Probably a crazy reason to buy a piano but my son and daughter in law wanted a piano at their wedding reception and the hotel wanted several hundred pounds to provide one for the afternoon. I have long had a hankering to learn to play a piano, and thus this was seen as a way to indulge both my son and myself in one easy purchase, and to save what appeared to be a considerable waste of money along the way.

This instrument is absolutely beautiful. It comes with the stand requiring minimal assembly and then the keyboard section simply slides into place and is secured with 4 captive screws. It is very solid, and heavy, once assembled. Everything exudes quality, the cabinet, the full size keyboard, the keys themselves, and - of course - the sound.

The sound emanates from two speakers set underneath each end of the keyboard - they face downward and are not seen. It appears that the main difference between this instrument and the DP162 is the output power, though at 6w per channel the 142 would appear capable of meeting most needs (bearing in mind that an acoustic piano doesn't have an output power as such). If more amplification is required then an amplifier and speaker could be connected by means of one of the two headphone sockets provided.

There are a number of voices available but Yamaha have concentrated on making this a quality instrument rather than an all singing and dancing electronic keyboard, so you will probably only use one of the piano or harpsichord voices. With expert hands on the keyboard the sound quality is beautiful and, to my untrained ear, accurate. It just sounds as an acoustic piano and you forget that there are no strings and hammers inside, no tuning required.

(This review is for my purchase of the rosewood model bundled with bench and headphones from ChaseDirect via amazon for £599, I will mention some minor criticisms, which almost made me take a star off the rating but in the end I decided I was quite happy.)

Very good-looking piano, looks like a plus £1000 model, so you will be happy to have it in your main living room.
The rosewood colour is very dark brown, almost black, with graining, really tasteful imho, nicer than pure black. Unfortunately the supplied bench is slightly lighter mahogany brown (and a medium brown seat), but this is a minor issue for me, some others may want to buy the official yamaha rosewood bench or a generic black bench. The supplied bench is nice and wide and has underseat storage, perfectly acceptable quality. It is not height adjustable but the fixed height is quite comfortable.
The supplied headphones are cheap white ones from Soundlab (gw144w) - but sound ok actually, still would have preferred a dark colour.

The speakers are a little weak on this model, 2 x 6W is fine for a living room but comparably priced keyboards by Casio and Kawai have more powerful speakers, and the YDP-162 has 2x20W which is a big upgrade for the price difference.

The sliding key cover is high quality, it is heavy and strong.

The graded hammer (standard) action is a bit light for some tastes, but a vast improvement on cheap spring based plastic keys. The keys are weighted so the lower keys feel a little heavier than the higher keys, it's a subjective opinion but I like this action - others much prefer the upgraded action on the YDP-162.

I'm no expert on pianos but this one has all the features recommended by my daughter's piano teacher. It has a full keyboard of 88 keys, which are touch sensitive, and a makes great sound, and feels and sounds just like an acoustic piano. There is an inbuilt metronome, and a volume control. The package includes a stool which two can sit on and play duets, as well as headphones so my daughter can practice without disturbing the neighbours. There is also a handy book of well known piano tunes. I think this was all very good value for circa £600.

I used to have an earlier model of this piano, but I sold it many years ago as it wasn't being used enough to merit the space it took up in the very small flat I used to live in. When I bought it, I went around to every shop selling digital and real pianos in town, and though the sound isn't very good compared to the real thing, it's still a pretty good alternative, and perfect for those who need to practice quietly with headphones - something that is possible, but expensive, to do with a real piano.

One of my main reasons for going with Yamaha is that of all the different brands, it had the keyboard that to me felt most like how a piano keyboard should feel. The keys have the right weight and sensitivity - at least for my style of playing (Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata is my favourite piece).

The sound response is very close to a real Yamaha, though of course you don't get the full vibrant resonance of an actual piano.

When my wife wanted to get into piano playing again, as well as our two nieces starting their piano training, I didn't want to get anything but a Yamaha, knowing it well, and trusting their piano-making heritage to still create high-quality digital pianos, and we were not disappointed. The package deal saved us getting a piano stool separately, though we might upgrade to a proper height-adjustable one at some point. The headphones are not worth keeping if you have a real pair already, unless you want a backup available in case your regular pair calls it the night. I think we just threw them out as we have several better pairs.

This one, just like the one I had before, also has midi connectors and a USB connector so it can be used as a MIDI keyboard controller together with a PC or other host. I have tried this briefly too.
