From the manufacturer
Yamaha Arius Series Digital Console Pianos
From the makers of the world's finest acoustic pianos for over a century, come the world's best digital pianos. The Arius Series has all of the conveniences of an electric piano without sacrificing the performance of an acoustic piano.
The best digital piano is one that can grow with a musician as they progress. When a pianist's skill level rises, they require a keyboard action built for more serious playing. The Arius Series features Graded Hammer keyboard action and synthetic ivory keytops, giving the performer a tactile surface with a response reminiscent of some of the finest pianos throughout history.
Unrivaled Sound quality
The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of many years of piano-making history and expertise, combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology. Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology, and this is evident when listening to Yamaha digital pianos that utilize the Pure CF Sound Engine. The sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness, making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.
Superb Playability and Feel
A Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, and is similar to the hammers inside an acoustic piano. GHS is great for the aspiring pianist, because practicing with the GHS action builds proper finger technique for playing on an acoustic piano. Additionally, the matte finish of the black keys makes them less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
Realistic Pedal Performance
Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes, from slight to full, as the sustain pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. The result is more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. Subtle changes occur when the player begins to press the pedal while striking a key.
New Headphone Experience
The Stereophonic Optimizer is unique to Yamaha. When playing and listening to the instrument using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano, resulting in a spacious, surround sound quality that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Within this private listening environment, the sound of the piano can be a more realistic and natural experience.
A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the the Lightning-USB Camera Adaptor or wirelessly using the Yamaha UD-BT01. The "Digital Piano Controller" app has an attractive interface optimized for iOS touch screens, adding a whole new level of functionality to your Yamaha instrument. Adjust settings, choose Voices, and even record performances.
The Yamaha digital piano is pre-loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for your listening and learning pleasure. Players can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces.
Capture your Performance
The recording function built into the instrument allows players to record performances* with a single touch. Additionally, players can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, meaning that both hands can be recorded separately.

1 - More reasonable price for our playing schedule
2 - Fully digital so you can add in a flute, guitar, drums, etc... to accompany any piano piece. (cannot do on a classical piano and some Clavinovas). You can also signal process with the YDP-V240 so that your piano takes on the sound of say a 17th century harpsichord, a Greek lute or dozens of other instruments.
3 - If you are learning and dont want to disrupt others in nearby rooms, you can plug in headphones and the piano music will pass only thru them (so anyone nearby will hear nothing). (obviously, cannot do on a classical piano) This allows my young son to start learning how to play without driving me mad in the next room.
4 - Has a digital volume knob. With a real piano it is bit hard to make your music level very quiet or very loud, but with the V240, you can play at literally a whisper or so loud, that your ear drums will ache. Another very handy feature that we use with our small son.
5 - Accepts USB keys, so you can add music files digitally or store your own creations in a USB memory stick.
6 - Fully compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10, so you can alter and manipulate your own music from piano to PC and back again. (cannot do with some Clavinovas) Since I purchased the Arius V240, support has been added for Apple users as well.
7 - Has a nice sliding key guard to prevent dust when the piano is not in use.
8 - Has a slightly smaller form factor than regular sized pianos and will be easier to accommodate if you live in a apartment of smaller home.
This Arius model also comes with the pedals and bench. The piano is also easy to assemble and is made from a nice solid wood. It is a bit heavy at perhaps 140 lbs (65 kg) when first delivered, so if you are a smaller woman/live alone, etc... you might need a hand with getting it inside the house and setup. While our piano may not have the full acoustic effects that some purists and many professional artists look for in their piano, my wife and I are very happy with this YDP-V240 model. For now, 4.9 stars out of five.
