Overview

The Yamaha YDP140 has 88 weighted keys with graded hammer action. You get Yamaha's trademark playability and the remarkably realistic sound of a stereo-sampled Yamaha concert grand. The Arius YDP140 has 6 select voices and incorporates a high-efficiency 6W x 2 stereo amplifier for the 2 internal speakers. Equipped with 4 types of reverb the YPD140 is capable of making a small room sound as big as a concert hall. Also included are duet-friendly twin headphone jacks.

Arius digital piano models feature an increased number of piano samples per-key over their YDP predecessors along with enhanced cabinetry. The weighted action keys, rich timbre and attractive styling make them excellent choices for hobbyists and aspiring musicians who seek an invitingly playable instrument with a design that complements a classic home decor.

With onboard, single-song recording capabilities, the new Yamaha Arius pianos capture note-for-note performances as a rehearsal tool or as a quick and easy musical scratch pad. The built-in "50 Greats for the Piano" songs will fill your home with music ” whether or not there's someone sitting at the bench. Because the YPD140 includes 64 Voice polyphony and MIDI connectivity, they can also be used for song archiving and score notation when connected to a home computer.

The Final Choice!

By A. J. Ortiz

from Lomita, California

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

After a trip to my local Guitar Center (Lawndale, California) and listening to the array of Yamaha's - as well as other brands - set up for comparison in their digital piano listening room, my ultimate choice was easily decided: Yamaha. No question. My next considerations were basically how much do I need in a Yamaha digital piano (the number of voices), and how much can I afford to spend. I narrowed my choices down to both models YDP-140 and the YDP-160. Ultimately, I decided to purchase the YDP-140; I didn't need the additional voices that the 160 provided - I really just want to play piano - nor did I need the 20 watt volume output of that model, which turned out to be the basic differences between the two models, as well as cost... (by the way, the 6 watt output speakers of my YDP-140 have proven to be more than adequate for my circumstances and needs; I set it up in a 10x10 practice studio but the sound can easily fill a larger room). Yamaha certainly knew what they were doing when they designed this model for the consumer (and people who dread assemblies, like me) as the assembly only took little more than an hour after following a very simple, straightforward, seven step assembly using a Phillips screwdriver (and less than a dozen screws) for the piano housing itself (the keyboard is preassembled and merely needs to be attached), and a smaller crescent wrench for attaching the legs for the included stool, as the final, savored step. In truth, the piano can probably be set up by anyone older than ten years old in less time than I took (at age 62), with an extra two hands needed at the end to place the keyboard for final attachment (just as easy as the rest of the steps). Out of the box, you end up with a beautiful piano suited for a living room, as well as beautiful sound, life-like in tone. I also purchased this model specifically because of the weighted keys so that the feel of a real piano could be maintained/transferred when I have the opportunity to play one. So, with a quality product that offers a close-enough grand piano sound (as well as an electric piano, a church organ, or strings), and, among others, an ability to change the tonal quality to emulate a room, hall, or none, a built-in metronome, MIDI capability, easy assembly, you end up with one more Yamaha-satisfied customer here willing to take the time to share his experience with others (of which similar recommendations such as this I also found helped me to make my ultimate choice). If you're still undecided, do as I did and go into a local dealer to test drive a Yamaha digital piano, or just take your chances and take the plunge from here on the internet... either way, you're guaranteed satisfaction for both quality and price by the Guitar Center, so how can you go wrong? (So yes, I compared prices on the internet before making my purchase, and so should you.) I hope this review has been somehow useful to you.

cant stop playing

By Gary Johnson

from Lakewood, Colorado

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

I have had this Digital now for about 6 months, and i cant stop playing it, the feel of the keys is smooth and fast, as well as weighted pretty nice too. It doesnt have as many voices as the others, but the few it does have are that much better. i would recomend this for anyone.

Love This Digital Piano

By John A

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

I just bought the YDP140 yesterday at Guitar Center after doing a lot of research online and trying a few keyboards at other stores. I have a Yamaha upright and love the nuanced touch it has. I knew I wouldn't find a digital keyboard that exactly mimics that kind of control, but I wanted something at least relatively close that I could play in the evening without bothering the neighbors. Then when I played my acoustic, the difference in feel wouldn't be too dramatic (as it would be, for example, after playing a keyboard w/o weighted keys). I didn't care about a lot of voices, bells and whistles. I wanted a few different voices, but the main voice I was concerned about was the piano. At Guitar Center, I tried several digital pianos-mostly Casios and Yamahas. The one I couldn't stop playing was the YDP140. The control and feel of the keys as well as the piano sound was so similar to an acoustic. The keys on the lower end are heavier than the keys on the higher end to mimic piano string thickness. The other keyboards I played felt a little clunky or the piano sound was slightly off. I've been a life-long Yamaha fan (also have a great yamaha acoustic guitar, in addition to my acoustic piano), not necessarily because of the name-brand, but because more often than not, it seems that their instruments just happen to sound the best, imo. Another consideration for me was the solid, rolling key dust cover, acoustic-mimicking pedals, and included padded bench. The YDP140 is of quality construction (and easy to assemble) and looks great in my living room. Yes, for a few hundred or thousand dollars more, you could possibly get a few hairs closer to the feel of a real piano, along w more bells and whistles. But if you want a quality digital piano that feels and sounds like a real piano, without breaking your budget, THIS IS IT! BTW, the Guitar Center staff were very friendly and accommodating (Highland Park, IL).

very nice

By Matt

from Duluth, MN

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

I have been thinking about getting a digital piano for a couple of years now. My wife was not convinced thinking that an digital piano was the same as getting a childs keyboard. After playing both the Casio and Yamaha, we choose the Yamaha. It has all the basic features most people would need when considering a digital piano without all hundreds of voices & features that other synthesizers may offer. We have young children, so when they do learn to play, we want them to play the piano, not play with the piano. Yamaha makes a quality product, assembly was very easy and we were playing it in half hour taking it out of the box.

My baby is happy!

By Hiro Yagishita

from Arlington Hts, IL

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

My daugher who just started piano lessons is very happy and plays it everyday. Of course, it is her daily project. Piano was delivered a lot earlier than expected as it was shipped by regular ground. It took only 4 days!. Box was just a little bit damaged and I was afraid of it. But the packaging made by Yamaha was perfect and there was no damage at all!

Very Nice-Sounding Electric Piano

By Nathan

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

This electric piano sounds very much like the real thing. My daughter is in love with it! The keys feel very real, and the bench is sturdy. It has a keyboard cover and looks attractive enough for my wife to allow it in the living room.

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

I gave away my spinet piano a few years ago and was looking for a small digital that sounded like and had the feel of a piano. I found it in this purchase.

Great piano at a great price!

By K. Huynh

from Sunnyvale, CA

Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP140 Digital Piano:

We were looking for piano for our 6-year son to take lessons at home. We came to a local Guitar Center. We tested out several other brands and we decided this model. The manager matched the price and that saved us a few bucks. This is a great piano and my son loves playing it everyday so do I. I highly recommend it!
