Product Description

Color: Black Walnut

Authentic tone deserves a classic touch

Suitable for advanced players as well as beginners, the new Graded Hammer action with Synthetic Ivory Keytops is weighted to match the resistance of hammers in a grand piano. And now Synthetic Ivory Keytops give that porous, tactile feel you would only expect from an acoustic piano manufacturer like Yamaha. Its surface absorbs finger moisture allowing serious players to comfortably play for longer periods of time.


Features
  • GH(Graded Hammer) keyboard with Synthetic ivory keytops
  • Pure CF Sound Engine
  • 10 Demo Songs, 50 Piano Preset Songs
  • 20W x 2 Speaker System Built In
Piano quality only possible from Yamaha

PureCF 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.

At 33 inches, the YDP162 is taller than previous ARIUS models. Not only does this greater cabinet size give a more substantial upright piano look to the YDP-162, but it also helps deliver deeper piano sound acoustically.

The power to play more

The built-in, 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture a performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for hands-separate practicing at any tempo you're comfortable with. Now you can practice one hand, while your Arius plays the other.

128-note polyphony provides enough horsepower for a dropout-free performances even while layering two Voices and playing two-handed, sustained chords with heavy pedaling. So as you become a more advanced player, your digital piano can respond to your skill level.

The keys themselves feel more like ivory than plastic -- there's a matte feel to them that's nice.
C. Liston
I've listened to harpsichord/fortepiano/modern piano sonatas & concerto's for years so I can say that I'm familiar with real piano sound quality.
Stephen E.
It has enough interesting sound techniques to keep her busy trying new things, but yet it's also like a real piano.

I wanted a Clavinova but after saving for years, I realized that even the used ones are overpriced on places like Craigslist. After months of research, I ordered the Yamaha Arius YDP-162R from Amazon. It arrived two days later, on my birthday. The UPS man would not unload it by himself, and I'm an old lady so I couldn't really help him. He had to come back later when my husband was home, and the two of them easily got it up to the living room. My husband and I spent the next hour carefully reading the instructions and putting the piano together. It comes in large integrated pieces -- the keyboard, the two sides, and the back. And the bench. Everything is included, and you connect the pedals to the keyboard/computer section. It was easy, but it helps to have two people to set the keyboard on the base.

The Arius YDP-162R looks like a nice piece of furniture. The rosewood option is very, very dark brown; almost black. It's heavy and doesn't move around when you play, even at fortissimo. It has two or three piano voices, an electric piano voice, a harpsichord voice, and maybe something else I can't remember, but I never use them anyway. I use the grand piano 1 voice exclusively.

The sound through headphones is awesome, simply awesome! I play for hours because it sounds so good. I live in an apartment and don't want to disturb the neighbors, thus I wear headphones. That's why I wanted a digital, and I am so pleased with the sound of this piano.

The weak link is the speakers, although for anyone but an advanced player, the speakers will be fine. To me, there's just a hint of "digital" sound when heard through the speakers. My husband and friends cannot hear it. They think it's glorious even through the speakers.

Color Name: Dark Rosewood
I totally agree with the other reviewer of this digital piano. Her review sealed my decision to make this purchase after I returned a Casio which was poor quality overall with a toyish feel. This digital piano, however, is far from a toy. I am a complete beginner at piano but wanted something as close to a grand piano experience as possible on my budget.

I've listened to harpsichord/fortepiano/modern piano sonatas & concerto's for years so I can say that I'm familiar with real piano sound quality. The Harpsichord voicing is the most realistic I've ever heard in a lower priced digital to date and the fact that the pitch is adjustable should make the Harpsichord sound even more accurate.

This instrument, especially for the quality and price, is leagues beyond the Casio's and other 'plastic' keyboards around the $1,000.00 range. Keep in mind that the 20 watt sound system won't knock the walls down but is sufficient for home use and there's no LED readout to show settings values. At 0 or very low volume the keys do make a minute thud; I don't consider this a negative. I do wish there was a bit more balance between the loudness of the high and low range of the keyboard with the supplied Grand samples in regards to a softer touch [possibly a velocity curve adjustment would fix? I haven't got that far yet].

The key fit/finish/feel/action is superb. The keyboard unit without the stand attached is very heavy suggesting solid construction; no curvature or sag when eyeing/viewing the keys from the side as the Casio [$799] did. The general structure is high quality and substantial engineered wood and NO cardboard. The bench quality contains actual real wood legs and a thick plywood seat base with HEAVY attachment bolts.

We own a U1 upright yamaha with which we are thorougly happy with, however, our eldest daughter has transformed from a budding learner to an talented pianist who practices constantly :) I ordered this electric because of the good reviews and Yamaha's well earned reputation. It was a good choice. Though it will never replace an acoustic piano the Arius is a very good facsimile for headhone(quiet)practice. It also is an acceptable stand-in for the acoustic while playing through the speakers. The action is very good and the material of the keys feels almost identical to the feel of a "real piano". Alhough I find the voices a little gimmicky having three piano iterations is useful since the 3rd one most approaches our upright, the other 2, as advertised, mimick the resonance of grand pianos. Assembly is very simple but to, my surprise, there is no included assembly manual, the instructions are on the box itself. A word of advice, though the piano is "normal" sized, the shipping box is huge and heavy, the packaging weighs 50% as much as the piano, a dolly is a must to move it around. Our pianist is delighted (much better than the practice pianos in the conservatory) with it and now we get a little more quiet time than before. Personally I think this is a great choice for practicing proffesionals and for learners that dont want to invest, as of yet, on an a very expensive acoustic instrument. Id give it five stars but musicians would pummel me for giving a perfect score to something that is not the "real thing" LOL!
