Casio PX800 Privia Digital PianoThe PX-800 is equipped with the new revolutionary tri-element AIF sound source (Acoustic and Intelligent Filtering system). The sound it that of a far more expensive piano and the name Casio would not be the first come that comes to mind. This DP came with no extra accessories and it has the usual basic sounds of grand piano(s), strings, organ, drums etc. I am mainly using it for the piano sounds though I have layered a couple of other sounds the small LCD screen shows song or tone, etc. While researching this DP I had to contact Casio about several things which their websites didn't explain.

Casio AP-200 88-Key Digital PianoThe Casio AP-200 provides all the rich resonance of a fine grand piano. 128-note polyphony provides plenty of margin for high-speed passages and for performances that require intensive damper pedal operations. Using the damper pedal adds acoustic resonance, which is similar to that produced by the vibration of strings in a grand piano. A spring-less hammer system that is similar to the one used by grand pianos provides a keyboard touch that is naturally firm. You can turn off the left hand part or right part during playback of a Music Library tune, and play along with the remaining part.
For my purpose (re-learning piano), all I want is decent piano sound and touch, and it's got that. It's not beautiful -- it's pretty clearly particle board, but it has a decent dark finish so you might not know it from a distance.
This piano is not about sex appeal, but it's appealing in the sense that it's cheap, basic, and sounds good! I'm hoping that this piano will bring me back to a level where it would be reasonable to invest in a great acoustic piano, but I anticipate that that will take several years, and I hope this little guy will last for the long haul.
No matter where you are in the world, we'll help you find musical instruments that fit you, your music and your style. With 76 touch-sensitive piano keys and a host of features, the Casio WK-500 is an ideal instrument for beginners and advanced players alike.

Casio pianos are made in such a way that they can be used very conveniently by professionals as well as novices and people who are learning to play piano. Acoustic pianos are known for producing a high quality of sound whereas the resonance of sound produced by digital pianos cannot match that of acoustic pianos, which is a weakness of Casio PX780 Privia 88-Key Digital Home Piano as well. Casio is striving to make refinements in this aspect by always coming up with better versions. There is a lot of travelling involved for budding or professional pianists which means they may have to take their piano with them.

The new Casio Privia PX-830 creates a new digital piano category with unprecedented sound quality and performance in an exquisite new cabinet.
The grand piano sounds in the PX-830 delivers an unprecedented level of realism and expression.
Available in either black matte or black polish, the PX-830’s cabinet captures the enduring aesthetic beauty of an acoustic piano in a slim, elegant design that is the hallmark of the Privia line. Its 128-note polyphony allows notes to reverberate naturally without being cut off during high-speed passages, affording a more natural sound.

