I haven't tried the Yamahas so I can't comment on them, but though the PX-800 has a lot of nifty features (SD memory slot, multiple connections, etc) and the PX-720 is almost a bare-bones DP , I opted for the PX-720 because of one thing: the metal pedals. A perfect balance: the classic sound and feel of a concert grand that the musician in you craves, fused with dynamic digital technology to carry your creativity even further.
You are right, YDP140`s touch is a bit lighter than real piano, although some people actually like it. One member here has reported buying a PX-120 with optional stand and plastic pedals and the pedals kept breaking (3 times actually).Yes, the PX-800 has plastic pedals.
I`m not very familiar with Casio pianos, but if you want a touch better than YDP140 you might look at YDP160 which is more expensive but has better GHE keyboard as opposed to GHS on YDP140.
I've had mine for over a year, play every day on it for at least 2 hours a day and never had a problem. When you bring an Arius into your home, you bring with it Yamaha's dedicated 100-year history of crafting grand pianos. Keyboard wise, how does the AP-200 compare to the PX-800?The sound of the YDP was pretty nice.
ANother variant is P140 which is a slab version with the same keyboard as YDP160 but is cheaper. Though it's a different model, I have a feeling the PX-800 uses the same plastic pedals so I'm wary of it. I've read in some reviews that the PX-800 sound is not that great through the headphones, is the AP-200 better?The Casio's are known to have a CLANG sound in their keys after a few months, which I would hate ^^ Is this true on all the models?
With LP-140 stand it looks like this: P155 is an updated version of P140, but its a bit more expensive (I bought one today for $1017+tax, its USA price).


The piano sound you hear with the Arius has been taken straight from a world-class Yamaha Full Concert Grand Piano, used in concert halls around the world, through a careful sampling process. The YDP series didn't seem to cling when I tried them.Finally, is the $140 difference from the PX-720 to PX-800 worth it?Sorry for all the questions ^^ and thanks for the info! But again, I don`t know much about Casio models, maybe there are some pianos with decent touch close to Yamaha GHE.
Through AWM technology the Arius digital piano achieves a huge range of expression, from pianissimo to fortissimo, an area in which digital pianos have consistently fallen short. GH mimics the feel of acoustic pianos in which the lower keys have a heavier touch while the higher keys are more sensitive to lighter playing. These features are important for beginners and experienced players alike, since they provide a very realistic learning environment, and the capacity to interpret even the most minute emotions and expressions.Yamaha seemed to put a lot of thought into the pedals on this digital piano. Some digital pianos come with a separate pedal (not very expressive or versatile at all) that is connected to a jack on the piano unit.
The Arius series goes all out, with damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals already installed as part of the cabinet of the instrument. The length that your notes are sustained depends on how far down you press the sustain pedal. One more thing about the pedal system is the included Damper Resonance, which is another sampling technology that uses comprehensive gradations to reproduce complex grand piano tones.
Some of my favorite classical music pieces require expressive pedaling that just can't quite be captured away from a complete pedal system like the one featured by the Arius. With the Yamaha Arius' 128-note polyphony you never have to worry about lost notes in flowing arpeggio and legato passages.


There are few things more frustrating than nailing a dense portion of music, but hearing your digital piano drop your earlier, sustained notes, creating an unnatural sound cut-off. Yamaha's digital technology allows 128 notes to be held at once.The Yamaha Arius line comes with several other very useful functions. There are 10 voices on this digital piano, so if you get bored of practicing with the Grand Piano sound, you can switch to the jazzy Electric Piano and Vibraphone, play around with the Harpsichord, or blast some Phantom of the Opera through your house with the huge sound of the Church Organ (a favorite activity of mine).
The song recorder is also a nice feature, allowing you to record and play back your own music on two tracks. The keyboard is covered by a sliding key cover, and a music rest and headphone hanger are attached to the cabinet as well. The technology that Yamaha has engineered and displayed in the Arius Digital Piano series takes digital pianos where they have never been before.
If you've ever played or heard an acoustic grand piano before, you know that feeling of joy that the rich, incomparable sound brings.
I don't think a digital piano will ever be able to mimic it's acoustic counterpart to perfection.
But for many people, buying and storing an expensive, full-sized piano is just not an option. If that is you, but you still need a quality piano to practice and play on, I would recommend the Yamaha Arius YDP-161 for its affordability, functionality, and elegance.
