BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL SOUND SAMPLED FROM THE ACCLAIMED YAMAHA CFX CONCERT GRAND PIANO
The YDP-S55 features a piano Voice sampled from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano. This renowned piano delivers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a superbly expressive sound.
The ARIUS YDP-S55 has the same detailed sound. From the lower keys to the higher keys, it is full of clarity and rich in colorful harmonic content. It gives you extraordinary expressive power and nuance, that authentically responds in your daily practice as well as your most emotion-filled performances.
AUTHENTIC ACOUSTIC PIANO PLAYABILITY AND HALF-DAMPER PEDAL CONTROL
With an 88-key piano action and synthetic ivory and ebony keys, the Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano. You’ll especially love the authentic feel of the YDP-S55; from the heavy feel in the lower register progressing to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 features a three-sensor configuration that accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard. This provides a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control. Moreover, there’s a half-damper feature that authentically replicates the damper action on a grand piano, providing rich expressive variation.

RICH, POWERFUL SOUND PROVIDED BY THE TONE ESCAPEMENT CONSTRUCTION
The YDP-S55 uses a newly developed tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet that emanates sound from inside the piano. This allows you to experience the natural sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance, just like that of an acoustic piano.
RICH VARIETY OF BUILT-IN SONGS, AND INTUITIVE OPERATION WITH SMART PIANIST APP
As you’d expect, the Yamaha ARIUS YDP-S55 has an authentic grand piano sound. However, it also features various other built-in instrument sounds for a total of 10 Voices. These include electric piano, organ, vibraphone, and strings.
The YDP-S55 also has 353 built-in songs, including 50 famous classical songs, and 303 comprehensive practice exercises from famous methods, such as Beyer, Burgmüller, Czerny, and Hanon. The instrument is also compatible with Yamaha’s free Smart Pianist app. Simply download the app to your smart device and connect it to the instrument.
By using the Smart Pianist app, you can easily operate the various Voice functions of the instrument and use it to call up scores of the built-in songs. It also features a comprehensive Piano Room function for changing the tonal quality and resonance settings of the piano sound.
FEATURES FOR GREATER LISTENING COMFORT WHEN USING HEADPHONES
The YDP-S55 employs new technology that corrects the sound balance optimally according to the volume you set—giving you an exceptionally natural sound that’s easy to listen to and is gentle on the ears, even when playing for a long time.
It also has Stereophonic Optimizer effect that lets you enjoy the natural, spacious sound you experience sitting in front of an acoustic grand piano, even when wearing headphones.
LIMITING THE MAXIMUM VOLUME
A new Volume Limiter function lets you set a fixed maximum volume level, so you can protect your hearing from loud sound over the speakers or headphones.
RECORD AND PLAY BACK YOUR PERFORMANCES
The YDP-S55 has powerful tools that let you record and check your performances. Or you could record a part with just one hand and practice the other part while listening along to the first. You can even record two parts separately! For example, record the left- and right-hand parts, or two Voices in succession to make a complete song and arrangement.
PLAY ALONG WITH A PARTNER – IN THE SAME OCTAVE
This effectively makes the instrument two keyboards in one, letting two players play the same piano sound and octave range side-by-side. This is especially useful when learning with a partner, letting you learn and practice parts together.
SLIM, STYLISH DESIGN ALLOWS FOR NEAT INSTALLATION
The piano cabinet has a slim depth that lets you neatly install it in any room, and makes for a chic, stylish design that effortlessly enhances your living space. Moreover, closing the keyboard lid gives the instrument a flat, unassuming look.
