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 YDP-163 features Graded Hammer 3 keyboard action with three sensors and synthetic ivory keytops, giving the performer a tactile surface with a response reminiscent of some of the finest pianos throughout history. The Pure CF 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 amplifier. With 192- note polyphony, many of the most complex piano compositions can be played without any dropped notes, and the 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. 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.

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard
Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features the three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard for a response and feel very similar to that of a grand piano.
