Yamaha YDP163 Digital Piano; Black Walnut
Yamaha YDP163 Digital Piano; Rosewood
The Yamaha YDP163 is part of the Yamaha Arius range of digital pianos. The YDP163 features an improved Pure CF Sound Engine with 192 note polyphony and Graded Hammer GH3 keyboard. The white & black keys are a matte black finish so the player's fingers do not slide when performing for extended periods of time.
The YDP163 offers a really lovely piano experience, with a good keyboard feel and high quality Yamaha CF Concert Grand piano sound. My advice is to buy a YDP163 before they're all sold - only consider the YDP164 if you need Android compatibility.
Try The Yamaha YDP163 Digital Piano In Our Piano Shops We stock the entire range of Yamaha instruments and they are on demonstration in both of our specialist digital piano showrooms. Located in Reigate (just off Jct 8 of the M25) and also on the South Coast in Eastbourne BN21 3JN, both of our piano stores have on-site parking and are large enough to carry a huge range (probably the best in the UK) of digital pianos from all the major manufacturers. This means you can be sure to make the right decision when choosing a piano to suit your own personal tastes and requirements.
Yamaha YDP163 Piano vs YDP164 The Yamaha YDP163 is very similar in specification to the new YDP164 model, apart from some very subtle differences:
- YDP163 has the GH3 Piano Action with ivory feel white keytops. The YDP164 has the addition of ebony feel black keytops.
- YDP163 has oval speakers, whilst the YDP164 speakers are round!
- YDP163 has Yamaha Pure CF piano sound, and the YDP164 has the Yamaha CFX piano voice - a subtle difference in tone.
- YDP163 is compatible with Yamaha's Digital Piano Controller APP for Apple iPad & iphone. The YDP164 Smart Pianist app is also compatible with Android devices.
Our advice is to save yourself some money and purchase a YDP163 whilst limited quantities are still available (unless having Yamaha Android APP compatibility is important to you).
Free Delivery To Mainland UK The Yamaha YDP163 is delivered to you by courier anywhere in mainland UK. Usually delivery is 2-3 working days from order. The YDP163 is supplied flat-packed for very simple self-assembly.
More Than Just A Piano! As well as the CFX piano sounds, the YDP163 is equipped with a number of other useful keyboard & orchestral tones which can be combined (layered) to create a huge variety of combinations. A total of 10 voices include e.piano, strings, harpsichord, organs and vibraphone.
Enhanced Headphone OutputFor many people, the attraction of a digital piano is the ability to practice using headphones - this means you can enjoy the instrument without disturbing others in your household or neighbouring properties. The headphone output of the YDP163 is further enhanced with the use of the Stereophonic Optimizer. This provides a more special experience when using headphones and the sound appears to be coming from the body of the piano rather than straight out of the earphones.
Connectivity To Smart Devices & ComputersThe standard USB connection is perfect for connecting to a computer for use with your favourite recording or score writing software. Alternatively, this socket can be used to plug into your iOS / Android tablet or mobile phone to make use of the many hundreds of music making apps on the market. A popular choice of App is Yamaha's own Smart Pianist which facilitates easy operation of the piano functions through the touchscreen of your portable device.
Onboard Recording & MetronomeThe YDP163 features an onboard recording facility which is two tracks. This means you can either use it for overdub style recording with two different voices or for practising difficult musical passages by recording both hands independently - a way that many piano teachers encourage students to learn new pieces.

Start owning the musical instrument you want now, today!
If you're set on buying your new instrument, there's no need to get weighed down by the total cost of it straight away. If you break it down into monthly payments over time, it's much more manageable than you might think. And our fixed interest rates mean you'll know exactly what you're paying from the start.
How To Apply For Finance
How it works
The finance options available are displayed on the individual product pages.
Pay a fixed deposit, depending on the price of the purchase. The rest is split into monthly payments up to three years. At the end of your contract when you've made your final payment, the instrument or equipment is all yours. You could own that dream guitar, drum kit or piano sooner than you thought!
Finance is available for selected new and used instruments.
Which Finance Options Are Available?
Most products on our website show the available finance options. Some are interest free, and some are interest bearing. The options shown on the site are an example of what is available - if you would like to pay over a different period, give us a call on 01323 639335 and we’ll try and arrange a finance option that suits your budget.
You can apply for finance online, or over the telephone - call us on 01323 639335 if you'd like to speak to one of our musical instrument experts.
All finance is subject to acceptance by our finance provider and a credit check will be carried out on the applicant.
Call 01323 639335 to discuss finance options in more detail.
We offer our customers the ability to apply for simple finance facilities to fund a purchase from us. Once you are accepted by V12 Retail Finance you will be asked to eSign the credit agreement and once in receipt of your purchase, v12 will make your agreement live and your monthly repayments will commence for the agreed term. In short retail finance gives you the flexibility to buy what you really want now, not just what you can afford today by spreading the cost of your purchase over a repayment period that suits your budget.
You must: Be at least 18 years of age Have been a UK resident for 3 years or more Be able to make repayments by direct debit Be in regular employment* (minimum of 16 hours per week) including self-employment, or in permanent residence with your spouse/partner who is in regular employment *If you are retired and receive a pension or registered disabled and unable to work, V12 Retail Finance may ask for proof of sufficient income.
During the loan application process you will be asked for your personal information such as name, 3 year address history, date of birth, email and telephone contact details and employment/income information. If you are accepted you will also need a credit or debit card registered to you at your address on the credit application so that the lender can carry out an electronic identity check.
With most applications we expect that you will be given an acceptance or decline decision within 10-20 seconds. In some cases the lender may return the decision as ‘referred’. You will then receive an email with further instructions once the underwriters have made a decision. For in store applications you can usually wait in the shop whilst the underwriters review your application. Underwriting hours are between 8am and 8pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Bank holidays), 9am and 6pm on Saturday, and 10am and 5pm on Sunday. If your application is referred outside of these hours then you may have to wait until the next working day for the decision.
For finance orders made online or via mail order we are only able to deliver the goods to the address on your credit agreement (your home address). You will not be able to have the goods shipped to another address or collect the goods from us in person.
Returns & Cancellation Procedure
If you wish to return the order then please refer to our returns policy. If we accept your return we will contact the lender to cancel the credit agreement. We may not able to cancel the finance if the return falls outside of our returns period.
Declined Credit Applications
You will be informed of the decision if the lender declines your application, the lender in unable to share the reason for decline with us. Applications are usually declined for reasons such as:
You do not meet the eligibility criteria (see above);
- adverse credit reference agency information;
- your credit score;
- you are considered to be overcommitted;
- or your existing account performance with other lenders.
The lender will give you the contact details for the credit reference agency used. They will also give you information on how to appeal the decision if you wish to discuss the matter. Please note that the lender is unable to discuss this over the telephone due to Data Protection rules. You should also note that each lender applies its own credit score to applicants so if you have recently been accepted for credit elsewhere this does not necessarily mean that appealing the decision on this basis alone will result in a change of decision.
