Digital Piano for Home, School, or Church!
Leave it to Yamaha, a world leader in piano making, to produce a digital piano with fantastic sounds and a beautiful case! The YDP223 is a refinement of its predecessor, the YDP121, adding Yamaha's famous GH (Graded Hammer) action which emulates the touch, feel, and response of a concert grand piano. In this exclusive action design, the weight or resistance of the key becomes gradually heavier from top to bottom.Yamaha YDP223 Digital Piano at a Glance:

Outstanding piano choice for beginners and veterans alike
The YDP223 is the piano of choice for home hobbyists, professionals, music students and music institutions. There are many useful features built into the keyboard that apply to musicians at any level of playing ability. For example, the keyboard has MIDI In/Out/Thru plus a To Host jack, which are necessary for connecting to computers. Anything you play on the YDP223 can be captured into a music program in your computer and turned into music notation. If you wish, you can send the file to your friends and family or just archive it like you would a photograph.
Built-in 2-track song recorder
There is nothing more rewarding than recording your child's first song and emailing it to their favorite grand parent. In addition, the YDP223 includes a 2-track recorder built into the instrument that is extremely intuitive and easy to operate. This feature is wonderful for recording a performance and analyzing it from an audience perspective. But it's not just for practicing; it's also a lot of fun! For example, you could record an Electric Piano part, then overdub a String track and finally, play a Piano part live while the other 2 tracks are playing back. It's like having your own recording studio right in your living room.
Weighted action builds beginners' keyboard skills
Did you know that learning music could increase your child's grades at school? If you are looking to purchase a digital piano for a child that is going to, or is presently taking lessons, you'll be happy to know that the YDP223's weighted action makes sure that all those hours of practicing are well spent, building strength in the fingers so that a progression to an acoustic piano at a concert or performance is all taken in stride. The YDP223's stereo-sampled piano sounds beautiful, and inspires people to want to play. This too, is important. The 88 keys are an investment in the future so that as the level of playing ability progresses, they won't run out of keys.
The YDP223 has an incredible 64 notes of polyphony (polyphony is how many notes that can sound simultaneously, including sustained notes). Just like most things in life, more is often better and 64 notes of polyphony will insure that you don't run out of notes, even in the most dense of musical passages. In addition to playing through the built-in speaker system, all Yamaha digital pianos have 2 headphone jacks so that you can perform to your heart's content without disturbing other family members or the neighbors and still share your music with that someone special. There is also a convenient headphone clip under the keyboard for storing them when not in use. A built-in song library and music book come complete with 50 of the most popular piano songs.
Beautiful woodgrain cabinet with matching bench
The Yamaha YDP223 doesn't just sound great, it also looks great! It's built into an attractive woodgrain cabinet with a rosewood finish. A matching bench is provided. In addition to fitting into any home decor, the YDP is durable and functional enough to work in educational and worship settings.
