View Full Description
Derived from the design of a traditional upright piano, this elegantly slim Yamaha Arius YDP-S51 is encased in a white cabinet which has both functional form and an attractive finish. The folding key cover protects the keys, looks smart and can also serves as a music rest when require. There are a generous three sturdy, metal pedals that are precisely positioned to achieve optimum comfort when playing, and have a build quality to last year after year.
Thanks to the Graded Hammer Standard keyboard, the Arius YDPS51 has an exceptionally natural key touch. The lower notes have a heavier touch than the higher ones, and the gradual change replicates the feel of a traditional acoustic piano. The YDP-S51 is the first slim-line Arius piano to feature this GH keyboard. Yamaha have also equipped this piano with the option to vary the touch sensitivity of the keys, so that they may match your playing style or finger strength. The piano sound is created by Yamaha's 'Pure CF Expression Engine' which has already earned high praise in the renowned Clavinova range. This technology allows you to enjoy a playing response and expressive capability beyond similar to that of a far more expensive digital piano.
The built-in instrument voices closely recreate the sounds of acoustic instruments - from the powerful lows to the delicate highs. The built-in sostenuto and damper pedals give you added variability of sound, including a 'half-damper' effect that replicates the delicate nuances of an acoustic piano. The new technology known as 'Acoustic Optimizer', which is unique to Yamaha, is responsible for the YDP-S51 being able to produce such authentic sound from such a compact instrument. It enriches and controls resonance by physically adjusting the flow of sound waves. The combination of this Acoustic Optimizer and Yamaha's digital technologies gives the Arius YDP-S51 an incredibly expressive capability.
Yamaha have put 50 pre-set songs into the YDP-S51, providing classic piano pieces for play-along or practice sessions. The 'Intelligent Acoustic Control' automatically adjusts the piano's sound so you can still enjoy balanced, rich tone when practicing at low volumes. For silent practice a headphone connection socket is also provided. Duo mode enables you to split the keyboard into two replicated halves for tuition and duet playing and the metronome function helps newer players keep time.
To play along with your own recording as a duet, use the built-in 2 track performance memory. The 128 note maximum polyphony ensures you won't lose notes even when playing denser pieces whilst the MIDI and USB capabilities provide a wealth of connectivity options.
