Step Ups From YDP 184 To CLP-635:

  • Split Mode
  • USB to DEVICE
  • WiFi connectivity (with optional UD-WL01)
  • Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM)
  • WAV audio playback & recording (via USB to DEVICE)
  • 1/8" Aux Input
  • 1/4" L&R Aux Output
  • 16-track, 250 song recorder (vs. 2-track, 1 song)
  • Bosendorfer Sample in the CLP-635
  • 5 Year Parts and Labor in your home warranty vs 3 years drop off warranty on YDP184
  • Escapement action system, which is more like an acoustic grand.
  • Another difference between the Arius and Clavinova is how their headphone sound. One of the biggest advantages of a digital piano over an acoustic one is the ability to practice silently and the CLP600 series has stepped it up a notch with binaural sampling. To put it simply, when you wear headphones whilst playing any CLP600 piano, it’s as if your sat in the playing position of $200k Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. The sound hits the front of you in wonderful stereo, as it would be if playing an acoustic grand, instead of just directly into your ear from the sample. It’s a strange sensation at first! It makes playing with headphones feel more natural and enables you to do it for longer without ear fatigue.
