About the YDP-165

With high quality voice sampling from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano, the YDP-165 brings home the feel and sound of an acoustic piano without taking the space.

The keyboard has been made to reproduce the touch of an acoustic piano using GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) creating a heavier feel in the lower keys and the lighter touch of the upper octaves throughout its synthetic ebony and ivory topped keyboard. By combining this with VRM lite (Virtual Resonance Modelling lite) and tone escapement construction, this digital piano recreates the feel of playing an acoustic piano without the cost of maintenance nor space requirement. VRM lite reproduces the sympathetic resonance of a grand piano and tone escapement construction places the sound within the cabinet to recapture the natural sound of an acoustic piano making the YDP-165 raise the bar for digital pianos.

The YDP-165 uses new technologies to continue its high quality sound when also wearing headphones by correcting the sound balance optimally to the volume you set. This provides exceptional sound whilst being gentle on your ears even after playingfor a long time.
The Stereophonic Optimizer effect creates a more spacious and natural sound experience when using headphones, making an experience equal to sitting in front of an acoustic grand piano.
