"Pianos for pennies": the Yamaha is a portable piano with full size keys that was launched alongside the YPR6 at a slightly higher price. 5 FM voices to choose from: 3 types of piano, harpsichord and vibes. Even if the features are very limited, the main advantage of the YPR6 and YPR8 compared to similarly-priced Portasound keyboards is the adoption of the higher quality YM2515 chip, the 4op sound generator built for the DX21/DX27/DX100 synthesizers.

The key differences with the YPR6 are the use of keys sensitive to initial touch, a "stereo symphonic" sound option and a more powerful amplifier.