While the sound isn't perfect (even 2 perfectly tuned acoustic pianos will sound differently) it has been well sampled. In my case the box was damaged rather badly (it had been handled by both Puralator and UPS).
The design is clean and simple and it has a small footprint while at the same time being solid. If the day comes where the sound(s) DP's was exactly the same as that of an acoustic grand the I might have to seriously think about it. Lower notes play relatively heavier than higher notes, just like the keys on a grand piano. In the Duet Mode, the left (soft) pedal functions as a damper pedal for the left-side keyboard.
I'm just taking piano up again after many, many years, so I don't require perfection, but I did hear some real duds when I was shopping around; this piano's sound compares favorably with others in the price range. This well-priced digital keyboard includes 670 high-quality tones, 200 rhythms (with a Rhythm Editor), 15 digital effects, auto-accompaniment, 48-note polyphony, preset scales, scale memory, and more.
The pianos made by Casio offer features which are offered by stage pianos including the hammer styled keys, complete size, etc. These efforts have helped in refining the sound effect to an extent where these digital pianos have surpassed the quality of sound produced by the conventional electronic keyboards. Four dynamic layers of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio’s proprietary Linear Morphing System, resulting in a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. The PX-800 carries a large 40 watt (20w per side) sound system to effectively recreate the sound of a Grand Piano. My home it sounds like an acoustic piano, I have had neighbors ask me when did get my grand. I found there to be no real learning curve other than becoming to playing on full sized piano keys. But due to the fantastic packing done at the factory the was NO damage to any of the parts. I then contacted Casio Canada by phone and after a couple of false starts found 2 very helpful techs who answered my questions.
A Tri-element AIF Sound Source incorporating very fine stereo sampling of an acoustic grand piano for sounds that are warm and natural, from the instant they start to sound right up until they decay.
Everything about the Privia is designed and built to produce true concert grand piano sound and feel. The keyboard quality seems fine, and the pedals are metal, so aside from the sort-of cheap look of the stand, it's fine. When it comes to recording, this Casio keyboard has line and mic inputs, USB MIDI interface, an SD card slot for song storage, and allows for 10 seconds of sampling. They offer qualitative products at a very reasonable price which is the unique feature of this company. Casio has put in the best efforts by going for superior quality, designing to match the resonance of sound to that of acoustic pianos with the help of the hammer styled keys. This makes it very essential for the digital piano to be very portable and Casio piano meets even this criteria easily.
This content is provided 'as is' and is subject to change or removal at any time without prior notice. For added realism, the PX-830 simulates the sound of the open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP. A custom wood stand and 3-pedal unit is included, giving the PX-800 a unique European design and elegant appearance.
The DP is solidly packed and in the instructions it shows how to use the packing material as a base to assemble it.

Casio has done a great job developing its current line of DP's and I have absolutely no buyer's remorse for purchasing it.
If, this DP was lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair I would replace it with another Privia of the same series.
The Tri-element system in the Casio AP-200 uses three different samples taken in each range for accurate reproduction of the different timbres for various keyboard pressures.
You can record up to 5 songs made up of 6 tracks each for approximately 12,000 notes total.Other key features include a pitch wheel, Auto Harmonizer, Arpeggiator (90 types), general MIDI level 1 compatibility, song expansion, and 200 presets. Casio PX780 Privia 88-Key Digital Home Piano has advanced features such as built-in lessons, tutorials, and more which can be very helpful for amateurs. Casio seemingly makes sure that the prices of their digital pianos are never out of reach for pianists and always ensures that there is only slight variation in the prices of their digital pianos, all the while providing extra features. The PX-830 also has 128-note polyphony, enough horsepower for the most demanding musical passages and the ability to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry of dropped notes. The speakers can be attached so the sound will bounce off a wall, I attached them to face forward.
The fit and finish are first class and ALL the holes for the screws attachments line up perfectly. In the past 5 months I have tested many models from other companies that cost significantly more and the sound and touch in several cases was very disappointing. Believe or not, since I have begun playing on it my musical ability has improved; I'm told I sound smoother and more expressive. The original AIF system captures every nuance of keyboard play to put powerful tools of expression at your fingertips. The Casio WK-500 has two speakers for your listening pleasure, and also includes line outputs for connecting it to an amplifier or PA for even more sound.
They are helpful even for professionals, enabling them in revising the lessons they have learnt in the past.
Casio digital pianos are great value for money products, among the various other products available from other brands in this range. Reinforced by a new dual 20W speaker system, the result is a grand piano experience that is unmatched at any price. People have to stop looking at just the name of a DP or give in to the pressure of sales staff. The result is notes of virtually the same richness and clarity as those produced by an acoustic grand.
The PX-800 fits a niche for those of us who have limited budgets, small homes or children just starting out in lessons, plus have I said it before it has great sound and playability. This feature also facilitates the pianist to play the piano in two diversified ranges at the same time. It does take 2 people to assemble it, but the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
What I like the most is the smooth, solid, heavy touch of the keys, pedals that responed well. The pedal bar at first glance does seem weak, but once attached to the body it is sturdy enough, though I wouldn't use it as a foot rest. My only minor quibble is that it lacks the same type of info screen that most portable keyboards have and no duet mode.
Except for the little bit of resonance of sound in this digital piano, everything else is advantageous for a pianist.
