Product Description

The YDP223 combines great sound and features in an attractive cabinet that will add a touch of elegance to any home. From the moment that you turn it on and start playing, you'll be glad you made the decision to buy Yamaha, the world leader in musical instrument manufacturing. The YDP223 features an 88 Key Graded Hammer Action. Graded Hammer Action emulates the action of a grand piano - heavier in the bass and lighter in the treble areas of the keyboard (on a grand piano, the hammers get thicker as you move from treble to bass). And nobody does this better than Yamaha, one of the most respected manufacturers of upright and grand pianos in the world today. The YDP223 comes with a selection of 14 voices and features a Stereo Sampled AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) piano sound that feels, reacts and sounds like an acoustic. When you play harder, the sound is louder and brighter. And when you play softly, the sound is quiet and warm. And of course, it never needs tuning! The YDP223 is the tool of choice for home hobbyists, professionals, music students and music institutions. There are many useful features built into the keyboard that apply to musicians at any level of playing ability. Controls Dual, Metronome, Transpose, Touch (Hard/Medium/Soft/Fixed), Functions, Speaker ON/OFF Recording/Playback 2-Track recording/playback; 1 User Song, Tempo Adjustment, Synchro Start Pedal Sustain (Damper), Sostenuto, Soft Metronome Tempo - 32-280 bpm Pitch Control 427.0 Hz - 453.0 Hz (Standard Pitch 440.0 Hz) in about 0.2 Hz steps Demo Songs 14 Voice Demo Songs, 50 Preset Songs with Song Book Jacks/Connectors MIDI (In/Out/Thru), TO HOST, HEADPHONES x 2, AUX IN, AUX OUT (L/L+R, R), AUX OUT (LEVEL FIXED) (L,R) Main Amplifiers 20W x 2 Speakers 16cm x 2 Unit Dimensions (W x D x H) 53 15/16 x 20 3/8 x 33 7/16 / Weight 112 lbs 7 oz.

Customer Reviews

Best darn digital in the world!5 I love this thing! I have been playing piano for over 30 years. Although it can NEVER 100% duplicate a Steinway grand, it comes closer than anything else on the market. You can change the camber of the keys so they can be hard to press like a full sized grand, or easy to press like a cheap keyboard...It's just an all-around good piano. The organ plays like an organ, the choir and orchestra voices are phenomenal and the 4 different types of piano will not leave you wanting for more choices. Everything seems to be covered! Oh, and earphone jacks!!! PRICELESS!!! Some downfalls may be that since it's so light (121 lbs) it doesn't have a solid grip on my carpeted floor. I am hoping it will settle with time. Another downfall is that I can't seem to find enough time to play it! Seriously, another thing they didn't tell me when I shipped it was that although I paid shipping up front, FedEx wanted another $149 to hire a second person and a truck with a liftgate to get it off the truck once it got to my house. Of course, I just called a couple of friends and gave them a beer to help...cheaper than $149! So, beware of extra shipping charges. I'm a 48 year old out-of-shape female and I assembled it myself. It is very easy to assemble but the top piece (keyboard) was a little bit too heavy for just me to lift so I used a couple of kitchen chairs to prop it up and get the stand under it. Worked like a charm! I recommend for all ages, all levels of piano expertise. I don't miss my Kawai upright at all..no more tuning! So, enjoy...no other digital even comes close to any of the Clavinova line Yamaha pianos!!! Peavy, Robinson & Houston recorded in studio with this piano5 Yamaha YDP223 Digital Piano If you are looking for an exceptional digital piano at a great price, the Yamaha YDP223 won't let you down. Excellent weighted key action, beautiful rich sounds...especially when the piano and strings are layered. Peavy, Robinson & Houston used the Yamaha YDP223 Digital Piano in studio recording sessions. For optimal recording purposes, Peavy, Robinson & Houston set the piano tone slider to bright, and recorded the keyboard and strings tracks separately (no layering effects while recording). The rich vibrant sounds are gorgeous. Best Digital Piano5 This is simply the best value Digital Piano on the market. Beautiful notes, many program options, perfect sound. We purchased this specifically for my son who has Autism as it would allow him to explore and develop his musical talents but at a variable volume level that does not disturb his sister or the rest of the family. A terrific product worth every penny. Very high quality built, fit, finish and sound.
