Yamaha is one of the leaders in digital piano production, and they continue that tradition with the DGX-650. A true ensemble digital piano, the DGX-650 has a variety of interactive features that make learning, playing, and sharing music fun for everyone regardless of skill level. With a full-size 88-note Graded Hammer Standard action keyboard, the DGX-650 not only gives you the authentic feel of playing a piano, it also incorporates Damper Resonance DSP and PureCF sampling that gives this digital version true and accurate sound reproduction of its acoustic counterpart. Add-in a USB audio recorder to instantly capture and share your musical achievements, and the DGX-650 is even better than the real thing.

PureCF-sampled piano
PureCF sampling starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo, so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords.

Damper Resonance DSP
Damper Resonance digitally reproduces the sympathetic interaction between strings on acoustic pianos. When the damper pedal is used in a performance, the harmonics of other strings wash over the notes you play until the pedal is released.

88-note, weighted GHS action
A weighted action with heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano.

XG-optimized for You Are The Artist song books
Professionally-arranged, play-along XG song files from Yamaha MusicSoft are matched with best-selling song books from Hal Leonard. Learn to play songs made famous by artists like Elton John, Coldplay, Adele and more with the DGX-650 as your backing band.

USB Audio (WAV) Recording/Playback
Record performances or MIDI songs as uncompressed, CD-quality audio to a USB flash drive using the USB Audio Recorder. From there, copy to your computer to make CDs, share over the internet or transfer to your portable music player. You can also playback uncompressed WAV files stored on a USB flash drive.

Smart Chord
Smart Chord makes you sound like a pro, even if you're just learning how to play. With a single finger on your left hand, Smart Chord will create entire chords from simple Pop triads to complex jazz 7th and 9th chords. Accompaniment Styles create the rest of your virtual band so you can get straight to playing music.

Style Recommender
Style Recommender suggests a list of suitable Styles based on your playing. Play in a piano part, drum part or just tap a simple rhythm and Style Recommender will create a list of appropriate Styles based on what you played.

AUX line input
Connect any device with an audio output and hear it through the DGX-650's built-in speakers. Listen to music from your mobile device, hook up another keyboard or even a mixer and jam with friends. The DGX-650 makes a great speaker system for virtually any sound source.

128-note polyphony
Provides enough horsepower for dropout-free performances even while layering two Voices and playing two-handed, sustained chords with heavy pedaling. So as you become a more advanced player, your digital piano can respond to your skill level.

I wanted to buy a good digital piano for my daughter so she can practice at home. Also, when time permits, I could play for fun. As the experts say all the time, touch and tone are most important for any digital piano and my budget was to find a good compromise under a thousand dollars. There are many brands and models in this price range but Yamaha has the most brand reliability. Other brands I had considered were Kawai, Roland and Kurzweil. They're all good with their own pluses and minuses so it boiled down to the basics - touch and tone. The DGX 650 is a new model and replaces the older 640. This model has the PureCF sound engine and sounds very good (lots of samples for each key from a real Yamaha grand piano). As for touch, it's a weighted keyboard (not fully or heavily weighted) which Yamaha calls GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) - it's definitely weighted when you compare with entry level Casio keyboards but not quite Yamaha's GH. However, for the price range and the purpose (to use for practice from beginner to intermediate) it's plenty. As for sensitivity levels, I could not decipher from specifications but I think it's got atleast 3 levels. So, it is good enough. Now, there are plenty of styles and songs. So many in fact, that it might take a very long time to explore them all. You can do dual (split), layer, etc. A single button is dedicated to go right back to the Grand Piano voice so it is very helpful for my daughter who only wants to focus on the Piano unlike me who likes to play with different sounds and styles. So, this is first and foremost a digital piano and then all the extra bells and whistles! There are many more features which I'm sure I will forget (smart chord, learn to play, etc, etc) and I can't vouch for them since I haven't yet gotten to play with those. Recording via USB is supported to MIDI or WAV format. WAV is good but I wish it was MP3!! As for connectivity options, you have both USB to host and USB to device. For techies, I have been told you can connect iPad using the USB connector to this piano and discover a world of options and use it for learning, playing music, etc., but again, I'm yet to try it out myself and don't know how well it works. There is a single headphone connector which my daughter uses to practice without disturbing anyone else. However, a cool feature is that you could activate the speakers also when connected to the headphones. Recording to Garage Band or other software using this feature is very, very useful since you can record your music along with the built in songs/styles (which we already paid for when we bought the DGX 650) and you can get MP3 (how's that for a workaround to get MP3?) !! When my daughter is ready for more Piano, I will buy a professionally tuned, used upright or baby grand Piano in good condition. The DGX 650 can always be there complementing the real Piano with all those songs/styles/features and when we want to play at midnight silently wearing headphones which we could never do on a real piano :) Last but not the least, don't be misled to believe that more expensive digital pianos are good furniture. Most of them are just compressed wood and if you're really looking for a good Piano which is also good furniture, nothing beats the real thing. I bought mine from my local Guitar Center and they always have hidden coupons which bring down their price by 15 or 20 percent (please ask them) which worked out cheaper than many online prices for me. Full disclosure: I don't work for Guitar Center, Yamaha or any other retailer, manufacturer or music company. I'm also not a Piano, keyboard or music expert so please take that into account as you read my review.

