The YDP-161 uses AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling to produce sounds that most closely express the piano characteristics, obtained through rigorous recording. The ARIUS YDP-161 also uses a new amp. The “Tone Escape” outlet for sound coming from the back of the keyboard has been widened which results in a clearer sound with increased volume feel.
