This new trifecta frees the piano from its traditional confines against a wall with a mid-century modern design and a transparent music rest that invites gazes from every angle.

But, of course, this beauty is more than superficial, with each model featuring the finest acoustic piano sounds from the Privia family and a remarkable feel that is sure to engage and delight the experienced player.

Since its debut in 2003, the Casio Privia has earned an enviable reputation for its fully immersive sound, exceptional touch and alluring style, making it one of the best-selling digital pianos on the market. Innovation has remained at the heart of the range’s evolution, proving that digital instruments can deliver an elevated and truly professional playing experience without being bulky, heavy or expensive. Today, Privia is the thinnest digital piano in the world1 and won the 2021 Dealer’s Choice Award in two categories – Home Digital Keyboard of the Year and Pro Digital Keyboard of the Year – from the highly respected musical instrument industry publication Musical Merchandise Review. The latest models build on this historic legacy and render the zenith of Casio’s technological achievement in a form factor that perfectly matches today’s lifestyles and living spaces.

Privia PX-S7000

The PX-S7000, the flagship of this new family of instruments, is quite simply the best performing, nicest and best looking Privia ever made.

With brilliant styling to match its jaw-dropping sound and feel, the Privia PX-S7000 is a stunning musical centerpiece for any home. It sparks joy in any living space, with a striking modern design in three choices of finishes, including a new Harmonious Mustard color that evokes vintage musical equipment and fine European furniture, but pairs remarkably well with any decor.

Place your hands on the PX-S7000, and it immediately transcends its size. The instrument’s new Smart Hybrid Hammer Action keyboard and simulated ebony and ivory keytops connect the player’s fingers to the rich sound of three world-class concert grand pianos: Berlin, Hamburgand New York. A new and improved acoustic and intelligent resonator, derived from Casio’s high-end Celviano Grand Hybrid pianos, accurately reproduces the physical resonances inherent in the strings, soundboard, damper and other components of an acoustic piano . Improved key action provides a pleasantly quiet and smooth response, providing the overall experience of playing a well-tuned concert grand piano.

The PX-S7000’s 400 built-in sounds (including 50 electric piano sounds with tines, reeds, and other inspiring classical instruments) are enhanced with brilliant DSP effects, and many are designed to cover the keyboard parts of timeless songs world famous.

The top panel of the PX-S7000 is a shining example of elegance and simplicity. A touch ring that allows for easy scrolling and directional input complements the easy-to-read backlit display, illuminated touch controls, and color-changing pitch bend wheel. Four context-sensitive multi-function buttons give you quick access to your favorite sounds and settings. When you’re not playing, you can protect the beauty of your PX-S7000 with the included matching fabric key cover.

The included wooden stand incorporates a three-pedal set that supports half damping and stays firmly in one place on the floor. New 32-watt 4-way spatial sound system is driven by independent 8-watt amplifiers per speaker and is optimized to create the natural “bloom” of an acoustic piano, projecting an immersive sound field that envelops the player and fill the room. Additionally, the system can be set to be placed near a wall, away from walls, or on a table.

Privia PX-S6000

The Privia PX-S6000 inherits many high-end performance features found on the flagship model in the range, including intelligent hybrid hammer action, acoustic and intelligent resonator, 4-way spatial sound system, touch ring, backlit display and key cover. Players are treated to beautiful German concert sound thanks to the Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR sound source, while string and damper resonance, key action noise, and damper noise increase realism and expression as they play.

The 350 editable tones include immaculate detail Hamburg concert grand and 30 electric pianos, plus many that span the keyboard parts of timeless songs. The PX-S6000’s panel comes with two assignable control knobs, while the optional CS-90P wooden stand and SP-34 triple footswitch give the PX-S6000 all the presence and playability of its sibling, the PX -S7000.

PX-S5000

The PX-S5000 brings Casio’s Smart Hybrid Hammer Action keyboard to the most portable and accessible model. Featuring 23 tones, including one perfectly detailed Hamburg concert grand and 4-tone electric piano, the PX-S5000 is the perfect studio, stage, or parlor piano for anyone who needs to combine impeccable touch and sound with ultimate portability.

As on other models, the illuminated touch controls are easy to see and use in any light. They add elegance while eliminating moving parts and disappear when the instrument is turned off, creating a seamless and beautiful surface.

All three models come with the WU-BT10 Bluetooth adapter, which allows audio streaming through the Privias’ speakers from a device such as a smartphone, wireless MIDI communication with a computer, and connection to the Casio Music Space app. This do-it-all app for iOS and Android devices maximizes the Privia gaming experience with score display, game-like interactive lessons, full graphical control over all settings, and much more. Additionally, all models also feature a USB-B port for wired connection to a computer. For mobile music creation, the PX-S7000 and PX-S6000 can run for up to four hours on eight AA batteries; the PX-S5000 uses six.

“These new models are the uncompromising musical instruments that we always knew the Privia range could represent,” says Stephane Schmidt, vice president of Casio’s electronic musical instruments division. “Their premium sound and keyboard feel will appeal to the most discerning players, their ease of use and feature sets accommodate musicians of all skill levels, and their design turns heads whether they’re on stage, in the studio or in your family room, but they fit easily into a small apartment. We couldn’t be more proud of how far Privia has come.”
