Discontinued

Ivory-Feel Keys and Polished Ebony Finish

Form meets function in the DP-990R-PE — a sophisticated, streamlined piano with amazing sound and touch that also serves as a functional piece of furniture. Originally available in Medium Cherry (DP-990-MC) and Satin Black (DP-990-SB) finishes, the new DP-990R-PE raises the bar with its Ivory Feel keys and stunning, high-gloss Polished Ebony (PE) finish.

Compact cabinet with an exquisite, stately look

Approximately 30cm deep (approx. 12") in depth, the DP-990R is streamlined and stylish, and has an eye-catching, reflective polished ebony finish. The classy exterior is a perfect match for the Ivory Feel keyboard — a first for the DP series. With the control panel and lid hinges in the same black finish, and with silver pedals, the DP-990R is in a class of its own. When the keyboard lid is closed, the DP-990R transforms into an uncluttered, elegant piece of furniture. With its refined, elegant presence, the DP-990R is a perfect match for any room.

Elegance meets ease of use

Has a large music rest and headphone hook for easy storage. Designed for safety, the keyboard lid closes slowly and smoothly. The DP-990R provides friendly features for players of all skill levels.

88-key stereo multi-sampled piano engine

The onboard voice engine features multi-samples meticulously captured from a full concert grand piano. As such, it truthfully reproduces the characteristic ring and tone of each individual key. In addition, “Piano Resonance” reproduces subtle variations in aftertones and string resonance that are characteristic of grand pianos. With a maximum polyphony of 128 voices, the DP-990R can handle the most demanding performances without note dropouts.

Authentic sound and expressive response

3D Sound Control creates a dramatic sense of depth, and Dynamics Sound Control makes each note distinct. The DP-990R's high-quality piano sound is reproduced through a bass-reflex speaker cabinet.

Continuous-detection pedal

Reproduces subtle changes in the sound according to damper contact with the strings, and controls the amount of release vibration when the pedal is stepped on gradually.

Innovative Ivory Feel keyboard

The DP-990R’s Ivory Feel keys are made of moisture-absorbent material that offer the natural look and tactile feel of real ivory and ebony.

The touch and response of an acoustic grand

The natural touch of a grand piano has been reproduced based on hammer movement — not with springs — giving the DP-990R a beautiful and authentic touch. The keyboard's escapement mechanism produces the beloved “clicking” feel of a grand piano.

Lesson functions onboard!

Build your skills with the DP-990R’s built-in metronome and recorder. You can also divide the keyboard into two zones using the Twin Piano function, allowing your instructor to play along in the same pitch range during personal lessons.

Play along with your favorite songs

The DP-990R can play back its onboard songs, music from CDs*, and music files stored on USB memory devices. You can even change the tempo and key in any of these formats. The DP-990R can also play back only the left- or right-hand parts of its onboard songs and music files for practice. With the optional CD-2e you can create original CDs of your performance.

* When used with optional USB CD drive (CD-01A).
