It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Hi all, I recently bought a yamaha digital piano (yamaha Clavinova - clp 535). Till now, it is working perfectly, however, there is something that I don't understand. Why the volume is very low when I try to plug in headphones in the piano? Do I need an amplifier or something? I would also really appreciate your comments and feedback on my original composition

The point of the headphone jack is to practice silently, so the Clavinova probably cuts volume to the internal speakers when the headphone jack is active.
If the volume is low in your headphones even when you have volume up on the instrument, it's the type of headphones you're using. You probably need a pair that are a better match for the headphone amp in the Clavinova. Lot's to choose from. Check here on the forum with a search for headphone topics.
What kind of headphones are you using? High impedance headphones might require an amplifier. Alternately, I know my Kawai has a setting for expanding the headphone volume range for just this situation. Maybe check your manual for a similar setting?
