AiR Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source
Privia’s piano tones are sourced from recordings of world-famous concert grand pianos. CASIO applies advanced technologies to optimize pianists’ expressive capabilities by faithfully reproducing their individual keystroke characteristics and the changes in sound quality and volume produced by an acoustic piano with the passage of time.
New Speaker System
Acoustics produced by the PX-160’s newly introduced true-round speakers and highly refined design provide deep, heavy sound, realizing luxuriant reverberations essential to the piano across the range from clear, delicate high tones to powerful, dignified, unbroken bass tones.
Various Instrumental Tones
Recent rapid quality enhancement of built-in tones, including many installed for the electric piano and strings, has opened up a varied range of performance possibilities.
Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II
Three advanced CASIO sensors accurately detect keystroke speeds and timing and employ them to realize subtle sounds and performance characteristics that might be expected only from an acoustic piano. The action mechanism emulates the deadweight of piano hammers to realize a natural touch like that of a grand piano, moreover, with heavier strokes required to reproduce low notes and a progressively lighter touch employed as the tones move up the scale.
Simulated ebony and ivory keys
Simulated ebony and ivory keys inhibit finger slippage due to sweat and produce the sensation of a comfortable fingertip fit that lasts even through extended sessions.
A LINE OUT terminal enables sound output from external speakers in addition to the built-in speakers, adding to the pleasure of playing at parties or performing live in various venues away from home.
