From the Manufacturer
The DGX300 is part of a new piano-focused series of instruments from Yamaha called Portable Grand. Yamaha is one of the only portable keyboard manufacturers that builds and designs real pianos, which makes it uniquely qualified to reproduce excellent piano performance in a compact unit. With the advent of the Yamaha DGX300, Yamaha confirms its leadership position once again. As for sound, the DGX300 features an extra-high-quality stereo piano sample and a generous selection of Yamaha's famous XG Lite voices, resulting in remarkable sonic quality far beyond anything in its price point. The quality is enhanced by the inclusion of two-way speakers and bass ports for high fidelity sound.
The DGX300 features a 3.5-inch disk drive with the ability to read and write Standard MIDI Files (SMF), allowing it to communicate with the world. You can download a song file from the literally thousands of songs on the Internet onto a 3.5-inch disk in your computer, then take the same disk, insert it into the DGX300, and play the song. You can also purchase professionally made MIDI song files and education software with music from your local music store. Conveniently, the backlit display allows you to select a song from the disk by name. To play the song, just push the start button, sit back, and enjoy. If writing songs is your thing, you can save them to disk for permanent storage. And if you don't want to bother writing out the music for a song, you can just record it as you play. Now, imagine recording your child's first song onto a disk, copying it into your computer, and attaching it to e-mail so friends and family can hear.
And finally, even though the DGX300 comes with a generous selection of built-in music styles, the disk drive opens up the ability to load in even more styles for you to enjoy. And guess what, the Internet is alive with people exchanging styles that they have created on high-end Yamaha keyboards. The amazing benefits of having a disk drive inside your keyboard are all there, waiting for you.
