Casio Privia PX-160 Review
Casio is now an international brand known for many good products but specially for their keyboards. The Casio Privia PX-160 is a keyboard targeted towards apprentices and students looking for a good start at an affordable price.
One of the first things we can say about this keyboard is that is very good looking. Its high quality building highlights and could be a fine piece of furniture in your home.
In its specifications we have that it shows an 88-key keyboard absolutely well made. Nothing is loose in its construction making it very firm and sturdy, and it seems very intuitive, intended for beginners.
The front panel allows you to control all of its amazing features.
Pianos of this level don’t often have much decent sound quality and are a bit too noisy, but the internal speakers if the PX-160 sound surprisingly fine. It is loud enough for a regular room, without needing external speakers as shown in this Casio Privia PX-160 review .
This piano comes with a full 128-voice polyphony, so in this aspect it fits the standard of high-end keyboards. Learners will have this as an advantage to get to the sound of real pianos.
Each key is equipped with 3 sensors to provide the most accurate respond regarding the intensity of the touch. The synthetic material the keys are made of makes you feel like it’s real ivory, looking very elegant. The acoustic piano sound used by this Casio keyboard has a realistic hammer response, damper resonance, and damper noise, allowing you to have the most authentic sound and feel possible.
All of the PX-160’s keys are fully graded, meaning that the left-hand side of the keyboard with the lower register offers more resistance than the right-hand side with the higher register. The keys are also fairly quiet for an electric keyboard, which is quite uncommon for an entry-level piano.
You can connect the PX-160 to an external amplifier or speaker. It has two ¼ inch audio outputs for that matter, and you can also connect your headphones when playing alone. And las but not less important, a MIDI connector to record on your tablet or computer.
