Stunning Yamaha Piano Sound, Touch, and Looks
A grand experience from a compact home piano
The Arius YDP-S55 is a great choice for hobbyists, students, and parents. Its 88-note weighted GH3 action features synthetic ebony and ivory key surfaces for authentic acoustic piano feel. Combine this keyboard action with the sound of the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand and you have an inspiring and highly expressive piano playing experience, no matter what your level as a pianist. And to improve those playing skills, connecting an iOS device running the Smart Pianist app lets you select Voices, record performances, and configure settings with even greater ease. What's more, Yamaha's Smart Pianist app can analyze songs stored in your music library and produce a chord chart, letting you learn as you play along with your favorite tunes.
Yamaha quality throughout
The Yamaha Arius YDP-S55's spacious stereo grand piano sound is the result of Yamaha's century-plus expertise in making acoustic pianos — in concert with their industry leadership in digital sampling technology.

Perfect for aspiring pianists, the Arius YDP-S55 provides realistic acoustic piano sound and touch. The Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) weighted keyboard helps develop finger strength and proper technique for easy transition to acoustic piano. The Arius YDP-S55 is not only your trusted musical partner, but is also an elegant addition to your home decor.
