The PX-5S is part of the Casio Privia line of digital pianos. The PX-5S is loaded with a collection of acoustic pianos, vintage keyboard, and synth sounds, and has powerful controller features and sequencing tools that sets it apart from other keyboards.
POWERED BY AIR
At the heart of the PX-5S Stage Piano is Casio's proprietary AiR sound source which provides incredible realism, detail and expression for grand piano sounds. In the PX-5S, the power of AiR has been expanded to provide stunning fidelity and control over other instrument tones and effects with 256 notes of polyphony.
OLD SCHOOL, NEW CLASS
In addition to Privia's award winning grand piano sounds, the PX-5S has an arsenal of newly developed sounds including classic electric piano, harpsichord and clav sounds. Some of these tones are complete with release samples, amplifier and speaker simulations for an incredibly authentic experience.
The PX-5S is a powerful four zone controller, complete with 4 knobs and 6 sliders all of which are completely configurable to control internal sounds, effects parameters or send continuous controllers to other gear. Each zone on the PX-5S can control an internal sound, an external MIDI device or both simultaneously.
NEW SONIC TERRITORY
The PX-5S redefines what a stage piano should be, providing an arsenal of other sounds and creative tools. The PX-5S includes powerful Hex Layer tones complete with real-time filters and also features four programmable arpeggiators and multitrack phrase sequencing.

I bought an "open box" unit, it was not operating when I got it. It had a need for new firmware, which I downloaded. It had 2 keys which got connected hung up somehow. I sent it back. Then I got a new one in an unopened box. This one is great! I figure that another brand of keyboard would cost at least double, like say a Yamaha CP-4 or CP-40. I have had this a few days now. The keyboard has nice piano action, and 88 keys. It has a synthesizer ability to do more than just a stage piano. I am trying to learn how to really use it, I will have to read the additional downloaded information.
I purchased the PX5S about 3 months ago from Guitar Center. This keyboard is such a great value for the price. I had previously owned the PX3 for four years and I decided to "upgrade" to the PX5S based on reviews that I had read. The reviews cannot express the half of the enjoyment you will feel once you've taken time to play on this board. The features listed on the GC website provide the details and and specs you will want to explore, 88 keys, 4 zones (full keyboard programmable for each zone) each with an available arpeggiator and its own DSP, 6 sliders 4 knobs and 2 pedals all programmable with MIDI/CC for tons of expression possibilities. The 256 note polyphony available to Casio's AiR voice architecture can become a sonic arsenal either to layered patches or with phrases and MIDI SMF playability. The Casio/Privia website has great support for firmware upgrades, the free data/librarian editor software (an ABSOLUTE MUST to have with this board since you have on-screen programmability of every feature at your fingertips, plus the ability to build custom sets/data dumps, etc.). The online music forum and Facebook group has a community of friendly PX5S owners and enthusiasts. I joined immediately after my purchase and can say I have never seen such a more fun and knowledgable group of musicians that love this board. These folks love to share tips, tricks and even their own custom made stage settings, tones, patches, etc. Also, there are CASIO reps like Mike Martin that are there to answer any questions you might have about any of the features of the PX5S. I suggest you look up Youtube videos of Mike Martin either at NAMM or simply giving a tutorial so you can see this beast of a board in action. Lastly, if you are still unsure after reading reviews please seek our your nearest Guitar Center and go try and play the PX5S for a hands-on review. Just scroll through the pre-loaded stage settings and play with the knobs and sliders while you play. You will be amazed!!!
This is my first time stepping up into the privia lineup as I have been using the "WK" series since about 1997. The "AiR" engine is phenomenal-the piano sounds are authentic and the synth sounds are great too! Having the stage setups makes it very accessible to quickly get going; the hex layers and arpeggiators are VERY impressive! Haven't even begun to scratch the surface on what this bad boy can do but I'm extremely impressed!
