Perfect for beginning students and experienced players alike, the ARIUS YDP-160 provides true piano sound and feel. The GH keyboard and 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling voices deliver remarkably authentic sound and natural expressiveness, making it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. Dual voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, while a 1-track song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances.

True Piano Feel and Expressive Control
Drawing on over a hundred years of experience and craftsmanship in making world class acoustic pianos, Yamaha introduces the Arius series. All of these instruments provide exceptionally natural, grand piano–like touch, with realistic weight gradations-heavy in the lower end, and light in the upper. The premium Graded Hammer Effect (GHE) action of the YDP-160 provides even greater expressive control than GHS. In addition to its quieter mechanism, GHE features an extra key sensor capable of reproducing fast repetitive playing of a single note with perfect articulation. So Graded Hammer Effect keyboards suit skill levels from Chopsticks to Chopin Etudes and everything in between.
AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling for Authentic Piano Sound
The Arius series digital pianos feature Yamaha's sophisticated AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) with Dynamic Stereo Sampling for the ultimate in instrument realism. Taken at different 3 levels of soft, medium and loud each key is comprised of multiple stereo recordings of an actual grand piano. This provides subtle differences in volume and timbre depending on how you play the keys, and gives you full expressive control over the sound.
Exceptionally natural key touch of the premium Graded Hammer Effect virtually replicates that of an actual grand piano.
Built–in AWM stereo sampled instrument Voices faithfully reproduce their complete range — from the soft, dark lows to the glistening, bright highs.
The damper pedal includes an authentic half–damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound far more realistic than a simple on/off footswitch.
Built–in song recorder and metronome make the instruments ideal for piano lessons, practicing, or even as a scratch-pad for you next masterpiece.
50 specially selected piano songs of standard piano repertoire are built into each Arius, either for your listening enjoyment, or as a rehearsal tool.
