A piano with its own classic repertoire
The digital piano is loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for your listening and learning pleasure. Players can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces. They can also simply listen to the songs and enjoy these recognizable piano favorites. This feature is sure to add hours of enjoyment to this terrific instrument.
Optimal tone at any volume level
With the exclusive Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, people can enjoy playing their digital pianos 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 addition of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a truer 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. This ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on the digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.
Connect and interact with your instrument
A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the UD-BT01, or the Lightning-USB Camera Adaptor. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.

I have bought this as a gift to my wife, who has been a a professional piano teacher for twenty five years and she loves it! We live in an apartment and the space is limited, so we could not have a real piano at this point of our life. After trying the YDP 163 at a friend's house my wife was completely sold and overwhelmed from the realistic feel of this digital piano. Bravo to for another superb product!
