CASIO LAUNCHES NEW PRIVIA PX-160 DIGITAL PIANO

The PX-160 Offers New Design, Superior Speaker System and Innovative Sounds

DOVER, NJ, June 15, 2015 –Casio America, Inc. is proud to introduce the latest addition to its well-known Privia line of digital pianos – the PX-160. The new Privia digital piano features amazing new tones and enhanced performance capabilities, all in a refreshed design.

“At Casio, our goal is to provide first-class electronic musical instruments that help guide both beginners and professionals to musical success,” said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instrument Division. “We believe the Privia PX-160 achieves that goal as it is the most portable fully-weighted action digital piano on the market and offers a wide variety of advanced technological functions that music lovers want.”

As the successor to the popular Privia PX-150, this 88-key digital piano has an elegant style and includes a redesigned dual 8W speaker system. The speaker system is open to the front, but also ported to the back, which provides remarkable sound projected towards the audience. The Privia PX-160 even features left and right 1/4” audio outputs, which makes it easy for musicians to connect to other devices for external amplification or recording purposes.

Casio’s Privia PX-160 comes equipped with Casio’s acclaimed AiR technology, which redefines the digital piano experience with more of an expressive and powerful performance quality. The new multi-dimensional AiR sound generation included in the PX-160 features the sound of a 9-foot concert grand at four dynamic levels. The Privia PX-160 also provides newly developed string ensemble and electric piano tones derived from Casio’s award winning PX-5S stage piano. In addition, the PX-160 utilizes Casio’s remarkable Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard which features simulated ebony and ivory-textured keys for an incredible feel.
