New Casio Pianos at Summer NAMM

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I spotted that three new Casio piano models  (AP270, PX870, PX770)  have been launched at Summer NAMM acouple of days ago, therefore I came over to the Forum to have a read about them.

Absolutely nothing anywhere.

I'm also surprised this hasn't gotten more attention.

 

In the news release, Casio says this:

"...Casio's new AP-270, Privia PX-770 and PX-870 boast a redesigned cabinet with all of the controls located on the side panel. These new models are equipped with a redesigned 88-key Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard with simulated ebony and ivory textured keys to reproduce the touch feeling of an acoustic piano while the weighted, scaled hammer action keyboard provides the depth and integrity of an acoustic piano. 

In addition, the AP-270 features both European and American concert grand piano tones with damper resonance and 22 tones; and the PX-770 and PX-870 feature an improved Stereo Grand Piano tone with damper resonance and 19 tones. Both the AP-270 and PX-770 have 128 note polyphony, while the PX-870 is outfitted with 256-note polyphony, a new Sound Projection Speaker System and Volume Sync EQ, Headphone mode and USB audio recording. These three models also offer Concert Play with 10 songs, three pedals, USB MIDI and two-track recording.

In September, the AP-270 (MSRP: $1,499.99), PX-770 (MSRP: $1,099.99) and the PX-870 (MSRP: $1,499.99) will all be available at select music dealers nationwide. To learn more about Casio's full portfolio of electronic musical instruments, please visit www.CasioMusicGear.com. "

 

I'd really like to get some more information about what has changed with the action. Does anybody know?

I've let  Namm pass this year its the second time now with summer namm mostly because of what was in the line. 

The only thing I wait for in anticipation from Casio is an Sa 78 form factor keyboard with the famous casio sounds

on it be it FZ, CZ ,XW people want that.