So, this keyboard is under the "portable grand piano" section of Yamaha's website. Unless you have a winch attached to your car, there's nothing portable about this atrocity. It weighs 50 lbs without the stand, and nearly 70 with it. I actually didn't get a chance to feel the weight until I got home, because the dude was nice enough to wheel it out for me (as I was carrying a bag, two speaker stands and a new keyboard stand.) Now I know why he needed the dolly. This thing is ridiculous. On top of that, it feels VERY cheap. You'll realize that when you press the power button. It feels fragile. I was afraid I'd break it just from pressing the buttons. This thing goes back tomorrow.

    Comments about Yamaha DGX-650 88-Key Graded Hammer Action Digital Piano:

    I really love this keyboard. I have had it for 3 years and did not write a review to see how it held up over time. I play this baby every day and it sounds just as good today as it did when I first bought It. The grand piano sound is the best and is very realistic. There are so many different sounds and things you can do with this keyboard I have not been able to try them all out yet and I am still learning. This keyboard can be used from beginners to experienced musicians. I was used to playing an acoustic piano and I could not tell the difference in the keys - they are weighted perfectly. The only thing I wish was different about this keyboard is that it is heavy and not portable. You will not find a keyboard of better quality in this price range, so if you want an excellent keyboard this is the one.

        Comments about Yamaha DGX-650 88-Key Graded Hammer Action Digital Piano:

        I am only 17 but I've been playing piano since I was 3 and I'm very serious about it. Couple years ago I was really looking for a piano that who help raise my skill level as a piano player. I wanted a piano/keyboard that had the most realistic sound, touch, and feel imaginable. When I first put my hand son this piano I was sold immediately. The sounds are wonderful, very realistic, and the touch is absolutely fantastic. It has heavier keys than my own upright piano, which is great because it builds strength in my hands. I mainly play rock and roll so this is a very sturdy, durable, and reliable piano with strong keys for me when I play. One feature I LOVE is the fact you can record 5 or 6 tracks at once, and it's so fun to compose my own songs since I don't have a band. I also used the MIDI feature on this keyboard, and it's very simple to create and transfer files from this piano to the computer. Easy as pie. Keep in mind I'm 17, I'm not kidding when I say this keyboard is easy to use! I recommend it for all ages, all professions, and all uses. I truly love this piano, you can NEVER be bored with it! I learn something new with it every day, and I've had it for 2 years already! This piano won't let you down.
        The only downside is that even though it says it's a portable grand... that's exactly what it is... GRAND, not portable haha! It's essentially like a piece of furniture; I have it mounted and nailed on a study wooden stand because it's so heavy. I mean you COULD transport it if you want but it's really a burden. So it should really stay in one place if possible. But that won't matter to you once you realize how so much more this piano has to offer.

            Bought this as a Christmas present for the wife and she has been playing everyday. The sound is great! My 3 year old has fun playing with the sounds and the demo songs. My only concern was the stand. The Williams brand looks much better at the price point, but the quality of play on the Yamaha is far superior. The wife is OK with the way it looks, so it sits in the family room.
