Congrats Shokz!

The YDP-161 looks great, and is a perfect fit for your room (is that the loft, btw?).

Wishing you all the best with your new hobby, but don't forget about the washing-up. wink

Cheers,
James

How exciting for you. I remember when my first piano arrived, though it was long before Piano World and when the word "digital" was in ref to watches. Enjoy.

Hi shokz,

Thanks for the pictures, and, let us know how it sounds, too!

Important note:

Be sure you do this, if you haven't done so, already...*

[Linked Image]

You would be surprised as to how many of us (including myself) have forgotten to finish this one step, although it's quite important for the proper stability of the pedal assembly box.

* The illustration was taken from page 36 of the Yamaha YDP-161 Owner's Manual.

Do enjoy!

@KawaiJames; Thanks Kawai laugh Indeed my room is in the loft, we just did it up infact a few weeks ago, got wallpaper, floorboards and a new bed :]

@VegasE; Its been a pretty exciting time for me!! Such a nice feeling :]

@PiRround; Haha, if you've been following my search you'll see its been hectic, wanting a bundle of different DP's, wanting software, not wanting software, I've been all over the place. At the moment I have reached somewhere ;]

@Pv; Thanks for letting me know that. Funnily enough actually, that was one of the very LAST things I did on the digital piano laugh

I've just been playing on my ydp, Was just messing around with it, played a bit of the titanic soundtrack via a youtube tutorial ha

Here's a chance to correct your typo, as most of us don't even notice it unless someone else (with a keen eye) points it out as such:

You did mean to say "Very nice!" without the "t?" grin

@shokz:

As for "Teusday"... two letters, reversed? smile

Just blowin' the "whistle" on you guys!

Thanks smile

I got these with the digital piano, They're actually quite good, Tho when you play on high volume the piano or the ipod it can be heard outside the headphones. When I was playing my ipod loud, it sounded like the headphones were mini speakers I could hear it loud and clear without them on laugh ha.

That being said, I did jump just from normal ipod earphones and this is the first headphones I have tried out, so any headphone will probably sound good to me in comparison to the earphones.

I have been planning on getting some headphones actually, I will be getting some in the next few weeks. Some decent ones, with good BASS and ones that leak minimal sound wink

EDIT; the make is GYC HP500

The headphones I got with the piano, are good enough for me to use with the DP. The main thing I wanted them for was my Ipod, i wanted it to have very good bass. I listen to rock/metal music, so I like alot of noise in my head lol. I may get some sennheisers, akg's or a bose model. Will pay up to about 150 pound for it. The 15 odd quid headphones I just got with the piano have made me very very greedy since I liked them alot after the big jump from apple earphones. I can only imagine what higher end models sound like laugh

Thank you MC. Indeed its unfortunately a long journey to master the piano. But like many other things its something that needs to be done slowly, one step at a time. And the journey begins..

Whoops... maybe you'll need some extra carpet or padding underneath the piano and bench to soften/mute things up a bit?
