I've just acquired a px160 privia piano. The backup facitlity initially worked, now it doesn't. I've tried doing a factory reset ie powering on the keyboard with the function and electric piano buttons pressed but that hasn't worked. Has anyone any ideas on this please?
Hi guys, I've just bought this piano brand new from Thomann (really great shop to buy music instruments) but don't know what to think. I don't have many experiences with digital pianos and I've learned that Casio keyboards are generally more noisy comparing with Yamaha and I'm fine with that but one of the keys is extremely clunky on back stroke. What is even worse it is E4 key. Sounds like keyboard or hammer is touching some plastics when returning to it's default position. Like there is no damping on that place. There is another one which is a bit more noisy than rest but not as bad at this one. The rest of the keyboard is OK. I've made a video of that so what do you guys think ? Return and replace ? What are the odds to get another one with the same issue ? It's kind of expensive to send back to Germany. I'm not sure if it's a defect or not. Is this rare thing or normal for Casio keyboards ? The noise is pretty annoying during play and I can hear it even with headphones. Also it's not pleasant once the finger leave the key. Everything works flawlessly but this is pretty distracting. Thanks for your opinions...
I would HUGELY appreciate any help I can get with the following issue. Can anyone please tell me if the main (best) piano voice on the Casio PX560 is better sounding than the main (best) piano voice on the PX160? I am not speaking of how those respective piano voices sound through the onboard speakers, but rather, how they sound through the output jacks used for recording or PA amplification. The reason I'm asking is this: I only became aware of the quality of the Casio line of pianos one week after buying a competitive piano and I'm wondering if I should return the piano I bought and get a Casio. Please let me explain further my dilemma. I just went to a store where they have the keyboard I bought sitting on their display floor plus they also have the Casio PX160 and the Casio CGP-700, but they don't have the PX360 or PX560. So I did the best I could to compare the pianos available for comparison. I used headphones to listen very carefully to the line-out quality of the three pianos and it seemed to me (1) that the PX160 and CGP-700 sounded virtually identical if not identical. And (2) I preferred the piano I bought a week ago a bit more than both of the Casios, but I know this is a matter of personal taste. So here's what's keeping me on my hunt: I immensely love the display screen on the Casio keyboards, so I'm wondering: Did I do a fair comparison? In other words, if I paid the extra money to buy a PX560 (which the store didn't have to try out), would I be getting a significantly better piano sound (through the output ports) than the PX160 or CGP-700 I heard? I know the PX560 has a lot more features than the PX160. That's clear to me. But just in terms of the electronics or internal sound engine, will the best piano voice on the PX560 sound better than the best one on the PX160 or are they really identical? Thank you so much for your help.
I just received my px160 today. It plays and sounds great. I just have one concern. There seems to be glue in between some of the keys on the lower end. It doesn't affect the sound or action as far as I can tell. I just wanted to check if this was somewhat normal or if it is something I should be concerned about? I have pictures if that would help. Thanks.
