The Casio AP-500 offers the sound and feel of a grand piano. It combines quality, style and technology in a beautifully crafted traditional cabinet. The AP-500- includes 88-full-size, weighted and graded keys, Casio exclusive AIF sound source, which produces 128-note polyphony so no sounds will be lost. The keyboard includes two powerful 30W speakers, song memory, SD card slot and USB for connection to the internet.
The Casio exclusive AIF (Acoustic & Intelligent Filtering System) sound source delivers all the sound quality and playability of a fine grand piano. High-precision stereo sampling of a grand piano combines with an original new filter system to produce sounds that modulate naturally from the moment a key is pressed until the note decays. The Casio AP-500 piano has a Tri-element system uses three different waveforms of each note which makes it possible to produce realistic sounds in response to different key pressures. In addition, an original AIF Sound Source system communicates each delicate nuance to the sound source so everything from pianissimos to fortissimos is reproduced with the same richness of expression as an acoustic grand.

Comments about Casio AP-500 88-Note Weighted-Action Cabinet Piano:
I love this digital piano. I was unboxed, assembled and playing within an hour. The quality of the product is incredible. Sounds and plays like a real piano. Guitar Center was very helpful. I purchased the unit at a Phoenix, AZ store and got the web price. The service was excellent. I am a novice keyboard player. I have purchased a number of keyboards over the past 18 months. This is my final unit. A great choice.
