Digital Piano Yamaha YDP S54 Full Review. Is it a good choice?

Digital Piano Yamaha YDP S54 Full Review. Is it a good choice?

Yamaha Corporation is a Japanese company with a wide range of products and services, especially musical instruments and electronic devices. Today we will analyze the Yamaha YDP – S54 digital wall piano, which is very interesting. We are talking about a digital piano that is around 900 euros and that I love because of its small size.

  • Hammer Action (The weight of the keys on an acoustic piano that digital pianos try to imitate to match the touch of a real acoustic piano. The keys in the high register are heavier and in the high register less. This is a different concept of sensitivity on the keyboard that serves to regulate the volume of the note. But a hammer action keyboard always has sensitivity on the keys.)(GH3) keyboard with 88 weighted keys
  • Synthetic ivory feeling
  • 10 Sounds (Different sounds of piano and other instruments)
  • 192-Voice polyphony (Number of notes that can sound at once. This includes songs that sound at once. So if you play over an accompaniment sound, more notes will accumulate.)
  • Yamaha CFX Sound Engine
  • Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) and Acoustic Optimizer for a better real piano experience
  • 10 demo songs
  • reverb (Reverberation effect which is a reflection effect of the sound) function and damper resonance with new development
  • Dual (Dual mode allows you to combine two sounds to create a more complete sound. Typical combination of piano + sound of string instruments) function
  • Recording function
  • Triple pedal (The most important pedal of a piano or keyboard is the sustain pedal and is used to keep the note playing even if you stop pressing the key.)
  • Keyboard antidust cover
  • 2 Headphone outputs
  • USB to Host (It’s a more modern MIDI connector. MIDI allows you to do such wonderful things as connect the keyboard to the computer, record a soundtrack and with certain programs pass with a single click what you have played to musical notes in a score. MIDI tracks store note information)
  • Speakers system of 2x 20 W
  • Dimensions (W x H x D): 1353 x 792 x 309 mm and a weight of 40 kg
