The YDP-C71PE's piano sound comes from Yamaha's CFIIIS Full Concert Grand Piano, which has won high recognition at the world's most famous concert halls and music competitions. The very best piano was selected and an experienced tuner adjusted it to top condition. Yamaha emphasizes the natural sounds that should emanate from pianos. Sampling is carefully performed over a long period, from the sound start until fadeout, to reproduce a natural sound and decay that feels nothing like an electronic piano. Additionally, they also focus on the change in timbre due to the strength or weakness of the key strike that is so characteristic of pianos. Sound sampling covered more than 10 stages of key strike strengths. The YDP-C71PE uses AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling, sounds that most closely express the piano characteristics, obtained through rigorous recording. The Yamaha development team spent a lot of time together with pianists in thorough pursuit of the optimum touch and tone combination, resulting in achievement of natural sound changes that sound like a person is actually playing a grand piano, no matter how the keyboard is played.

The first ARIUS with a polished ebony finish

YDP-C71PE is the first ARIUS that has a polished ebony finish. It adds a luxurious look and feel of the most popular finish found on grand pianos today.

New acoustic system reproduces clearer, more voluminous sound

By using a new amp and widening the Tone Escape outlet for sound coming from the back of the keyboard, the piano sound has become clearer with maximum volume.

128 notes of polyphony: Ample expression with natural sound release, even with heavy sustain pedal use

The maximum number of simultaneous sustaining keys are an ample 128 tones, which lets you perform dense musical passages. Based on Yamaha technology, there is no unnatural sound cut-off even when the pedal is pressed and many notes are played, just like an acoustic piano.

Half-pedal response widens the range of expression

Yamaha focuses on the expressive power of pedaling. The YDP-C71PE comes with three pedals found on acoustic grand pianos: damper, soft and sostenuto. The damper pedal offers a half-pedal response, capable of reproducing continuous adjustments of strength, depending on how hard the pedal is pressed.

Grade Hammer (GH) Keyboard: Natural playing feel and stability based on Yamaha's extensive piano-making expertise

Yamaha used its century-old, grand piano-making expertise to achieve a digital piano keyboard that offers a natural playing feel. It achieves slight differences in touch, with the low sound regions of the grand piano being heavy and the high sound regions becoming steadily lighter. With stability and endurance in response to any kind of performance, it offers the security and quality expected of Yamaha pianos.

50 classic built-in piano pieces and a music book are included

The YDP-C71PE includes 50 well-known piano pieces and includes a music book. Enjoy them as background music, or use it in lessons by adjusting to a slower tempo, or muting one hand in the music to facilitate practice on that hand.

2-track / 1-song recording: Convenient for recording and reviewing your own performances and great for piano lessons

Simple operation allows recording of performances. Since the YDP-C71PE can handle 2-track recording, it can record complete performances or separate takes using one-hand at a time, essentially allowing you to accompany yourself while practicing. Built-in memory stores your recordings.

Dual headphone jacks allow up to two users to practice together in total pirvacy

All ARIUS digital pianos feature dual headphone jacks that immerse the player in their own virtual practice room. This is ideal when the piano shares living space with family members who might require silence for other activities in the home. It’s also nice for pianists who prefer sharing their musical performance when it’s good and ready, after practicing is done.

Features various convenient functions expected of a digital piano
