The successor to the popular PX-150, the Privia PX-160 utilizes Casio’s famous AiR Sound Source and its remarkable Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard. With several enhancements in sounds and features over the previous generation, the PX-160 continues to provide world-class features and style.
New AiR Sound Source
Privia piano tones are sourced from recordings of world famous concert grand pianos. Casio’s new AiR (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) sound source provides unmatched realism and detail. This sound engine provides seamless dynamics for a remarkably expressive and powerful performance. The capacity of the installed memory has been largely expanded to allow longer samples and enhanced waveform data quality, while the Lossless Audio Compression technology allows reproduction of the original piano sample without deterioration of the original sound quality. Fine nuances such as the length of note reverberation and tonal colour are controlled by the player’s touch – just as on an acoustic piano.
New Speaker System
The PX160 introduces newly developed true-round speakers which are designed to provide a highly refined, yet deep and powerful sound. The new speaker system delivers the complex and intricate detail of a piano sound in the most accurate manner possible across the range from clear, delicate high tones, to powerful thumping bass tones.
The new AiR sound source reproduces the resonance created from using the damper pedal naturally through the use of a stereo resonance simulator for all 88 keys. The attention to detail goes so far as to simulate the resonance created by the lifting of the dampers themselves when the pedal is pressed. The resonance system allows players to perform with an unprecedented amount of expressive detail.
Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II
The new Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II responds to subtle variations in the time between detection of a keystroke and sound production, depending on the speed of the keystroke. The system uses three sensors that detect the keystroke sequentially, which also enables a sound to be produced repeatedly, even when the key has not fully returned to its resting position. The action relies solely on the weight of the hammer, which become progressively heavier towards the lower end and progressively lighter towards the higher end of the keyboard, simulating the characteristic of the action on a grand piano.
Line Out Terminal
The stereo Line Out terminal adds to the flexability of the PX-160, allowing the piano to be connected to external sound equipment such as an amp or PA system. This makes the PX160 a great choice for both home use and studio or live performance situations.
Simulated Ebony and Ivory Feel Keys
The simulated ebony and ivory keys offer the luxurious feel and texture of a grand piano keyboard. The texture allows maximum grip and avoids slipping of the fingers due to moisture.
Designed With Portability In Mind
The PX-160 can be used as a portable piano on its own, or combined in the Furniture Kit options with the CS67BK slim design stand and SP33 pedal board to create and attractive furniture piece to suit any home interior design. Also included in the Furniture Kit is a matching height adjustable piano bench. The piano is easily detached from the stand for maximum portability. Or choose the Pro Kit package which includes an SC700P padded gig bag and SP20 sustain pedal - great for the performer who needs to transport the digital piano from home to the gig. Whatever your scenario, the PX-160 can handle them all.
