ARIUS Series Video Overview
Enjoyment that stays with you
The luxurious tone and expressive ease of playing stays true to the basics of a real piano. It almost plays itself, releasing the sound and music you have within. Start your day with music and a huge smile on your face—the ARIUS piano makes you want to play more and more.
Limiting the maximum volume
A new Volume Limiter function lets you set a fixed maximum volume level, to protect your hearing from loud sound over the speakers or headphones.
Features for greater listening comfort when using headphones
The YDP-S55 employs new technology that corrects the sound balance optimally according to the volume you set—giving you an exceptionally natural sound that’s easy to listen to and is gentle on the ears, even when playing for a long time.
It also has Stereophonic Optimizer effect that lets you enjoy the natural, spacious sound you experience sitting in front of an acoustic grand piano, even when wearing headphones.
Record and play back your performances
The YDP-S55 has powerful tools that let you record and check your performances, or record a part with just one hand and practice the other part while listening along to the first. Moreover, you can record two parts separately—for example, the left- and right-hand parts, or record two Voices in succession to make a complete song and arrangement.
Play along with a partner — in the same octave
This effectively makes the instrument two keyboards in one, letting two players play the same piano sound and octave range side-by-side. This is especially useful when learning with a partner, letting you learn and practice parts together.

With an 88-key piano action, the GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from a naturally heavy feel in the lower key to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 keyboard provides a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control.
Harmonic resonance like that of a grand piano. Our innovative Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) recreates the resonance of the soundboard, rim and frame to emulate the natural feeling of an acoustic piano. Even while wearing headphones.
One of the allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. The YDP-S55 elaborately reproduces this rich sympathetic resonance through a groundbreaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modeling Lite (VRM Lite). VRM Lite creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings, corresponding to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedaling.
Half-damper pedal control. Soft (una corda), sostenuto and sustaining (damper) pedals provide the essential feeling and control reminiscent of anfound on all acoustic pianos.
Moreover, there’s a half-damper feature that authentically replicates the damper action on a grand piano, providing rich expressive variation.
