Get Enveloped In The Rich Sound Of The Yamaha YDP-184 Arius Digital Piano

The Arius YDP-184 features the stunning sound of the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. You can customize the piano sound in the ----"Piano Room----" by adjusting various parameters such as string resonance, damper resonance and touch response. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) simulates the way an acoustic piano resonates-where the sound of one string causes sympathetic vibration in other strings and the soundboard - giving you a full, rich grand piano sound.

The true grand piano sound, matched with a highly authentic and expressive keyboard, make the YDP-184 the flagship Arius digital piano. By using a similar spring-less hammer mechanism as is found in a grand piano, the GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic instrument, from the heavier feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to create a grand piano playing experience.


Piano Sound Quality Only Possible from Yamaha

Yamaha's flagship 9' concert grand piano, the CFX, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.


VRM Physical Modeling - The Distinctive Reverberation Generated by the Entire Body of a Concert Grand Piano

In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the Arius through enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). The original VRM calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard, as well as the timing and depth of the damper pedals when pressed, from one instant to the next. The enhanced VRM now also calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame. This technology allows for vivid, bright, richly-varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.


Superb Playability and Feel

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action with synthetic ebony and ivory keytops reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard in order to provide a grand piano-style response and feel. This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provide a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.
