Never once seen in the YDP series. The Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano, has been faithfully sampled for the YDP 144. The world-renowned CFX, played at the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, has since been recognised one of the greatest concert grands of all time. And all thanks to the YDP 144, you can reproduce this incredible sound in the comfort of your own home, or studio. The sparkling highs and the most powerful resonant bass notes. Combine the two and you can produce a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall.
Intelligent Acoustic Control
Yamaha understands that you cannot always play the piano at a high volume. And so. The Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) technology has been introduced so you can adjust your sound automatically and enjoy a balanced sound at any volume level. So you can practise and play any time of the day. Even better! Yamaha’s stereo optimizer allows you to play for hours without being disturbed using headphones! Using carefully recorded samples, the YDP 144 allows you to take advantage of the library full of acoustic sounds. With your headphones on, you would think the sound was coming from the body of the instrument itself. An easy mistake to make, thanks to Yamaha’s quality sampling technology.
Authenticity and Playability
It’s incredible! With Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action, you can enjoy a heavier touch in the lower end of your keyboard. And a lighter touch at the higher end. Inevitably replicating the touch and feel of the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist. You can develop your playing technique with the YDP 144. So when it comes to playing an acoustic piano, your hands will be ready! Take control over your playing experience with the matte finish of the black keys can absorb moisture from your hands, making them less slippery even after hours of practice.
