Design and Features Of CT-X700
The design of the Casio CT-X700 is one of the first thing that gained my attention.
It has some nice built-in speakers with nice design elements like rounded corners and a sleek new angled front.
It features nice bright backlit white display and a unique smart phone shelf which helps you connect the headphone out of your phone to the audio in of the keyboards.
The connectivity also allows you to cancel any other audio or noise coming from your phone into the keyboard.
The unique feature which distinguish CT X 700 among its peers is the new AIX sound source.

The AIX sound source enhances the overall tone and produces wonderful high quality sound exactly like that of an acoustic piano.
It produces period accurate phaser taking you back in time. Which is an appropriate effect for this type of instrument.
The touch sensitive keys truly delivers what a touch response keys stands for.
The intensity of your press defines the audio level of the sound.

I fall in love with the quality of the sound (as I mentioned above) they are nice, clear and crisp.
