Although the Arius YDP-S35 has a modern and stylish exterior, it still provides a traditional acoustic piano playing experience. Yamaha has amassed a heritage of more than a century of building acoustic pianos and has instilled that experience in designing and building digital pianos.
From the moment you open the lid, sit down, and start playing, you'll be enchanted by the melodious sound of Yamaha's flagship CFX grand piano. The 88-key progressive hammer standard keyboard reproduces the touch of a grand piano, giving you a classic acoustic piano experience.
Authentic and expressive piano experience
Critically acclaimed CFX punchy tones
Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX performance grand piano has clear highs and resonant, punchy lows that can be projected to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was selected by the winner of the prestigious 2010 Chopard International Piano Competition and has since been regarded as one of the finest pianos of our time.
This feature reproduces the momentary nuances of your fingers leaving the keys, and what's more, it produces different key-off sounds when playing staccatos and slurs.
When the hammers of a grand piano strike a string, the other strings resonate with it. The YDP-S35 can reproduce this effect using the String Resonance function.
The playability and comfort of a classic acoustic piano
The Progressive Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the lower register and a lighter touch in the upper register, just like an acoustic piano. The newly designed speakers deliver a very powerful sound, from high to low, more like an acoustic piano. By applying the following Yamaha technologies, the YDP-S35 can also create a more realistic acoustic piano characteristic sound.
Stereo Optimizer - New Headphone Experience
When using headphones, the Stereo Optimizer immerses the player in a distributed sound field that is like sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereo Optimizer, the tone samples from the acoustic piano are transferred from the instrument itself, creating a comfortable, natural experience that removes all the drawbacks that come with using headphones previously.
The speaker connected to the piano body will have an effect: when there is no action, the sound volume will be increased due to the resonance frequency of the piano body; on the contrary, if the sound pipe of the same resonance frequency is installed on the piano body, the resonance will be suppressed. . The acoustic optimizer takes advantage of this effect. This sound-improving effect can only be achieved with the help of Yamaha's extensive knowledge of the internal acoustic characteristics of the instrument.
