Yamaha Arius YDP-163 Digital Piano Rosewood

Inheriting the brilliant Graded Hammer 3 weighted key system from Yamaha's premium Clavinova Series and featuring their best ever Pure CF grand piano sound engine, the YDP-163 offers a realistic experience to new and established pianists. New players immediately benefit from the accurate key weighting which allows them to build finger strength and technique, whilst existing players can be confident that the refined and responsive GH3 action will cater for them to ABRSM Grade 8 and beyond.


The Pure CF sound engine on the YDP-163 more expressively delivers the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano tone for the more experienced player with a more powerful 20W stereo amplifie. With 192-note polyphony, many of the most complex piano compositions can be played without fear of dropped notes whilst sustained notes ring through faithfully. The YDP-163 has all of the conveniences of an electric piano without sacrificing the performance of an acoustic piano.

Piano sound quality only possible from Yamaha
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. We're 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
The Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard in order to provide a grand piano-style response and feel. This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provide a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.

Pedalling provides an added level of realism
Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedalling 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. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. It is possible to detect the subtle changes that occur when the players begins to press the pedal while striking a key.

A piano with its own classic repertoire
The Yamaha digital piano is pre-loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for 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. They can also play back the songs to enjoy these recognizable piano favourites.

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, or allowing them to overdub with different voices.

*Recordings are made in Standard MIDI file (SMF) format. Compatible software is required for playback of the recorded data on a computer.

Access your favourite features quickly and easily
Our Digital Piano Controller app for iOS on iPad and iPhone adds a whole new level of functionality to your Yamaha instrument. Turn your iOS device into an intuitive instrument controller, allowing you to access features and settings even more quickly than using the panel of your instrument. Adjust settings, choose Voices, and even record performances. Once you try it, you'll never want to live without it!

Discover an inspiring combination
Combine two voices together, like piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience. Nothing livens up piano practice like playing a piece with a different sound, and creating unique combinations of two sounds together. Experiment with these combinations to discover inspiring new sounds.

Optimal tone at any volume level
With the Yamaha exclusive Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, people can enjoy playing their digital pianos at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the addition of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a truer sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. This ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on the digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.

Full tone built right into the cabinetry
We developed this new technology with an in-depth knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments. Acoustic Optimizer delivers naturally smooth tonal richness across the entire keyboard by regulating the flow of sound and control of tone from the cabinet of the instrument.

A new kind of 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 perceived to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural experience.

Connect and interact with your instrument
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 Yamaha UD-BT01, or the Lightning-USB Camera Adaptor. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.
