The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano
Newly sampled for the YDP-164, the Yamahas flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

Authentic acoustic piano playability
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, from the heavy feel in the lower register 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 to provide a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control.

Designed for your personal enjoyment
The YDP-164 maintains a rich and balanced sound at any volume level you choose to play at. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the balance of bass and treble automatically to allow players to enjoy a full sound even at a lower volume.

Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones. When using this function, voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.

Closest StoreVancouver, British Columbia
For a few years this instrument behaved as expected -- an electronic practice instrument to mimic a real piano when we needed it to be quiet (you can use the headphones to cut all volume down to others).We've cared for the instrument -- kept it clean and dusted, and its been played by only one advanced pianist. However, it started to glitch horribly (deafening!) lately...at least three notes, when touched, will sometimes blare at about TRIPLE the volume. So, in the middle of a passage, even a simple scale played very quietly, you'll get these blaring, shrill shrieks. We are working on getting it repaired, but this means returning the instrument and waiting to see IF it can be repaired and if so how long it will take. Super frustrating... The staff at Long and MacQuade have been helpful and are assisting us in getting it to the repair shop.
