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.

The Sound Source
Casio’s proprietary sound source, "AiR" (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) provides the grand piano sounds in the PX-160. Casio meticulously recorded the sound of a 9-foot concert grand at 4 dynamic levels. The AiR engine delivers this sound with seamless dynamics for a remarkably expressive and powerful performance. Damper Resonance is simulated by AiR for uncanny realism when the damper pedal is used.

The Keyboard
The PX-160 utilizes Casio's famous Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard. This action features new simulated Ebony and Ivory textured keys for an incredible feel and its three sensors capture the dynamics of a performance with unparalleled speed and accuracy. Casio’s proprietary Hammer Response feature takes into consideration the speed at which different sized hammers move inside an acoustic grand piano relative to the velocity the keys are played. This timing nuance provides the ultimate key-to-sound experience that is unmatched by the standard actions of other brands.

New Sounds
The PX-160 also features newly developed string ensemble sounds. These rich stereo strings sound wonderful by themselves or layered with the PX-160's grand pianos, electric pianos, harpsichord and more. The electric pianos have also been updated providing some dynamic sounds derived from Casio's award winning PX-5S stage piano.

The PX-160 provides split and layer capability allowing you to play bass in your left hand and have two layered tones in your right. Duet mode allows the keyboard to be split into two equal ranges, so the student and teacher can use the piano simultaneously. A two track recorder can even record and playback your practice and performances.

Grand Sound System
The chassis has been redesigned not only to provide a more elegant look but also to accommodate a new 8w x 8w speaker system, which delivers the PX-160's remarkable sounds with the richness that they deserve. This speaker system is open to the front but also ported to the back, which provides remarkable sound when the PX-160 is placed against a wall. This also allows it to easily be used in a classroom or other environment where the sound will be projected towards the audience. Far superior to brands whose speaker systems are aimed mostly downward.

Features:
  • New Elegant look with Redesigned Speaker System
  • New String Ensemble and Electric Piano tones
  • Dual Headphone Outputs on Front
  • 1/4" Left and Right Line Outputs
  • Available in black or champagne gold colored finish

The optional CS-67 stand puts the PX-160 at the proper height and the optional SP-33 pedal system provides the same 3 pedal functionality as a grand piano

EXCELLENT 88 KEY KEYBOARD!

The keys have a natural weighted feel to complement the beautiful. natural piano sound. It has some great features for students like the ability to split the keyboard into two equal sections within the same range. This allows a teacher to help their student practice without the need for two keyboards. This is a real hands on product review from Andrew @ Sam Ash Torrance

Affordable real piano sounds, love the feel of this piano. The 3 sensors work extremely well, especially during fast lead runs. I am by no means a professional piano player but this piano almost makes me feel like I am, I sound great on it! Highly recommended, if you need a great piano at a great price this is the one!

Casio 160 Digital

4

This is a great beginning digital piano option. There are a wide array of available sound effects/settings to play around with on the piano. The new string sounds in particular are pretty cool. The unit is also pretty light so it's easy to transport when needed. Although the sound is much improved, it still isn't as realistic as some higher priced options. Nevertheless, I would still recommend this piano to anyone looking to start their digital piano journey. This is a real hands on product review from Sean @ Sam Ash Westminster.
