The Yamaha YDP145 digital piano replaced the massively popular YDP144 and they have made some great improvements to the sound, feel and features. The YDP145 has a nice responsive 88 key weighted graded hammer action that absorbs the player into the piano. You have 10 sounds to choose from and you can dual sounds together too! Available in different finished (all with a pull out key cover) it makes a lovely piece of furniture. Its compact size and value for money price point make it a great choice for many people. Highly respected by teachers and recommended all over the world, this piano is considered excellent for any one wishing to learn the piano or accomplished pianists too. I think this piano is great value and plays well.

More About The Yamaha YDP-145 Digital Piano...
Travel from your living room to the concert hall. The YDP 145 features samples from Yamaha's flagship piano - the Yamaha CFX concert grand. The CFX grand piano represents 19 years of research and development, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern-day engineering. This harmonious combination has enabled Yamaha's engineers to re-examine every element of the piano, discovering how every detail can impact the sound.
In 2010, the CFX was selected as the winner of the highly prestigious International Chopin Competition. Since then, the CFX has gained worthy recognition as one of the greatest grand pianos of all time. Now you can experience this, all in the comfort of your own home. Boasting scintillating highs and a powerful bass, these CFX samples will transform your practice session into a recital.
Yamaha's Virtual Resonance Modelling Lite (VRM Lite) simulates the sympathetic resonances you would experience in a grand piano, as the sound of the strings reverberates through the entire instrument. The YDP 145 also features a tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet. This propagates the sound from the speakers through the physical piano, recreating the sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance that you would experience with an acoustic instrument.
Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) provides a full, balanced sound with rich lows and clear highs even at low volume. Whilst playing at low volumes, one will often struggle to hear the bass and treble in as much detail as normal. Yamaha's IAC function automatically adjusts the sound whilst the volume control makes fine adjustments to the speaker system, ensuring that you can always enjoy the utmost sound quality even at low volumes.
A great feature of digital pianos is the ability to practise in silence using headphones. The YDP 145 has catered to this feature with the Stereophonic Optimizer. This function works by adjusting the spacing of the sound and the separation of the instrument, resulting in a natural and spacious surround sound quality and immersing you within the piano's natural tones. This changes your perception of the sound as coming from the body of the instrument rather than the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural playing experience.

Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song playback through your piano's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will also allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play.
