Casio’s PRIVIA PX-S1000 delivers authentic grand piano sound and feel in a slim profile, with innovative features such as Bluetooth audio playback. The newly developed Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard makes its slim depth possible, creating a new level of portability without sacrificing authenticity. Going beyond the accepted standards for hammer-action keyboards, the new design reproduces the individual response characteristics of each of the 88 keys on a grand piano. The AiR Sound Source delivers the natural tone of a grand piano with string and damper resonance, and even includes mechanical damper and key sounds. With the PX-S1000’s Bluetooth audio playback feature, players can connect to their device and use the powerful built-in speaker system to listen or play along with their favorite songs.
