The Yamaha YDP 165 Digital Piano offers incredible realism in its feel and performance. Featuring the soundset of a painstakingly sampled Yamaha CFX piano - Yamaha's flagship concert grand - the YDP 165 uses cutting-edge resonance modelling and an intelligent physical cabinet design to recreate the natural vibrancy and reverberation that you would experience when playing an acoustic grand piano. The digital and physical design of this piano combines to beautifully showcase both the sonorous lows and the sparkling highs of the fantastically well-recorded concert grand.
The 88-key, graded hammer-action keyboard perfectly captures the expression and control of a real grand piano, where the action shifts from heavier to lighter as you move up the keyboard. The YDP 165's GH3 keyboard provides a grand-style feel and response, allowing for rapid note repetition and ultimate expressive control. Modern features such as the Stereophonic Optimizer and Intelligent Acoustic Control allow for a perfect balance and sound at all volumes and whilst using headphones.

Travel from your living room to the concert hall. The YDP 165 features samples from Yamaha's flagship piano - the Yamaha CFX concert grand. The CFX grand piano represents 19 years of research and development, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern day engineering. This harmonious combination has enabled Yamaha's engineers to re-examine every element of the piano, discovering how every detail can impact the sound.
In 2010, the CFX was selected as the winner of the highly prestigious International Chopin Competition. Since then, the CFX has gained worthy recognition as one of the greatest grand pianos of all time. Now you can experience this, all in the comfort of your own home. Boasting scintillating highs and a powerful bass, these CFX samples will transform your practice session into a recital.
Yamaha's Virtual Resonance Modelling Lite (VRM Lite) simulates the sympathetic resonances you would experience in a grand piano, as the sound of the strings reverberates through the entire instrument. The YDP 165 also features a tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet. This propagates the sound from the speakers through the physical piano, recreating the sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance that you would experience with an acoustic instrument.
Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) provides a full, balanced sound with rich lows and clear highs even at low volume. Whilst playing at low volumes, one will often struggle to hear the bass and treble in as much detail as normal. Yamaha's IAC function automatically adjusts the sound whilst the volume control makes fine adjustments to the speaker system, ensuring that you can always enjoy the utmost sound quality even at low volumes.
A great feature of digital pianos is the ability to practise in silence using headphones. The YDP 165 has catered to this feature with the Stereophonic Optimizer. This function works by adjusting the spacing of the sound and the separation of the instrument, resulting in a natural and spacious surround sound quality and immersing you within the piano's natural tones. This changes your perception of the sound as coming from the body of the instrument rather than the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural playing experience.
