The white walnut Yamaha Arius YDP-S34 is an 88-key digital piano featuring the powerful tone of the highly regarded CFX concert grand piano, which creates an authentic, expressive piano experience, well suited for beginners and advanced players. The YPD-S34 features a Graded Hammer Standard keyboard, which is designed to emulate the feel of an acoustic piano with a heavier touch in the low end, while the higher keys are lighter. The sound engine also reproduces key-off samples, triggering different sounds for staccato and legato styles of playing. The sympathetic string resonances add additional realism. Additional features include a Stereophonic Optimizer for headphones, an acoustic optimizer for acoustic resonances, and an Intelligent Acoustic Control function, which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume.
The base of the piano includes a damper, sostenuto, and soft foot pedals with continuous control for extended expressiveness. A soft, medium, hard, or fixed touch response can be selected to correspond to the performer's individual playing style. The CFX engine offers 192-note polyphony, which powers ten built-in voices, and two voices can be layered for creating new sounds. A built-in metronome helps keep tempo when practicing, with playback coming from two oval speakers and built-in dual 8-watt amplifiers, or two 1/4" headphone jacks. The Yamaha Arius YDP-S34 includes a power supply and a song book.
