PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical
shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Water warning
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators. Also, do
not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, or place heavy objects on it.
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage is
printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (page 32) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in
damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions,
place on it any containers (such as vases, bottles or glasses) containing liquids
which might spill into any openings. If any liquid such as water seeps into the
instrument, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC
outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over
and cause a fire.
Do not open
• This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not open the instrument or
attempt to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it should
appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by
qualified Yamaha service personnel.
If you notice any abnormality
• When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the power switch
and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. Then have the device inspected by
Yamaha service personnel.
- The power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged.
- It emits unusual smells or smoke.
- Some object has been dropped into the instrument.
- There is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Location
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector.
Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the
outlet.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall
over.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the
plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• When transporting or moving the instrument, always use two or more people.
Attempting to lift the instrument by yourself may damage your back, result in other
injury, or cause damage to the instrument itself.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for
extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables, to prevent damage to
the cables or injury to anyone who might trip over them.
Assembly
• Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly process. Failure
to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might result in damage to the
instrument or even injury.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily
accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power
switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is
turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When you
are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power cord from
the wall AC outlet.
• Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack,
use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal
components or result in the instrument falling over.

• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a high
or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you
experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
ENGLISH
Connections
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power
for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all
volume levels to minimum.
• Be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually
raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening
level.
Using the bench (If included)
• Do not place the bench in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.
• Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as a tool or stepladder or
for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.
• Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the possibility
of accident or injury.
Handling caution
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the key cover or instrument. Also take
care that the key cover does not pinch your finger.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the key cover,
panel or keyboard. This could cause physical injury to you or others, damage to the
instrument or other property, or operational failure.
• If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten them
periodically using the included tool.
• Keep special watch over any small children so that they don’t fall off the rear of the
bench. Since the bench does not have a backrest, unsupervised use may result in
accident or injury.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use
excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Even when the [
] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (power lamp is off), electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level.
When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Basic Operations
Damper Pedal (Right)
Pressing this pedal will sustain notes longer. Releasing
this pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained
notes. This pedal also features a “half-pedal” function
that creates partial sustain effects, depending on how
far down you press the pedal.
NOTE
If the damper pedal doesn’t
work, make sure that the
pedal cord is properly
plugged into the main unit
(page 30).
When you press the damper
pedal here, this note and the
notes you play before you
release the pedal sustain longer.
Sostenuto Pedal (Center)
Pressing this pedal while holding the notes will sustain
the pressed notes (as if the Damper Pedal had been
pressed), but all subsequently played notes will not be
sustained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord or
single low note, for example, while the other notes are
played “staccato.”
When you press the sostenuto
pedal here while holding the
note, the note will sustain as
long as you hold the pedal.
ENGLISH
Using the Pedals
Half-pedal function
This function allows you to
vary the sustain length
depending on how far the
pedal is pressed. The
farther down you press the
pedal, the more the sound
sustains. For example, if
you press the damper pedal
and all notes you are
playing sound a bit murky
and loud with too much
sustain, you can release the
pedal half way or higher to
decrease the sustain
(murkiness).
Soft Pedal (Left)
NOTE
Pressing this pedal will reduce the volume and slightly change the timbre of the notes. The
notes played before this pedal is pressed are not affected. When you select the Jazz
Organ Voice, pressing the left pedal switches between fast/slow rotation of the rotary
speaker (page 16).
While the sostenuto pedal is
held, the organ and strings
Voices sound continuously
without decay after the notes

Maintenance
To keep your ARIUS in optimum condition, we recommend that you periodically follow the maintenance points below.
Instrument and Bench Maintenance
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth.
NOTICE
Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• In the case of a model with a polished finish, gently remove dust and dirt with a soft cloth. Do not wipe too hard since
small particles of dirt can scratch the instrument’s finish.
To keep the surface polished, apply commercially available piano polisher to a soft cloth and wipe the instrument’s
surface with it. Then, polish it with a separate cloth. Before using any piano polisher, make sure to read the instructions
for proper usage.
• Tighten the screws of the instrument and bench periodically.
Pedal Cleaning
As with an acoustic piano, pedals may become tarnished over years of use. When this occurs, polish the pedal with a
compound designed for piano pedals. Before using the compound, make sure to read the instructions for proper usage.
Tuning
Unlike an acoustic piano, this instrument does not need to be tuned by an expert (although the pitch can be user-adjusted
to match other instruments). This is because the pitch of digital instruments is always maintained perfectly.
When transporting
You can load this instrument onto a truck, either fully
assembled or disassembled. When doing so, do not lean
the instrument (especially the keyboard unit) against a
wall, and make sure to lay it horizontally in the truck. When
transporting by truck, do not subject the instrument to
excessive vibration or shock. If you transport the
instrument fully assembled, make sure to check all the
screws then tighten them as necessary.
