The advise of J-F Hanlet

The Arius YDP-144 digital piano has an authentic piano touch and tone that is ideal for any aspiring pianist. The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action builds proper fingering technique for an easy transition to playing on acoustic pianos 


The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX

The Yamaha flagship 9’ CFX concert grand piano 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.

Key-off Samples

This feature reproduces the slight change in sound at the instant you remove your fingers from the keys. What’s more, different key-off sounds are produced for staccato and legato playing.

String Resonance

When the hammer of a grand piano strikes its string, the other strings will also resonate. The YDP-S34 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance feature.

Authentic acoustic piano playability and comfort

Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, and is similar to an acoustic piano. Meanwhile, newly designed speakers can deliver a very powerful sound from low to high notes. The YDP-S34 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion by utilising the following Yamaha technology.

Stereophonic Optimizer—a new kind of headphone experience

When using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the dispersed sound heard when sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereophonic Optimizer, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos appear to come from the body of the instrument. This provides a comfortable, natural experience that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.

The speakers attached to the case exhibit a phenomenon in which, if nothing is done, the volume of the sound will increase due to the resonant frequency of the material. However, installing Acoustic Optimizers with the same resonant frequency within the body of the piano suppresses this resonance. This improvement of the sound is something that has only been possible thanks to Yamaha‘s thorough knowledge of the internal acoustic characteristics of musical instruments.

At low volumes, bass and treble used to be difficult to hear; however, YDP-S34 is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced piano tones at any volume level.

Un beau meuble qui donne envie de s'installer pour jouer. Le son fait parfaitement illusion pour la débutante que je suis.

Veel meubel maar weinig inhoud

Ging eerst voor deze. Heb hem uiteindelijk niet gekocht nadat ik hem uitttestte.
Mooi meubel maar niet echt realistisch qua piano vind ik. Ook pedaal heeft bijna geen nuances. Kocht een Yamaha CLP625 van ietsje meer en de klank en aanslag zijn dan ook stuk realistischer. Er is nog een tussenmaat Roland 140F en YDP163 maar uiteindelijk vond ik het te riskant. Het blijven toch beginners modellen die men snel beu wordt.

ok pour débuter mais pas plus

J'ai eu ce petit piano mais après 2 ans j'ai acheté un CLP675 avec un toucher plus sophistiqué et des touches en bois. Ce piano manque des nuances, surtout si c'est pour apprendre à jouer . Il sonne bien mais on se rend vite compte que ce n'est pas le pianiste mais un son standard qui a été préenregistré.(le son devient fatiguant après un certain moment je trouve)
