Yamaha YDP 163 Piano Sound Quality
Yamaha’s sound is the result of years of piano making expertise in producing exceptionally accurate and natural piano tones. The rich and authentic sound is reproduced from Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano. This sound is captured perfectly; so you hear every nuance of the sound with exceptional clarity.
The speaker system is improved compared to the YDP 143. With two 20w speakers when playing you can really hear greater nuances expressed by the piano from your fingertips. The bigger the speakers bring greater sound quality with a richer bass sound and more clarity in the top end.
A great feature of digital pianos is the ability to practice quietly or in silence. The sound technology built within allows this without the loss of sound quality.

This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control.
The keys are made with synthetic ivory keytops providing a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping. Compared to the YDP 163 that has matte keys you the synthetic ivory will bring greater authenticity.
