Overview

The Privia Series digital pianos have provided a strong option for people seeking an affordable digital piano with authentic sound and action since its introduction in 2003. The PX160GD is part of the latest version of the Privia series, housed in a classic black chassis. It is stylish and handsome, and every bit a Privia.

Some newer technologies have been installed in the latest Privia, notably Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR sound generation. Privia piano sounds and other keyboard sounds have never been more realistic both in terms of the precise timbre and in terms of how that timbre responds to key touch. The chief reason to get a digital piano of course is the piano sound, and the PX160GD's piano, created with Casio's AiR technology (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator), is as accurate and satisfying a piano timbre as any other on the market in its price range.

With more than three times the memory of the previous iteration of the Privia series, the AiR processor provides four discrete samples that trigger according to velocity. This means that when you play a forte passage, not only is it louder, it simulates the fire and explosiveness of an acoustic piano played at a louder dynamic. Adjacent strings vibrate, and the character of the attack varies wildly according to playing volume, and the multiple samples triggered by velocity enable the new generation of Privia pianos to emulate an acoustic piano's vast range of expression. AiR even simulates the sound of the open strings when the damper pedal is engaged.

Quality sound system
Sure, it looks on paper like it should sound great, but there is a vast chasm between the printed circuit board and your ears. That's where the Privia's sound system comes in. First, the sounds are amplified in stereo by two eight-watt power stages. The stereo presentation of the sounds preserves a beautiful stereo imaging created in the original samples, and additionally apply stereo effects like chorus and vibrato for an enchanting listening and playing experience. The speakers are ported to the rear, so when you place your Privia against a wall (which is where it typically will reside), you experience a rich and thrilling enhanced low end. Quality transducers, clean power and a smart port design make a magnificent reproduction system for the latest Privia keyboard samples.

Connectivity and sequencing
Connecting to your computer is fast and easy with Privia via USB. You can use the USB connection to control virtual instruments and other music software applications including sequencing, notation and recording programs. You can offload completed sequences from the built-in two track digital recorder, or bring other songs into the Privia for playback in song mode.

Casio Privia PX-160 Digital Keyboard

By Glenn

Comments about Casio PX-160BK Digital Piano:

Wow! I went out shopping for a keyboard that would satisfy all my needs, and the Casio PX-160BK does just that. The quality in sound, to it's feel and action of the keys blew me away...If I close my eyes, I would swear I was sitting at an acoustic grand piano. Now, when you consider all the other features and connectivity along with the two-track recording, and the built-in Midi-USB controller, it makes it super easy to connect my iPad Air 2 to it using just one cable, so I can take advantage of the Apps developed by Casio for Apple. I can't say enough about this keyboard....get down to Guitar Center and check it out yourself ...you'll want to bring it home like I did....You Rock Casio !

    Comments about Casio PX-160BK Digital Piano:

    I bought this to replace a Korg work station. Wanted a 88 key that had good sound and quality without breaking the bank. Could not be happier with purchase. I definitely recommend for beginners as well as experienced players.

      Comments about Casio PX-160BK Digital Piano:

      I did about 12 hours of research on pianos before settling on this one. I also had a friend who has been playing piano for about 10 years tell me if this one was a good choice and she said the stats for it were great. It plays well and sounds great. I have had it for a few days so this is all I can say so far.

          According to Casio's website (and many others), this is the same as the PX-760 minus the integrated stand and extra speakers. Have been very happy with this and it will serve us for years to come.

          Upgrade from PX-150

          By Gregory

          from undisclosed

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Casio PX-160BK Digital Piano:

          Upgraded from PX-150 to PX-160. Fits the solid stand, pedal-board works. If you are dissatisfied with 150 sound, it is well worth it. An order of magnitude improvement in the overall sound both through on-board speakers and an external amp. What they've done physically is increase the volume of the case considerably, giving the speakers room to breathe. Electronically better samples with more complexity. The sound response of the pedals is also greatly improved. The whole PX family has very good feel; maybe it's the improved sound response, but the keys feel better. I'm no great pianist, but took lessons on real pianos, once upon a time. "piano experience" with solid stand and pedal-board is better than a good 3' upright, not as good as a good 5' upright. Casio really needs to come out with a better pedal-board, though.

          Almost Perfect Portable Piano

          Comments about Casio PX-160BK Digital Piano:

          If you're looking for a portable keyboard either for space or portability, this is the best you'll find at under $500. The keyboard mechanism is the same as used in the entire PX line, so offers a true weighted keyboard with excellent touch in a 26lb package. The textured keytops are nice, but require some time to get used to.

          The sound quality is excellent, especially if connected through the line outputs to an external sound system. If playing just with the internal speakers, the sound is a bit weak for serious play, but that can be improved with a subwoofer to aid in the lower end. If you're a beginning or intermediate player, you're unlikely to exceed the capabilities of this piano, but if you're an experienced player, you may find the output levels a bit low. The Yamaha P115 has better sound using just the built-in speakers, but I don't like the keyboard feel or the actual piano reproduction as well as on the PX160.

          One thing I wish was present is a line input to allow me to use the internal speakers to play mp3 musical accompaniment, but it's not a serious issue.

          Although there are 18 voices (tones) available, I rarely use anything other than the base grand piano. I occasionally use the harpsichord or organ, but that's just for playing around. The built in metronome works, but is a bit of a pain as it resets every time the keyboard is turned off, so it needs to be reset, again.

          The included pedal is a bit of a joke. Spend $15-$20 to buy a good sustain pedal. If you start to advance and want to be able to half pedal the sustain, there's an available stand and triple pedal unit that costs about $150 that will do the trick.

          There are about 60 built in pieces, mostly classical, that are fun to listen to, but exceed my ability to play (at least most of them).

              This casio was purchased for my granddaughter; we wanted an acoustic but it was not practical. I read some reviews, tried the casio at guitar center and was amazed what they've done with tone and action for the price. I was not interested in presets and demo music, but again was really pleased with casio's preset choices, and the 50 or so demo selections, all classic solo piano arrangements (no annoying rhythm tracks). Very enjoyable just for listening. We bought the package: piano, stand, bench and pedal. Everything arrived on time and in perfect condition. Love it.
