Casio Privia 860
Utilizing Casio’s new proprietary sound source “AiR”, the PX-860 provides the amazing sound of a 9 foot concert grand piano. This grand piano sound is meticulously captured in stereo at four dynamic levels. The AiR sound source then delivers this sound with seamless dynamics for a remarkably expressive and powerful performance. For added realism AiR provides Damper Resonance for the rich sound of the strings when the sustain pedal is used and String Resonance to emulate the sympathetic resonance of the open strings in an acoustic grand. To further enhance the playing experience, the Hall Simulator provides simulations of the acoustics of real-world locations allowing you to experience playing the grand piano sound in a variety of locations.
The PX-860 features Casio’s 88 note Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard. This action is scaled to match the weight and resistance across the range of an 88 note grand piano. In addition, this action features simulated Ebony and Ivory textured keys for an incredible feel. Capturing your performance, Casio’s key action has three sensors to capture the dynamics of a performance with unparalleled speed and accuracy. To further enhance the experience, Casio’s Hammer Response feature takes into consideration the speed at which different sized hammers move inside acoustic grand relative to velocity the keys are pressed, this timing nuance provides the ultimate key to sound experience.
Not only does the PX 860 have great sounds it is very user friendly, and if you don’t play just go to the concert function and it will play itself. I had a customer come in today. She sat down to the piano and it took her breath away. She was not prepared to buy but she did say that she would have to talk wit her husband about the purchase of this piano. I am almost sure she will be back.
