDI recorder allows you to capture a performance and play it back. Using this feature, you can record your right- and left-hand performances separately at any tempo. The YDP-162 also comes with 50 songs built into its internal memory, allowing you to learn the tracks at a reduced tempo or one hand at a time.
