Only a piano maker with over 100 years experience knows how to make a digital piano feel authentic. For the first time on an Arius piano, the inclusion of the legendary Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action from Clavinova reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. This allows for grand piano-like quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provides a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.
Improved Pure CF Engine delivers expressive, high-resolution recordings of the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. The sound of the renowned Yamaha 9′ concert grand piano is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness, making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name. Damper Resonance digitally recreates acoustic piano depth of tone when pedaling, while newly improved reverbs set the stage for you to replicate the feeling of playing in a variety of different environments. With 192-note polyphony, complex piano compositions can be played without any dropped notes, with sustained notes ringing through faithfully.
With the Yamaha Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, you can enjoy playing your digital piano at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the development of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a more realistic sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. The ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on a digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.
