The YDPV240 comes flat-packed and is easy to assemble (instructions in English provided). The keyboard, electronics and cables are all fixed in – all you need to do is assemble the base. There are four screws that fix the base to the keyboard, four to fix the base together and a few smaller screws to fit the back board. The screw holes are already made and no gluing is required. Even the screw driver is provided! We do advise two people to do the job though – purely because of the keyboard's weight – It's heavy and safer to have a helping hand when lifting it on to the base.

If you would like us to assemble the piano then please call 020 8367 2080.

Yamaha YDP-V240 Reviews

"It has enough going for it to satisfy my occasional foray onto the keys"


I bought the Yamaha YDP 240V last week and it is now up and running. It was the cheapest of the range. I chose that Clavinova as it replaces an older one of some 15 years. I have tried some of the cheaper PSRs but they turned out to be too toy like and were more suitable for small fingered children.

I ordered the Clavinova late in the afternoon and it arrived before noon next day. It is a heavy article when boxed but I managed to unpack it and assemble it in less than half an hour by myself. The most difficult part was lugging the heavy empty box upstairs for storage.

All though this model does not have all the bells and whistles of my old CP 95 it has enough going for it to satisfy my occasional foray onto the keys.

I am a 100% amateur whose only ambition as a retired pensioner is to knock out a few tunes. I mainly use the organ voices as my left hand only copes with the finger pointing chord method ala Kenneth Baker as that is easier than playing full left handed piano.

I should finish by saying that all these digital machines are just computers that play music the same as digital cameras are computers which take pictures and are a few steps away from the real thing.

"Would you say the Yamaha YDP-V240 is an okay choice?"

Thank you Graham, your book was really helpful. We haven't bought the piano yet but we are looking to buy the Yamaha auris YDP-V240. I think this is the correct spelling. Would you say this is an okay choice? We are complete novices so as I said your book was really helpful. We have got a good price in a local shop too!


Reply/ Hi

The Yamaha YDP-V240 has a good piano sound. It also
has many additional features (voices, styles, preset
songs etc.).

But what lets it down is the key touch…

It's only Yamaha's basic GHS keyboard. The same
you'll find on the cheaper model (YDP141).

Unfortunately, the key touch is lighter than an
upright piano. So it's not suitable for anything
beyond grade 5 really.

If you want a digital piano that's good for
learning on and ideal for playing up to grade
8, then there's two pianos at a similar price
point to the YDP-V240 that I recommend for you:

Yamaha CLP430 and Classenti CDP2.

The Yamaha has a slightly brighter sound. It
also has more features.

The Classenti has a heavier key touch that
feels closer to playing a real piano.

The price is also less for the Classenti.

You can read more about them here:

"Any particular views on the YDP240?"

Hi Graham

I've done a bit of research on the 2 you have suggested and whilst they look perfect for my daughter to learn they don't seem to to fit my requirements for a keyboard functionality ie drums, rhythm, sequencer etc.

I was also recommend the Yamaha YDPV240 – have you any particular views on this?

Many thanks again!


Reply/ Hi Mike

The Yamaha YDP-V240 has the same quality of touch as
the YDP141… The key touch is not really heavy enough
for any serious playing.

It does have 2 x 20 watt speakers though. This improves
the sound considerably over the YDP141.

The YDP-V240 doesn't appear to have percussion sounds.
So it may not be the right piano for you?

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

"If not the YDP-V240, what else?"

Hi Graham, me again – I keep coming back!
I purchased a Yamaha Arius YDP-V240 digital piano just 3 weeks ago however, this product has apparently been recalled by the manufacturer and was collected from me just over a week ago. I have just been told today that it has gone to piano heaven as Yamaha have pulled the whole range.
I wondered if you could offer something similar with a similar kind of deal?
Look forward to hearing from you – and who knows, I might actually buy one this time!
Pearl 🙂

Reply/ Hi Pearl

I’ve heard Yamaha have had many problems
with their digital piano production lately due
to the Japanese earthquake…

One of their factories that produced some
electronic parts was destroyed.

I’m sure Yamaha will shift their production
elsewhere as soon as they can.

As an alternative to the Arius I recommend
the Roland RP301R.

This is Roland’s equivalent to the Yamaha

The sound of the Roland is also nice. And
the key touch is responsive.

The key weight is slightly lighter than the
Yamaha. This isn’t anything to be concerned
about. Some players prefer a heavy touch,
some get on better with a lighter touch.

You can read more about the RP301R here:

Another one I like very much is the Broadway B3.
This is great value for money at a few hundred
pounds less than the Yamaha and the Roland.

You can see it here:

Weight: 49 kg. Colour Dark Rosewood

New to the ARIUS line, YDP-V240 is an entry-level ensemble digital piano with 88-note Graded Hammer Standard keyboard. The Graded Hammer Standard keyboard makes it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound and furthermore, the YDP-V240 incorporates a wide selection of amazingly realistic and dynamic sounds for hours of interactive music enjoyment.


Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard with matte finish of black keys
Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboard's sensitivity can even be adjusted to match your playing style. This Graded Hammer technology also enables the instrument to provide authentic touch in a lightweight instrument. The matt finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument and applying high-quality, digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.

Amazingly Realistic and Dynamic Sounds
Yamaha's highly acclaimed Sweet! and Cool! Voices deliver incredibly natural and very dynamic sound.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
237 types of the DSP effect can be added to the Main and Dual Voices. These range from reverb-like ambience effects to distortion and other dynamic processing tools that let you enhance the sound, or completely transform it.

Easy Song Arranger
In addition to each song's default style, you can select any other style to play the song with the Easy Song Arranger feature. This means that you can play a song that is normally a ballad, as a bossa nova, as a hip-hop tune, etc. You can create totally different arrangements by changing the style of a song. You can also change the song's melody Voice and the keyboard Voice for a complete change of image.

Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.)
Play along with a song on the instrument's keyboard and produce a perfect performance every time … even if you play wrong notes! All you have to do is play on the keyboard, and you'll sound like a pro as long as you play in time with the music.

Music Database plus External Files
You want to play music in your favorite style, but you're not sure how to select the best Voice and style for the type of music you want to play … simply select the appropriate style from the Music Database. The panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of sounds and style! Furthermore, this instrument allows Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. These files can be used in the same way as the internal Music Database.

The USB TO DEVICE port on the instrument allows you to connect USB memory devices such as flash drives or hard drives, enabling you to save or load registrations and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device such as MIDI files or style files.

Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer-recorded parts with different instrument sounds – all from a single instrument.
