The Detailed Analysis
Coming directly to the point, the sound of the new version "BK" of Casio PX 150 have been completely redesigned.
The sound of PX 150 is generated by the new A i R sound source. A i R meaning Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator.
When you’re using the damper pedal or sustain pedal you hear the sound of the damper virtually lifting off the strings.
When you touch the Piano you will surely find the entire body of the acoustic piano feels superb and is well built, and the sounds of PX 150 is incredibly natural and wonderful.
Casio Privia PX 150 BK has all new piano samples. It also offers more than three times the sample memory as compared to the previous generation Privia PX 150 which makes it a better option to opt for.
Privia PX 150 "BK" also features a new redesigned keyboard action. It has a scaled weighted hammer action keys, meaning that the keys are heavier on the low-end and lighter as you move up just to simulate the hammer weights of an acoustic piano.
In addition the key tops on the PX 150 have a new ebony and ivory texture which feels much better than the plastic key that you find on some cheap digital pianos.
The Ebony and Ivory textures feels just like the keys of an acoustic grand piano and your hand is able to move around the keyboard very easily and very nicely. The ebony and ivory textures also reduces the sweats in hands so you can play it for longer time.
The Casio Privia PX-150 features 18 different instrument tones on board. Five of those are acoustic grand piano sounds but you will also get electric pianos, organs, strings and bass.
And the best part is you can split and layer the keyboard at the same time, so you can simultaneously have bass in your left hand with piano and strings in your right.
The PX 150 also feature Casio’s duet mode this allows for student and teacher to work side-by-side, and each having a middle C with 2 equally divided ranges of the piano to work on.
Privia PX 150 also has two headphones outs on the back so student and teacher can work together without disturbing anyone else in the house.
The another great benefit that the keyboard has is the remarkably portable body.
Although its weights around 25 pounds which is not much (25 pound is the lightest weighted action digital piano) so you can carry your board wherever you like for rehearsals or performance and also does not hurt your back like other heavy digital pianos.
The PX 150 includes a songbook with 60 songs and those songs are also built into the keyboard. In fact you can play independently on the left and right hand parts as you follow along with the music and slow them down too.In short it is a all in one great teaching tool.
You can also use their two track recorder to record your own performances so it’s great way for you to compose your own music on the PX 150 and listen back whenever needed for further alteration.
For connectivity and expansion the PX-150 does have a USB slot on the back which allows you to connect your Mac or PC very easily. It easily connects with smart devices because Privia products are globally class compliant. So you just need to plug it into your computer and they work without having to downloads drivers saving you from lots of headache.
In addition to the songbook the PX 150 ships with a foot switch a music rack and the included power supply and owner’s manual.
My Experience With Casio Casio PX 150 Digital Piano
So, In short I can conclude that Casio Privia PX 150 is good piano if you are a beginner or an intermediate. The price of Casio Privia PX 150 is also not on higher end and is worth your investment if you are a serious toward your music.
The only thing I can complain about is that the sound of speakers, they are quite good but still it has lots of room for improvement.
Loaded with recorder, 88 hammer action keys, split mode, 2 headphone slots and inbuilt lesson feature are one of the most needed feature by anyone who is just starting of to learn piano.
That's all from our end hope this review of Casio PX 150 helped you in making a better decision.
